THE BOSS CONTINUES TO BACK SELIG/BEESTON TICKET

          Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner told Murray Chass of
     the N.Y. TIMES that MLB's search for commissioner is "a
     charade.  We don't need it."  Steinbrenner advocates Acting
     Commissioner Bud Selig and MLB COO Paul Beeston to remain in
     the top two spots.  Steinbrenner said, "Beeston can't want
     to stay much longer.  I don't want to lose him.  He's great
     for the job."  Steinbrenner, on Selig becoming MLB's CEO
     while maintaining ownership of the Brewers: "That wouldn't
     bother me at all.  He's the most impartial guy in the world
     when it comes to his team.  Put it in the hands of Selig and
     Beeston and let's get on with it.  Forget this phony
     commissioner search" (N.Y. TIMES, 2/22).
