Bud Selig For A Day

Jason at It Is About The Money, Stupid was kind enough to guest-post our suggestion for what to do if we were commissioner of Major League Baseball for a day. It includes a little of our email exchange that led up to the post.

He originally asked me to write a few sentences, I obliged, and then asked if he had any edits or suggestions. He offered some direction, I asked Will and Cliff for some input, and pretty soon the offering was almost 400 words. Check it out if you get a chance, and I'll re-post it here later on, just for the record.

Check out Jason's blog in general, too. (Not just because he was the first person to link to us). He's a Yankees guy, but always has a unique and objective take on tough issues like Stadium financing and other stuff throughout the league.


  1. Thanks, guys.

    For the record, I think the "if so-and-so didn't get voted unanimously, no one should" argument is a crock of steaming excrement. I was simply having some fun taking that angle with regards to Rickey.

  2. Absolutley. I linked because I liked the counter intuitive argument. At the time everyone was banging on Corky Simpson, and I thought it was a great point that the guy you want to break the mold with isn't Rickey.

    Let's wait for Maddux.
