Selig to retire

Recommended Posts

I'm kind of curious of his plans to teach. I'd love to take a class taught by an MLB commish.

...and when he runs out of teaching material, he'll throw his hands in the air and call it a class, despite the lesson being incomplete.

Perhaps this one will allow Charlie Hustle into the Hall...

No comissioner will allow Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame, nor should they. I explained why in the Hall of Fame Bollot thread and am not going to repeat myself. He put in question the integrity of the game.

Selig never intended to let Rose back in baseball. He probably told Rose to come clean knowing that would get the public off his back. Which it did.

At least we'll get out early.

By putting Pete in the hall, I meant as a player only.

No, he'll end class late and give everyone C's.

No comissioner will allow has the power to put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame, nor shouldcan they.

There. Fixed that for ya.

The Commissioner of Baseball, nor anyone in MLB for that matter, has any authority over the Baseball Hall of Fame. They, like the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL, the Basketball Hall of Fame and the NBA, etc., are separate institutions, and have no direct connection other than as contributor-to-recipient relationships.

That said, I've heard Selig's retirement drivel before... only to see him elected to a new term. So I'll believe he's out the door when he's either out the door, or taking a dirt nap. Either way, MLB is an afterthought to me anymore.

True, I phrased that wrong. I meant back in the game.

Stay, Bud, stay. Your replacement is Andy MacPhail. As a Cubs fan, I'd rather have a well-meaning doofus like Selig running the show than McFail.

2009 W is out of the White House hmmmmm

Can a President become MLB Comish?

He can't :censored: up baseball as bad as he's :censored:ed up the country, so why not?

I don't know he'll probably coherse the Yankees in to selling the naming rights of Yankee Stadium to Haliburton, allowing them to rename Yankee Stadium to Haliburton Stadium.

Wasn't it W that traded Sammy Sosa from the Rangers to the Cubs/white sox(i really don't remember the team he got traded too). I'm not a rangers fan so someone that follows them can answer this, are the Rangers better off now with him gone than when he was the owner?

Yeah, that was under Bush's watch, but remember, he was only the managing partner of the ownership group, and tended to focus on media relations in the Metroplex. Frankly, Sosa was far from good for the Rangers (or the White Sox, for that matter), so I'd consider it far from being a blight on his ownership tenure. After all, whilst he was managing partner, the Rangers got Nolan Ryan, Kevin Brown, Ruben Sierra, Juan Gonzales, and Rafael Palmiero, and most of all, the Ballpark at Arlington.
