SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

I feel compelled to write this, I cannot put it off any longer. Is there anything more disgusting than talking/chewing with your mouth open? This is Beginner Manners 101. How have some people failed to pass this most infantile level of common decency, I cannot understand. Please. Eat and be merry. Just close your...

62 or Playoffs cont.

To clarify a few things: The single season home run record is still Maris’ with 61.  I can’t count the Bonds and McGwire seasons as valid because they cheated.  When you play Monopoly with your little brother and he counts 5 and lands on Boardwalk and really he was supposed to count 5 and land on Luxury Tax, you don’t just let him purchase and own Boardwalk.  You move his ass back a spot and tell him to pay up.  When you get busted cheating on a test in school, the teacher doesn’t let you keep the A that you cheated to get, they give you the letter grade that you deserver.  Cheating should not yield reward.  Bonds is not the single season Home Run Title owner, or the career one at that.  If Bud Selig wants to officially get steroids off the brain and put baseball in a position to be what it should be, what it has been, Maris and Aaron need to reclaim the records they earned, and Bonds should be stripped of the records that he stole. Yes, the record books may show Bonds on the top, but I don’t think baseball fans would put him there.  He’s a cheat, so is McGwire.  If Pujols is ever found out to be in the same boat as the two of them along with Manny,Clemens, A-Rod, Sosa,...

62 or Playoffs?

From the FOX Sports MLB Power Rankings: “Albert Pujols is making a fierce bid at hitting more HRs than the Mets. It’s 36-34 in favor of New York heading into this week.” I made a comment on my Facebook profile status about this stat and it sparked some interesting conversation.  I admitted that I’m rooting more for Albert to beat Maris’ 62 then I am for a legitimate play-off run.  Barring any major moves from Mozeliak, we have multiple bat questions with Ankiel (5 HR, .213), Duncan (5 Hr, .228), and our rotating third-baseman position, as well as at least one starting rotation position in question. I just don’t see this Cardinals team taking the best of 5 and 7 from a team like the Dodgers (most wins in MLB currently, 58), Phillies (51 wins, same as Cardinals), or the Giants starting rotation (namely All-Star National League Starter Lincecum plus Johnson, Cain, and Zito). What does seem possible, and I really mean possible, is a pure, honest run at one of the most glorified and controversial records in baseball, Roger Maris’ single season home run record of 61. How phenomenal would it be to have the Home Run Title return to St. Louis?  And this time, without the extra baggage?  And truthfully, as much as I would be beside myself to watch Albert chase this epic record, I would...
