"I'm not pleasantly surprised when something happens, not discouraged when something doesn't," Hurdle said, alluding to the vagaries of replay review. "It's a work in progress -- they continually say that.
"The hundreds of reviewed plays, we have it all broken down, and I've watched every review that has taken place this year. I am just trying to make sense of it. I'm trying to be where I need to be to make the best decision I can make and not be influenced by anything I see."
Bottom-line, the Pirates skipper gave the evolving process a strong thumbs-up.
"It has enhanced the game in a lot of different areas," Hurdle said. "The right calls are being made at the right time more so than ever before."
