That’s nice, but what we really want to know… (Bud Selig memoir)

June 8, 2015

According to a story on the Sports Business Daily website, “Recently retired MLB Commissioner Bud Selig has hired Sandy Montag of IMG as his agent to represent him in selling the rights to a book about his life and baseball. Montag will also represent Selig for speaking engagements, consulting and other matters.”

I was under the impression that this was already a done deal. Obviously I was in error.

According to the story, Selig said, “The book ‘will be the story of my 53 years in baseball, and many subjects will be covered.’”

Many subjects?

I think I speak for a great number of fans who say the main thing to tell us readers, Mr. Selig, is what did you know about PEDs and when did you know it? That deserves a chapter of its own, but I would not be surprised if it got a “mere mention.”

Meantime, Newsweek posted a major excerpt regarding this issue from Jon Pessah’s new book, The Game: Inside the Secret World of Major League Baseball’s Power Brokers.
