PRO-RECALL: The Yankees bullpen makes more than the Expos ... who may call any of three countries home next season. The 2002 All-Star Game ended in a tie ... and the Midsummer Classic now decides home-field advantage in the World Series. Teams are losing money as utility infielders inch towards eight-figure contracts. And then there's Pete Rose.
NO RECALL: None of this stuff is really Bud's fault. (Blame the All-Star Game tie on Joe Torre and Bob Brenly, who used up their pitchers too early.) After all, it'd take a wizard on the order of Professor Albus Dumbedore to cure the economic disparity in the game today. And in a lot of ways, baseball is thriving with Selig at the helm. (Check out the last week of the playoffs.) And if that doesn't convince you that Selig is the best man for the job, try becoming a Yankees fan.
REPLACEMENTS: Bob Costas, Pete Rose, Yogi Berra, David Stern, George Steinbrenner
