Bud Selig is Rich

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

In 2005, Commissioner Bud was paid almost fifteen million bucks.  No wonder he shed that "interim" tag.  

I suppose this would be the appropriate time to take potshots at Selig; as a Brewers fan, he's hardly my favorite man in baseball.  But given how baseball has grown in the last few years (I'm speaking economically here), he may just deserve that much.  

If nothing else, I'd say Selig does at least 50% more for the game of baseball than Jeff Suppan does, and way more than twice as much as Jason Marquis.  (Sorry: if I'm going to skip the Selig potshot, I have to take a swipe at somebody.  Marquis is always at the ready for situations like this.)
