Some breaking news - Danny Mac was arrested late Monday night on suspicion of driving drunk. And for some reason, the Post used a picture of him when he was about 16. The "new and improved" beefier Danny Mac would laugh at that scrawny little bastard, but then he'd have to sit down because he's out of breath. It's kind of weird that the news of this took three nights to come out, as obsessed as we all are about 1) Cardinal baseball, 2) St. Louis sports media, and 3) gossip. If even three or four St. Louis moms ever started a gossip blog, the city would crumble.
As for Thursday's big news, mere hours after prying away Pedro Feliz from slow-pitch softball teams everywhere, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak declared that the ballclub should kinda sorta start winning games, maybe. Per BJ Rains (the Cardinal writer, not the 90s porn star), Mozeliak says:
"We have to start wining baseball games. Talk is cheap. It has to start tomorrow."
Hey, yeah! I like that idea. Let's listen to that guy.
So the series vs. San Francisco begins tonight with the Cards 3.5 games behind the Reds (though only two in the loss column). I'm pretty sure their GM gave the "talk is cheap" speech already, which could be why they re-gained the NL Central lead. Maybe this is the point where the Birds quit making asses of themselves.
The Giants won't make it easy, with MadBum, Lincecum and Zito taking the hill. They wouldn't even let the Cards knock around Todd Wellemeyer, who was just cut loose. And because I know you're wondering - I'm 99.9% sure the Cardinals aren't interested in bringing the Todalion back. They already have enough guys off the scrap heap, they're going to have to spend extra for all those World Series rings.
And because Hooks is out west at a Glee Convention...oops, wasn't supposed to say that...here are some links / some stuff / and some junk for you to enjoy:
