The announcement that, former Major League Baseball MVP and New York Yankee Manager, Joe Torre is to be named Executive Vice President of Major League Baseball Operations is a smart move by Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig.

Joe Torre is well respected throughout the game of Baseball. Fellow Managers, Players, Baseball Fans, Sportswriters and especially Bud Selig need to have a person of Torre's stature to stay involved in the "Game."

Bud Seig is 76 years old and is ready to retire from his current position as Baseball Commisssioner. It certainly seems plausible that Joe Torre would be an excellent choice to replace Selig as Baseball Commissioner. 

The only downside is that Joe Torre is 70 years old. Well 70 is not that old. Joe Torre could be Baseball Commissioner for five or six years to guide the game of Baseball through the next round of Labor Negotiations.

The only other choice for the next Baseball Commissioner would be Frank Robinson. The only knock on Robinson, 75 years old,  is that he is nearly as old as Bud Selig.

The game of Baseball will need to deal with the escalating salaries of Major League Players. It will be interesting to see what happens with the Albert Pujols contract. The other Major League Baseball Players and their Union Rep's know that what happens with Albert Pujols' contract will have a significant impact on the salary of every other Major Leaguer!
