Choose Your Buds Carefully, Baseball Fans

Okay, now that Bud Selig has announced his plans to step down from his commissioner’s throne, we all need to prepare for the new era due to begin sometime in 2012. No, it probably doesn’t matter who we, the fans, think should replace His Fugliness as commish, but it would matter if Bud decides to make himself available — a hired goon, as it were — for more than the inevitable “How I Saved Baseball” speech coming soon to a Lions Club near you.
So to help everyone who doesn’t necessarily agree that interleague play was the greatest invention since sliced stitches on a Whitey Ford mudball, the comparison test below is designed to help rate Bud as a prospect at various possible positions he may try out for in order to keep busy in his post-despot years. To keep these comparisons fair — something that will forever be lost to stats fanatics thanks to Mr. Selig’s “ignorance” of steroid use during his tension-filled tenure — he’s only stacked up against other Buds.

Which Bud would you rather go into business with, Bud Selig or Bud Bundy?
Bud Bundy, of course. Though both have been described as conniving little weasels, the Married with Children Bud still comes across as more trustworthy. Selig, remember, made his fortune primarily due to the fact that he inherited a car dealership.

Meanwhile, down on the farm...

ESPN Insider Keith Law: Rays have #3 farm system in baseball.
"The Rays have graduated a fair amount of talent in recent years but continue to come up with arms, while using their stumble last year to flip Scott Kazmir and add three solid prospects to their system. They could easily graduate three more above-average or better prospects this year if openings arise at the big league level."

Free agent rumor of the day:  Jim Thome, Chan Ho Park, Orlando Hudson
