For all his flaws, he was uniquely talented at recognizing customer-antagonizing idiocy and doing something about it bull-in-china-shop style. That's what the cable, satellite and broadcast idiots need. They haven't learned from what happened to traditional book publishers and music labels. Their day of reckoning is coming. Our grandkids won't have to deal with this stupidity. The existing model is unsustainable.

    Don't know about Bench, but Bevacqua definitely won it. That baseball card is rather memorable. :O)

    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Being a relatively new member here, I've always wondered why Operator and others often do quasi play-by-play on the threads. Today, I both understand and appreciate it.

    Not just any "1." Ethier. Latos is as good as anyone in the game when he keeps a lid on his emotions.

    Schumaker, the Dodger version of the utility guy that seems to always kill us. This time Ludwick grabs a flyball. 1-2-3.

    And that's 3. Gorgeous inning by Latos. I really, really, want us to take this game. We are so due to roll the Cards and get beyond an LDS. Winning series against baseball's best teams like this shows we can do it.

    That's the key - I love his fire - he just needs to keep it focused and not blow up.

    Wow, one of the worst called strikes I've ever seen. I thought Eric Gregg retired.
