We can handle the truth
On Thursday, when announcing MLB's official inquiry into the use of performance-enhancing drugs by Barry Bonds and (presumably) others, commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig said, "Nothing is more important to me than the integrity of the game of baseball."
Well, that's just not true. If the most important thing to the commissioner was the game's integrity, he wouldn't sanction crazy-quilt interleague scheduling, or disseminate disinformation about the public benefits of $500 million ballparks, or broker shady transactions that transfer franchises from one crony to another. Or secretly borrow money from a franchise owner.
