Bud Selig F's Up Again

So this year's All-Star game was not called a tie by Bud but he still found a way to get too involved and screw things up.

On Monday, Brian Fuentes said he was told he would pitch the sixth inning of the All-Star game. On Tuesday, he was told he would not, which Fuentes blamed on the commissioner's office.

"That bumped me from my inning," Fuentes said. "It's kind of crazy they would have their hand in making up the lineup." On Tuesday, two hours before game time, Fuentes said AL pitching coach Jim Hickey told him that there had been a "misunderstanding" and that AL Manager Joe Maddon had not been aware that the commissioner's office wanted the starting pitchers to work two innings.

That left one fewer inning for the relievers and that left Fuentes out.

"That soured me a little bit," Fuentes said.

"To think that someone in MLB would dictate who pitches when and where, that is not the way the game is supposed to be played."

Next thing you know, Bud is going to pick the players for the game. It is far past time that he steps asid.
