MLB Commissioner Bud Selig just had his midseason “state of baseball” presser prior to tonight’s All Star Game. He fielded numerous questions about expanded instant replay (not yet), the Mitchell Report (feel good about it), and TV blackouts (working on it). As for the A’s:
Selig says A’s/Giants situation is in his hands. “Both clubs need to answer a lot of questions for us.”

Wolff and Baer have said it’s in commissioner’s hands, and Selig just agreed. — John Shea (@JohnSheaHey) July 10, 2012
I asked Selig what the main hangup is with A’s stadium issue and he said “The main hangup is we don’t have the answers yet.”

There’s a bottle of Balvenie DoubleWood sitting across from me as I write this, and even though it’s early it’s looking really good right about now.
