Selig's true feelings slip out in 'selfish and provincial' scolding

(Newsday, Davidoff): "The World Baseball Classic is truly a fun, exciting event. It's a keeper, with room for growth.
  • "selfish, provincial interests" over the WBC.
The major-league regular season is "provincial"?!
  • Attention, 78,588,804 fans who attended regular-season games last year! No offense, but your interests are provincial!
Ay yi yi. There's no need for such misguided finger-pointing. The MLB regular season is a pretty big deal. You can't blame team officials who are interested in delivering their fan bases a title. Nor can you fault the players who choose, as is very much their right, not to participate in the WBC."...from article, "New Padres Closer Bell no fan of Mets' Peterson," last item in column.
  • It was crude of Selig to say, but the point is this is how he thinks and what motivates his actions. The typical globalist honestly believes, "What's yours is mine, and what's mine is mine," while selling himself as a saintly do-gooder and making $18.5 million in 2009. And gets away with it because no one has the nerve to question him. (sm)
