Blown Call Provides Boost for Red Sox, But MLB Needs More Instant Replay to Prevent Mistakes (Video)

The Red Sox caught a break during Monday's game when the umpires mistakenly ruled that Mike Aviles had fouled a ball into the dirt when Tigers catcher Gerald Laird had indeed caught the ball.

Instead of striking out and ending the inning, Aviles continued his at-bat, and the Red Sox went on to score three more runs.

If the umps had gotten the call right, then the game might have turned out a little differently for both the Red Sox and the Tigers. Even though the Sox got lucky this time, NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers if they think baseball needs expanded instant replay to make sure they get more future calls right.

Check out what fans had to say in the video above and leave your thoughts on how MLB should approach replay in the comments below.
