'FURIOUS' SELIG ABRUPTLY ENDS AARON PRESS CONFERENCE AFTER 1 QUESTION

Wednesday's press conference in St. Louis featured Bud Selig, Hank Aaron, Ryan Howard and Derek Jeter on the dais. The floor was open for questions:
  • "The first came from Ronald Blum, an Associated Press reporter. He wanted to know if Jeter had influenced George Steinbrenner'’s decision to retain Manager Joe Torre. Jeter demurred, the question-and-answer session abruptly ended, and Selig was furious.

As Jeter met later with a small group of reporters, Selig walked by, shook his head and scolded Blum for his question. Yet Selig should not have been surprised. The Yankees are the team that knows no off-season. In some ways, their absence from the World Series only heightens the drama of their story line."
