Examples of how other pro sports use replay: NBA Officials can use replay to see if a shot was released before time expired. Replay also determines which players should be ejected after a brawl or flagrant fouls. Replay can determine if a shot is worth two or three points, or to decide possession on balls that go out of bounds. It may also be used if the game clock malfunctions to determine the correct amount of time left. Beginning this season, it can be used to review a block/charge play to see if the defender was inside or outside the restricted area.

DETROIT -- Saturday was not a good day for the Angels, who got a leadoff home run from J.B. Shuck and nothing else against Detroit co-ace Max Scherzer in a 5-2 loss that ended their improbable winning streak over the Tigers at 10 games dating to September 2012. It was not a good day for Angels center fielder Mike Trout, 22, who made history of a different sort with the first four-strikeout game of his career, three against Scherzer and one against closer Joe Nathan. It was not a very good day for the umpires, who missed two calls on the bases.

Jeff Nelson was the umpire closest to Alex Rodriguez's fourth-inning line drive into the right-field corner. But he didn't have the best view of it. "In this particular play the ball hit something hard, solid," he said. "In my judgment it was the top of the fence." Another umpire, Joe West , thought the ball hit a fan. That left enough doubt among the six-man officiating crew for crew chief Gerry Davis to ask for a video replay, the first time an umpire has done that in postseason history.

SEATTLE -- Josh Hamilton injured his left thumb sliding head-first into first base Tuesday night, but that didn't prevent the Angels left fielder from giving Major League Baseball two thumbs down to an instant-replay ruling in the fifth inning of the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. With a runner on second and one out, Corey Hart lofted a fly ball to deep left that Hamilton appeared to catch above his head and pull toward his body, but the ball squirted out on the glove-to-hand transfer and fell to the ground.

In the seventh inning of the Dodgers' home opener Friday, Hanley Ramirez was called safe as he tried to steal second base. After a replay review, Ramirez was called out. Here is what happened in the interim: San Francisco Giants Manager Bruce Bochy sauntered out of the visiting dugout, shuffling toward second base. Managers no longer rush onto the field to challenge an umpire, because they need to buy some time for their video staff to determine whether a play should be challenged.

On the heels of two controversial calls that angered fans in two cities, Major League Baseball appears to have decided on an expansion of instant-replay review by umpires in time for the 2014 season. Commissioner Bud Selig has gone on record in past years as wanting very limited video reviews, including only trapped-ball plays and fair/foul calls down the lines. The new guidelines, if approved, would allow replay review of almost everything except for balls and strikes. Currently, only home run calls are subject to review.

  Join us at noon today for a live Google+ Hangout chat with national college football columnist Chris Dufresne, USC football writer Gary Klein, UCLA football writer Chris Foster and Deputy Sports Editor John Cherwa as they discuss the college football season. USC and UCLA both opened the season with easy victories, but the road will get much tougher for the Bruins this week when they take on Nebraska. USC dropped to No. 2 in the AP rankings despite their victory, though they rose to No. 2 in the coaches' poll.

I don't understand the philosophy of the NFL officials on the use of the replay review cameras. Twice in the last 2 weeks, the replay footage has shown Ram opponent receivers to be clearly juggling balls while out of bounds. The officials, however, refused to use the review film on these plays, but they did review an Eagle catch by a receiver who was more than a foot in bounds. If I were John Robinson, I would ask the commissioner why the NFL has these review cameras on the field if the officials refuse to use them in questionable-call situations.

Three referees and a technician huddled at the scorer's table late Sunday afternoon and determined, after a lengthy review, that next week's Final Four in North Texas was set. Utilizing information culled from hundreds of cameras set up at games around the country over two weeks, the NCAA confirmed the schools moving on as Florida, Connecticut, Wisconsin and Kentucky. The NCAA also announced the MVEI (most valuable electronic instrument) of the Elite Eight was the replay monitor.

SAN DIEGO - The game between the Dodgers and San Diego Padres on Sunday broke in Major League Baseball's expanded instant replay system. Well, kind of. Neither team challenged a call in the Padres' 3-1 victory. Manager Don Mattingly didn't sound particularly concerned with the implementation of the new technology, even though it wasn't available to the Dodgers until they hosted the Angels on Thursday in the opening game of the Freeway Series. The new system wasn't in effect for the Dodgers' season-opening, two-game series in Australia against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

I liked Major League Baseball's decision to dramatically expand its use of instant replay, believing it was time for a sport that is often resistant to change to embrace technology the way the NFL, NBA and NHL have. But after seeing the replay process play out - rather clumsily at times - this spring, I'm less of a fan. The new system requires too many layers of evaluation and communication, and it is sure to disrupt the flow of games. First, the manager, in what amounts to an on-field filibuster, must initiate a discussion with an umpire to give his video coordinator time to review the play to determine whether the call should be challenged.

It was no surprise last week when Los Angeles County Inspector General Max Huntsman recommended against renewing contracts with two agencies monitoring the Sheriff's Department. The same citizens commission that called for the creation of Huntsman's office also suggested that it absorb the functions of those other agencies, one of them established 22 years ago to report on excessive force and lax discipline, the other created nine years later to monitor the sheriff's handling of deputy misconduct allegations.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick said he will have to be more cognizant of his glove-to-hand transfer on double plays this season after umpires overturned a call involving infielder Andrew Romine in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Seattle Mariners. With the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning, Romine, playing second base, dropped the ball while trying to turn a double play. The play was initially ruled a force out, but the call was overturned after an instant-replay review, the umpires determining Romine did not have possession of the ball.

TEMPE, Ariz. - The new instant-replay and home-plate collision rules were the primary topics of the Angels' annual spring-training Players' Assn. meeting Sunday morning. There has been some confusion about the rules and how they've been implemented in exhibition games, and new union chief Tony Clark acknowledged a growing concern among players about whether the rules will enhance or detract from the game. Then, a few hours later, a fifth-inning play in the Angels' 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds did nothing to ease the debate.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Another day, another lengthy postgame meeting between Angels Manager Mike Scioscia and the umpires. The topic: once again, instant replay. The discussion Tuesday was sparked by an eighth-inning call that was overturned, the first of numerous spring-training challenges involving the Angels that was changed. With the bases loaded and one out, Angels second baseman Andrew Romine dropped the ball while making the glove-to-hand transfer on a double-play attempt. The play was initially ruled a force out. Seattle Manager Lloyd McClendon challenged, and after a 2-minute, 20-second review, umpires determined Romine did not have possession of the ball.
