Selig: I have no desire to expand instant replay

Commissioner Bud Selig's position on expanding instant replay has not changed.

He is against it.

"I don't really have any desire to increase the amount of replay — period," Selig told on Monday.

Talk of expanding replay beyond boundary calls on home runs resumed after a missed call down the left-field line on a ball hit by Joe Mauer in the 11th inning of Game 2 of the Twins' series against the Yankees.

Mauer's ball bounced several inches fair, but left-field umpire Phil Cuzzi ruled that it was foul. Cuzzi later admitted to the Newark Star-Ledger that he had made a mistake.

"This goes on every time there's a controversial call," Selig said. "I understand the Phil Cuzzi call and others. But frankly, I'm quite satisfied with the way things are.

"We need to do a little work, clean up some things. But do I think we need more replay? No. Baseball is not the kind of game that can have interminable delays."
