Hey Fred, This Buds For You – Selig To Get Two Year Extension
And the beat goes on…
Uncle Bud, or Commissioner Bud Selig as most of you know him, will be extended for at least two more years according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.
But of course he is…
The dirty deed will be consummated later this week at the owners’ meetings.
Selig became MLBs acting commissioner in 1992 thanks to some late night hi-jinks by his pal Fred Wilpon who coaxed many of the dissenting owners to let Bud reign supreme.
This is great news for Fred and Saul and Jeff who are now assured of a chief ally who will not let their grasp of the team wither away like a dead leaf on a tree. Selig will continue to twist some arms, look the other way and even bend the rules to keep his pal Fred on the throne in Flushing
Maybe this time, the Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler will invest in a new suit that didn’t come off the rack at JC Penneys.
If this happens, I wonder if Sandy Alderson stays on for the entire duration of his contract or resigns before that?
I wonder if Paul DePodesta waits it out to become the future Mets GM or takes the first job that’s offered to him?
Remember, you heard it here first.
