MLB COMMISSIONER: NOW IS THE WINTER OF THEIR DISCONTENT?
Published January 12, 1998
In his Sunday BOSTON GLOBE column, Peter Gammons reported that the "rumblings among [MLB] owners is that there may be two commissioner candidates presented at the Executive Council meeting this week, but while the sentiment in the NL may be strongly against Bud Selig taking the job full-time, there is little chance that either candidate will be accepted and so one way or another Selig will be asked to remain in power" (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/11). One NL Owner is quoted in Gammons' ESPN SportsZone column as saying, "It's not that we don't like Bud; we like and respect him. But we need a fresh voice. We need to break away from the clique that's run the game for so long, the old Cold War warriors. But now the executive council will get names from [Search Committee Chair] Jerry McMorris, no one will agree on one and Bud will survive" (ESPN SportsZone, 1/10).
