Bud Selig is at It Again

Yesterday, Bud Selig put himself on TV in Houston for the sole purpose of endorsing Cecil Cooper as the next manager of the Houston Astros. Whaaaaat? This man has more personal agendas than the President of the United States (amongst countless other examples, he moved the Brewers to the NL in order to create a Cubs/Brewers rivalry). Not surprisingly, Cooper played 10 years (1977-1987) for the Milwaukee Brewers when Selig owned the team.

During the years which Selig owned the Brewers, I can only imagine how he would have reacted if Bowie Kuhn and/or Peter Ueberroth would have mandated who managed his team. YOU CAN'T DO SUCH A THING. Bud, baseball is not a dictatorship! If the Astros believe Cooper gives them the best chance of winning, then he will be hired. Otherwise, both you and Cooper will be shown the door. What more can one ask for than a 40+ game audition???

Shut the F up, and actually do your due diligence. After all, you skipped out on the Home Run record, something even your lover (Hank Aaron) made a point to be a part of.

Whether Terry Francona wears his game jersey under his pullover is more important than EVERYTHING else that Selig has slid under the rug in the past decade??? At any point in the game, is Francona going to insert himself as a pinch-runner? MLB's front office is embarrassing.

You're a soft, indecisive, and weak-minded individual that I, for one, can't wait for the day in which you step down (end of 2009 season). Bob Costas and/or John Schuerholz, step right up! There have never been smaller shoes to fill...
