Re "Challenging loss for S.F." (Sports, May 7): Instant replay in baseball stinks. The Giants and Pirates tied in the ninth on Tuesday. Pirate runner is called out at home by the umpire, game still tied. Hold on, the call is appealed. Now the runner is safe, game over.

Why have umpires at all then? Have robots do eveything.
