Joe Torre, the Major League Baseball’s executive vice president of baseball operations, has told the Los Angeles Times Bill Shaikin that instant replay changes are on ice for 2013, but “there will be something, for sure” in 2014. ICYMI: Joe Torre on why the expanded replay promised for this year is now targeted for next year: lat.ms/151viIq — Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) February 18, 2013 As part of the article, Torre added: “It’s not like we’re afraid to do something. I don’t want to do something unless we feel like it’s the right thing to do.  Let’s do it the right way and have a formula that will work, without making the game stand still” Replay could not overturn this “safe” call in the 2012 ALCS After a number of blown calls in the 2012 postseason (in what seems like an October tradition), smart money seemed to be on changes on the “lowest lying fruit” (like fair/foul down the lines, trap plays, tag/no tag) would be a no-brainer and wouldn’t require extensive implementation protocol.  But Major League Baseball doesn’t seem ready just yet. Bud Selig has yet to officially kill changes for 2013, but the handwriting appears to be on the wall. While MLB appears to trail most of the other major sports in replay, I do appreciate the careful nature of the decision, and avoiding knee-jerk reactions. -Dave (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball
