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.Posted by Stephen Silver at January 21, 2007 08:45 PM
