He’s on deck. Rob Manfred has been elected Major League Baseball’s new commissioner and is set to take over from 22-year vet Bud Selig in January. Some complained that Manfred’s initial pronouncement, which noted that he has “very big shoes to fill,” failed to outline his vision. But most pundits and baseball lovers hailed his selection as a potential home run. They think Manfred can keep players satisfied, on the field and out of the strike zone.
