    Re: Chipper Jones' retiring...

    There's a bar in downtown Atlanta that a lot of the Braves players frequent, and in honor of Chipper's retirement they are renaming the bar to "Chipper's Bar and Music Hall", and MY BOYFRIEND gets to design the bar's new logo!! So proud of him

    I heard on the news about Brandon McCarthy, who pitches for the Oakland A's but used to pitch for the White Sox in 2005 and 2006. He was struck in the head by a batted ball, which caused a skull fracture and bleeding inside his head. From what they said, it sounded like they didn't think he was hurt that badly at first; but then it became more apparent that something was wrong. He needed surgery to take the pressure off his brain. That is scary. I hope he comes through with flying colors.

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    You quoted me too fast before I could edit it with the new name lol! Since we live in St. Louis I'm not sure we'll be able to get a pic but maybe they'll post something on facebook! It's always neat seeing his artwork popping up on facebook (he does a lot of work for bands and music festivals, did work for the St. Louis Blues last season and had stuff up on Billboards around StL, etc) so I'll see if I can find something when it's done

    Big Congratulations to Mr. Cabrera!

    And thank goodness this dismal season for the Red Sox is over, although I am sure the drama will continue!

    Ohhhhh, Cubbies. All those big changes at the top, and the outcome was pretty much the same in the end.

    And White Sox ... you hung on until the very end. It was a nail-biter September for sure!

    Congratulations to Miguel Cabrera, winning the batting Triple Crown for the first time since the Red Sox's own Carl Yastrzemski (sp!)

    Well the Cards are still in it so far. We got the Wild Card and play Atlanta Friday night. As you know, it's a must win game for us, Go Cards, let's get to the NLDS.

    Seeing as my beleaguered Red Sox are out (thank goodness) for the season, I will root for your red birdies!

    Surprise, Surprise

    Bobby V is out.

    I are shocked.

    The search should be simple. Call Terry Francona and ask what it would take to get him back.

    /end search.

    the braves got jobbed.

    I wonder if that was a replacement umpire.

    Thanks Chipper.

    Everyone keeps blaming the "bad call" for the Braves' loss. Even without the "bad call", they had plenty of opportunities to recover and tie (or win) the game... but didn't. They had errors left and right. But fact is the Cardinals just played a better game tonight.

    In the future though if they're going to have a wild card playoff they really should make it the best of 3 games.

    (Not saying that's what you're saying, Richard, just making a comment in general. I get it that people are upset that they lost, but they did not lose due to one ump's bad call).

    The bad call wasn't the sole cause for the loss, however, the MLB appeals process is a joke.

    Frankly, the additional wild card team is a bad idea, because if there's anything more than a 1 game playoff for the wild card teams, you're going to wind up with baseball in december, and NO playoff series should be a single game.
