MLB Commissioner '100 Percent' Retiring in 2015

Jayson Stark, reporting for

On the eve of baseball's quarterly owners meetings and as he begins what he says will be his final year in office, Selig was adamant that, despite previous instances where he said he'd retire but stayed on, this time there is no turning back. "It's 100 percent," said Selig, who will turn 80 in July. "This is definitely it. I'm more comfortable today than I was when I [announced] it in October, if that's possible. Jan. 24, 2015, is it. And I'm very comfortable with that. I'm done." Good fucking riddance --- it only took him 23 years to bastardize the sport I love most.
