Peter is so good every week on "Mike & Mike".

Saddest thing is, think about how many of our beloved sports icons, both players and non, who are getting up in age. Dick Vitale, Marv Albert, Chris Berman, Joe Namath, etc...Lots of sadness in the coming years, hopefully later rather than sooner.

There was some talk of Peter being the next commish of baseball but I guess if it wasn't nixed, his family wouldn't want him taking on such a stressful job, though it's probably not as stressful mentally or physically as being a sportswriter travelling all the time.

Peter for Commish.....
I think it would be great do to his emmence knowledge and contacts, however, he is quite the BoSox fan. How fairly he could commish would have to be seen.

Although it has to be better than an OWNER for commish, that was the worst thing possible, I feel bad for the player, when you get suspended there is no way to appeal although they do anyway.
If the same person that gives the suspension is the one that arbitrates an appeal, WHATS the POINT :confused:

Get well soon

ps, I'd rather have Peter back doing what he's doing than being a commish.

How about Bob Costas for commish, at least he's not an owner.

We hadan open BoSox fan as commissioner before. Fay Vincent.

In the end I think that anyone who follows the sport is a fan of one or more teams. the issue is can they be impartial in spite of that. I suspect that Gammons could. But right now I just wish him a complete recovery.

What would be the worst thing that could happen if a very biased-to-one-team guy became commish, honestly?

Couldn't be any worse than Selig...
