Now that's chutzpah

If you didn't catch Bud Selig being briefly interviewed on Comcast Sports Net the other night, you missed quite an answer to the question that is making all Nationals fans crazy this fall: How much is Major League Baseball hurting the team for next season and beyond by letting 15 months and an entire season pass without the team being sold?

Well, Bud says not that much. You know why? Because Bud says that the free agent market really isn't that strong this year. Yes, he actually said that. So if it had been a strong free agent market this year, they would have already sold the team? Yeah, right.

Can you believe the nerve of this guy? This is the same guy who said a couple weeks ago that the team couldn't be sold yet since he had only met with five of the eight bidding ownership groups. That's right, he had the entire baseball season, and he had such a busy schedule he couldn't get around to setting up eight meetings--in more than six months! Thanks for caring, Bud.

Having a baseball team in Washington this summer was fantastic. But Bud is quickly taking the enjoyment out of it for me--and I'm going to stop talking about this because I'm afraid I'll become too angry and incoherent to continue.
