BALTIMORE -- Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is looking forward to writing a book, teaching history and taking it easy when he retires this winter. Jari Kurri Jersey . Before that happens, however, he hopes to introduce his successor -- perhaps as soon as Thursday. Baseballs 30 owners will meet in Baltimore this week to vote on Seligs replacement. A seven-man committee whittled down an expansive list to three candidates: MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred; Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and Tim Brosnan, MLB Executive Vice-President of Business. "The process has worked just the way I thought it would," Selig said Tuesday at the Orioles home ballpark. "I gave them a great list of names, and these names were on it." To win Thursdays vote, a candidate must receive approval from 23 owners. "A lot of other people are making predictions," Selig said. "Im staying out of that business because I dont know." Asked what would happen if there is an impasse, Selig replied, "This seven-man committee has done really good work. Well see what happens." This is what wont happen: Selig changing his mind and sticking around. "I thought long and hard before I made my announcement in October of last year," he said of the announcement actually made Sept. 26. "I just celebrated my 80th birthday. In life, theres a time to come but theres also a time to go. Im looking forward to that. I have a lot of things planned." Those plans include writing an autobiography, teaching at two or three universities and "maybe a little peace and quiet." "Its time for baseball to move on and its time for me to move on," he said. "If anybody would have told me back in September of 1992 Id be here 22 1/2, 23 years, that would have not been conceivable. So, Im done." Before he leaves, Selig hopes to see the feud between the Orioles and Washington Nationals TV rights resolved. The Orioles own MASN, which televises Nationals games as a result of an agreement when the team moved from Montreal. The Nationals want higher annual broadcast rights payments from MASN, and the network isnt willing to fork it over. "MASN is an inner-club dispute," Selig said. "Its an important goal before I step down. Weve tried very hard, and well continue to try. Were doing everything we can." As far as Thursdays vote goes, Selig has only one priority. "The only goal Ive really had all along is, when its all over that people can say, Well, it was really fair," Selig said. He was delighted to see that, even though the sport doesnt have a salary cap, small-market teams such as Kansas City, Oakland and Tampa Bay have flourished. "The things we set out to do in the 90s, that was the objective," Selig said. "I always have regarded my job to be to provide hope and faith in as many places as possible. And weve done that. Baseball is better off as a result of it." Milan Lucic Jersey .D. Martinezs ninth-inning sacrifice fly scored Torii Hunter with the winning run and the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 Sunday. Nail Yakupov Jersey .com) - The 12th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes continue a four-game homestand at Value City Arena on Wednesday night when they face off against the High Point Panthers in a non-conference matchup.Carmelo Anthony had previously said he planned to opt out of his contract with the New York Knicks and reportedly will do just that on Monday. Anthony has a June 23 deadline to make that decision and Yahoo Sports cited a source in a report Sunday that said the seven-time All-Star will notify the Knicks of his intention to exercise that right and become a free agent. The 30-year-old veteran, in past comments, said he wouldnt rule out a return to the Knicks, adding that he just wanted to test the market. Teams reportedly interested in Anthony include the Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets. The Knicks, however, can offer Anthony the most money and longest contract. New Knicks presiddent Phil Jackson, however, has indicated that he would like Anthony to take less money in an effort to rebuild a team that missed the playoffs in 2013-14. Connor McDavid Jersey.
