MLB's replay NOC is pretty bad-ass

And yes, we all wish we had a living room like this:

Five monitors stretch across the top of the wall, and beneath are eight, 46-inch screens split into two rows. Each television can show one picture, or be split into nine, 16, 25 or 100 angles at once.

And I did find this interesting as it only serves to prove how big an overreaction to the instant replay we've all witnessed. Truth told, the impact will be negligible:
MLB estimates it will take 2 minutes, 30 seconds for replays to be reviewed, and that so far this year about 18 calls would have sparked video checks.
Eighteen calls all year? Oh the humanity. The games are long enough!!!
