Thanks a lot, Bud Selig

One of the many travesties of the Bud Selig has been the expansion of MLB into two notably unsdeserving cities -- Miami and Tampa Bay. It's been a joke since Day One in both of those towns. Bruce Jenkins of the SF Chronicle had a great post about it tonight -- Another day another joke: the city of Miami still hosting a major-league franchise. When is contraction due, 2007? It can't come soon enough. Get these jokers out of the picture!Here come the Giants on Memorial Day, and admittedly, it's a bit of an anti-climax with Barry Bonds having hit his 715th homer in San Francisco, but did you see the telecast? There might have been 18 people in the ballpark. I love this talk about how a new stadium will revive baseball in South Florida -- NO CHANCE! It's not a baseball town and never will be. The good people of South Florida are into boxing, football and soccer, period, end of story.Either contract the Marlins or move them to a better place. Hell, even Las Vegas, with the gambling, prostitution and other late-night temptations for impressionable ballplayers, would be an improvement. And take down the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, while you're at it. Florida means spring training, that's it. It means a few thousand 87-year-old retired New Yorkers checking in on a game that doesn't count. Beyond that, no way. Another day, another travesty...
