Bud Selig is an embarrassment to baseball

Rewrite the record book first -- ask questions later.
Especially if it helps your good buddy Hank.
Selig said he would look into the possibility of reinstating Hank Aaron — a personal friend — as No. 1 on the all-time home run list and attach asterisks or some other note to the records of players involved in steroids use.

Barry Bonds, who is widely suspected of using performance-enhancing drugs, is baseball's all-time home run leader with 762. Aaron has 755.

If you're going to do this, why stop with Bonds home run record? What about his 2539 career walks (first all time)? I'm sure those PEDs helped his batting eye, so it's high time to reinstate Rickey Henderson as the all-time walks leader!
