Bud Selig is down to his last handful of days as commissioner of baseball. Selig took over baseball as chairman of the executive council in 1992, following Fay Vincent’s resignation. Though he insisted that he would never take the job permanently, Selig was elected commissioner in 1998 and will have been in charge of baseball for the second-longest term in baseball history. Only Kenesaw Mountain Landis, who held the job from 1920 to 1944, was commissioner longer. On Sunday, January 25, Rob Manfred will take over as the new commissioner of baseball, thus ending Selig’s long run.

Keith nails it. Bud Selig made a mess of things.
Indeed. Good riddance.
Well it’s about time!
22 years is long time…. They ought to put term limits on the commissioner position.
I totally agree!
I think unveiling your OWN statue says it all…what a scumbag.

The financial status of corporations seems to be guarded under lock and key and anyway, the details tend to be very complicated; at least for me so I have no way of knowing success or failure when it comes to Mr. Selig’s tenure as commissioner, but I do miss a World Series with two teams that have never played against each other.
