I was in the box that day and later that night, wearing a surgical mask as the game ensued, with the Braves defeating the Cardinals.
You don't belong in the upper deck, as good a fan as you seem to be. However, you have saved yourself some angst by not being in the stands for much or any of this month.
This vessel hasn't gone down yet. It's listing.
Before we have this Hall of Fame discussion involving Rose, he has to be taken off the banned list by Major League Baseball. I would consider him only as a player, because he wasn't a very good manager. As for Simpson, I'm not part of that process.
There seems to be more evidence that Bonds and Clemens were involved in PEDs than Ortiz might have been. Don't have to worry about this for a couple of more years yet.
I would take Whitey for one game and can't decide between Tony and Whitey for a season. Both won World Series. Best GM? Bing Devine was a big part of 1960s success even though he wasn't the general manager during the World Series, Second place would go to Herzog, who as GM, or quasi GM, helped build three pennant winners.
Judging by the vote totals through the years, they're perceived about the same.
I suspect there might be one, but I don't know.
By the same token, you seem to think the 6-16 achieved with the same players is not a fluke. Can't have it both ways.
Who can say that it isn't?
I can recall that George Brett seemed to enjoy the moment.
Flaherty has a lot of Bob Gibson and Chris Carpenter in him. Someday, soon, this will come to fruition.
The 2004 club won 105 games and might have contested for the World Series if Carpenter hadn't been hurt. There was a lot of star power on tht team then although some of it was in the declining stages,. You'll note that this was a veteran team, except for Molina and these days there are so many good younger players, you rarely can win with an all-veteran roster.
Billy unfortunately liked to mix it up a little too much at night and his managerial stints, while many, were brief.
They've had to adjust their sights with a couple of players, notably Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes, both of whom they thought in February might be in their rotation now but aren't because of injury. They have discerned their starting pitching isn't good enough now and will try internal options first and then go externally.
Minnesota's will remain low because the rest of its division stinks and they play 76 games inside the division.
I would be astonished if there weren't several celebrations.
You rarely see a reliever go longer than 30 pitches on any night, so yes, that is a strong consideration, especially if a pitcher is used on consecutive nights.
Everywhere but here. People who were around in those years know how understatedly great he was. He's in the Cardinal Hall of Fame.
Not having Daniel Descalso or Greg Garcia, fine fellows and playes, isn't the reason they are where they are. Besides, Jedd Gyorko makes far more than both of them as a backup infielder, so there has been no shortage of expenditure for that position.
Wow! What will happen if the Cardinals dare fall under .500?
