To most bloggers, this news is ancient but I have been so swamped with other projects I did not get a chance to cover it until today. First of all, why?
1994 – Was commissioner while the strike drove away fans, some that never returned and canceled the World Series for the first time since 1904.
2001 – Charged with racketeering and conspiracy along with fellow scumbag Jeffrey Loria (settled out of court for big $$$).
2002 – Called the All-Star game a tie in the 12th in fear of risking the arms of pitchers on the mound, killed All-Star game ratings for years to come.
2005 – Faced Congress for long-ignored Steroid issue that made owners rich and made players the scapegoat.
2008 – Selig’s contract extended until 2012!!! WHAT?!?
Bud will forever be known as the “Steroids Commisioner“. Here’s to another 5 years of concealing the truth and destroying America’s pastime. Thanks, Bud! Keep diggin’ and you might find some integrity.
