For Selig, that is. Despite the fact that his defense is worse than Adam Dunn’s.
Not that I’m going to be critical. Selig can be something of a buffoon who tends to bungle the high-profile stuff, but he has also presided over a very bountiful few years for Major League Baseball. It’s quick and easy to compare his salary to Derek Jeter or Joe the schoolteacher’s and act all outraged, but Bud is in the entertainment business. In light of that it would make much more sense to compare him to Robert Iger or the head of some other entertainment company. My guess is that his salary seems pretty reasonable against that backdrop.
