More BSBS

Bud Selig's BS continues.

Typically, it can take 45 to 60 days for final approval before an owner can take over operations. But during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at U.S. Cellular Field, Selig said the process should be much shorter for the Nationals.

"A lot of the vetting process that we normally go through has already been done," Selig said. "We've spent a lot of time on the eight groups and gotten a lot of information. I think it is fair to say that once someone is selected, they will go through the ownership committee on an expedited basis.

"Once we have chosen them, we need to get them in place," Selig said

Like, say, by January 04? Spring Training 04? The All-Star Break? The end of August? Before the postseason? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
