Bud Selig Could Help Pay Miller Park Stadium Tax

(Illustration: Jess Lemont (@BrewCrewJess)) A couple weeks ago my colleague Enrique Bakemeyer wrote about the seemingly never-ending conundrum of publicly financed sports facilities and more specifically, the sales tax for the five-county metro area that was initiated to finance and construct Miller Park. According to Don Walker of the Journal Sentinel, once the principal and interest...

How the 2015 Yankees win the Big MLB Butter Sculpture

I'm thinking we win the 9-inning Bud Selig Wild Card, followed by a victory binge worthy of Brian Williams-level hallucinogens. But hell, once you make the post-season, anything can happen - even Kansas City! So... the question is... how do we get to Oct. 5? Here's how.1. Pineda/Tanaka = Koufax/Drysdale. Or, at least, Whitey Ford/Ralph Terry. Hey, they're both 26, prime of life...

Are Sports Journalists Too Cozy with the Teams They Cover?

The JSonline chats with Brewers beat writers Tom Haudricourt and Todd Rosiak are usually good reads.  There’s still a fair amount of frivolous babble that would be more appropriate for sports talk radio callers, but there are always a couple of decent questions mixed in.  Case in point – the chat with Rosiak earlier this week included a question that touches on the inherent...

The Brewers are giving away a Bud Selig bobblehead

I know Bud Selig is the man that brought the Brewers to Milwaukee, but I think the level of honor the Brewers are giving him after his retirement as MLB Commissioner is a little bit ridiculous.

MLB Thinking About ... Shrinking the Strike Zone?

I know there's this new feeling that with Bud Selig gone, baseball will be heading into an exciting new era.  I'm on that bandwagon.  I think some of those traditions Selig was still holding on to could use a jolt (that being said, Selig did have a lot of tradition-breakers come through his tenure).One of the things I really don't agree with is shrinking the strike zone.  What...

Coming Soon to a Minor League Ballpark Near You: Pitch Clocks

The minor leagues will once again be a testing ground for a potential future Major League change, as Major League Baseball has decided to use pitch clocks in all Triple-A and Double-A parks during the upcoming season. The decision, made by Commissioner Bud Selig before the office was turned over to Rob Manfred, came after a successful trial run for pitch clocks and other pace-of...

Point/Counterpoint: New Commissioner Edition

By Glen McKee and Somebody Else So, the witch is dead Bud Selig is finally done as commissioner of MLB, having made enough money to make Dick Cheney jealous during his run and doing the same for the team owners.  There’s a new guy as commissioner, and we can’t yet remember his name but we assume this is him: What we do know about New Commish is that he’s already putting...

Everything is quiet on the Moncata trail... too quiet.

Odds are Cuban wonder boy Yoan Moncata will soon be passport-stamped for MLB legitimacy, spawning the hottest insider bidding war since Charles and David Koch bought South Dakota. For Yankee fans, this will be the ultimate test of Hal Steinbrenner's true genetic lineage: Is he the son of George... or Bud Selig? Moncata is a 19-year-old SS likely destined for Triple A. They...

New MLB Commissioner Wants to End Defensive Shifts

When Rob Manfred was named commissioner, it was said that he was mostly a continuation of Bud Selig, with similar approaches to the game. Under Selig, the game was constantly in favor of big market teams, and it seemed like every time a small market team found an advantage, it was taken away. It looks like the more things change, the more they stay the same, as Manfred is following...
