Hey Sports Fanatics and Addicts, Uncle Intrinsic is back to drop a little wisdom on you.
The highlight of last night’s 16-7 drubbing of the Rangers of course was the Cards first baseman Albert Pujols tying Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth’s record for homeruns in a World Series game with three. In a row.
In this 140 character brave new world of communications and expectations, this lesson is supported with the Friday comments and theories of the “experts”:
- Skipper Tony La Russa was too big of a gambler with his pitching changes and cost the Cards Game 2 and most probably, the 2011 World Series.
- Albert Pujols proved he was not a leader because he didn’t talk to the media after the close, come from behind loss dealt by the Rangers.
- Albert Pujols lost the game and possibly the series by botching a cut-off play that any little leaguer could have navigated.
- The Rangers play too well at home for the Cards to have a shot.
- There was a curse because alleged juicer Mark McGwire was a Cards coach.
