MIAMI -- Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond liked the idea of being able to challenge reviewable on-field calls, though MLB's new replay pitch did raise a few questions in his mind.
"I definitely have some concerns, probably like anyone does about the challenges, but I'm sure those will all be answered in time," Redmond said before Friday night's homestand opener against the San Francisco Giants.
"I think everyone's in favor of getting the calls right. I think the biggest question is always going to be the pace of play."
Commissioner Bud Selig on Thursday said Major League Baseball planned to expand its video review process next season, giving managers the ability to challenge reviewable on-field decisions.
MLB plans to give managers one challenge during the first six innings of a game, then two from the seventh inning on. Challenged calls will be reviewed and decided by a league crew in New York City.

Going into the 2012 season, Stanton was expected to be the focal point and franchise player of an All-Star Marlins team. Heading into 2013, Stanton was essentially the only recognizable name remaining on the Marlins after the blockbuster trade with the Blue Jays. On the 45-73 Marlins, Stanton often finds himself sandwiched in between “All-World” players Adeiny Hechevarria and...
The number 42 is iconic in baseball for one reason: Jackie Robinson. Mariano Rivera is the last baseball player that will ever wear the number, which marks 2014 as the first year no major leaguer will wear the ground-breaking number on the back of their jersey ever again. Maybe they should change that rule to allow Justin Ruggiano to celebrate the streak he just broke yesterday...

The San Francisco Giants and Miami Marlins can partially attribute their disappointing seasons to struggling offenses that have scored fewer runs than any other in the NL.
Chad Gaudin and especially Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi are plenty familiar with their team's scoring woes.
Eovaldi hasn't received any run support in his last five starts, and he'll oppose Gaudin...
