Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Detroit Tigers TV Play-By-Play Announcer Mario Impemba sets us up for the Giants 3-game series at Comerica Park starting on Tuesday.
Impemba agrees with The Sports Virus that replay isn’t good for Major League Baseball: “…I was kind of on the fence about replay and now I just hate it…I understand getting it right, but a lot of times we’ll show three or four replays of the play and because it may show that a guy was safe but it was still a very close play and the call on the field was out, they’re going to stick with the call on the field because it was too close to call, even though you probably could tell the guy was safe…Yes, you want to get the call right, I agree, but we’ve played this game for 100 years without replay and it did pretty well. Now we’re just bogging down the game…It’s getting to the point now where I think we’re losing fans because baseball is slow to begin with and it’s a more methodical and cerebral game, but if you slow it down even more it’s going to be difficult to capture the youth these days.”
Come back Sunday when we podcast from AT&T Park in San Francisco as the Giants host the Marlins.
