YER OUT! I think...
"It took six umpires during Game 1 of the American League Division Series to decide whether Yankees right fielder Greg Golson had caught a line drive by the Twins’ Delmon Young — and they still got it wrong. Anyone with access to a television could see that Golson had caught the ball fairly."
Should there be scorecards for umpires?  How about that?  What if decisions were made based on instant replays which would trump the calls of umpires?  There are a lot of great umpires but it's high time the game embraces technology.  The fans, as the article states, "deserve better".
Here is an illustration for today's Op Ed for The New York Times, it was art directed by the amazing Aviva Michaelov.
