I don't know if I've ever written a post concerning the commisioner of baseball, Bud Selig. There are some things I just don't have the stomach for. But Selig has made the news on several fronts recently, most notably in America's Heartland. Doug Pappas has been all over the disaster area that the Brewers have become, and Jay Jaffe wrote several good posts explaining the current situation too.

If that's not enough for you, Jayson Stark has a column over at ESPN about how Bud and MLB have continued to make a laughing stock of themselves with regards to the Montreal-San Juan Expos:

"It's like a whirlpool," says one baseball man who once worked for the Expos, "that has turned into a cesspool."

It is a shame that they will not make a competitive offer to keep Vlad Guerrero, who is possibly the greatest player in franchise history (taking nothing away from Rock Raines or Andre Dawson—you can keep Kid Carter). Guerrero strikes me as the kind of player who would even consider staying with the Expos for less than the market value. Oh, well. Their loss will some other team's gain.

Meanwhile, Selig is hoping that everything will be coming up Rose's for Christmas. Right?
