Bud Selig

Armando Benitez has cursed us all, and the founder of Benitez Has Cursed Us, David Schubert, wants you all to stand up and recognize, yo.  If you think that sentence makes no sense, then you should try following the stream of semi-consciousness that is Schube’s Twitter feed.  He’s a sucker for misspelled words and ignorance, [...]

MLB absolutely despises, detests, and hates Cardinal Nation.  Even that might not explain the completely irrational decision to schedule game 3 of the NLDS between the Cardinals and Nationals at 1:07 pm (ET) on Wednesday.  On MLB Network.  Maybe they are concerned about all the millions of baseball fans in the Czech Republic and Oman [...]

Calculating the “magic number” for playoff contenders was so very simple just a few decades ago.  Do the math for 2 divisions in the NL, do it for the 2 divisions in the AL, and “voila!” you were done.  Then Bud Selig came along and ruined the whole thing.  Okay, Emperor Bud does not deserve [...]

The latest kerfuffle in baseball involves the suggestion that MLB could allow corporate sponsorships of teams, and those sponsors would be allowed to place logos on uniforms.  While the idea most certainly has some appeal for the Emperor of the Dark Force, Bud Selig, it sounds like a horrible idea to most rationale people.  Would [...]

Do you like the Cardinals?  Do you like music?  Do you like free stuff? If you answered “yes” to all 3 of the above questions, then you should probably stop talking to websites.  After you stop talking to the interwebz, then consider how cool it would be to win free music performed by a big [...]

Let’s just dispense with the pleasantries and list them all here, shall we? This way, Cards fans have a repository to come back to game after game, without having to continue to come up with new reasons for a lost season. In no particular order: Moths Ryan Franklin Takashi Saito Rob Drake Tony Rasmus Dan [...]

No Angry Birds?

Cardinals vs Reds.  Chris Carpenter vs Johnny Cueto.  The July 4th game had all the media hype of a WWE event.  What did fans see?  A pitcher’s duel that ended 1-0.  Nobody got accidentally brushed back a little harder than usual.  Nobody was drilled in the ribs.  Heck, the only pitch close to the batter’s box [...]

Let’s call a spade a spade for just once and admit that Bud Selig is after the Dodgers.  Sure, he’s going after the team under the guise that an ownership transfer is in the best interest of baseball.  That one is right up there with oceanfront property in Arizona and a bridge I’d like to [...]

If It Ain’t Broke…

…Don’t Fix It!  Also, don’t add another round to the playoffs, either.  Oh, I don’t just sit around the #ManCave all winter long trying to dream up ways to eat large burritos with plastic sporks.  I also concern myself with the national pastime and the different ways people propose meddling with it.  Consider the possibility [...]

The Imperfect Name

by on February 1, 2011 · 1 comment

I detest the phrase “perfect game”, and I think it should be removed from the baseball vernacular for good.  Why?  In it’s current form, it’s used to denote a winning effort that lasts a minimum of nine innings in which no opponent reaches base.  Basically, a “perfect game” is a “no-hitter” + “shutout” + “walk free” [...]
