OH yeah, as for the Reds not complaining...i recall Phillips and Cueto not making the All Star team and there was a lot of complaining going on. From Dusty, from BP and Cueto. I for one thought Cueto should have made the team and possibly been named starter (even though he was scheduled to make the start the next day), he should have been given that honor. But nope, everyone here thought it was some big huge FU from La Russa. When in reality, the Reds fans didn't vote enough for either one....then the players didn't vote for either one. So when the vote fell to La Russa...suddenly it was all his fault.
Don't even get me started on how stupid it was for BP to scurry off to Twitter and cry "racism" before even trying to address the issue behind closed doors.
With La Russa, yes, I see the Cards complaining about stupid stuff as being funny. Look through some of my old posts, I openly admit it. Matheny, completely different ball game. This was just a case of players being asked about something they've been asked about every year. Going all the way back to 2004, the Cards had to play a 2pm start time and guys like Renteria and Reggie Sanders commented on the shadows. Nothing new.

I am betting we won't hear a peep about those shadows after today's game.
Game started after the shadows made their way across the infield. Still a stupid start time for a playoff game.
