Now you sound like a paranoid Red Sox fan. Sure, Selig is compromised, but this trade is the most minor of conflicts (see: Montreal Expos). The D-Backs traded only one of the Schilling deal players (de la Rosa) for Sexson today, along with 5 others, so it’s awfully hard to cry foul. Selig is in a terrible position, you won’t get an argument from me on that one, but the Schilling/Sox deal is no indication of that. The key thread in the deal is Steinbrenner poaching Wells, that’s your answer, and Bud Selig doesn’t have to do a damn thing to remind Garagiola, Jr., or Colangelo about that. Stop pointing fingers elsewhere.
