Selig: No 'significant changes' on plays at plate

SECAUCUS, N.J. -- In the two weeks since Buster Posey was hurt, Giants manager Bruce Bochy and others have made strong calls for rules changes on plays at the plate.

Monday night, commissioner Bud Selig said he doesn't expect the rules to be changed.

"We're glad to talk, glad to revisit," Selig said between picks of baseball's draft. "But I don't see any significant changes."

Selig said he has spoken about the play many times with Joe Torre, his new executive vice president. He said he understands the concerns the Giants have, and he praised the Giants for the statement they issued in response to general manager Brian Sabean's inflammatory comments last week.

"I appreciate the concern," Selig said. "I'm saddened by Buster Posey [getting hurt], or by anyone else."

Selig, who has pushed a (sometimes ignored) unofficial slotting system for draft-pick bonuses, said again Monday that he wants a hard-slotting system in the new Basic Agreement being negotiated this summer.

Asked if he's confident that baseball can get the players' union to agree to a hard-slotting system, the commissioner responded: "I'm confident that we need it."

Selig also called again for a worldwide draft.

Selig played down last week's Los Angeles Times report that nine teams are out of compliance with MLB's debt-service rules, saying it was not a concern because most of those teams were close to being in compliance.
