Serioiusly expected a nice battle for the top spot in the division but I guess Feliz knocked down the House of Cards. Since the Feliz deal, Cardinals have gone 4-8 while the Astros 8-4. ;-D O:-)

I am at a loss to explain how a lineup featuring Randy Winn, Pedro Feliz, and Brendan Ryan can't compete on a nightly basis.

I got an email to register for postseason tickets today. I laughed. Then I cried.

Maybe moving Ludwick wasn't the key to the offensive woes.

Jason LaRue told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Saturday that he will retire due to concerns over his season-ending concussion.
LaRue was kicked in the face multiple times by Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto during a scuffle in Cincinnati back in August. He's still experiencing headaches and nausea, something he likened to seasickness. "It's one of the hardest things in the world to explain," said the catcher. "You don't feel right. ... I'm done. It's a simple decision." The 36-year-old is likely to officially file retirement papers this offseason. He had a .231/.315/.396 career batting line over 11-plus seasons of professional baseball.

I can see retribution coming from the Cards to the Reds carrying over to next season and maybe beyond. Ugly.

Wow. I hope we hear about some serious contrition from Cueto after that. :-t

Then I guess it's too bad LaRue isn't Rick Flair

this is a common argument in just about every sport, and the problem is drawing the line between what's appropriate and inappropriate.

offerman faced charges for his bat-charging insanity, so it does happen.
but this isn't exactly that bad, is it?

kicking in the face is pretty terrible, you're risking serious injury at that point. i'd probably draw the line between punching and kicking.
