A majority of sports execs would grade MLB Commissioner Bud Selig’s work over the last 20 years as a “B,” according to a Turnkey Sports Poll conducted in February. Fifty-two percent of execs polled said they would give a grade of “B,” while 21% said “C” and 15% said “A.” Meanwhile, execs also were asked to identify Selig's most-lasting legacy. Twenty-nine percent said having labor peace since ’94, while 22% said the introduction of the Wild Card format and 20% said the introduction of in-season interleague play. Execs also said that PED use/testing would be the biggest issue facing the next MLB commissioner (Turnkey).What grade does Bud Selig get for his work
