Selig’s Contract Approved

A couple days ago, I mentioned that the MLB owners would be gathering in Phoenix this week, and that one of their points of discussion would be to extend Bud Selig’s tenure as MLB Commissioner.

Well, its already happened. A two year deal was approved on Wednesday by MLB’s executive council, which I assume is run in a similar manner to a Jedi High Council.

As I touched on at the time of originally writing about this possibility, fans can dislike Bud Selig all they want, but they can’t criticize him for any occupational failings. It seems difficult for some of us to realize that his job is to make money for baseball franchise owners not better entertainment for fans. By this definition, he’s done an incredible job.
