If The Malek Bid Wasn't Dead Before...

Colbert King just slaughtered it. Read it.

Back in August 1959 in Illinois...
[Sherrif] Backes said the men then changed their story and said they had "caught a dog and were barbecuing it."

Police then found the skinned animal on a spit in the park. The insides of the dog had been removed, and a bottle of liquor was found on a nearby park table. Backes said the men told him they had been drinking earlier in the evening at a West Bluff tavern.

One of the men arrested in the incident, in which a dog was killed, skinned, gutted and barbecued on a spit, was Frederick V. Malek, 22, of Berwyn, Ill.


Charges against Malek were dropped when one of the other men testified that he alone did it. I don't know about you, but I don't hang around with too many dog bbqers.

King goes on to tie it to a recent problem with the SEC, which if you're really interested, you can read about at the article.

King's central question is this: Is there a continuum of behavior whose parts cannot be separated from the whole Malek?

I don't know the answer, but there are certainly enough questions to almost guarantee that Bud Selig isn't going to bother. Thank Malek for the groundwork he laid to get a team here.

But bring on the Lerners.


  • Wow. I didn't know about that. But I had heard unpleasant things about Malek's role in the Nixon administration.

    I'm with you, I don't think Bud will choose this guy, but if he does, we should be very concerned.

  • Colbert King is a former Carter administration official who, for some reason, has a hard on for anyone associate with the Nixon administration. Anything he writes about Fred Malek should be taken with a boulder of salt.

  • How does where he work change the facts as he presents them though?

    While he might not write anything favorable about him, it doesn't change the facts he lays out in the column.

    And to me, the questions he asks is a good one. Like I said... I don't know what the answer is, but I'd anticipate that Selig wouldn't want to have to answer some of those questions, especially given some of the other problems his group supposedly has (ie, the number of cooks in the kitchen).
