Is instant replay really coming to Major League Baseball? Top executives in the MLB operations offices, namely Rob Manfried, executive vice president of labor relations and Jimmie Lee Solomon, vice president in charge of baseball operations would like to see it instituted by mid-August. Not so fast, so says sources in Selig's office and John Hirschbeck, head of the World Umpires Association. This debate does not seem likely to be settled in a mere 6-8 weeks. Where do you stand on this issue, readers? Not just should it happen but should it happen in the middle of a season??
