Baseball owners indicated last week that Bud Selig is ready to accept their longstanding request that he take the job full time. You were expecting Judge Landis? No independent thinker would take this declawed position. On the other hand, Selig has created unity among owners, and he has a passion for the game. Once he puts his share of the Brewers in trust and gets a decent haircut, he'll be all set.
Let's see, the two major moments during Selig's 6�-year tenure as "acting" commissioner were an eight-month strike and owner Wayne Huizenga's fire-sale dispersal of talent after his Florida Marlins won the '97 World Series. Those are two of the darkest moments in the history of the game. Now Selig is going to be the commissioner full time? Elmer Fudd would have been a better choice.
