Funny, I noticed today, the 2 best teams in the National League, also have the 2 best records. The Phillies and the Cardinals. How are the rest of the teams of interest doing?????
Yankees? Their in 2nd place. Still trailing a team with about a tenth of their payroll. How 'bout those Cubbies???? Near familiar territory (the bottom of their division) Pirates?? See the same answer as above. Royals?? Last place. Life is good!!! Cardinals are in 1st...Cubs and Pirates only have to leap frog the Stros to get in the basement. Golf tournament this weekend. SDC next week. Had a juicy bar-b-qued sirloin for supper. Yep, life is good. Think I'll turn the tube on, get a tooth pick, and watch the Cardinals. How's your team doing?
Hmmm....can we talk shopping instead?!
I wouldn't be too proud of the games against the Pirates Herby. We handed those to you
Pretty bad fundamental baseball. Still we had you worried in the first game didn't we LOL
The Pirates have some good young talent, so don't be surprised if I get my trusty old Pirates sweeping the Cards broom photo out of storage later this year
i am with you herby go cardinals i will have to pull for the memphis redbirds as i live in memphis tn.courtney i hope you were talking about shopping for cardinals gear. i will see rhonda in silver dollar city on the 18th i gotta go watch the cardinals julia become a cardinal
Whitey & Linda
Oh I've got an idea! Let's talk football! GEAUX SAINTS!!
This is the one time I've got a sports team that I'm not ashamed to be a fan of.
The Yanks have a 21-10 Record and the Cards have a 20-13 Record and you bring up second Place? We are gonna open a Can on Detroit tonight with a Double Header Spankin'! Mike G.
Well Julie....considering that the Bucks sweep the Reds in mid-April, We're hopeing that will win again today (So far 4-0 Reds, right now....we're playin' a business man's special in Pitts. today). Hopefully we'll sweep this time!! Now if we can figure out how to get Albert Pouls (Cardinal's 1st baseman) out, we might have a chance!! We play the Cardinals this coming weekend, and I'm going to Sunday's game.
All is well here, as Phillies have hit their stride again. Pitching starting to snap into shape and our first baseman is signed for many years in the future!!!
Ah yes, my lil' buddy from the left coast magically appears. Does anybody but you watch the NBA? Those athletes can't shoot, can't dribble, or gaurd anyone. It's slama jama, after you violate the rules by taking 10 steps without putting the ball on the floor. It's not a foul unless you decapitate someone. It's a joke!!! Might as well put the Globetrotters on TV. I'd much rather watch them. At least they will entertain you, and make you laugh.
Golf is not something I would expect you to understand or watch. It's a gentlemans sport. The Big 10???? Well, remember a few months ago when I mentioned they were thinking of expanding, and Mizzou was one of the teams they wanted? You said I was crazy....Have you been hearing anything lately? I hope it doesn't happen. I would hate for Mizzou to take a step backwards. But, rumors are Mizzou, Notre Dame, possibly Nebraska and Rutgers are headed the Big 10's way starting in 2012 to legitimize that conference. Hopefully it's only a rumor!!!! Uncle, it pains me to admit that the Phillies took 2 out of 3 from my beloved Cardinals, but they did. There's no question the Phils and the Cards are the 2 best teams in the Senior circuit. If all goes according to plan, they will meet in the NLCS, to see who plays the Rays in the WS. (Garlock will love that last statement...LOL) Daryl, There is no answer for Sir Albert. Teams have been trying to figure that out for 10 years. He's in a bit of a funk right now, but look out when he gets it dialed in. He's by far the best baseball player in the majors. Go Cardinals!!!!!
Hmmmm Albert struck out alot against a lowly Pirates pitching staff
I thought I would enlighten you with some Facts. The NY Yankee's can pay ther Players more money because they Charge more to get in to see there Game's. They also make more money on TV with the YES Network than other Teams. Everything also costs more in NYC. There are only two places I have paid more the $8.00 for a Cheeseburger---NYC and the Artic Circle on a Caribou Hunt. Rhonda Vincent and the Northern Lights were both worth it! Mike G.
Now I know why property taxes are so high in NY city and state. I remember the day Ozzie Smith signed a million dollar contract. I said it then, and I'll say it now, no baseball player is worth that kind of money.
Need a salary cap of 50 million per team. Ticket prices would drop. Hot dogs would be cheaper. Parking would be free. And NY property taxes would fall in line with N'eastern Missouri. LOL We could probably afford our own health care....wooops did I say that????????
I intended to Post the Link to MLB Saleries, but I forget. So, here they are. How could we pay A-rod 33 Million with a 50 Million Cap? Mike G.
