Baseball GM's Pass on Expanding Replay
CHICAGO (AP) -- Baseball general managers failed to take a vote on expanding instant replay following a postseason filled with blown calls by umpires.

Baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, but only to determine whether potential home runs were fair or foul or cleared fences. Commissioner Bud Selig said he opposed expanding replay but that baseball would review its implementation.

Jimmie Lee Solomon, executive vice president of baseball operations in the commissioner's office, said GMs listened Tuesday to a report on replay but didn't take any votes and confined their discussion to the current system.
