Illustration for article titled Time To Play: Guess Which Phillie Ripped Bud Selig?

Generally I don't use anonymous quotes, unless it's concerning something really big, like when a member of the Phillies sees Bud Selig in the clubhouse following the Game 5 rain delay and utters the immortal line: "I wouldn't let him supervise one of my shits." Who is this mystery poet? Personally my money's on Cole Hamels, but of course that's just rank speculation. Here are some more clues, plus a second, unknown Selig basher: From the Courier-Post:

“That (expletive deleted) guy,” one pitcher said as he saw commissioner Bud Selig before walking out the back door of the clubhouse. “I wouldn’t let him supervise one of my (bowel movements). He has no clue. Not one (expletive deleted) clue.” “(Expletive deleted),” one position player said in the direction of one television pausing only for a moment before leaving. “He’s a moron. How stupid can one person be?”


Speculate away, Phillies fans. But while you're sleuthing, contemplate this: Has there been a more beleaguered baseball commissioner than Selig? I liken him these days to Alan Greenspan, the former Fed chairman who recently admitted that he screwed up royally in the years leading to the country's financial meltdown. But Foul Balls does me one better, likening our Bud to E.B. Farnum, the sweaty-palmed, rodent-like hotel manager/mayor of the HBO series Deadwood. My only regret is that Swearengen is not around to keep him in line. The Angriest Place On Earth [Courier-Post]
