I'm not sure when, but it was after the stadium was named Busch Stadium, and it was to capitalize on the name of the stadium to sell more beer.

    Re: Sick and tired of the cardinals

    I am reminded when seeing the way we play the Cardinals over the last few years of the documentary on the Brooklyn Dodgers I watched recently where they talked about how soul crushing it was when the Yankees beat them in the World Series in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952, and 1953, before the Dodgers finally beat them in 1954. In that moment, all the heartbreak before it seemed worth it.

    I don't know what our 1954 moment is, or if it will even happen. But if it does, I have had enough of the foreplay and am ready to see the Reds have their moment in the sun already.

That's an amazing statement."

    And Reds, keep you heads in the ballgame, e.g.

    Votto forgetting how many outs. Yes, it didn't materially hurt, but come on. Sends a huge signal.

    Parra thinking Beltran is stealing signs. Him and Mes chat, Mes starts hopping around behind the plate like a Mexican jumping bean to deke out whoever, Parra loses his control and walks Carpenter. Congratulations, you just got gamed.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    from our friend, Wikipedia:

    Busch Beer, a 4.6% abv economy brand pale lager was introduced in 1955 as Busch Bavarian Beer; the brand name was changed in 1979 to Busch Beer. Other beers marketed under the Busch brand name are Busch Light, a 4.1% pale lager introduced in 1989, Busch Ice, a 5.9% ice beer introduced in 1995, and Busch NA, a non-alcoholic brew. Ingredients are a mix of American-grown and imported hops and a combination of malt and corn.

    That cheater Molina is always always always checking on each pitch if the batter is stealing a sign. Can't stand that. Perhaps there is some stealing going on because it seems like they have the inside track on each pitch coming their way.

    Re: Sick and tired of the cardinals

    So Frazier and Votto get pegged last night. If poor Yadi got hit tonight wouldn't that be a shame.

    st. louis is 2nd in hitting batters with 58 and pittsburgh is 1st with 60. Is it wrong to want to play catch up in this category over the next few weeks?

    I don't want to give the Cardinals any more baserunners than they already have.

    Nice story but the Giants won the WS in 1954 over the Cleveland Indians. Try 1955 for the Dodgers' big moment----but, I get your point.

    Auggie decided to name it "Busch Stadium" telling MLB he was naming it after himself. They agreed to that. Then Auggie started production on a new Anheuser product, Busch beer, making sure that the stadium was in fact named after one of his company's beers.

    So the brand Busch beer was only started so Auggie Busch could name his stadium after one of his beers.

    No wonder it sucks.
    So you're saying Busch Stadium is really a big middle finger to MLB? That's actually pretty awesome.

    Re: Sick and tired of the cardinals

    get Alfredo Simon in there tonight at some point- he's hit 7 guys in 66 innings. He's like the designated plunker. And he's only walked 19 in that span so old Alfredo ain't just missing inside....he leads the team. Just have a fat lead and then see if he can reach double figures. Hey...it wouldn't be smart baseball, but it would be entertaining as all get out.

    I wonder if they are still experts at reading pitch tipping as the claim was in the LaRussa/Duncan days? Maybe they have a spy in the center field seats stealing signs and using Morse code to relay?

    Re: Sick and tired of the cardinals

    Who said batter vs pitcher is like a fist fight?

    I think that's true.

    I hope the Reds are rope-a-doping the hell out of the Cards right now.

    Deep down they're going to explode on the Cards 15-0 in the wild card game and they know it!

    Ha.

    I think Molina's paranoia about it is a tell.
