From ESPN's coverage of Game 1 of the ALCS:
Twins players, especially Doug Mientkiewicz, have said their inspiration is to have Selig hand them the World Series trophy later this month.
"If I was their Knute Rockne, then they owe me something for that," the baseball commissioner said, citing the Notre Dame football coach of the 1920s who was famous for motivating players.
How about a nice kick up the bum? I can think of a few million Minnesotans who would love to give him one - free of charge - for trying to wipe out the Twins and give his old friend Carl Pohlad a big check in return.

I've got something for Mr. Selig...
Honestly, Minnesota is where they're at because they are a good team, a good team that didn't need an super sized salary to go out there and play solid baseball and win games.
I'm biased because I'm a Twins fan (mostly through my mother, my dad likes sports but not specific teams), born and raised in Minnesota (though currently living in Wisconsin), but nothing would make me happier than to see Bud be so smug about getting rid of them this season, only to have himself hand over that trophy to the Twins this month.

I have to say this, just because it needs to be said.
Bud Selig gets TOO much blame for the bad things and not ENOUGH credit for the good things that happen in baseball.
I'm not saying he's a good commissioner or anything, but they way he's portrayed is just ridiculous. Anything that goes bad gets blamed on him (All-Star Game...manager's faults, period) and anything good that happens, they find some way to give credit to someone else.
