Bud Selig has got to go.
Baseball's commissioner again and again proves that he is the most inept man to ever hold the position. He's a joke. He's a disgrace. He needs to go.
Somebody should have known that making a baseball owner commissioner would be a huge mistake. Selig has more than lived up to this admonition.
His mishandled the strike as interim commissioner. He took an ostrich-like approach to the steroids controversy. See no evil, hear no evil. He botched a decision at the 2003 All-Star Game which ended, for the first time, in a tie.
And he nearly ruined the World Series this year, barely avoiding a situation in which a Series game could have been decided by default as a rainout.
Baseball has been in trouble for a long time. Its history proves that the national game has a remarkable resiliency, though. I suspect it will survive even Bud Selig.
But, he needs to go. When somebody writes a book on Selig's life, why not title the baseball chapter "Too little, too late"?
Or simply call it "Inept." That would describe the last 14 years rather nicely.
