Bud Selig is likely to remain as commissioner beyond his current contract, which was set to expire at year's end. ESPN reported he will receive an extension of at least two years at the baseball owners meeting in Phoenix next week, and there clearly is a movement on the part of ownership people to make that happen.

Selig had been maintaining publicly that he'd step down after the year as planned,, but the people closest to him all along said it's no different than in the past, that Selig loves his job too much to leave. Selig is also seen as the best person to deal with the major issues of the day, including the TV contract, the Mets, stadium issues and other items on the horizon. Selig's great strength is pulling together 30 disparate successful people with varying agendas to form a consensus.
