Selig’s not wild for Barry

There’s little doubt that MLB does not want Barry Bonds to break Hank Aaron’s home run record. Commissioner Bud Selig made that clear yesterday.

During a luncheon in San Francisco, Selig would not say whether he would be present if Bonds had a chance to break the record.

“That’s a matter I’ll determine at some point in the future,” Selig said. “”Let me say it, and I’m not going to say anymore. That’s it.

“It is a fact Hank Aaron and I have been friends for 50 years, close friends. When you’re the commissioner, you just don’t think about that. I have said before if and when Barry Bonds breaks that record it will be handled the same way that every other record in baseball that’s been broken was handled.”

Aaron has not said whether he will attend. If any other player was the verge of such history, you can bet Selig and Aaron would be there.

The Yankees play the Giants in San Francisco June 22-24. Wonder if Roger Clemens will give up the record-setter?
