PLAYERS: Bud SeligRex Ryan

We all recognize the Internet for the speed with which it works, turning news loose upon the world in a mere instant. However, what we don’t give the web enough credit for is managing to pull up random items from the sands of time, shining a light on seemingly forgotten secrets for all to see. Well, in 2009, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig showed up at the All-Star FanFest in St. Louis, and apparently he was in a jovial mood. He agreed to take a photo with one Reds fan clad entirely in his team’s colors, but Selig should have checked the youngster’s T-shirt, first. Four years later, a tipster sent a copy of the photo to Deadspin, and it features Selig posing with a kid wearing a T-shirt with “A*Roid” (yes, an asterisk) inscribed across the front. The photo begs the question of which is worse, Selig’s mishap, or Rex Ryan posing with a Jets fan wearing a T-shirt that said “This team makes me drink.” Check out Selig’s photo below.

It is only a matter of time before Major League Baseball hands down its punishment to the players involved in the Biogenesis fiasco.

Selig once posed with fan wearing ominous 'A*Roid' T-shirt

Get a load of this photo taken a few years ago of baseball commissioner Bud Selig posing with a fan wearing an "A*ROID" T-shirt. Taken four years ago at an All-Star game event —and recently posted by Deadspin — it makes you wonder if the commish was oblivious to the intended message or he was smiling because he had a plan knowing one day he would hold Alex Rodriguez...

Caption the Photo: Bud Selig Posing With Kid Wearing “A*Roid” T-Shirt

  I’m going to give Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig, the benefit of the doubt and suggest that he didn’t read the kid’s T-shirt and that the big cheesy smile on his face is because he’s happy to meet a young baseball enthusiast… H/T to Sports World Report for the photo.

Welp, here’s a picture of Bud Selig posing with a kid wearing an “A-Roid” shirt

According to Deadspin, the below picture was snapped during a Fanfest event before the 2009 All-Star Game in St. Louis. Was Bud too senile to notice the shirt, or does he really just hate Alex Rodriguez that much? In all likelihood it was the former, but I’m just going to hold out hope for the latter. The post Welp, here’s a picture of Bud Selig posing with a kid wearing an...

Bud Selig reportedly prepared to ‘throw the book’ at Alex Rodriguez

Unlike Milwuakee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has yet to reach an agreement with Major League Baseball regarding punishment for his alleged involvement with Tony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic. MLB investigators have reportedly uncovered much more evidence against A-Rod than Braun, but the belief is that Rodriguez is going to appeal [...]

Alex Rodriguez Must Stand Up To Bud Selig

The issues in the Biogenesis case are two-fold: 1) the accused players supposedly used PEDs, which is against the rules of MLB’s drug policy, and 2) they used illegal drugs, thereby breaking the real law. It is there that gives Commissioner Bud Selig authority to go after these guys and dole out punishments, some exceeding the 50-game ban for a first offense. RODRIGUEZ: Not doing...

If A-Rod Appeals, Selig Prepared To Invoke “Integrity Of The Game” Ban

Alex Rodriguez has remained intent on fighting whatever suspension Major League Baseball decides for the disgraced Yankee third baseman, and should he choose to do so, Bud Selig is prepared to use one of his most extreme powers as commissioner; the right to “take action to preserve the integrity of the game” reports the Daily News. By invoking that rarely used power — embodied...

No Suspension For David Ortiz In PhoneGate

Re-Thinking PossibleAccording to the Globe's Nick Cafardo, MLB has decided not to suspend (or otherwise punish) David Ortiz for his attack on an defenseless bullpen phone on Saturday. Apparently, it was a close call (pun definitely intended), but you've gotta think that Bud Selig has a few more pressing items on his agenda today. Refreshingly, the bad call by the umpire actually...

Shanahan won't be found on Twitter

Well, this isn't a surprise, but it's still amusing. Mike Shanahan took some questions Monday from a reporter wondering how up with technology the Redskins coach is these days. Shanahan's peers across sports, from Bill Belichick to Bud Selig, are known to eschew technology, so it's not strange that Shanahan isn't into email, Facebook, Twitter and the like. What...

The First Rule of Twitter Fight Club Is…

…that you don’t talk about Twitter Fight Club. Because, let’s face it, Twitter fights are about as lame as stumbling into In-N-Out Burger after a five day bender and ordering just a small fries and diet soda. But last night, in the wake of a painful Red Sox loss, as the Nation piled it on Jerry Meals, umpires in general, MLB, Bud Selig, Joe Maddon and Rays fans everywhere,...
