—Joe Torre, MLB's executive vice president for baseball operations, said the league still is looking into expanded use of instant replay.
"Whether we do something for next season or not, I think by the time we start next season I'm confident we'll have a plan," he said.
—There was no update on the situation in Northern California, where Oakland wants to build a ballpark in San Jose — an area that is part of the San Francisco Giants' territory.
"I know people say 'Gee, it should be easy to do,'" Selig said. "Well, the more they've gotten into it, the more complicated it's gotten. But we're headed for resolution."
—Selig is planning to travel to next month's winter meetings to speak to team doctors and trainers about drug testing, and he reiterated his support for baseball's drug program and its penalties.
