Gambadoro does something even rarer and perhaps, courageous, than defend baseball commisioner Bud Selig's new steroid policy. He even says a few good words about Selig's overall stewardship of the game, even while acknowledging the commish's mistakes:
...not everything Selig has done has been bad. The addition of the wild card may be his biggest and best contribution to the sport. And inter-league play, while losing some of its luster, continued to be a success. Not allowing con artist Pete Rose back in baseball shows he really does care more about the sport than his own image, and I applaud him for doing what is right with the all-time hit king and that's keeping him out of the Hall of Fame. But what Selig was able to accomplish on Thursday - albeit with the help of a suddenly caring Players Association - is as important as anything he has done as commissioner. He has helped to bring back the integrity of the game by fighting hard to get Major League Baseball a stricter steroid testing policy.Interesting slant on things.
