Manfred Gets Five-Year Term As Commissioner 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Nov 20, 2014 7:40 pm

Rob Manfred has been given a five-year term as baseball commissioner.

He will succeed Bud Selig in two months.

Baseball owners voted the term Thursday at their first meeting since electing Manfred in August.

Selig said Manfred's term was approved "unanimously, quietly and quickly," and the transition of power to baseball's longtime executive has been orderly.
