MLB  > General MLB  > Who is your candidate to replace Bud Selig?
October 8, 2013, 05:27 PM
ARCHIE: There are several names being bantered about for Selig???s heir to the chair. I think maybe Fay Vincent had it right many years ago when he thought Steve Greenberg would have been the better selection over Selig. He???s been a life-long baseball man. He has worked to broker a long list of club sales. And while the league has dramatically changed since he had the title, being deputy commissioner of the league previously doesn???t hurt his chances at the big chair.

STEPHAN: Well I don???t think Pete Rose is a candidate, so I will eliminate him right off the bat. My pick, while a million to one long shot would be Former President George W Bush. He has leadership experience, baseball experience as he owned the Rangers, and has a solid knowledge and love for the game of baseball.

JOSEPH: Haven???t given it much thought and I don???t know if I really care that much as long as the guy replacing Bud does nothing to hurt the game. I will say that I know little to nothing about most of the names that I have heard bandied about.

JIM: I don???t know who it is, but I dang sure know who it cannot be. It cannot be another team owner. Bud Selig, regardless of any of his success, will always be remembered as the guy that moved his team into the National League to get away from the Red Sox and Yankees.

That being said, I think Tim Brosnan is the best choice. Currently the head of MLB???s operations, he is a perfect fit for the position. He???s worked hard, is very good at his job, and deserves the job.

If not him, that I throw my vote to former President of the United States George W. Bush. He has baseball experience, loves the game, and would be a fantastic ambassador for the sport.
