Colorado owner Jerry McMorris' statement that Bud Selig has done an outstanding job as commissioner of baseball is a joke [Dec. 20]. Baseball cannot afford to have a small-market owner as commissioner. Especially one with as bad a track record as Bud Selig. He has presided over the longest labor strike in sports history and the cancellation of the 1994 World Series. Per-game attendance and TV ratings have declined since his first year as "interim" commissioner. Baseball needs a strong executive who can get the owners and the players' union working for the good of baseball instead of the constant fighting over every issue.

Satellite trucks piled up on the road in front. Cameras blocked a hotel corridor where traffic at times was as heavy as the airport next door. Curious onlookers dropped their luggage and stopped to gawk. There's Selig. There's Reinsdorf. Isn't that MacPhail? That's Angelos, the guy who refused to use replacements. Hello, Marge. Where's George? Baseball owners, powerful, influential and wealthy men and women, huddled in the same ballroom Sunday, but they didn't even vote on a lockout.
