From the miracles-do- happen department: Major League Baseball will not expand the use of its instant-replay system this season. The bosses - who had looked forward to reviewing trapped balls, fair-or-foul rulings, and fan interference - now hope to do so in 2013. This season will be the same as last season: Replay will remain an option only on disputed home run calls. According to the Associated Press, which cited sources familiar with the situation, there were at least two roadblocks to expanding replay reviews: umpires and players.

There was no word from George Steinbrenner about Joe Torre's job status after the Yankees' latest loss, 7-4, to the Boston Red Sox yesterday at Yankee Stadium, completed a 9-14 April. Yankees captain Derek Jeter defended his manager. "It's unfair," Jeter said. "There's no way he's responsible for us performing. He's not hitting for us. He's not pitching for us. He puts the best players out there on the field. We're just not doing the job. That's the bottom line. " Home runs by David Ortiz, Alex Cora and Manny Ramirez gave the Red Sox a 5-1 record against New York this season, and a 6 1/2-game lead in the standings.
