Jason at IIATMS has an excellent post exposing just how differently Bud Selig, and by extension Major League Baseball, are treating the Mark McGwire business than they treated the Alex Rodriguez business.
My take: Rodriguez and his agent and his contract bug Selig on some primal level, so it’s easy for him to slip into tut-tut mode when he’s involved. McGwire, however, saved Selig’s bacon by helping everyone forget that Selig’s failed bust-the-union gambit cost America a World Series a few years earlier, so he’ll always have a warm place in his heart for Big Mac.
