    I am still not completely sure that Bud Selig isn't some kind of android being controlled by other people, but his time as commish overall brought some pretty good things and I think it's pretty well deserved.

    IMO he turned a blind eye to steroids for too long, bungled the All-Star game (and as a result "made the game count") and I despise the 1 game Wild-card play-off.

    2 new HOFers!!

    The wild cards have been wildly successful. The AS Game bullpens had been poorly managed for years and it was only a matter of time before that situation reared its head. Definitely took a bullet over that AS game, what real options did he have gambling with other people's money invested in million dollar arms? I agree making it "matter" may have been an overreaction but really, prior to that it just alternated years. It was worth a shot but it's all behind us now. Also hard to pin steroids on one man and not countless men who came before him or the union that would have no part in discussion about them either. Testing was finally put in place and punishments increased but if he's your scapegoat of all people thats fine. I just think he will be remembered well and did tremendous things within his office's abilities.

    I too already had these guys. Seems Selig signed a bunch of his business cards, and I have a signed copy of Schuerholz/s book. Time to change the number in my sig; 250 has a nice ring to it.

    Those are impressive numbers. Keep plugging away if you can; I won't be adding any new ones that are already in, not unless some financial windfall occurs!

    I've added scans of my Selig and Schuerholz above, if anyone cares.

    And in my opinion he was the first person to do something about it. Hard to pinpoint a situation on just someone when no one else in the sport was saying something about it (clean players, media, owners, MLBPA, etc.).
