GMs discuss more replay, September roster changes

- Associated Press - Wednesday, November 7, 2012

INDIAN WELLS, CALIF. (AP) - In between trade talks and early negotiations with free agents, baseball general managers considered some wide-ranging changes that include broader use of instant replay by umpires, changed roster limits for September and protective headgear for pitchers.
