MLB At A Crossroads, Day 79: Monitoring The Beeston Beat
Published January 23, 2002
With MLB COO Paul Beeston telling the Toronto Star that he is leaving at an "unspecified date," the WASHINGTON POST's Dave Sheinin reports Beeston's departure is "not tied to the state of negotiations with the union, and Beeston has indicated to associates that he intends to remain with MLB until a [CBA] is reached." Beeston's departure "would remove the man the union considers its most sympathetic ear," but union officials have said that they "always believed baseball's ultimate authority rested with" MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and the owners (WASHINGTON POST, 1/23).
