PHOENIX -- Baseball commissioner Bud Selig, a staunch opponent of instant replay, is willing to let major league general managers examine whether it should be used.

"I don't like instant replay because I don't like all the delays. I think it sometimes creates as many problems or more than it solves," Selig said Friday night during Game 2 of the NL Championship Series. "But I am willing to say we'll at least talk about these if people want to talk about it. I'm going to let the general managers discuss it, let them come back and make recommendations. No, I'm not a big advocate of instant replay."

and he is concerned about ratings

Selig was concerned about poor ratings. Colorado's Game 1 win Thursday was easily the least-watched LCS prime-time game ever, and Game 2 didn't start until 10:19 EDT.
