AROUND THE WEB
So, apparently the Cardinals had some phone issues last night, meaning there are a bunch of cliché cell phone jokes to be made here (ex: can you hear me now). But isn’t it time the MLB upgraded the archaic format they use to communicate a simple pitching change? I mean, land lines and hand signals? The way we see it you have two ways to go here, ride the tech wave of the future...
ARLINGTON, Tex. Chris Carpenter deserved better.
With the World Series reduced to a best of three, Monday night's Game 5 offered the Cardinals a chance to take a 3-2 lead before the series returned to St. Louis for Game 6 Wednesday night.
And Carpenter, the former Cy Young Award winner and unchallenged ace of their rotation, did everything he could to make that happen. The...
ST. LOUIS Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols estimates he's done somewhere between 150 and 200 hit-and-runs in his career. But none has been talked about like the failed attempt that potentially changed the look of Game 5 on Monday night.

The photo was taken...

One has to remember that the movie really leaves out much of the star players on the Athletics such as Tejada and Chavez.Tonight's St. Louis lineup for Game 6:1. Rafael Furcal, SS2. Skip Schumaker, CF3. Albert Pujols, 1B4. Lance Berkman...
World Series Game 6 take two. ACTION!
It wouldn’t be late October in St. Louis without 40 degree days spiced heavily with a driving drizzle. So MLBs Director of Operations Joe Torre called off WED’s tilt and re-scheduled it for Thursday. Game 7 (if needed) was pushed back to Friday.
(Side Bar: I love Joe Torre. I do. Back in the early 90s I had a cable access show about sports...
