All-Stars Among Us Interruptis

There. Now that the American League has its rightful lead with only six outs to go, let's take a moment to examine something important. You know where.

During some pre-bedtime InterWebs browsing, I stumbled across this. It's short, sweet, and to the point. That is, the commissioner has spoken, if only briefly, regarding one Charles P. Hustle. Quoth Allan H. "Bud" Selig:

"'(Pete Rose's application for reinstatement -- which dates back to September 1999) is under review,' Selig said Tuesday during a question-and-answer session with the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. 'He did, as you know, accept voluntarily a lifetime suspension from Bart Giamatti, and there really isn’t much more I can say about that. I did agree to review it. It is under review. We do spend some time discussing it. But it’s not I think appropriate for me to say any more.'”

Maybe, just maybe, after a two-year hiatus, it's time to fire up the Bank Red Machine again. We'll keep you posted should any Seligears be greased. Now back to the bottom of the eighth.
