The Next Commish?

ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick runs down the candidates to succeed Bud Selig when (if?) he steps down as scheduled in the 2009. The top contender is Andy MacPhail, despite his failure in a decade running the Cubs, while others mentioned include Bob Dupuy, Steve Greenberg, and even President Bush.

But third on the list should surprise Phillies fans- Dave Montgomery. The team's main owner is despised by the team's backers as a cheapskate- no matter how many long-term contracts he hands out. But hey- a promotion would be mean he's no longer running the Phils.
