Will Baseball Get Better After Selig's Departure?

Bud SeligBud Seligs failures have been exceedingly high-profile and photo-worthy. He came onto the scene in what was more or less coup against then-Commissioner Fay Vincent and quickly found himself embroiled in labor strife which led to the 1994-95 strike.

Later he presided over moves which rankled the purists: interleague play. Realignment. All manner of shenanigans with the All-Star Game.

Most notable among his mistakes in the game and they remain mistakes no matter how much he attempts to wish them away via his pleading of ignorance is the explosion of performance-enhancing drug use during his tenure.
