Draft Day Seligisms

June 9th, 2009 by Melvin

MLB commissioner Allan Huber “Bud” Selig provided some unintentional laughs at draft day today. Instead of posting anything substantive about the Padres picks, here are Selig’s pronunciations that had us giggling:

Cincinnatt-a

Car-din-als

Los Angeleez

Jorge Sanchez from Chester Hill (His name is Tony Sanchez and he’s from Chestnut Hill)
