    I'm actually glad the Dodgers didn't make it, I tired of hearing the anointment of Puig as the greatest player on the diamond. Is he good? No question, but it was a touch over the top for the baseball writers to push for him to be in the All Star game when he had been in the majors for all of 1 1/2 months.
    Puig and Gonzalez were ridiculous showboaters. I mean... great, you got a double, high-five the coach and then focus back on the game... don't stand there chest thumping and fist pumping over a double... for crying out loud.

    And dear Puig, if the ump calls you out, just go back to the bullpen like everyone else who gets called out, don't stand there and stare them down or hit the ground with your bat.

    You have to look at the what he did for the dodgers franchise.

    They weren't anywhere near finishing at the top of the division. The team was a 'fashion statement' for McCourt and his wife. They redid the stadium and raised the ticket prices to astronomical levels. He also made his wife the VP or somesuch position within the organization. When the divorce started, the team became the centerpiece for the proceedings and they were going to tear it down, had not MLB stepped in.

    MLB took control and sold the team to Johnson and his group in the offseason and they weren't picked to finish anywhere near the top.

    ------------

    They really sucked at the beginning of the season when Puig showed up and he was able to inject 'baseball' back into a franchise that really had no business being good.

    All the hoopla about him being an All Star was purely hype and BS, but the facts are that this kid can play.

    I was waiting for Puig to make the catch that sent then to the World Series, then limp thru an open door in the outfield fence, never to bee seen again.

    He's show up at his house, hug his wife and Mr Applegate would have to give him soul back?

    You will feel better when the Sox win and you don't have to hear the name Yasiel Puig for 6 months.....

    Well, maybe he will take a different position somewhere, he just said he felt like it was time to stop managing. I doubt he's done with baseball entirely!

    Last night's game had me a bit worried - did the Cardinals just forget how to play baseball suddenly? I'm not complaining - we got the win, but letting a simple pop fly drop between pitcher and catcher seems more like a Little League maneuver!

    That was an odd play, but it was an odd game defensively for them across the board.

    (At least I got to watch the whole game.......) Small consolation.

    Yep, we looked like a bunch of clowns out there last night. Kozma is a really bad player, hopefully he gets sent back to the minors, he is not good enough for major league baseball at all. Of course Waino wasn't very good last night either and our players weren't hitting also so of course we lost the game.

    Hopefully with Wacha pitching tonight it will keep the Sox at bay, we need a win tonight...Go Cards!!!

    Hope Beltran comes back soon, we really need his bat.

    They didn't kick anything last night, they couldn't cope with our young and fresh pitchers. We did the butt kicking last night, woo hoo and now on to St. Louis where there will be no DH.

    It was a good game until Breslow came on and gave the game away Still, even though we lost, I enjoy good baseball. We'll see what happens next!

    I lost the signal on my commute right after Ortiz hit the homer.

    I love listening to baseball on AM radio. Depending on the night, I either pick up a skip from WEEI in Boston directly, or from their affiliate in Hartford, or ESPN radio in Maryland, Cleveland, Chicago, or NYC, as the skips are stronger than the local radio stations.

    The only thing missing is someone to play cribbage with while listening, but I think the boys in the blue and gold cars would object to adding that into the mix.

    I am not the only one who likes listening in the car? Gotta stem from our childhood, with the games on the kitchen radio

    For confused folks, the station that carried the baseball games when we were growing up, before cable came to the hills of our small town, was only clear enough to watch when the leaves were off the trees, so most of baseball was radio only!

    I love listening to baseball on AM radio. Falls in the same category mentally as fried chicken and mac and cheese.

    Frankly, I prefer it to watching on TV most of the time, especially if it's a national broadcast team. I was actually considering getting a satellite radio system for the house for next season as WEEI's skip doesn't come in at the house, so I think I can get the NESN radio broadcast that way without dealing with the MLB blackout rules.
