Nicely done. I do have to say, I thought about those bases during today's game. Wonder what Jack Corbett's estate is worth these day.

I was tripping on mushrooms and needed a ride. I was in a city park and it was about 2 am. No cabs anywhere. Pulled out my Lyft app and within 5 minutes they were at the park's trailhead. The driver had a bottle of water for me, a phone charger for my iPhone, and a clean and neat ride. I told him how I was, um, feeling, and told him a funny story of an event that happened earlier in the night. I downed two bottles of water, charged my phone, had him drive through McD's for some French fries and then got dropped off at home. Cabs are for chumps.

How about Profar for Miller?

If October 2013 is anything like his October 2011, he gets signed to a 3 year deal between $15-$18 million from the Cardinals. If he doesn't, he will sign with the Padres or Marlins.

Put it this way, if he comes back we will have #12 in '13.

We also cannot forget his Game 5 of the 2011 NLDS.  He battled Halladay with a 10 pitch at bat and drove in the only run of the game to compliment Carpenter's 1-0 victory.

 

He'll forever have a place in Cardinal lore.

So what exactly does this tell me?  Hell if I know.  There are anomalies like Babe Ruth and Barry Bonds.  Some of these guys served in WWII and missed out on a season or two of their prime.  Some guys got injured and were never the same.  Most likely the numbers will drop for Albert.  10 years is a long time, will he get bored? Tired? Injured? Intoxicated by the SoCal weather? Lazy? Fat? Fat and Lazy?
I am sad today.  I know we will pick up some quality guys who will help out this team.  I know Berkman is by far the best back up first baseman in the majors.  I hope Allen Craig is ready to play next year.  I believe Matheny will rally this clubhouse and move on.  But I do believe that a little part of me died today and was sent to LA.
I guess the one saving grace is that we don't have to see him play against the Cardinals.  He can stay on the west coast, get lost in the late broadcasts of Baseball Tonight, break all sorts of hitting records as a DH in his 40's, and ride off into the sunset.  But so help me God, if we are to ever meet in the World Series, it will be an epic showdown.

Best of luck Albert.  See you at Safeco.

The only way that I can move on from the departure of Albert Pujols is by 1.) crying like a baby in my beer tonight and 2.) looking at the numbers.
1. a ten year deal puts Albert at 41 in 2020.  Paying him $22+ million a year at that age really handcuffs the organization.  I think Johnny Mo got it right and not overpaying.  As much as I would like to see Albert enshrined as a Cardinal, you cannot hogtie the team like that.
2. in my madness this morning, and without the approval from my higher up, I delved into the baseball reference website to see how the greatest to play this simple game typically do after the age of 31.  We all know the numbers go down, but how bad can it get?  I based the following information on the three stats we have all come to know and love from Albert (30 HR, 100 RBI, & .300 AVG).
Lets start with the best and head down:

Players Name    Age     Season 30+HR    Season 100+RBI  Season .300 AVG
1. Babe Ruth    24-30           5                       5                       9
                       31-40           8                       8                       8
2. Willie Mays  20-30           6                       5                       7
                       31-42           5                       5                       3
3. Hank Aaron   20-30           6                       7                       9
                       31-42           4                       4                       5
4. Stan Musial  20-31           3                       5                       10
                       32-42           3                       5                       7
5. Micky Mantle 19-29           7                       3                       7
                       30-36           2                       1                       3
6. Jimmie Foxx  17-30           10                      10                      9
                       31-37           2                       3                       2
7. Frank Robinson       20-31           8                       5                       6
                       32-40           3                       1                       3

                       32-42           9                       7                       7
10.Ken Griffey Jr       19-31           7                       8                       7

The philosophical quest for understanding our cyber-friends through which space and time have been stripped and the microcosm of the reality when we meet face to face is a new phenomenon in our social lives. I have a story.

Freshman year of college in murray, 1999, the Internet has exploded and there were all sorts of new things to see, collective, interpret, and interact with. It was my first computer, porn, videos, music, games, all at the touch of my finger tips. Then on a boring Friday night I logged onto yahoo games (dixiechicken420), I loved playing euchre. I played with friends from other schools. It was wild. I got on to play and struck up a friendly conversation with a girl playing at my table (mustanggirl). The chat continued after the game. We spoke like we knew each other for years. We spoke on the phone and it was like talking to an old friend, it got intense, spiritual, and sexual. The only picture I saw of her was awesome. A hottie posing in front of a fire red mustang. This was the vision in my head as we told each other secrets from our past. She went to school at Kent State, a good 15 hours from Murray. After a couple of weeks of phone and euchre chat, she decided she wanted to see me in person. Over a long weekend, she drove down to Murray. Late Friday night she arrived at my dorm, weary from the drive. I didn't know what to expect (I am a man and mostly had dreams of sex, and lots of it). Well, that didn't happen. The luster wore off after a couple hours and the picture she had posted was a good 2-3 years old. I might have also fudged my digits at that time too (6' and 180lbs? Maybe my senior year of high school and before my freshman 40). She stayed saturday night and slept on my futon, I got zero action, she left Sunday, and I never spoke to her again.

I believe we can hide behind the screen, glitz, and glamour of the internet and make us who we want to be. More funny, more controversial, less neurotic, more self confidence. Then when we make contact, face to face contact, with that person we have been typing to, and, well we are often left feeling a bit disappointed. The girl was nice and if we lived 20 minutes away from each other it might have been more, who's to say. All I know is that I got no action and that left a sour taste in my mouth for Internet relationships.

At least she wasn't a 300lb bald dude who lived in a trailer pretending to be a 19 year old hottie from Ohio who drives a red mustang.

Listened to the interview yesterday and this was my take:

A. Why were you so much louder, it sounded like the pirate guy was speaking into a jar
B. Was this a face to face interview?
C. Who was eating during the interview, I kept hearing the clang of silverware.
D. Who was that dude? I think he was looking at the roster for opening day 2010. Ludwick? Ryan? Although you were just as bad.
E. Is there something wrong hooks? Not one mention of booze, women, coke, or debauchery in the whole interview, you feeling okay? Although I did chuckle when you said "two stoners like us". I could feel that dude getting uncomfortable.
F. Nice work and keep it comin'
