Quote of the Day: Rob Manfred and Jerry Reinsdorf’s “f*****g cigars”

ESPN’s T.J. Quinn:

Quinn offered this after reading Ken Rosenthal’s interview with Manfred in which it was revealed that Manfred’s management style is different than Selig’s inasmuch as Manfred does not do, to use Quinn’s phrase, “one-on-one politicking.”

Given how prickly, petty and arrogant a lot of baseball owners happen to be — and given that Manfred does not have the in that Selig had with them as a former owner himself — one wonders if he’s going to have trouble building consensus like Selig did without smoking their “f*****g cigars.”
