Spent most of Thursday moving…will spend most of Friday moving.
I’ve lived in five different places since January of 2008.
All of them are within about a 10 mile radius.
Moving sucks, but I’ll say this, and I say it sincerely: each time I’ve moved I’ve used Hazzard Moving, and each time, we have been incredibly happy with the result.
Trust me…if I didn’t feel this way, I wouldn’t mention it. But, my guess is many of you (including myself) have had some negative moving experiences, and I can tell you that Hazzard Moving has been outstanding in each one of my many moves.
Because of my move, my column will be especially random and suck even more today:
-Going into a series facing Cain, Zito, Vogelsong, and Bumgarner, I’d be happy with two and just moving the fuck on.
-The Cardinals will go from that foursome to Philadelphia to deal with Roy Halladay tonight and Cliff Lee tomorrow.
-Meanwhile, in the Big 12 North, the Reds are enjoying a four game series with the Cubs, and the Pirates are hosting the Padres.
-I could be off the mark here, but I don’t think the Cardinals decided to trade Tyler Greene after fans booed him in the introductions Wednesday night. I don’t think they decided to trade him when he made his infamous error in the 6th inning Wednesday night. And, I don’t think it was the three strikeouts. When I heard his comments about the fans booing and his response telling them not to show up if they want to boo, I knew he was gone. DFA or trade. That was it. The comments were timid, relatively speaking. But, that was it.
-Fun with power rankings in honor of the vacationing Doug Vaughn. Per Friend of The Show, Yahoo! Sports columnist Jeff Passan:
10. White Sox
-I had a rare situation yesterday on a Thursday afternoon…two sporting events I wanted to watch: the Cardinals-Giants and the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team against Japan. I’d gather most people in the St. Louis Area are quite pleased with both results, but the U.S. is getting criticism for the shirts the players wore following their 2-1 win over Japan. The t-shirts handed to them from Nike said, “Greatness Has Been Found.”
-Fun facts for know and tell: Major League Baseball announced its playoff schedule yesterday. One thing that I find particularly intriguing is that two teams from the same division could play each other in the first round. Considering the high percentage of probability that the Reds, Pirates, and Cardinals could all make the playoffs, and considering the high probability that the Reds win the division, you could very well see the Reds and Cardinals in the first round. Now, I’d personally prefer a Cardinals-Reds NLCS, but from a principle standpoint, I’m glad MLB has finally made the change from the previous policy in which two teams from the same division couldn’t meet in the first round.
-Jake Westbrook joined TheITDRoll.com Morning After yesterday and stood by teammate Kyle Lohse. Not for the National League Cy Young. No, no. Something more important. Westbrook says Lohse was not involved in Fistgate and that our eyes are deceiving us.
-In a related story, because I’m moving today and have had Game Six and Game Seven saved on my DVR ever since October---and I’ll no longer have the DVR player, I decided to get sentimental and watch Game Six last night. Now, I realize it’s no NFC First Round Playoff game between the 49ers and Saints, but much like the group scene at the end of Where The Boys Aren’t 19, I could watch Game Six over and over and never get tired of it. But, ever since Fistgate, that celebration at home plate has taken on a different vibe for me. I didn’t think about it at all…and then right there at the end…I’m reminded of it. There’s Skip jumping up and down joyfully…and there’s Lohse sniping him with his unwelcomed visitor.
