In other news, Carlos Pena hits a grand slam off of Sabathia in the first.

And in the very first inning of the first game... Girardi intentionally walks the "dangerous" Sean Rodriguez (career .227avg, .674 OPS) and the next batter (Carlos Pena) hits a grandslam.

An intentional walk in the first inning of game 1... Girardi in mid-season form with his overmanaging the game. How do you intentional walk a guy who hits under .230 and is an ~20% below average hitter.

That Rodriguez must be good, since he's protecting cleanup hitter Jeff Keppinger, who has 32 career home runs in over 2,000 at-bats.

Yeah, I'd have to agree with you. Even with the lefty vs. lefty advantage against Pena, I don't think I'd be putting extra guys on base ahead of a big slugger. Pena is one of the few big bats in the Rays lineup it appears.

Carlos Pena's average also sucks and he was terrible in the spring. Terrible last year with runners on base as well. He does have power, though.

.

The Astros don't move to the AL West til 2013, so next year will be the start of year round interleague play.

And Ken Rosenthal tweeted that Selig said there is no way he foresee's the NL adopting the DH and the AL getting rid of the DH, so MLB will continue to play different rules between the leagues in interleague games.

Pujols doesn't care about shit but himself. He is the guy that wants his ex-girl to know that he still "loves" her but wants a new girlfriend at the same time. They talked earlier during this game about how fast the deal went down and one of the things must have been how bad Pujols wanted to leave St. Louis. If that is really true then fuck him as the Cardinal fans treated him really well and the organization would have given him anything he would have ever realistically needed. Just for one night I hope that the Angels fans get nothing from him to get excited about.

I liked Bernie Miklasz's take on it:


Three observations:
(1) Pujols is a great player and he will have a monster year, because he's always at his best when fueled by rage;
(2) This is the most insecure and overly sensitive star athlete I've seen in 30 years of covering pro sports;
(3) Apparently no amount of money, not even $250 million, can buy happiness.

04-07-12, 01:13 AM
My biggest beef with Pujols is his twisting of the situation to try and get his "ex-girlfriend" to continue to love him just the same while he gets a new piece of pie. He wants people to believe that he is some sort of victim here and that he has a right to feel hurt and have anger towards the Cardinals. What he fails to realize is that a good majority of the Cardinals fans, as well as fans of most franchises, cheer for the team first and an individual second. And aside from being a great player he wasn't that great to the fans to begin with.

You said the same thing a week after the trade... and then a month later were still making bitter comments.

I understand what you are saying but I think it is being done by both sides. What other recent players have Cardinal fans spoken badly about? Edmonds was traded and we never spoke bad about him and he is now involved with the Cardinals franchise again. Ludwick was traded away and now plays for the rival Reds and I haven't read any negative comments of him either. Eckstein will forever be beloved by Cardinal fans despite his short tenure there and playing elsewhere afterwards. It all comes down to how Pujols has left and how he feels the need to justify what he did to try and make us continue to love him while banging someone else. He tried to force the Cardinals hand to give him something that they just couldn't and bailed. He had the right to leave and we have the right to hate. Who else should care how we feel?
