"To see that they're No. 29, I think it's inexcusable," Selig said at a news conference. "Nobody can defend that."
If he feels that way about the Rays, what must he think of the Indians?
The Rays, after all, are ranked 29th in attendance with an average of 20,582 per game.
At No. 30, they're dead-last, averaging just 19,256.
And a nice Chianti?
If the Food Network is looking for a new face, they might want to consider Mike Tyson. He is, it seems, an ear connoisseur.
Andy Cohen, host of "Watch What Happens: Live" recently asked Tyson what an ear tastes like.
Tyson, who bit Evander Holyfield's ear during a 1997 heavyweight bout, gave Cohen — you'll excuse the pun — an earful.
"That depends. It depends on which ear that you bite," Tyson replied. "Since it was Holyfield's ear, and it didn't have none of that Holyfield hot sauce on it, it was not too tasty."
Holyfield, for those who don't know, endorses "Real Deal BBQ Sauce."
Tyson said if the sauce had been on Holyfield's ear it "would have been a delicacy."
Date to remember
On this date in 1949, history was made as Larry Doby of the Cleveland Indians and Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe of the Brooklyn Dodgers became the first black players to appear in an All-Star game. The AL won, 11-7 at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn.n
