    Toronto should challenge that call at first on the double play. Looked safe.

    Just paused it at the exact perfect moment. Theres no way instant replay can help on a play like that. Granted there are enough amazingly horrible calls to make replay worth it.

    Might have challenged if it hadn't already been getting late in a runaway ST game.

    But it will be interesting to see how use develops.

    I wish Gardenhire was at this game, it makes no sense but I feel like he would go nuts when this call is reversed.

    Another case of the call on the field being more important then what the replay showed. I wasn't 100% sure he was out but I was more then 75%

    Yes, but I believe that the league has explicitly asked teams to exercise this option a little more freely during the spring (and in the AFL last year), if only to help accelerate the QA process before the season starts.

    Just got home from the game, as my 90 old mother got pretty hot and called it quits. Maybe I should go back. On the Hicks play, he was going all the way, and looked like he had it made. The ball looked to me to roll under a folding chair the ball boy was on and Dozier kept on coming. The Toronto folks sitting next to us hadn't had a thing to cheer about yet when I left. Dozier is right on the ball. Even on the k he fouled off 2 two strike pitches before missing.

    "Routine Fly Ball"

    Nothing is routine in ST.

    12-2

    Overall a horribly played game by Toronto. I'll take all these walks once the season starts but in the Spring they're just annoying.

    Get rid of replay immediately. This is awful.

    Can't wait to see the first manager go nuts following a 4 minute review. In the case of baseball no reason to review 50/50 calls. Correct the horrible calls without wasting time, this system will not accomplish that.

    If I'm a manager I don't request an instant replay all spring. I really don't want to have to worry that a challenge in a 12-2 spring game will be remembered during the season. And I really don't care about any call in a one run spring game either.

    2 triples from the Santana kid. Might have a shot at the opening day roster.
