COMMISSIONER FOOTinMOUTH

RON MANFRED INHABITS the office of commissioner of baseball. He runs baseball perhaps not with the dictatorial sense of Goodall but he has the capacity and frankly the responsibility to promote the game and the players who play it.

How much trouble would it be for Baseball to promote Mike Trout – its best player and an all around good guy? Apparently its too much trouble for Commissioner Manfred who demurred to Trout, suggesting Trout should promote himself. Wait… wut?

That’s like PGA deciding in the 2000’s it doesn’t need to promote or highlight Tiger Woods because, hey “he’ll do that himself”. No – the PGA rode that pony until Tiger wrapped his car around a tree. Even then it helped Tiger rehab his image.

Major League Baseball is not served well by a man who won’t promote its best player. After all what is his job other than to collect a huge salary, enforce rules and promote the game?
