With Richard Justice crowning Bud Selig the best commissioner ever, I figured it would be a good time to poll the LSB faithful to see if they agree. Feel free to throw in any comments on any of the commissioners.
Is it Landis, who kept African Americans out of baseball, or Eckert, who had not been to a live game in the 10 years before being commissioner, or Ueberroth who spearheaded collusion? Lots of great choices!
