In Defense of the World Baseball Classic

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

Bud Selig has been a very controversial baseball commissioner. He more or less encouraged steroid use for years, allowing it to become a major problem, before seeking, ineffectively, to address the problem for the last several years. He created the new system of three divisions and the wild card, now wild cards, which have been a mixed bag for baseball. He also presided over a gratuitous offensive boom for about a decade beginning around 1994 which lead to a bloated and less enjoyable style of play.
