, discussing 2009 via mlb.com. Craig Calcaterra
at NBCsports.com has a great response: "When Selig talks about success, competitive balance is not anything he's particularly interested in. Yes, he gives it lip service ... but the fact is that his greatest success as Commissioner has been overall revenue growth." Both of them worth reads, if for infuriating reasons.
