Did you really expect baseball commissioner Bud Selig to stand before the cameras Thursday and declare that, effective immediately, every pitch is subject to instant replay?

Of course you didn’t. You’re a baseball fan. You understand your sport. You know it isn’t perfect. You also know that, in time, Major League Baseball usually gets it right. And that is what the latest umpiring/replay drama is all about: Baseball is trying to get it right.

In time, that will happen.

Last week was bad for baseball, between the Angel Hernandez and Fieldin Culbreth umpiring controversies. This week was better. After the round of owners’ meetings that concluded Thursday, it’s apparent that the sport is evaluating expanded replay with more seriousness, and in greater detail, than ever before. Change is coming, probably sooner rather than later.

That doesn’t mean MLB umpires will make every call correctly. They haven’t before. They won’t now. Joe Torre, the MLB executive vice president of baseball operations, made clear Thursday that balls and strikes won’t be reviewable. So your gripes about inconsistent strike zones will continue.

But everything else is up for discussion. Torre said he remains “hopeful” that expanded replay will be in place for next season. Selig said his opinion on replay has “evolved” over time, and his tone on the issue is one of open-mindedness rather than obstruction. Torre said he doesn’t believe the technology’s expense will be an issue. The umpires aren’t standing in the way, either.
