    It was horrible and for as much as Joey knows about hitting, he hasn't figured out that choking up leaves him vulnerable to outside pitches like Miller fed him there. For Joey they were unhittable

    At least we didn't send a pitcher up swinging away with one out and the bases loaded.

    He didn't lift his bat to swing. I was listening to the Cards play by play and they suggested he was looking for a slider all the way which was never thrown..

    That's when we know Bell has some stones....... Farmer should have pinch hit. Joey was helpless against Miller.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    My guess is that if Germany had successfully defended the D-Day invasion, they would have prevailed in the War in Europe, while the US would have won the War in the Pacific, and the United States and Nazi Germany would have settled into a Cold War.
    I was mostly kidding when I said that latter part. I think it would have been difficult for Germany to have still won the war in Europe with Russia bearing down on them from the east. Russia may have eventually taken all of Europe. Who knows? Just be thankful that D-Day and beyond was successful and were able to end the war in Europe within in a year. Just too many endless possibilities if we had not.

    Is that OPS, or 89% of runners he knocks in when they are on 2nd or 3rd when he comes to bat with 2 out? What is your OPS if you come to the plate 10 times with RISP and go 0-5 with 5 BB and no RBI?

    I think the east-west iron curtain line would have been drawn much further west if we'd not gone into France. The first few waves of that invasion was a suicide mission on the part of our men. Imagine the bravery and unselfishness to agree to be in that wave to free a country an ocean away from yours.
