He's just want the owners want: someone who will keep labor strife; someone who will blame the players for the salaries being out of control, when in fact, they're at fault.
As for contraction, Minnesota is being blackmailed by baseball into building a new ballpark for the Twins-at taxkpayers expense. I think Selig is in trouble over this issue, especially since he got a huge loan from Twins' owner Carl Pohlad, a few years back.
I agree with you KROC, there will never be "normalcy" in baseball until this clown goes. Sadly, the owners love him, so that may not be any time soon.
