Red Sox Dynasty Book

I think someone is jumping the gun with this one:

Dynasty: The Inside Story of How the Red Sox Became a Baseball Powerhouse by Tony Massarotti

How about this review on Amazon:

“Red Sox Nation comes alive in this thoughtful and penetrating look at one of the most famous teams in the country by an expert journalist who was there every step of the way.”---Allan H. (Bud) Selig, Commissioner of Baseball

There's just something wrong about all of this.

Why on earth is Bud Selig, the commissioner of baseball, praising a book about one of the 30 ballclubs? Couldn't that be perceived as violating the impartiality that is supposed to come with the territory of his job?

God, I can't stand Bud Selig. He's a crook.

If any person in MLB should be the target of a grand jury, it's Bud.

Massarotti could be the single biggest homer in all of sports journalism. I bet he was crying in his Patriots cereal bowl on Super Bowl sunday. His columns for most of the NFL season consisted of ________ (insert Patriots player or coach) is the best EVAH!!!!
