    I get it. He brings in a lot of money, but he still sucks. ...

    That's music to a baseball fan's ears if I've ever heard it. ...

    This week's sign that the apocalypse is upon us.

    What a fucking joke. The man and the news.

    Since the owners are the ones voting, it's no surprise he was extended.

    Vote was probably 30-0 (with the Brewers' voter — his daughter — NOT abstaining.)

    His daughter isn't involved in the team anymore.

    I'd be surprised if Steinbrenner didn't vote against him. I'm pretty sure Steinbrenner and Selig are not fond of each other.

    He may be a joke, HH, but F_B called it: all of this shit is clearly on the fucking owners. They would rather have status quo and no changes to be made, than to sit and have to deal with a new sheriff.

    It's about the money the game makes, not its quality.

    The days of an independent commissioner are long gone and will be for another three years.

    I always laugh when people place irrational blame on the players for the strike, or for their outrageous salaries, etc. The truth is, the owners are too stupid to save baseball from themselves.

    I'm waiting for the day when Selig is named Czar For Life.

    Ain't just baseball, my man. It's every team sport. Owners want salary caps so they are protected from their own fiscal stupidity.

    I'm surprised Brad Renfro perished before baseball will.
