It would be even more perfect if Pujols took a called third strike to end the final game with the go-ahead runners on base and Carpenter got the loss. Pujols, in a steroid-induced rage, breaks his bat over his knee. Cork and a vial of HGH fly out. LaRussa comes out to argue the call, gets livid, punches an umpire and gets suspended for the entire 2012 season.
In this scenario, could Dusty decide he needs to retire. Also, CC Sabathia decides to opt out of his contract with the yankees, and come back to Ohio, albeit it the team in the SW corner, and sign for $400k a year?
