He had the ability to K batters and wasnít aided by umpires giving him pitches 6Ē below and 6Ē outside the strike zone.


Now, when he came to The Cardinals it was a different story. He suddenly started whining about the mound at GABP among other things. Itís something about putting on that uniform.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t understand how stressful the whole thing was until I was there.

My wife had to be induced early due to pre-eclampsia, it took FOREVER, and there was one time where her BP crashed and the baby (who was unborn as of yet) started crashing with her.

I had never been so terrified in my entire life. I wore a path in the floor pacing in that room. Everything turned out fine though.

And with all that being said, I gained a huuuuuuge amount of respect for nurses during that experience. I mean, I always respected nursing as a profession, I just didn’t realize HOW MUCH they did. They did everything and were fantastic. They basically got the ball to the 1-inch line so the doctor could come in and punch it into the end zone while collecting a hefty paycheck.

And with all that being said, I gained a huuuuuuge amount of respect for nurses during that experience. I mean, I always respected nursing as a profession, I just didn’t realize HOW MUCH they did. They did everything and were fantastic. They basically got the ball to the 1-inch line so the doctor could come in and punch it into the end zone while collecting a hefty paycheck.

What an experience.

Yeah, i can be a time. My other daughter is a nurse in the burn and trauma unit up in Columbus at Nationwide Children’s. I don’t know how she does it.

Do you think Amir Garret would beat present day Michael Jordan in a game of 1 on 1?

The rumor was that after Charlotte took Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist second in the 2012 draft MJ beat him in a game of one on one.

That was 8 years ago though.

I'm still saying no.

Id argue this is still worse than they were supposed to do. So getting them to barely above .500 and arguably one of the worst hitting teams in the MLB isn't something to write home about. If the turn around was above average hitting, id be there with ya.

Lorenzen got 10 outs to Mahle's 7, and kept his inherited runner from scoring, while the runner on when Lorenzen left wasn't prevented by Garrett. Both Mahle and Lorenzen gave up 1 earned run. Lorenzen stands to get the win if the lead doesn't disappear.

I get all of that but also he was going fine and Garrett not always the guy greatly precise when he first comes in. I understood the winning it tonight situation.

I also will think itís asinine to take out Sims to put in Bradley if it happens. The more pitchers used the more likely one will not have his good stuff. Sims looked unhittable, Bradley is great....but I donít know that Bradley is great today. Sims showed heís ready for this last inning.
