Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon has a message for the opponents of expanded replay in baseball, the critics who talk about the human element and the pace of the game. Nike MLB Jerseys . Go all the way, he said. "I really challenge them to go back and throw away all this new stuff. Microwaves, throw it away," Maddon said. "Take away all these comforts of this technology thats sprung up over the last how many years to make our lives better. To just bury your head in the sand and just reference old school all the time to me is a really poor argument." While Maddon was ready to dive straight into expanded replay, much of baseball offered a tentative endorsement of Thursdays proposal for increased video review options for next season. Atlanta Braves President John Schuerholz, a member of baseballs replay committee along with former managers Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, said 89 per cent of incorrect calls made in the past will be reviewable, but he did not provide a list. "Im all for getting calls right. Thats a good thing," Twins catcher Joe Mauer said. "I really havent seen the changes that are going to be made, so I really dont have an opinion on that. But to make the game better, thats what were all striving for." A 75 per cent 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. But most players and managers seemed pleased while waiting to learn more about the new system. "Im all for it, reviewing the plays," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "I am, and how we do it, Im not set in a certain way, but I think its a good thing. I think most managers are all for it, too, and I think most umpires. Its all about getting it right so Im excited to hear this has a strong possibility to be part of the game." Umpires have come under increased scrutiny following several missed calls this season. Managers will be allowed one challenge over the first six innings of a game and two from the seventh inning until the completion of the game. Balls and strikes are not reviewable, and challenged calls are settled by a crew at MLB headquarters in New York City, which will make a final ruling. The amount of challenges and the emphasis on the last part of the game drew the attention of several managers. "I just dont like the idea that the earlier part of the game is considered less important than the latter part of the game," Maddon said. "Thats all. I know weve lost games in the first inning. You could lose games in the second inning." Royals manager Ned Yost thinks three challenges is too many. "Its more than we need," he said. "Im sitting back and thinking, probably in the last two weeks or three weeks, I cant think of three balls I would have challenged, but its still nice to have the ability to be able to do it." A manager who sees a call he feels is incorrect can file a challenge with the crew chief or home plate umpire. Only reviewable plays can be challenged. Non-reviewable plays can still be argued by managers, who can request that the umpires discuss it to see if another member of the crew saw the play differently. Reviewable plays cannot be argued by the manager. Challenges not used in the first six innings will not carry over, and a manager who wins a review will retain it. The home run replay rules currently in use will be grandfathered in to the new system, Schuerholz said. "I think the biggest thing is that everybody watching the game knows at home -- you know, because they replay it -- so we want to make sure the calls get right," said pitcher C.J. Wilson, the union rep for the Angels, "and weve had some instances where the calls havent been right over the last couple years. "Thats why weve gone to the replay thing, is because the seasons coming down to the last game for some of these teams that are in the wild-card race or whatever," he said, "and if they lose a game because of a replay that doesnt happen, you can imagine how upset they would be." One of the biggest concerns is slowing down the game. Schuerholz said with a direct line of communication between the central office and the ballparks the expectation is that replays under the new system will take 1 minute, 15 seconds. Current replays average just over 3 minutes. Some said the use of replay could have a positive effect on the pace because it will prevent many on-field arguments. "I like the fact that I dont have to argue with the umpires, because Im not a good arguer to begin with," Yost said. "I lose my mind, I start using bad language, and you dont get anywhere. ... I just think this is going to be a much, much better system." Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys . Louis Blues have returned to the top spot in the TSN. Soccer Jerseys 2020 . Last year, Matt Kuchar closed with a 4-under 68 to beat Kevin Chappell by two strokes for his second win of the 2013 season and sixth of his career.Jermain Defoes former manager is reportedly very interested in getting his striker back. According to a report in The Guardian, Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp - who managed Defoe with both Portsmouth and Tottenham - is interested in bringing the 32-year-old back to London. Though no deal is in place between QPR and Toronto FC, Redknapp went on record to state that he would welcome Defoe back to the Premier League. “He’s a player we’d be interested in in January, but it depends on the expense of the deal,” Redknapp told The Guardian. “Nothing is anywhere near being concluded. We tried to get him before the deadline but I don’t think there’s been any movement on that one. Defoe signed a four-year deal with TFC prior to the 2014 Major League Soccer season, but was rumoured to be unhappy in Toronto mid-way thhrough his first season. Nike NFL Jerseys 2020. In 19 games with the club in 2014, Defoe scored 11 goals. He would help lead Toronto FC to a strong start, with a 6-1-4 (19 points) record in the clubs first 11 contests. However, injuries would keep Defoe off the pitch for much of the second half of the season, with rumours of his return to the Premier League resurfacing near the end of the Fall transfer window. He appeared in just six contests after July 16, failing to score a single goal for the remainder of the season after 11 in 13 matches. “I’m a big fan of Jermain’s – I’ve signed him enough times, Redknapp said. He’s a goalscorer and a player you’d obviously like at your club if possible, but the figures would have to be right. I haven’t spoken to the chairman about it yet. We’ll see. I know what we need.” ' ' '
