HBPs will be among the plays that can be reviewed by instant replay under the new rules for 2014, so now I guess we have to argue about whether they’ll just review whether or not the ball actually hit the player, or whether they’ll get into reviewing a player’s attempt to avoid being hit.

This opens up a whole new category of reviewed HBPs and overturned HBPs.
