Found December 01, 2011 on Fox Sports Midwest:

Jay took a few minutes Thursday to chat about the World Series, how he's spent the last month and the Cardinals chances of repeating again in 2012. FSMidwest: Has it sunk in yet that you are a World Champion? Jay: I don't know. It's just been weird. I guess not, haha. Not really. Everywhere I go, people are fired up and congratulating me but I don't think it's sunk in. It was just a crazy run with how everything went, being down 2-1 to Philly and then going to Milwaukee and then the World Series and being down 3-2. I plan on having my buddies over in the next few weeks and watching all the highlights and go through all the games because I haven't really had the time to do that. FS Midwest: So you haven't seen any highlights or w...

Time Is On Their Side

The Sox are getting a lot of heat over the length of time it took them to pick a manager -- two months, for the record (and counting, we must add, since the deal is not done).It took the St. Louis Cardinals nine days to replace the most venerable manager in the game. So perhaps some criticism of the process is justified. (St. Louis also had more time to think about it beforehand...
