As much as I love the NFL, they must be called out for not having goal line technology in place at a bare minimum in order to assist the officials in getting touchdown calls correct.

MLB Postseason Sports Technology

Now, it is true that for many of the MLB’s broadest and most enthusiastic fan bases and sportsbiz, this postseason has already lost some of its luster. The Yankees and Phillies, favorites in many people’s eyes to reach the World Series, both lost in the first round. The Red Sox failed to make the playoffs.
