With 47 custom shovels at the ready to commemorate the event, a small army of Burberry-clad townsfolk braved the chilly weather in downtown St Louis.  They gallantly stepped outside of their luxury automobiles long enough to break ground for the first phase of Ballpark Village (BPV).  While this day has been long in the making, [...]

Ok, I realize I am way late to the game on this one, but I was away from my computer for the better part of yesterday and it’s just too good not to have saved here for posterity. I’d give credit to other sites that have posted it, but there are already too many to [...]

So apparently I picked a bad year to completely ignore the All-Star festivities. Josh Hamilton belted 28 home runs in his first round of the Home Run Derby Monday night. Last night was more drama, as the American League beat the Nationals (yet again) 4-3, in what some are already calling the “greatest All-Star game [...]
