  • Commissioner Landis

    I've been debating the effectiveness of Landis as Commissioner. What are some opinions out there? I think people often assign 2005 values and cultural standards to a figure who lived 70 years ago. He was racist, and ruled with an iron hand, but was he as good a Commissioner as MLB could have expected at the time?
