Three Up, Three Down

Just like A.J. Burnett in a Pirates uni, this is going to be ugly, moan-inducing and might even warrant a trip straight to the DL.

New MLB Playoff Format

In short, I like it.  It emphasizes winning the division, makes trade deadline trades more suspect and guarantees drama as we enter the postseason.  The only thing I can think of that would make this arrangement better is to skip the one game playoff and force each wild card team’s manager to do a keg stand before engaging in a last-man-standing no-holds-barred boxing tournament.  My money is on Ron Washington.  Cocaine makes ya crrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaazzzyyy!

Bigots Leading the Republican Party

Whether it’s the Pennsylvanian Taliban or the Ditto Führer of Ignorance himself , I’m getting quite tired of seeing Abe Lincoln’s party fall victim to mass idiocy.  But I found something that will really cause ’em to scratch their heads:

Yadier Molina: Five More Years

Halle-FRACKIN-lujah!!!  Seriously, I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this makes me.  To those outside of the St. Louis Cardinals family, such jubliation may not seem warranted, but let me assure you: this is a grand, grand deal for all involved.  Say what you will about Albert’s tenure, Yadier Molina is the absolute heart and soul of the St. Louis Cardinals.  And everyone’s happy now.  Yadi’s happy.  Front office is happy.  The fans are happy.

Happy Saturday!



  1. This is a very simple game...

    Congrats on the Yadier contract! I’m glad he stayed. Jubilate away. Keeping a player like that is cause for serious celebration for any team.
    Poor old A.J. What with all the bad luck (self-created and spontaneously occurring) he kind of seems like what happened when Charlie Brown grew up…after incurring significant head trauma from Lucy’s football antics…and after the move from playing football with Lucy to dating her in college knocked a lot of the sweetness out of him. Because if you thought she played head games with the football…

    Thanks, Kristen. Sorry to keep him from the Angels, but we needed a break with this one 😉 Also, I didn’t know Charlie Brown grew up! And what is this dating Lucy nonsense?!? What’s next, no Santa Claus? LOL
