A’s owner Lew Wolff defends Bud Selig from attacks that he looked the other way on steroids:
“There’s one thing I don’t think enough people realize about Bud,” Wolff said. “He knows that baseball is the players. Whether he reacted soon enough to the steroid situation or not, once he did react, it was still a fight with the union. And it shouldn’t have been a fight. If there’s anybody who puts baseball first, it’s Bud. And I don’t say this just because I went to school with him.”
He’s right. He’s also saying it because he’s probably going to ask Bud to strong-arm the Giants out of San Jose in the next couple of months too!
