Former NBA Player To Take Place Of MLB Commissioner
I say its a pipe dream because, as Shaikin seems to agree, baseball owners are not the sort to go for outsiders. Which is partially what made Selig so successful. Hes always had support from the owners, partially because hes a good politician and consensus builder, but also because he was given the slack to perfect that approach given that he was one of the owners and everyone knew him.
Still: an interesting thought experiment as we approach the Post-Selig Era. And, on its own merits, a good look at Kevin Johnson and all hes been able to accomplish in Sacramento.
