    Wow, that's just scary.

    Did Cy Young win the first Cy Young?
    Did John Heisman win the first Heisman Trophy?

    Way to lower our expectations Bud, they were already pretty low but nothing is beyond you kind Bud.

    That is such a Kim Jong Un move.

    I now expect Sash Baron Cohen to play Bud in the movie.

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Re: Congratulations, Bud Selig!

    Serious question.

    If Selig has one more year left, MLB has to be hard at work at finding his replacement, right? He's not dying (THAT WE KNOW OF), so I also assume they're seeking a full-out replacement, not the interim slot that Selig filled for seemingly several decades. In this day of endless 160-word speculation, I'm surprised at how little I've heard about this. I guess people don't care that much, but it's inarguably a position of a good amount of power.

    Do we know whose names are being bandied about, even purely speculatively? I want the job, of course, but seeing as I've failed to submit my resume, present a platform, or work in sports, my prospects are dim. But nobody immediately springs to mind for me.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    It's been interesting in recent weeks to hear more and more executives speak of the Tigers' Dave Dombrowski as a candidate for Commissioner.

    Re: Congratulations, Bud Selig!

    Is the award in the shape of a syringe?

    I rode in an elevator with Selig once (RW Baird was in the same building as Selig). I should have hit the emergency stop button and given him an earful. He had 2 thugs with him though.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Those weren't thugs. They were the guys mlb paid to secretly spike the gator aid in clubhouses with steroids during the late 90's.

This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S.
