Instant Replay In Effect Thursday

Replay will go into use with three series scheduled to open Thursday: Philadelphia at the Chicago Cubs, Minnesota at Oakland and Texas at the Los Angeles Angels. For other games, replays will be available to umpires starting Friday.

For the initial deployment, Instant Replay will only be used to help Home Run rulings.

I'm all for this as long as the replay officials can keep the interruptions brief. For opponents who argue that this will cause games to be intolerably long, I have a suggestion: speed up pitching changes.

What's your take?
