3* Do you participate in a fantasy baseball league either for fun or money during the season?

 

4* How many Major League baseball games will you go see in person this season?

 

5* Starting this season, Major League baseball has expanded instant replay beyond home run and other boundary calls. Each team manager will have one replay challenge to start the game, and can challenge one additional play if any portion of the first challenged play is overturned. Do you favor or oppose the expanded use of instant replay in baseball?

 

6* How worried are you that the expanded use of instant replay will make baseball games too long?

Do you favor or oppose this rule?

 

8* Should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame?
