A tie will be played in his honor in all 30 MLB parks. Stick around for the post-game shrugging contest. One lucky fan will win a used car at each game; one lucky bald fan will win a toupee'.
Why would Selig need a loan? Surely he could just steal more money from the Yankees for his slush fund, if it ever ran dry.
Aren't Commissioners booed in every sport? I don't think baseball would be much different. I don't think people think "hey there's the great guy that instituted interleague play," they think "hey, there's an authority figure that is probably screwing my teams somehow."

How was Bud responsible for the Astros ownership situation and is it necessarily a fiasco or a team rebuilding?
I don't think Bud is as hated by the general baseball fan population as he is here.
I honestly don't know much more about it other than what I've read here, but there were stories that the Crane group was drastically undercapitalized. You'd think that'd be the first thing they'd want to avoid in a new owner.
