Bud Selig Makes How Much?
I never thought how much Bud Selig, the Commissioner of Baseball makes, but according to the business of baseball blog he made 14.5 million dollars last year (link). That was the salary earned by Vlad Guerrero, Lance Berkman, and JD Drew. That salary was topped by only 13 players (including 5 Yankees). He’s getting a 4% raise this year and will make over 15 million next year too.
So next time you feel like booing Alex Rodriguez for his 25 million dollar contract, make sure to boo Bud Selig too. Actually I don't boo anyone for high salaries, I boo A-rod, because he is a Yankee and Bud Selig for black out restrictions, the 1994 strike and I heard he puts ketchup on his brat.
