HUGE NEWS: Expanded replay has been added at a whole new level for 2014! The new system, which will go into effect this season, will give managers most of the power to trigger reviews, by providing them with one challenge per game, along with a second potential challenge if their first is upheld. Only after a manager has used up all of his challenges, and only from the seventh inning on, would umpires be authorized to initiate a review on their own. Baseball officials paved the way for Thursday's vote by negotiating late deals with the Major League Baseball Players Association and with the Major League Umpires Association. Sources said an agreement with the players' union wasn't finalized until Wednesday night.
