Bad news: Selig not retiring
OAFC BBS - All Topics: Off Field Matters: Bad news: Selig not retiring
According to Buster Olney, Selig's term as commissioner will be renewed for at least two more years.
Damn! We could hope for something else.
Selig's extension was a no brainer...no other commissioner has put more money than Selig has done into his fellow owners pockets...
interesting story of how Selig's moves on Dodgers sale could come back to haunt the other owners:
check out this quote from Selig:
"I don't know of any deal where we have taken less money because we like somebody," Selig said.
umm, what about nixing a better offer to buy the A's from the Piccinini group (who were committed to staying in Oakland), and then pushing an agreement for Wolff and Fischer to buy instead?
