Bud Selig is the commissioner of baseball.
The commissioner of baseball is supposed to act in the best interests of baseball.
The best interests of baseball do not include having its career home run leader linked to steroids, and having his usage be the subject of grand jury testimony that has resulted in 14 counts out perjury.
It is time for Selig to say, “Barry, the overwhelming evidence is that you are a liar and a cheater. Unless you prove other wise, there will be an asterisk next to your career home run mark.’’
While he’s at it, he should make the same speech to Roger Clemens.
To me, baseball’s drug policy is toothless unless he does this.
If cleaning the sport of drugs means that much to Selig, he must do this.
