Argument: Instant replay will make baseball games too long
Steve Hirsch. "Why instant replay is unnecessary." Huffington Post. June 4, 2010: "The most used argument against instant replay is that it would increase the length of games, which is clearly true. The more managers protest, the more plays get reviewed, and the more games get prolonged. I love baseball more than anyone I know, but even I don't want baseball games lasting longer than they already do. Can you imagine how long Yankee-Red Sox playoff games would last with instant replay? Baseball would find its way into December! With as many warm up throws that the pitcher takes, the time in between each pitch in late innings, the time it takes to get pitchers warm in the bullpen, baseball is already long enough. Making it longer would just drive more fans away from the ballpark."
