10:24 AM ET 10.27 | Alex Rodriguez and his legal dream team have portrayed Bud Selig and Major League Baseball as having conducted a "witch hunt" against the Yankee slugger in connection with the Biogenesis doping scandal and Selig's historic 211-game ban he gave A-Rod, but the baseball commissioner said Saturday that he is "very comfortable" with the way the matter has been handled by COO Rob Manfred and MLB's Department of Investigations. "I'm very comfortable with that. Look, I'm not a lawyer in that area. I'm not a lawyer altogether. But our people, and I know it's now been written over and over again, I'm very comfortable with what they did and how they did it," Selig told reporters at Busch Stadium in St. Louis before Game 3 of the World Series and after he presented Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran with the Roberto Clemente Award. "I've been in baseball now 50 years. I thought I had seen everything, but apparently I hadn't."

Fans hate him. Owners love him because they are making more money than they ever dreamed of making. Owners will never regret hiring Bud.
