But This Time They Really Mean It

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever you say, Mr. Dupuy.
Before Game 5 of the National League Championship Series in Houston, MLB President Robert DuPuy said he remains hopeful the sale of the Nationals will be ratified at the owners' meetings next month. He acknowledged that it would be better to have a new owner in place to be able to make such decisions but said the current administration is authorized to move forward.

"They're going to operate under current management until a new owner is in place," DuPuy said.

Uh huh. OK. You remain hopeful, huh? Don't you have to have a soul to hope?

At least Selig is getting off his slimy hot-dog-scarfing, rumpled rump. It's been a few months (years?), he supposes it's time he meets the new potential neighbors.

What a mess.
