Does anyone else think that expanding the replay system will ruin baseball. I'm fine with homeruns being reviewed but if they go any farther such as fair and foul ball, plays at the plate, and on the bases it will kill baseball. Human error is apart of the game that's what makes it great. We're not Football either.

Human error shouldn't be instrumental in deciding games. MLB's number one concern is protecting the integrity of the game. The problem is that there are more close plays in baseball than any other sport. But how can an ump be certain that a ball is fair when it's 100 ft away from them? The umps need help out there and technology will help bridge that gap. Boundary calls such as Fair/Foul and HR's are objective calls. They should be reviewable. I would even allow plays at plate.

Agreed. There should also be a panel of dedicated video umpires who don't interact with the managers at all and have final say on reviewed calls to avoid Angel Hernandez situations.
