    Hmmm. Cardinals even let Skippy hit them. Doom, despair and agony in Cardinal Nation

    Hang on. Did Skip just do something positive?

    Is this like an april fools game or something? I'm not falling for it. This game is being broadcast by The Onion, right?

    I was born in '70 so I only know Klu by his stats and stories like yours. But his strength IS legendary. Was HOF'er Perez that much better at 1st?

    It's the once-a-week high scoring game to keep you interested until the end of the season. Reds score 1,0,2,1,3 in the next five games.

    Well from the eye of a pre-teen, he always seemed to field his position well enough and his brute strength was amazing. Crosley was small, but I once saw him hit a ball over the Sun Deck in right field. Perez was finesse, but Klu was simply brute strength. By the way, I looked up the game and it was 1956. I was 7. Why can I remember that and not what I had for lunch today?

    Nice job by Sam. Should've been 1-2-3 but an E by Suarez mixed in.

    Skip and Pena have played in a combined 207 games....they are tied with me and Linda Antus in combined home runs.

    unlike most -- his hit will likely earn him 7 starts in a row
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    I miss Raisor

    Cody Stanley went to my college, so I feel like I should root for him. But he plays for the Cardinals AND had a PED suspension in the minors.
