Maybe I need to get my eyes checked, but I think this article says Selig wants the Sox to do well in the playoffs.

Selig and Reinsy are friends. Selig probably does want the Sox to do well in the playoffs.

Of course Selig likes the Sox. He wanted to buy them and move them to Milwaukee before he got the Pilots from Seattle. If he had done so, it wouldn't be necessary for me to have this dual allegiance.

I'm sure Lip has plenty of info about Selig helping Reinsdorf and his group to buy the team. In return, Reinsdorf helped Selig become the commish. If I remember correctly, Eddie DeBartolo was the front runner in buying the team, but he had some gambling connections or something??

Bud knows that the Sox being successful is very helpful to the league. The Bosox and yanks are already a given. A successful team in the 2nd biggest market is great for tv packages ect. Chicago is the sleeping giant in some respects when you consider how big baseball would be if both teams were perrienial playoff participants. Rival NY.

if selig likes the sox, why doesn't he reinstate a certain "shoeless" baseball player, and make him eligible for hall-of-fame voting?

I don't think Bud really cares who wins the World Series, as long as he can bring more fans into the game. He really can't have a big bias towards any team besides the Brewers, can he?

Bud Selig is a SOX fan because Jerry Reinsdorf told him to be :smile:
