In speaking to a gathering of Baseball Writers Association of America members today MLB executive vice president Joe Torre revealed that he’s “pretty confident” expanded instant replay will be in place for next season.

Players would have to sign off on any agreement, so Torre also made it clear that “we’re still in the tweaking stages” and “we’re not limiting ourselves.”

Of course, it’s also worth noting that Bud Selig said similarly optimistic things last October about having expanded replay for 2013, only to have Torre announce in February that it wasn’t happening.
