NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball hopes to expand video review by umpires for the 2014 season and says all calls other than balls and strikes could be subject to instant replay.

Commissioner Bud Selig and MLB executive vice president Joe Torre say they still can't commit to expanded replay for next year. Torre hopes to have proposals by the August owners' meeting.

Replay has been in place for potential home run calls since August 2008. Selig initially wanted to add trap plays and fair/foul calls down the lines, but Torre said a far larger expansion is possible.

Selig and Torre spoke Thursday after a quarterly owners' meeting. Torre made his presentation to owners following two high-profile mistakes by umpires last week.

Says Torre: "Have we had a bad week or so? Yeah."
