They gave Joe Buck a podium. That only increases his annoyingness ten fold.

Let's get this League battle started right:

The DH > Letting Pitchers "Hit"

I can definitely recommend that Negro League museum. I spent a couple hours walking it a few years back. Really a great experience.

coolio mack: I can definitely recommend that Negro League museum. I spent a couple hours walking it a few years back. Really a great experience.


Seconded. Definitely worth it. It's connected with the Jazz Museum, which I wish I had time for but I hear is also excellent.

I also took a private tour of Kauffman Stadium, happened to be the only one on the tour, just me and this teenage usherette. Got to go on the field (well, the grass), in the dugout, visitor's clubhouse/locker room, press box, media room, a couple other places. I think most stadiums offer this. Lots of fun, pretty ballpark.

It's very hard not to.

We're still not over Cano though.

Is it really that important for the pitchers to be warming up? I mean, they only have to pitch for an inning or so

Pitchers always warm up, even relievers coming in for one batter.

My prediction: 7-3 AL, Cano gets a HR for extra troll points
 
2012-07-10 08:06:49 PM

He should make a note of that on the back of his jerseys. Just have IBKUAYN somewhere above his name.

Of course Ruiz is used to taking balls to the face. He's a catcher. That's like saying a stripper is used to getting wadded up dollar bills chucked at her lady bits and expecting it to be insightful.

Flyovers are nothing more than training missions. Flight time spent on the flyover is deducted from the allotment for the pilots and aircraft.

Buffalo Bills have 2 titles under their belt. I think you were trying for Philadelphia Eagles, but, unlike the Eagles, we at least were able to play in the big game 2 years in a row.

I'll give you a "good try though!" You're a Saints fan if I remember correctly, so you need some form of hope for the future.

also, hard to blame Fielder on that one, after last night he sees a ball coming toward him he probably thinks "oh, fark, I have to hit this thing 400+ feet?"

Great catch, but best outfielder? Half the time when hes playing for us and doesn't go all out I'm thankful... we cannot lose that bat

He didn't make the decision.

He should've known to pull himself out of the game. Some team's fans didn't get what they wanted and it wasn't faiiiiiiiiiiiiiir.

You know, I despise Tim McCarver since he never shuts up about how great baseball used to be and he continually tries to talk about how awesome Bob Gibson was...but I just can't hate Joe Buck. Sure, everybody finds him annoying and he is such a walking cliche that it has to hurt...

But, my former boss tells a story of seeing Joe Buck outside a hotel bar after a world series game. A bunch of the clubbies were sitting around and Joe Buck walks by, my former boss yells out "hey, Buck, you suck".

Joe Buck, without breaking stride, turns his head and yells "Hey, f*ck you" and keeps on walking out the hotel.

I have to respect the man for that.

Or we appreciate the humor in this entire situation and are enjoying it. From the get go I've appreciated the fact that Royals fans were so bent out of shape over something so pointless. They're well within their rights to boo Cano, just as I'm well within mine to laugh at their reason for doing it.

Apply directly to forehead in the event of a Joe Buck article:

Joe Buck Pissed In My Shoes
a short narrative by (Farker) NakedReporta


Back when I was 11 and living in St. Louis, my parents decided I was too smart to be wasting my time in public schools and started seeking out private schools. The choice was eventually narrowed to two: John Burroughs and Country Day. I took the admittance test for each, but a kid I really hated from the public school I had attended was also trying to get into Burroughs, so I tanked that test.

Come fall, I was a seventh-grader at St. Louis Country Day School (known as CODASCO for short), whose famous alums include Vincent Price and John Danforth. And so began a year of sheer living hell. Most of the kids at CODASCO came from monied families, while I was this socially inept middle-class kid who wore the same Sears-bought suit every day. I was an immediate target.

One of my classmates was Joe Buck, the son of legendary Cardinals announcer Jack Buck. Joe was kind of a big, fat kid, but he had all the airs of social entitlement. Typical of the kind of stupid crap Buck would pull on me was to ask me if I "knew" my mother or to mock my attire. On more than one occasion, he was one of the ringleaders as five or six kids would decide to simultaneously throttle me.

But the final indignity came on a spring afternoon when we had gym class. We all changed into our standard-issue t-shirts and shorts and trotted out to the baseball field. All, that is, except Joe Buck, who bolted out of the locker room about a minute behind the rest. And when gym period was over, and we returned to the locker room, there were my Docksides-knockoff loafers, filled with the acrid stench of urine. Buck denied it, and the gym teacher didn't really give a shiat.

I had to wear my gym sneakers the rest of the day, then tearfully explain to my parents about what had happened. They decided to press the issue, and it culminated in Joe and his mom and my mother and I all meeting with the headmaster. Joe denied it, I couldn't prove it, and the headmaster made us shake hands. I knew the remaining months were only going to be worse. The group beatings and mockery intensified. I barely passed my way through the seventh grade, and the next year I was back in public school. The torment continued -- hey, I was a real dork -- but at least it was free.

Look, kids can do cruel things. Joe was looking to be one of the guys, and I was an easy mark. He couldn't have any idea that my home life
