Beg to Differ
I love Joe Posnanski's work, but I have to disagree with his rosy assessment of commissioner Bud Selig (POINT AFTER, May 2). Selig presided over the most profound scandal in baseball history, the rampant use of steroids, resulting in many of the most hallowed records being rendered meaningless. Selig's I-didn't-know attitude just proves that he was often asleep at the wheel.

I am going to assume that Posnanski's column on Bud Selig was dripping with sarcasm. All Selig has to show for his 12-year tenure as commissioner are huge sums of money for MLB and its players. Every other aspect of the game is far worse now than when he came on the scene. While there is not enough space to document all of his shortcomings, I'd like to sum up Selig's reign by paraphrasing an old joke: This would never happen if Bud Selig were alive today.
