Baseball is already great, in our opinion, but that didn’t stop commissioner Rob Manfred from attending an important meeting Tuesday. Manfred met with president-elect Donald Trump to discuss … well, no one is exactly sure.
The meeting, which was also attended by New York Yankees president Randy Levine, came as a surprise to the baseball world. No one was sure what the three men would discuss, or whether it would impact baseball.
“I had a really nice meeting with the President-elect. He explained to me his history with the game and what a great baseball fan he is, and we are glad that we had an opportunity to get together before his inauguration.”
That’s pretty vague. While we may never truly know what the three men discussed, we can take some wild guesses.
Here is a list of possible talking points for the meeting:
How the Boston Red Sox built and paid for the Green Monster
Why Major League Baseball should have an exhibition game in Russia
Making the Yankees great again in 2017
Locker room talk
Finding a cabinet position for former outfielder Luke Scott
