Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon is brushing off all the talk about delays and keeping the human element in baseball. He says it's about time for expanded replay.
Players and managers at ballparks across the country largely welcomed Thursday's announcement of the proposed video review options for next season. Many said they wanted to take a closer look at the details of the plan, but were in favor of anything that would help umpires make the correct call.
Maddon says "It makes things better. It makes things more accurate, so what's wrong with that."
A 75 percent vote by the owners is needed for approval, and the players' association and umpires would have to agree to any changes to the current system.
