Bud Selig wrote both clubs — and Hollywood Reporter has the letter — warning them that if they sue over this they’re in DEEP TROUBLE suggesting that they may have “the most severe sanctions” leveled against them if they do...
...Oh, and those “most severe sanctions” Selig threatened the O’s and Nats with? Those include the sorts of sanctions that cost Frank McCourt ownership of the Dodgers. Of course McCourt was a wounded animal at the time. Would Selig dare try to go after Peter Angelos or the Lerners like that?
Not that I think MLB would try to take the Orioles away...what other sanctions would there be?
he would have freed us a long time ago instead of fighting tooth and nail to keep us tied down in his chains.
it is virtually impossible to challenge the merits of an arbitration decision.
Now who's being laughable?
If you were talking about a federal arbitration panel you'd be correct. But this arbitration panel was 3 other team owners of Bud's choosing. I'm pretty sure Angelos knows more about the law than either of us.
Of course, he can object to the way they conducted things, but that's tough. He has to show corruption, fraud, or bias.
Right. Isn't the argument that Selig gave the Nats $25M out of his slush fund on the understanding that they'd pay him back once the arbitrator ruled in the Nats favor?
That does seem to be one of the incoherent allegations out there, but the issue is the arbitrators, not Selig.
