    New Baseball Book: In The Best Interests of Baseball

    The Revolutionary Reign of Bud Selig

    Should be an interesting read.

    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    I found his last effort on baseball - May the Best Team Win - to be disappointing.

    He does know his stuff, but I hope that the new book isn't just another variation on the theme of Baseball and Billions.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
