A reader suggested this would make a good topic to generate discussion. Let’s find out.

If you were the commissioner of baseball for one day, what would be your first order of business?

Let’s not make this too complicated. Give us just one thing you would do. It can be a rule change or some other decision that would benefit the game. Let’s pretend for a second you have the cooperation of the owners and the MLBPA.

Here’s mine: I’d change the draft. Instead of just the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, the draft would encompass the world. There also would be a mandated salary slot system to control the costs, much like the NBA draft.

What would you do?
