The case against the Used Car Salesman

More proof Bud Selig is the Worst Commissioner in the History of Sports: Almost eight years ago, Bud Selig vowed to do something about the local-television-blackout rules keeping tens of millions of fans from watching his sport.

Who is Bud Selig’s biggest fluffer?
