Picture "Minor League Guy" is on Third
"Minor League Guy" should really help the Cardinals replace "Albert Pujols".
Maybe if the Angels got David Freese.
"What a dick," read a statement from the Cardinals in its entirety.
Pujols was drafted in the 13th Round of the 1999 Draft by the Cardinals and became a St. Louis fixture both on and off the field in 2001. He was known and loved in the community as much for his charity work as for his tape-measure home runs.
"Fk that guy," said St. Louis mayor Francis Slay.
Pujols on Thursday agreed to a 10-year, $254 million with the Anaheim Angels, ending his 11-year career with the Cardinals.
"I hope his plane explodes flying out there," said new Cardinals manager Mike Matheny.
She probably thinks Tony LaRussa is hot.
Cricket with an American accent is still incredibly boring, unfortunately.
I guess they just really like Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.
"There were two outs and it was David Murphy's spot in the lineup, but I looked up and there was A-Rod, in his full Yankees uniform, dug in and the first pitch was on the way," said Rangers manager Ron Washington. "Before I could say anything, he had taken it for a strike. By then it was too late."
Rodriguez took the next pitch inside for a ball. He then swung and missed badly on the third offering, a slider, from St. Louis closer Jason Motte. The fourth pitch, a fastball on the outside corner, was called strike three as Rodriguez stood there with his bat on his shoulder.
"I happened to be in the area and it just felt natural for me to be up as the potential final out of a series," said Rodriguez. "So when they got two outs, I stepped in there. My hope is that the more experience I get in these situations, the less I'll strike out. It wasn't meant to be tonight, though."

It's okay. His entire body is made of taffy.
Sweet playoff beard.
Noted animal lover LaRussa would likely employ baseball's first dog-coach.
