Bud Selig and his posse sent Tigers left fielder Delmon Young to his room with out dinner following Young’s run-in with a Jewish man in New York City early Friday morning. Young has been suspended for seven days without pay. The commissioner’s office said that the penalty is retroactive to Friday.

Of course that umpire called Jerry Hairston out. Todd Helton's aura was still on that base. How great is the Bud Selig era? Chicks dig the long ball and now Umpires dig the Web Gem. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
