Rangers tie it up on a great game by Holland and a 3 run blast by Napoli. Now it starts to get really interesting.

Cards refuse to win last night and hand one to the Rangers. 2 to get 1.

Did you heard LaRussa explaining the bizarre 8th inning pitching moves? Hard to believe that kind of thing can happen in the World Series. Strange.

http://espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs/2011/story/_/id/7145762/tony-la-russa-bad-c all

Other than that, it was a great game (and looked even better every time I switched over to MNF).

Going down to see game 6 - wish it was the Cardinals with the chance to clinch..... 80% chance of rain tomorrow - a rainout would really screw with hotel reservations.........


Can't win when you strand that many runners.....

From an extremely casual & infrequent baseball watcher - what is the significance of the rope like neckwear without which you can't pitch in the big leagues ? Just curious....

Well Epstein is already cleaning house in the Clubs front office. Can't wait till the Mike Quade "era" is over. Granted he had some bad pieces to work with but man he made so many bad moves last season.

I think Sandberg will get the manager's job.

He's great, but Ted Williams is regarded as the greatest hitter ever.

Check these stats: (sorry - couldn't get them to cut and paste)

http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/w/willite01.shtml

Keep in mind that he missed almost FIVE years due to military service, in his prime. Had he not, he would own EVERY hitting stat known to man.

Typical revisionist history by today's generation who think nothing existed before yesterday.....*harumph*

And yes, Lee, I know you'll say he was an A-hole. Irrelevant.

Quade NEVER should have been a Major League manager to begin with. And after he DIDN'T walk Pujols who then hit a game-winning walkoff homer the night AFTER he pitched to him and he beat the Cubs, he should have been fired on the spot. The guy is an idiot - he never moved from that spot in the dugout ALL SEASON.

That said, it would have been a mistake to hire Sandberg before they canned Hendry's worthless ass. There would have been WAY too much pressure on Sandberg to win with the dogsh!t roster that is Hendry's pathetic legacy. Better to bring in a clueless moron like Quade to take the fall until they could get a REAL GM who knew what he was doing.

Willie Mays missed 266 games also due to military service. no telling how many more home runs, hits, rbi he would have had.

He never hit .406, Pete. And nobody else has hit .400 since.

I would say that Willie was the greatest ALL-AROUND player ever. But the consensus is that Williams was the best pure hitter who ever lived.

BTW, I picked up a copy of Willie Mays' autobiography at a library sale for like 50 cents - it was brand new, looked like it had never been read, and when I opened it up - he had signed it. Pretty cool.

And 266 games = less than 2 full seasons....

5 seasons at 154 games per season = 770 games. So even he missed just half of the fifith season, he would have missed over 693 games, about 2 1/2 times the number of games Willie missed. Since Willie hit 660 HRs and Wiliams hit 521 and Williams averaged over 27 HRs for his career and hit 36 the year before he went into the service and hit 38 the year he returned - an amazing feat - I think its a pretty safe bet he would have hit close to 700 HRs had he not had his career interrupted.

Just my opinion.

That was the point of all my posts, when a revisionist claimed that Albert Pujols "could be the best hitter ever."

My goodness. It is all subjective. Sorry, you can't really say anyone is/was the best player/hitter/starter/closer and prove it per se. We all see things differently.

None of us ever saw Babe Ruth or DiMaggio for example play. Christy Mathewson? Walter Johnson?

I was nudging ya....

But people in the "younger generation" today tend to think that only things that happened within their lifetime have validity or can be great. They have no awareness whatsoever of the past.

When I was a kid I read EVERYTHING I could get my hands on about baseball, football and almost every other sport and had a respect and appreciation of the past. I didn't have this narcissistic, egocentric view that only things that had happened while I was on the earth mattered.

I've had people that should know better - Bear fans - tell me that Dick Butkus wouldn't even be able to play in the NFL today. Of that Mike Singletary would never have made it to the NFL. Complete and total BS.

I never said you were wrong, Lee - after all, like you said, it's only an opinion. But I think I supported my argument pretty well.

Rich -

I apologize if I have posted this before but when I was about 10 years old I went to a Tigers game with my Grampa and my great uncle. My great uncle had a friend (generation ahead of them) that went with us to the game and on the way home he told me about seeing Ty Cobb.

As much as I had read about Cobb being a terrible person I was really shocked and amazed. And kinda impressed just due to the historical significance. Even at that age I felt that way.
