    Players get a victory lap, so he wants one, too. Hopefully, it doesn't involve a series of on-field ceremonies. I can't imagine there's going to be any market where the team presents him with parting gifts in a ceremony on the field and he isn't greeted with a shower of boos.

    It will sell tickets, I suppose. People will buy tickets to that game just for the opportunity to be a boo-bird.

    No, just no on Costas.

    Nobody's mentioned George Will. How about Doris Kearns Goodwin as the first female commissioner?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Im fine with Will but I doubt he would take it.

    Goodwin would mandate the Red Sox start every game with a 5 run lead

    George is 72 and Doris is 70. If that's the age bracket MLB is looking in, the owners should just hire David Stern as soon as he hangs it up at the end of this NBA season. Stern's record of accomplishment is similar to Bud's.

    And to the comment above (not oneupper) who thought that WGN made more Cubs fan than TBS made Braves fans, I'd take that bet.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I love Costas, but the idea that a longtime fan - albeit a very articulate one - is somehow qualified for the job is crazy.

    People forget what the commissioner is. He's basically the employee of 30 major league owners. They can fire him anytime they want. The art of being a good commissioner is protecting and marketing the game as effectively as possible while still keeping your job. It's very political. Ask Fay Vincent.

    In all probability, I think they'll most likely choose another one of themselves to be commish. No one is more prepared to act in the owners interest than another owner.
