What the hell are they thinking?// Oh that's it, they aren't.  This is all a rich boys' club and they're all in cahoots w/ each other.  DOn't want someone to come in and see what's really going on.....  Oh no, that could mean (gasp) trouble!

So when the current agreement btwn owners and players expire, Selig will leave that mess to the next commish!

Commissioner DOES NOT = Best Interests of Baseball.  It used to!  Not any longer.

This is the owner's present to Selig for not giving them up during the Congressional Hearing.  That is exactly what this is. How convenient the timing.

The timing is certainly suspicious but this has probably been in the making for some time. I don't get how this can be allowed to go unchecked.

If I were Congress, I'd check this out.

In the Selig era, I think it = Best Interests of Owners.

Selig as quoted in the piece on the MLB site:

"I will make this prediction to you," he said. "By the time I leave, you won't recognize this sport."

:shock:

Yeah, I heard that too.  That was my same reaction.  He said several things that were disturbing.  He's going to write a book.  He thinks he did what was in the "BEST INTERESTS OF BASEBALL"   :spaz:.  Yeah right!

MLB is committing suicide. 

And, as Spidey said, the timing is suspicious.

We need to call 1-800-AL QAEDA and see if they take requests.
