Vincent: undefeated Bud Selig is ‘the Rocky Marciano of baseball politics’

Vincent on sports radio:

“I think he’s the Rocky Marciano of baseball politics. He’s undefeated.
....
Just imagine, guys, if Manfred and Bud left on a given day, would baseball be comfortable with Jerry Reinsdorf, whose record in this area is pretty poor? Collusion was a $280 million mistake. And Jerry was right in the middle of that.”

Top pick for next MLB commissioner rejects job offer

Bud Selig begrudgingly accepts staying on the job another 15 years.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is set to step down from the position next January, and he already has a candidate in mind for who could replace him.

The thing is, he doesn’t want the job.

Steve Greenberg, a former MLB deputy commissioner and son of Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg, is appreciative of the offer but doesn’t plan on taking it. Selig, who turns 80 later this month, has been baseball’s commissioner since 1998.

  “Early on, I told Bud I was not going to be a candidate,” Greenberg said to USA Today. “I’m sticking to that. I’m comfortable with that. I gave it a try in the early 90s, and I’m not at a place in my life where it makes sense to me. I know what’s involved. It’s a 24/7, 365-day schedule that the commissioner has to keep to do it right. The three years I spent in the commissioner’s office was exhausting.”
