Nightengale: Greenberg could follow Selig - but will he?

While Major League Baseball searches for the next commissioner to replace Bud Selig, several high-ranking industry executives believe they have found the right man for the job.

The trouble is convincing Steve Greenberg, 65, managing director of investment bank Allen & Company, to do it.

Greenberg, former MLB deputy commissioner and son of Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg, loves the sport.

Just not the Commissioner’s job.

In addition to the increased workload, I guess he doesn’t want to take a pay cut to the 1% from .001%.
