No pinkslip for Bud

Major League Baseball will continue to follow Bud Selig's leadership as it digs out from under the steroids scandal that happened on Selig's watch.

According to a highly placed MLB source, Selig will have his contract extended for three years at an owners meeting on Thursday. His contract had been set to expire in 2009 but now will extend through 2012.

well i hope that he can figure out a way to be able to get this under control. He does alot of great thigns for baseball, this is one that he has to work on a bit to make sure that players are clean with the sport. Baseball is losing alot of fans becuase of this, and i hope that he will take the time to find a way to get things handled.

Selig has been about as succesful in dealing with steroids as he has been with contracting a certain Minnesota franchise. There's just something about the guy that hits me the wrong way. Unless there are some miraculous changes in the next couple years, Selig's tenure will be one of the most embarasing in pro sports history.

I totally agree with you. From ending the All-Star game a few years ago, not letting Pete Rose into the HOF after admitting to gambling (wasn't that the deal?) to all the money Pohlad loaned him. Another thing that always rubbed me the wrong way with Selig was the fact he owned a franchise while being in office- tremendous conflict of interest. One of his first orders of business was switching the Brewers to the NL, making the divisions uneven.

There is another thing in baseball that needs changing. Ever since he was put in office I've seen nothing done. ESPN says "All the coaches love him." How can you? He does nothing. Maybe thats why they like him. He doesn't investigate the roids and the owners are getting bigger guys. I don't know? Something needs to be done.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
