This.

If we could get someone the quality of Roger Goodell it would make my day. The dude is awesome. He cares about the health of the league first, unlike Bettman who's an "owners commissioner".

Definitely, 100% too good to be true.

Not a fan of the way he has managed the NHL, but he did at least get the league a salary cap. If he could do the same for baseball I think it'd really improve the sport.

As great as that would be, I don't see it happening. There actually is a fair amount of parity in MLB right now given that there is no cap, looking strictly at champions over the last decade.

Plus baseball players are princesses.

Would love to be rid of bettman but I do not put the odds at even 1 in 10 that he is baseball commissioner. He is a clown and hockey has rebounded somehwat DESPITE him, not because of him.

MLB Commish? Can not see it.

Kasten is probably going to take it, no dice for the NHL.

Sorry Stan Kasten:

Bob said that he had heard from 2 reliable sources that Stan Kasten would be the next commissioner of MLB.

My ideal commissioner? Give it a couple years and I'd support Cam Neely. He's had experience as a player, he's getting experience in the front office, and his experience in office leadership hasn't been as disastrously bad or personality driven as Gretzky's was -- Cam is easily humbler than Gretzky, which is a prime requirement of a guy whose ultimate job is to mediate the needs of players and ownership. Once he gets some real front office experience under his belt you could do a whole lot worse.

A commissioners biggest role is collective bargaining so I doubt a former player without a degree or managerial experience would be fit for commissioner. Bettman (lawyer), Stern (lawyer), Tagliabue (lawyer).

My guesses:

Bill Daly
Brian Burke (my pick)
