Apologize for that!

Bud Selig says he's sorry that baseball didn't "solve" its labor problems until recently.

"That [the reserve clause] should have been modified decades before someone like me came into the sport," Selig, who became the Milwaukee Brewers' owner in 1970, said after receiving an award from the Sports Lawyers Association. "Change was long overdue, and some balance to the relationship was necessary."

At the same meeting where Selig spoke:

Red Sox president Larry Lucchino called Selig "the Harry Truman of baseball commissioners" and said changes such as interleague play and the wild card make Selig the most accomplished of the sport's leaders.

Apparently Selig has decided that it is time to lob a couple of atomic bombs around. Or maybe he's inferring that the State Department is infested with Communist Party operatives. Or maybe Fay Vincent was really the Franklin D. Roosevelt of baseball. I need help with this allusion.

But Jason Giambi says MLB should apologize for having players, like him, who took steroids.

Giambi told USA Today on Wednesday that an apology for the use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball is long overdue.

"I was wrong for doing that stuff," Giambi said to the newspaper before a game against the Chicago White Sox. "What we should have done a long time ago was stand up - players, ownership, everybody - and said, 'We made a mistake.' We should have apologized back then and made sure we had a rule in place and gone forward.

Was he implying that the buck stops here on Bud's desk.

Or maybe that Bud should go on an old-fashioned whistle top tour.

Or Bud will stand with a Headline over is head that reads "Bonds Breaks Aaron's Record" the day after Bud tossing Barry out of the game and voids his career from 1999 to the present.

So I guess if Selig is Truman, then Montreal is Nagasaki.

Let's not stop there, Boot out Teddy Ballgame for his greenie abuse!

I'm sure they helped perk up his performance after those twinbills that we always hear about.
