A Selig Foot Roast
Bud Selig went and said something really stupid. After first expressing his displeasure at the fact that Manny decided to rest his knee instead of playing in the All Star game, which the AL won again, he left the boundries of sanity with his next thought. He said, OUTLOUD, and to reporters, that the pitchers who were elected to the All Star team should be PROHIBITED from pitching on the Sunday before the All Star festivities. I say festivities because it is still an EXHIBITION game, but oh boy! To pass a law that would prevent teams from starting what would be in most cases their best pitcher for a regular season game, a game that counts, is sheer idiocy! I guess we should be used to that from you, Bud, but you really put your foot in your mouth this time (see title). My goodness! Senility early? Or, to quote George Costanza's father, "Serenity now."
