Daver, I'll pay you 100 dollars to kill Selig, or 200 dollars to drag him around on one of your cars.

Note sarcasm...

The Body brings up some very valid points in his argument,and I think Bud might have a problem coming up with an answer to them.

To quote Milt Pappas from a radio interveiw a few years ago"The game sucks today".


Cerberus get real with the money and we can talk.

"The former professional wrestler criticized baseball's salaries, citing the $75 million,
six-year contract agreed to last week by Andruw Jones and the Atlanta Braves."

"God bless Andruw Jones -- more power to him," Ventura said. "But he only hit .250 and was rewarded with a $75 million contract. Can you imagine what Harmon Killebrew and Tony Oliva are thinking? You're going to pay a .250 hitter $75
million? Doesn't that tell you something's wrong with the league?"

Its about time this was said bya high ranking official. I agree 100% with the body.

He's a lot smarter than people give him credit for. He's a lot more articulate then people give him credit for. He's not a lawyer. Don't expect him to talk like a lawyer.

Ventura is right. Selig likes to use the "look in the mirror" analogy. MLB has a lot more to answer for than the State of Minnesota does.

My only problem (and it's a little off-topic), if the State of Minnesota passes a stadium bill dependent on Revenue Sharing and Salary Caps, doesn't that mean that the Vikings will get a stadium bill as well? Hopefully, they're thinking ahead on this one, and will accomodate both.
