Yup. Feels like the final nail in the coffin if they lose tonight.DeJesus Built My Hotrod said:[SIZE=13.63636302948px]The Cardinals pitching is a steaming pile of disease laden bat guano [/SIZE]
West Coast...lot of stuff happens when the East Coast is asleep, you know. Actually, he got the record in a day game as I recall, and then a pitcher broke the string.DennyDoyle'sBoil said:Wow, look at that -- 46 in a row. I don't remember hearing about that.
Good replay just now. No way the run scores if they get the tag down. Panik didn't know to get in a rundown because he doesn't know Adams stepped on the bag.DennyDoyle'sBoil said:Would have been really close. But Adams made it moot.
Yeah, his last few years you had to fear for the guy's head exploding, it was so freaking big.mauidano said:At first glance I thought Barry Bonds was singing "God Bless America". Saw the First pitch tonight. Looks about 75 pounds lighter.

I know there are likely many reasons he's slimmed down, but he's really into cycling now. It's pretty difficult to be a cyclist at the body frame he was working with at the end of his career. I know people just want to assume he just dropped the PEDs and lost the weight, and that's probably true to some extent. But he could have kept up with the body building, too. I think he's as dedicated to the cycling stuff as he was to baseball. Maybe he is a person who just needs something to challenge himself. Anyway, he just did a 60-mile race up in Santa Rosa like two weeks ago. Some friends who have seen him said he's a lot smaller than he used to be, but what mass he has is still all muscle. He's also fast: He finished 32nd out of 951 riders. All the bike people I know who've met him have said he's been delightful and asks a lot of questions about biking and times and things. Maybe he only goes biking on his good days?Al Zarilla said:Yeah, his last few years you had to fear for the guy's head exploding, it was so freaking big.
gaelgirl said:Anyway, great game from my perspective. Y'all might like this exchange regarding AJ Pierzynski's flop, as roughly transcribed by me:
Jon Miller: Ishikawa swung the bat and on the follow-through it hit Pierzynski in the helmet. And he stood up, then fell down dramatically, like he had been shot.
Mike Krukow: (dripping with disgust) Oh, jeez. What a clown. A total FLOP job. (utterance of disgust, like an UGH) Now, he did get hit in the helmet, but then he acted like... like a sniper had gotten him. I will tell you this, I've never seen a flop in baseball, but it doesn't surprise me that the first time it's with Pierzynski. Clown. What a CLOWN.
