    I'm happy as a clam now as the National League is leading 5-0. All the runs were scored in the 1st inning. Tony LaRussa came out of retirement to coach the Nats and Joe Buck (son of the Cards' great announcer Jack Buck) and Tim McCarver, former Cards catcher from many years ago and current Cards announcer, are broadcasting the game.

    Hope the Nats continue to lead.

    We are. Local boy Mike Trout had a hit and a stolen base. Not bad for the kid.

    It was a good game---if you were rooting for the National League. I feel happy for Tony LaRussa. He's a good guy. It's nice to go out with an 8-0 shutout.

    I've attended the Royals in Kaufman, and the Chiefs in Arrowhead on many occassions. Both are beautiful stadiums.

    I'm an old school baseball fan and it pains me to see the Royals struggle over the years. I grew up with those great teams from the mid 70's to their World Championship in 1985. Apropos that the Phils and Royals faced each other in 1980 considering both franchises at the time were always in their respective LCS's but could never win. But sadly they can't seem to get back to where they were once was.

    Thanks Justin, for screwing up the Rangers' home field advantage in the 2012 World Series.

    You mean so they can lose a 3rd straight essentially becoming the Buffalo Bills of MLB?

    There was the series between the STL Cards and the KC Royals. Saw George Brett on tv at the All Star Game in KC--he's a class act. He filled in for Mark McGwire at a sports award dinner in STL some years ago. McGwire was a jerk and didn't let the folks know that he didn't plan to attend the huge dinner honoring him. He waited til the last minute. They got George Brett to come to STLouis in his place. He was a good and honorable guy.
