7 Inning Game

by on January 19, 2011 · 7 comments

No, I’m not suggesting that MLB shorten the game to 7 innings.  That would be plain silly, and it would leave less time for the consumption of ballpark food.  If anything, I’m a proponent of having more baseball on a given night as opposed to less.  No, I’m simply suggesting that the Cardinals could practically turn some [...]

It’s still difficult for me to determine exactly when, by watching the various videos of the incident, the young man was tasered, but the lead photo at Deadspin makes it clear that it actually happened. Wonder if a person that would run onto the [...]

Ah, it feels good to write a “day-after-game” post again. Who enjoys having baseball back? Cardinals 11, Reds 6 What injuries? Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina both homered, Pujols twice and Molina’s a grand slam, in yesterday’s game.  Seems they’re feeling alright, eh? Skip struggles.

While not something I originally planned on including today, it is important for all of us here at PH8 to express our condolences to the Walters family. We were fortunate to get to know P.J. while interviewing him on UCB Radio, and I look forward to watching him overcome this tragedy and again honor his [...]
