Dear Bud Selig,
I like you. I really do. I have long been a supporter of yours and thought the bad rap you get is often undeserved. But quite frankly I am sick and effing tired of hearing your comments on the Tampa Bay Rays’ stadium situation.
Earlier today, you referred to the Rays attendance (29th out of 30 teams) and used words like “inexcusable” and “disappointing,” and how “nobody can defend that.” Strong words to be sure.
But guess what Bud. We already know this. The Rays already know this. The media already knows this. EVERYBODY already knows this.
What we need are ideas and solutions. We need positive rhetoric. What we don’t know need is a commissioner trashing one of his own team’s customers. And we don’t need another blowhard dumping on the situation from 2,000 miles away.
So, until you want to be part of the solution and want to come down here and help. And until you’ve got something new to add to the conversation…
JUST SHUT THE HELL UP!
