Oh, Bud, Bud, Bud. If you only knew how much this would set East Bay baseball fans into a dither.But as has been Major League Baseballs position on the A's-to-San Jose topic, it remains a question Selig cannot answer, because Selig hasnt the power to fix it. And him dropping the F-bomb as part of his Im not going to answer your f----- question response only points that out again.Selig knows he cant answer the question, because the owners who will decide this issue one way or another havent coalesced to provide him one. And the questioner, Eric Fisher of the Sports Business Journal, knows it as well. Its not an unfair question, but it is one that is ultimately aimed at the wrong person.So Selig dropped the F-bomb on the question, not on the topic. The question only puts him in a jam, so he pungently rejected the question. The issue? Still no further along than it has been, and it wont be until the As either put a shovel in the ground, the Giants threaten lawyers, or the other 28 owners decide this is an issue worthy of their care.In other words, the news here is that Bud Selig cursed. Ooo-eee.Ray Ratto is a columnist for CSNBayArea.com
