BUD LIGHT: A Baseball HOF voting committee member said that Selig "fell short" of making this year's ballot and will "have to wait three more years for his next chance for election to the plateau he covets." The member said that came despite “an amazing amount of pressure put on committee members." When asked if it bothered him that he did not make the ballot, Selig said, “No. When I’m done being commissioner, that’s the time to think about that.” However, baseball writer Murray Chass wrote Selig’s backers "presented a different attitude." A committee source said, "It got ugly. People were confronted. I wouldn’t have been surprised if they tried a write-in.” But another committee source wondered what if the Rodriguez grievance "were to blow up in Selig’s face." The source said, “Who knows what’s going to happen? His legacy isn’t finished being written yet" (MURRAYCHASS.com, 11/7).
