The baseball commissioner put plenty of blame on himself for whiffing on steroids back in the 1990s, and the Wednesday hearings are yet another reminder of his failures. In fact, the spectacle could wind up stamping Selig's legacy as the steroid commish. The timing of the probe hurts him too, as it coincides with pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training. Baseball wishes we were celebrating the start of the season, not trying to solve a Roger Clemens whodunit. Not that any of this strife affects his job status. With baseball's economy booming, Selig, 73, recently signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him on the job through 2012.
