Yesterday it was announced that Allan Huber “Bud” Selig, the commissioner of Major League Baseball since 1992, will be retiring at the end of the 2014 season. This is big news. While Bud probably will not get the kind of year-long retirement celebration that Mariano Rivera got, a lot of good things happened in the game of baseball during his tenure. (Modern ballparks and skyrocketing revenues are good, right?)
That being said, Bud is also responsible for a lot of crap—some of it quite embarrassing—that baseball fans do not like. So today we’re going to ignore all the good stuff and instead focus on all the bad stuff. Is that a fair and balanced approach? Not really. But hey, we’re not Fox News.
Ready to get your Selig-hate on? Great, let’s go.
