Perhaps many will disagree with me but --
IMO - Bud Selig brings dishonor to the game. Lately his motive seems to be to make it harder for the Yankees. He shows a conflict of interest by being the commissioner and owning the team that his daughter (wink, wink) runs. Whenever he gets a chance he complains about the game and the system he helped to create. He allows the owners to expand by adding teams (the players have no say in this) and then demands contraction. He has shady loan deals with other owners. We need a real commissioner who will not destroy the game and the capitalist system with a salary cap. We need a salary basement – this would stop owners who simply want to sit on their butt, collect revenue sharing and luxury tax from the hard-working Yankees, and not improve their team. That is welfare. The last two series prove that a small market team, if run well, can win. And now Selig is heavily involved in brokering the A_ROD deal - why would the commish get involved?.
The sooner we get a real, impartial commissioner, the better off baseball will be.
