Consensus growing for Dave Dombrowski to replace Bud Selig as MLB commissioner

USA TODAY Sports

Buster Olney of ESPN reports Dave Dombrowski's name is being being heard more and more as a replacement for retiring baseball commissioner Bud Selig.

The rumblings are growing amongst baseball insiders in regard to the next commissioner of Major League Baseball. The name of the baseball executive who is coming to the forefront will put a chill down the spine of Tigers fans.

Buster Olney of ESPN:

As much as I'd like to dismiss the Dombrowski rumors as just that, Olney's report makes a great deal of sense. The Detroit Tigers' President and General Manager has been considered one of the top commissioner candidates ever since the 79-year-old Selig formally announced he was stepping down after the 2014 season this past September. Selig's last day in the position will be January 24, 2015.

Other executives whose names have been floated as possible replacements for Selig include Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, MLB Executive Vice President Tim Brosnan, MLB Executive Vice President Rob Manfred and Atlanta Braves CEO Terry McGuirk.

But it's Dombrowski's name which often comes up at the top of the list. The push for Dombrowski as commissioner appears to be gaining a great deal of momentum with no signs of slowing down.
