WORKING OUT THE REPLAY KINKS: In Cincinnati, C. Trent Rosecrans noted replay official Gerry Davis after a challenge during yesterday's Reds-D-Backs game "didn't get the call right, which isn't how the system is supposed to work." Davis had "just four replay angles to choose from, none of them were the one aired on TV." All four angels came from "static cameras and none with zooming capabilities." Davis after a delay of "two minutes and 15 seconds, ruled there wasn't conclusive evidence to overturn the call." Only after that was "made official, did Davis get the fifth angle, the one that was shown on TV." MLB Dir of Major League Umpires Randy Marsh said, "It was an umpire's nightmare. With that view, they would have flipped the call, but they didn't get it until it was over." Reds manager Bryan Price said, "I'm aware of what happened, but (still happy) as far as how the protocols go, and engaging and the do's and don't's" (CINCINNATI.com, 3/9).
