On Thursday night the MLB commissioner repeatable referred to the 2013 first year player draft as the “2000 first year player draft.” Selig announced Mark Appel as the first selection of the 2000 first year player draft. He would go on to refer to the No. 6 and No. 8 and No. 19th selections as happening in 2000 as well. Just for the record Adrian Gonzalez was selected as the first overall pick in the real 2000 MLB Draft.

Bud Selig forgets what year it is, announces picks for "2000" player draft (Video)

On Thursday, MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced the selections for the 2013 player draft. However, for some reason Selig made the mistake of referring to some picks as selections for the "2000" first-year player draft, a mistake he made three times with the first eight picks. Selig did it the first time right off the bat with No. 1 pick Mark Appel of the Houston Astros...

Selig keeps calling 2013 MLB Draft ’2000′ draft

Old habits die hard. At least they do for Bud Selig. The MLB commissioner announced three of the first eight picks of the 2013 first-year player draft as the “2000″ draft. He even called it the 2000 first-year player draft for the first overall pick, which he had all year to rehearse. “With the first [...]

Bud Selig Still Thinks It’s The Year 2000

Bud Selig and Major League Baseball have long been criticized for their reluctance to shift into the 21st Century and adapt emerging technologies. We now may have an explanation for that, as it appears pretty clear that Selig is still stuck in the year 2000. While calling out the draft picks for the 2013 MLB Player Draft on Thursday, Selig repeatedly kept saying “the 2000 first...

Bud Selig Kept Saying "The 2000 First-Year Player Draft" Last Night

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig Has a Really Long Brain Fart During the MLB Draft

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig had a little trouble telling time during the first round of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft Thursday night. No, he didn't call PM AM or get his time zones confused. He got the year wrong, and not just by a little bit either. Bud didn't party like it was 1999, but he was close. No Bud, it isn't 2000 anymore; not for a long time. Had it...

Jagoff MLB Commish Bud Selig Referred to the Draft as the "2000 first year player draft" 3 times

Bud Selig Repeatedly Calls 2013 MLB Draft the ’2000′ Draft While Announcing Picks (Video)

A lot of people who accuse MLB commissioner Bud Selig of being out of touch just want to complain. But Selig gave them some real ammunition Thursday night. Selig presided over the latest rendition of the MLB draft Thursday with all the aplomb and accuracy of a commissioner who may be unaware how the years are passing him by. As Selig read the draftees’ names, he kept making one...

JSOnline's Ryan Braun Editorial Misses the Point, Bud Selig Must be Held Accountable

(Image: AP/Morry Gash) Following ESPN’s report that Tony Bosch will cooperate to help MLB suspend up to 20 players, JSOnline published an editorial that badly missed the point.  Headlined “Has Ryan Braun let down his fans?”, the sanctimony was laid on so thick you could almost choke on it.  The focus of the editorial was that Braun needs to come clean about his steroid...

Video: Bud Selig thinks he’s hosting the 2000 MLB Draft in 2013

Commissioner Bud Selig said that he was announcing the picks for the 2000 draft instead of the 2013 draft not once, not twice, but three times. Wow.

Biogenesis, Bud Selig, and frontier justice

If you’ve read any sports blogs or watched any sports media in the last couple of days you’re probably aware of the Outside The Lines report that Major League Baseball is planning to suspend about 20 players sometime in the coming weeks. You may have missed the source on the report but this has been issue #1 for most sports media outlets since the NBA Finals matchup was set....

Column: Selig finally takes stand in steroid fight

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist If you believed Ryan Braun's first alibi - and a lot of Milwaukee baseball fans did - then maybe his tale about showing up in the records of a Miami anti-aging clinic because his lawyers needed more expertise on performance-enhancing drugs isn't so implausible after all. Alex Rodriguez's claim that he only used...

Why is MLB's pursuit so intense?

The information was impossible to ignore. Baseball could not simply dismiss the original Miami New Times report alleging that players had purchased performance-enhancing drugs from Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic in the Miami area. Not if the sport was serious about cracking down on PED use. Not when the founder of the clinic, Anthony Bosch, was the son of a doctor who allegedly...
