John Dowd, the Pete Rose investigator, recently theorized that George Steinbrenner pressed Bud Selig for Rose's reinstatement because it would help Steinbrenner's own Hall of Fame chances. Denials everywhere.
Dowd's theory I shouldn't discuss,
But I must say I like all this fuss:
When we take George and Bud,
Drag their names through the mud,
We annoy them like they annoy us.
