Buzzard Selig gets contract extension.

Why baseball owners want a Commish in his 70's is beyond me, but they have given Selig a three year contract extension. Bad things he has done via Sportsline:

1. Canceled the 1994 World Series.

2. Wasn't nearly as responsive as he should have been in a leadership role as anabolic steroids and HGH were getting a grip on the game.

3. Threatened Minnesota and Florida with contraction following the 2001 season, a ham-handed scheme that the Twins never deserved, would never hold up to legal challenges and that needlessly heaped more negative publicity on the sport.

4. Instituted interleague play, a hit at box offices in New York and Chicago that still doesn't make up for the deviation from the game's tradition.

Number four is a travesty for me. I will never forgive his tired ass for that one.
