Three weeks into the season and look who's in 1st Place.: That's right, the Twins and les Expos. Not exactly the plan Budlite and Co. dreamed up. It's a long season and no one expects life to imitate Disney. Can you contract two winning teams, or are we going to have to buy a team?

What's your "town hall" question for Bud Selig?: This will be the first public forum Budzilla has participated in since the threatened contraction 2 days after the World Series ended. How about the extortion of the fans in Kansas City? Submit questions March 26th after 2 P.M. ET.

Let's Go Strike!

Since we're going with the paper of record. Did anyone catch Bill Rhoden's defense of the players position?

Hey! Ever heard the story about the 3 greatest villains of the 20th century? (scroll down)

Darryl Kile found dead at 33; may he rest in peace.

Shocking news. How's this scenario sound? The Cardinals rebound from this and play into the post season. I had been pulling for an all contraction fall classic between the Expos and Twins. The Expos are a lost cause though. So how about a replay of the 1987 World Series with the Cardinals raising the trophy in late October?

The World Cup of 1958 never happened!

Ummm ... read the comments. This is an elaborate troll by the Swedish Government. Curious. I'm trying to imagine the U.S. government pulling a similar stunt involving sport.

Baseball's desperation grows - Sleepovers the latest attempt to lure fans.

Sounds just like the minor-league promotion you'd expect from Chicago's other team. I'd love to camp on the field. Is this the end of a homestand? Could be rough on the field. The local Single-A team does this sort of promotion for the Boy Scouts at no additional cost. Humph.

Washington Warriors?

I missed this one entirely. The City Paper does good work. Man, that would be great if The Danny changed the name. Ever see the Chris Rock routine on this? Equating the Redskin name to the New York Niggers. It sure raised my conciousness.

Bleacher-Bum Cone ready to start "Yankees Suck!" chant at Fenway...

Cone a Yankee? Remember the old Star Trek episode with the wandering satellite with a bad attitude? "I am Nomad". Without resorting to looking him up, I remember him as a Met, Royal, Blue Jay, Yankee, and Red Sox.The tour is cool though. I'd ask him about Cal's last game, which he started. I'd avoid the '86 series considering where I was though!

Baseball has been using a rather cool technology to help coach their umps.

This is a great idea. Why not use the tools available to check the skills of the men given the final authority on the field? I see this as a training and evaluation tool. The next step is a membership here for some of the more Eric Gregg-like umpires!

What's your "town hall" question for Bud Selig?

Ooops, bad syntax. Post questions/comments here anytime. But if you want to participate in the "town hall", MLB isn't accepting questions until after 2 P.M. ET tomorrow. Sheesh, can 'ya tell it's my 1st post?
