Best Bud: Columnists Praise Selig For MLB's Growth, Labor Peace
Published May 2, 2011
BUD, NICE: SI's Joe Posnanski also profiles Selig and writes, "Nobody has changed a sport more than he has changed baseball the last 20 years." It seems that people "never credit Selig enough for his backroom ability to twist arms, push his agenda and simply do whatever he thinks he should do." Selig said, "Yes, I know what people say about me. I try not to be sensitive about it, but I am human. I know people say that I'm indecisive or that I move slowly. But I learned a long time ago, that doesn't matter. Getting things done is what matters. You have to know how to get things done" (SI, 5/2 issue).
