According to the Iron Economist…“Selig, number one. Landis, number two. Eckert…ptooey!”
Bud loves baseball as much as anyone I’ve ever met. . . . Bud is also tenacious. Without his tenacity, Milwaukee would never have gotten back a major league team. And without his tenacity, the owners may have self-destructed in the early 1990s as they bitterly fought over revenue sharing. At the time, and still today, Bud spends many of his waking hours talking to the owners about how they need to cooperate with each other and behave as partners. He has the uncanny ability to make just about everyone he talks to believe that he is on their side. Baseball’s ownership always has been plagued by fractiousness. Bud has used his superlative social skills, intelligence and energy to hold baseball’s barons together. The owners recognize that Bud has performed this vital function, and even though some may resent occasionally his methods or the outcome, they are afraid of what would happen without him.
