Bye bye Bud

Bud Selig reiterates his plans to retire after the 2012 season, according to MLB.com and the Chicago Tribune. Key "accomplishments" of the Selig era --

1. Incompetence at the bargaining table leads to cancelation of the 1994 World Series.
2. Decides that All-Star game should be a tie
3. Disgraceful conduct toward Barry Bonds -- in essence, declaring him guilty prior to trial -- during the breaking of the buddy Hank Aaron's home run record.
4. Allowing extensive conflicts of interest --his daughter owning the Brewers, the 2-year ownership by MLB of the Expos....

I could go on but why bother?

Selig's biggest blunder is allowing the All-Star Game to determine home field in the World Series.
