We nominate Elli Wohlgelernter for commissioner of the new Israel Professional Baseball League

No sooner does the mainstream news media climb on board the story of the exploding Israel Baseball League, than the story veers into an other, unexpected direction, with word-- that again, we reported exclusively, that IBl veterans (on the field and at the checkbooks) have banded together to stage a coup, announcing the formation of a new, rival Israel Professional Baseball League for 2008.

Let us go on a limb and nominate Elli Wohlgelernter for the position of commissioner of this new league.

Our Man Elli in Israel will no doubt be embarrassed and kneejerkedly refuse the nomination, but we the editors of Tabloid Baby know that no one is more knowledgeable, and no one cares more about baseball or Israel, and few have done more to set right the near-fatal mistakes of the first IBL season than this brave and experienced journalist, baseball fan, Israeli and Jew.

And no one will be a better caretaker, watchdog and leader.

We say:

Elli Wohlgelernter for baseball commissioner!

Let the chant begin as the new season dawns:

El-li! El-li! El-li!

Finger-pointing furious in deal gone sour
Magnetix becomes a major problem for its new owner

Now the legacy of that toy is haunting Mega Brands, the Canadian firm that purchased Rose Art.

Mega Brands officials allege in a lawsuit that Jeffrey and Lawrence Rosen -- the brothers who sold them Rose Art, then led that division after the merger -- didn't fix the problems with the dangerous toy in part because they didn't want to jeopardize personal multimillion-dollar payouts tied to profit targets.

Kenny Sweet Jr., a suburban Seattle toddler, died, and at least 27 other children suffered serious intestinal injuries after swallowing tiny magnets that fell out of Magnetix toys.
