Baseball world shocked - SHOCKED! - over revelations about Bud Selig

It's a stunner.  The sainted MLB commissioner - and statue - actually chose... money? Some tidbits following the resignation of Bob Bowman, the man behind Selig's money machine.

While at MLB Advanced Media, Mr. Bowman engaged in a pattern of behavior that included propositioning female colleagues, allegedly having consensual relationships with subordinate co-workers and cultivating a culture of partying and heavy drinking with employees outside the office, people familiar with the matter said.
At least 10 years ago, Bob DuPuy, who was then serving as MLB’s president and chief operating officer, was told of concerns about Mr. Bowman’s behavior by BAM employees and raised them with Bud Selig, the league’s commissioner at the time, according to people familiar with the situation... But Mr. Bowman remained with the company as it grew increasingly lucrative for team owners.
“What he gave in heartburn was always overshadowed by what he gave in money,” said a former high-ranking baseball official. This person said Mr. DuPuy raised longstanding concerns about Mr. Bowman but, “Bud had no interest in dealing with it.”
Say it ain't so.

Just went to the handy dandy internet anagram generator - a guilty pleasure of mine for decades now - ran "bud selig."

The man cannot even generate a decent anagram, although "Bi Sludge" has a certain charm to it.

Tells you about the kind of night I'm having. Is anybody really surprised here, though? I'll tell you what "Bud Selig" means in my native tongue, though, which is spoken only in remote alpine pastures of the Carpathian Mountains. It's slang for "cheap whore."
