More replay: necessary or not?

I know replay isn't always popular among every baseball fan, however i think it's a progression that needs to catch up with other sports who have already or continue expanding their replays for more accuracy. The technology is there, so why not use it? To say "it should always be the human element calling games" is somewhat of antiquated notion. Yes, human umpires are still calling the shots, but how does an umpire feel when eventually finding out he made a terrible call that cost one team a chance to win or tie, and for another to lose. When you have a chance to correct or limit errors, why not take that chance? In any other profession, we're always looking to correct or limit errors down to minimum. Now i'm not saying balls and strikes should be called by robots, but at least limit the human fallacies on the basepads and foul lines.

I'm wondering how others feel about expanded replay McC. Give me your thoughts.
