All it would take is a 5th umpire in the booth to do replays. He would buzz down to the crew chief when he was reviewing a play and let them know if overturned or not. With the quick technology today most plays could be reviewed and determined in about a minute. Most times an argument from the manager takes longer than that unless you are Dusty Baker and never go out to argue a call anymore. Just boggles my mind that MLB won't do that. NFL and NBA use replay about as much as they can. No reason MLB can't.
I'm not saying it can't or shouldn't happen...I just don't think it will, especially in the way you're describing it. I think, if they expand it at all, it will remain the same way it is now, argue, gather, discuss, hide under bleachers, discuss some more, emerge and announce. Too dang slow.
