Not The News – Volume XIII

ASG 2012

Cardinals attempt to rock the vote by swaying voters using rather old-fashioned tactics that involve sensory overload of some kind.  In this case, they have started the “Vote to send Cardinals to All-Star Game” ad campaign with a questionable list of choices.  According to this screenshot taken from the website just a few days ago, the Cardinals want you to consider voting for Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman, and Yadier Molina.  It would seem that the great starts of Carlos Beltran and Jon Jay are being overlooked in favor of some no-name guy the Cardinals are pushing for this time around.  Interesting approach to getting Molina’s name out there to say the least.  We’ll see if this works.

Matheny in Road House

It took a while to make the connection.  Matheny finally tipped his hand when asked about baseball injuries when he suggested that “pain don’t hurt”.  Really, it was a shame that we all missed the most obvious clue which was his jersey number.  Matheny wears “22” which represents the “Double Deuce”.


3 Amigos Ride Again

Current Cardinals Allen Craig, Daniel Descalso, and Jon Jay star in the “3 Amigos Ride Again for the First Time” which may or may not be fit for DVD.  For sure nobody wants it on Blu-Ray.

The David Freese and Hunky Holliday iPhone lock screen with the Cardinals June Schedule is available.  Enjoy this right-clicker.  (If you have a problem with the image on this page, try this link.)

Matt "Jaws" Adams

Matt Adams appears ready to take down Kobayashi at Nathan’s again this year.  And to think you were all wondering how Adams kept in shape for baseball season.

Cardinals fan since I could hold a fishing pole steady. Accidental blogger. Opinionated. I could care less about what you think of me. Constantly confounded, bemused, and confuzzled (ie I'm a pc and a mac). I'm an IT infrastructure analyst with a penchant for breaking tech toys. I ate a sabermetric primer for breakfast. I love playing "All-powerful GM of MLB". The 2010 Cardinals represented a good, practical definition "cognitive dissonance". The 2011 version got by on duct tape and a prayer, and I'm fine with that. They just need new tape for #12 in 12.

Won’t work on me. Thanks to Matt Adams, my heart no longer has any room in it for anyone else, no matter how awesome a catcher they may be.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to finish my auto-voter bot program to spam Adams into the All Star Game.

It really saddens me that you have an auto-voter bot and haven’t shared it with the rest of us.
