Bases loaded, down by 1 run, two out in the bottom of the ninth, and Tony Larussa leaves Albert Pujols on the bench? How did this guy win two World Series again?

I was asking myself the same thing.

And Pujols is crying about not getting into the game, his image is sure a lot different than it was a year ago.

His off the field image has never been exactly cuddly.

Pujols loves to whine. Lots and lots. My mother, who is a huge Cardinals fan, and usually blindly defensive (she thinks it's nuts that we don't like Rolen), even admits this fact.

Really? I dont mean to challenge b/c I seriously am stunned. All I have heard about is his great relationship with his wife, a hard work ethic and he is an all around good guy? Am I missing something?

Well, I am a Cub fan.

And I hate Rolen too. Not just b/c he's a Cardinal, but b/c of how he was in Philly.

Of current players, he's second to only J.D. Drew.

Hey Mets fans, Rickey Henderson is your new hitting coach.

Aren't you one of them?

Or are you a Yanks fan this week?

Yeah, but this time Pujols has a right to be pissed. Larussa clearly screwed up (strategically speaking) by not pinch-hitting Pujols for Rowand at the end of the game, but the far bigger mistake was insisting that he made the right move instead of just apologizing.

Also, the Padres are going to be plenty pissed off at Larussa when Mike Lowell drives in the winning run of Game 7 at Fenway.

LaRussa thinks it was wise to save Pujols for later. My thinking is b/c he didn't use the guy, there was no later.

There's been talk about not having a position for Pujols after he hit. Meh, just put him in left field. He did that for a while...poorly, but hey. Better than losing.

But I'm just a Cubs fan and I don't think the Padres are going to make it. This is the year baby. Go Cubs!

first, lets get past the Brew Crew.

Oh, and JD Drew...

He has done some grousing before the All Star game, groused about Howard beating him for MVP last year and a few other incidents.
I agree he had a right to be a tad pissed this week, but should have kept it private, especially since LaRussa is his own manager.

If you're looking for Police tix, they released Fenway seats...see the thread in B&C for links, not thru Ticketmaster, thru Red Sox, etix.
And get a 2nd mortgage.
Decent seats though, A3 Saturday, A5 Sunday if you wanna pay the $225 plus per seat
