Bud Selig

Age: 73
Title: Commissioner, Major League Baseball

PRO: Steroids? No problem. Bud-dy ball just keeps on rolling, with strong attendance and ratings. Plus, his support for revenue sharing is finally paying off in places like Tampa and Minnesota.

CON: Despite revenue sharing and luxury taxes, small markets still need impeccable management — and a lot of breaks — to compete. Ticket prices at new stadiums also need to be addressed. A cost of $2,500 a seat for the front row at Yankee Stadium? Ruth and Gehrig better be playing.
