The Cards went on to get Dienkengered (sp?) and Saberhagened in that Series. A lot of bad luck that year...

:-/


They were beaten by a team of destiny. ;-D


Jose Cardenal had a few really funny ones, I think guy just didn't want to play. He missed a game once because thought his eyes were stuck open. Wish I could remember some of the others, they were all really lame.

Oh, yes, I remember that one very well. :-D From now on, just stay away from razor-sharp objects like butterknives and you should be good. :-D

That testicle one just hurts reading it :-o

Why was Vince Coleman messing around with a tarp machine? How the hell do you get rolled up in one :-?


He was on the field when they started to roll it out and got his cleats hung in the grass as the machine rolled by.

I guess everyone has forgotten George Bretts hemeroids that caused him to miss some games in the ALCS?

Back to the topic briefly...

If you're asking if he's going put up the same season stats as 2004 or having the same dollar value, then the answer is no. If you're asking if you can "count on" him producing as well as he did before the injury, then the answer is no. That possibility exists, but it's far from being something you can count on.

two of my personal favorites from recent history are Kevin Brown losing a fight with a concrete wall, and Ishii (I think) getting injured lugging a suitcase up the stairs.

I don't know if it was the context -- or lackthereof -- or sleep deprivation, but that was one of the funniest things I've read in a while. :*)
