Sox Have 2 Reps On MLB's 'Pace Of Play' Cmte.

Outgoing MLB Commissioner Bud Selig appointed a new committee to produce recommendations that will improve the pace of the game. The Red Sox will have two people on the committee: team Chairman Tom Werner and general partner Michael Gordon. As you might recall, Werner made "pace" the centerpiece of his failed campaign to become Commissioner. Said Selig of the committee, "With the cooperation of all appropriate parties, we can make progress on improving the pace of play, and we will have recommendations in the very near future for the 2015 season. I believe that this group has the experience and the perspective to be mindful of our game's traditions while being creative about our approach in the future." Perhaps the most surprising part of this story is that Selig has already convened a conference call with committee members. Honestly, did you think Bud could work the phone buttons?
