I never told you how much I hate Bud Selig. The way he looks and wears these ugly tweed-looking jackets. The way he talks. His ugly 1980s’ glasses. Plus, I never respected him.
He has fumbled so many times. He screwed up the All-Star game several years ago. He screwed up the steroids investigation. He screwed up MLB’s stance on PEDs by allowing the league to ignore it for so many years.
Now he wants to punish A-Rod for his allegation. That is a total crock of chili.
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig came out roaring Wednesday, putting Alex Rodriguez on notice that the Yankee third baseman’s admitted performance-enhancing drug use may not go unpunished.
In an interview with USA Today, Selig was asked if he would consider suspending the three-time American League MVP after Rodriguez told ESPN on Monday that he had juiced from 2001 through 2003 when he played for the Rangers.
“It was against the law, so I would have to think about that,” Selig told the paper. “It’s very hard. I’ve got to think about all that kind of stuff.”
Excuse me. Which idiot lives behind these glasses? MLB did its survey testing during 2003 but there were no punishments for players who tested positive. In 2001 and 2002, there was no drug-testing program in place. It was during 2004 when players were first subject to possible penalties if they tested positive for banned substances. The above years 2001-2003 was when A-Rod admitted use. He stopped after 2003, according to his report.
How can you, Selig, logically punish someone when there was no system in place. On top of that, there are others who failed. Precisely 103 other players. Plus we have Bonds, Sosa, McGwire, Pettitte, Dyskstra, Tejada, and more. Punish them all. Punish the entire MLB. Go ahead. Be an idiot.
Seriously, this man needs to go. I vote for Jane Heller. She’ll do a better job than that doofus.
