Topics I've Started

Bud Selig

15 July 2003 - 05:58 PM

Man I hate this guy. I have had it with him ever since he announced contraction two days after a great World Series two years ago. This guy has no clue how to run a sport. Outside of the advent of wild-card, did he really do a good job. It seems majority of the fans have gripes with this guy making decisions.

Here are some of the reasons to why I hate Selig:

-- Contracting the Twins and Expos. Why in the world would he want to contract them? He should find ways for them to make them successful. Contracting is never the answer. Also why make the announcement two days after a great World Series

-- I am tired of his whining about how the sport is in trouble and how small-market teams can't succeed. Baloney! I think with a good management, anyone can succeed. Bud never praise the good things about baseball. All he does is just bash the sport rather than praise the small-market teams.

-- It seems he makes decisions because the owners tell him to do so. I don't recall guys like Stern, Tagilabue, and Bettman making decisions because the owners tell them to do so. They do it with their own gut.

-- I don't have a problem with the All-Star Game ending with a tie, but I have a problem with Selig overdoing the All-Stat Game by announcing that the winner of the All-Star Games gets homefield. Huh? You think guys like Lance Carter, C..C Sabathia, Dimitri Young, Armando Benitez, and others that have nothing to play for care about who wins the homefield? Now that was really dumb.

-- Selig tends to bend over for the union. I know lot of small-market owners was not happy about the new CBA. They wanted a lockout till they got the cap so why did Selig bend over for the players. I was all for a lockout unless every team had a chance to win. I don't like this new CBA one bit.

-- The Zito/Clemens mess was embrassing. Why in the world did Selig caved in to the A's demands? Zito did not have to pitch in the game, but he should be there in uniform. He is healthy enough to go IMO.

-- I wonder if Selig truly thinks before he makes decisions.

He has just been embrassing as a commisioner. I hope George W. Bush is the next commissioner of baseball. At least, he has a clue about the sport.

Zito Should Be Pitching Not Clemens

14 July 2003 - 07:45 PM

I am really annoyed at Bud Selig for caving in to the A's demands about Zito not pitching in the ASG. Why? He got selected so he should be pitching especially since he is not hurt. No ifs, ands, or buts. I have a real problem with that.

General Dusty Spouts His Mouth On Skin Color

14 July 2003 - 07:41 PM

Chris Russo calls Dusty Baker as General Dusty so I could not help but mock the name.

Last week, he talked about how people with dark skin can handle the heat while people with white skin can't. I have a problem with it. For one thing, his comments are no different than what ex-Dodger GM Al Campanis said about how blacks would never make great managers. Second, I like to think the player can handle the heat because of God-given talent not because of the color of the skin. You have to wonder if he lost his players after that. I know if I was a player, I would be ticked off. I recalled when George Karl made statements about how black players are not good fit to be coaches and I think he has never gained the respect of his players in Milwaukee after those statements.

What an idiot!

Sad State Of The Minnesota Twins

10 July 2003 - 08:30 PM

I am starting to give up on the Twins fast. I really am not happy watching the Twins at all. This team has underacheived all year. I am trying to be patient, but when the Twins are going through a horrible strech like this, it's hard to care or get interested. I think the Twins have overacheived the last two years. The offense is not that good and the pitching stinks. Basically what I see now is what I saw from the Twins years ago. I hope they keep it up with the losing so they can have a fire sale. I want to see Cuddyer, Restrovich, Mauer, Adam Johnson, and other prospects in the big leagues instead of watching fat cats in the current roster.

GO KC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think this is the Royals year. I hope I am wrong.
