Manfred to Succeed Selig as MLB’s New Commish in 2015
by

As widely expected, the MLB owners have picked Rob Manfred to succeed Bud Selig as Major League Baseball’s next Commissioner. Manfred will become the tenth man to hold this office which he will assume on January 25, 2015. 

Manfred decisively defeated Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner. Tim Brosnan, MLB’s Executive Vice-President of Business, withdrew from the race today prior to the vote. Last year, Selig appointed Manfred to be MLB’s Chief Operating Officer. 

I’m not surprised the woners went with Manfred, but I don’t think they’ll put up with him for 20 years.

When Selig announced his retirement, I wrote this piece with my suggestions as to who should be his successor. Needless to say, the owners did not take me up on them.
