I think that Bud just wanted to make it look like he was trying, so he has some defense against small market fans.
Says the Jets fan.
The Yankees also have much tougher competition with 3 all stars added to the division.. Especially considering guys like Jeter and A fraud have very limited time left. The Yankees are an old team, and it just got harder for them..
I doubt that was the reason for the delay, but it wouldn't suprise me if they tried to influence Selig in some way....
A lot classier organizations have tried to intervene or influence in divisional opponents transactions (eg Holland trying to block the Radulov move to Nashville)
