The Next "Commish" (Manfred elected)


Recommended Posts

Safe money is on Manfred.

Major League Baseball has identified three finalists to replace Commissioner Bud Selig and will vote on the successor Aug. 14, a high-ranking MLB executive with direct knowledge of the hiring process told USA TODAY Sports.

The owners, according to the executive, will choose between Rob Manfred, MLB's chief operating officer; Tim Brosnan, MLB's executive vice president of business; and Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner.

So if you were MLB Commish for a day.

What would be the first item on your list?

Mine would be: Install the DH in the NL, or remove it from the AL, both leagues will play by the same rules.

Not sure if I agree that they need to be playing the same rules, but assuming they do, which one happens? Probably tough to decide.

The players will never give up the DH.

I agree with you, the players like the DH.

The point is, two rules is stupid.

Did the AFL have the 2 point conversion and the NFL just the 1 point conversion?

Does part of the NBA have the 3 point shot and the other doesn't?

Does the NHL have penalty shots after the first overtime for half their league?
