MLB COMMISSIONER: NOW IS THE WINTER OF THEIR DISCONTENT?

          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).
