MLB Issues Selig Must Fix Before Retiring

Commissioner SeligMLB Commissioner Bud Selig confirmed on Thursday that he’ll retire January 2015. That leaves barely 15 months for him to resolve a handful of big issues across the sport.

1. He’s been adamant about using the clash to determine home-field advantage in the World Series ever since the 2002 ASG ended in a tie. What sense does that make when players on non-contenders participate?

2. Selig and his staff must hold umps accountable for their outbursts and clearly define what the acceptable conduct is for major leaguers.

3. More Thorough Drug Tests: the way to make players respect that system is by consulting professionals who know what’s going on in the performance-enhancing industry.
