Bud Selig: "I'm the villain"

I'm sure we'll hear more about this in the hours to come, but Reid Laymance - Deputy Sports Editor at the Chronicle - just tweeted what seem to be quotes from Bud Selig:

Bud Selig: Astros will work out fine in AL ... If you want a villain, it's me because I decided it ... a great rivalry with Texas.

I wish Selig would just shut his mouth. His attempt at damage control is almost as laughable as his thought that Arlington vs Houston is a "great rivalry" in the making. We already had great rivalries with teams like the Braves and Cardinals. Rivalries are cemented in the playoffs, not on a map... especially not when one team is bad and the other is somewhere between above-average and great and the other is somewhere between laughingstock and disgrace to the game.

I agree. I too think the Rangers are a disgrace to the game.

Beyond that, my only response to this posting is: No sh*t.

PERIOD. The Diamond Backs
ASKED to move to the AL, because of
