Ha, Freese coming in to PH.
You gotta be shittin' me.
Got lucky there.
Son of a bitch.
Walk in the park, that game.
Today's game is the free one on MLB.com, if you want to watch it on the net instead, Jay.
Nah, since it's in St. Louis, I'll get Hrabosky and McLaughlin. Even those two jackasses are more tolerable than the dipshits from Atlanta.
You'll get them on the net too, because it's your home game.
I didn't pay the extra amount, so I only get the home announcers. Didn't realize that when I signed up, cuz the rest of the "extras" between the 2 packages were all fag phone crap and other meaningless crap.
Chipper moved by ovation from Cardinals fans

St. Louis – The Cardinals have a special presentation planned for Chipper Jones Sunday before the last game of the weekend series and what might be his final game at Busch Stadium. Jones, who’s retiring at the end of the season, is expected to be presented with some autographed items and possibly something signed by Hall-of-Famer and Cardinals great Stan Musial.
Equally special to Jones was the impromptu ovation he received from Cardinals fans on Friday night, a spontaneous gesture they made as he approached the plate for his first at-bat in the first inning of a 9-7 win.
It caught Jones off guard, and given that the Braves had runners in scoring position, he was focused on the game situation. But Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina called timeout and went to the mound to give Jones time to relish the moment, which he did, stepping out and tipping his hat to the crowd.
“Very classy by the St. Louis fans,” Jones said. “They’re widely regarded as the best fans in baseball, and they showed it last night. It was certainly not expected and a little bit a shock to me. I’m not used to getting that kind of reaction on the road, but just goes to show you they know their baseball. And their ovation was much appreciated.”
Jones had received an ovation Wednesday in Chicago after the final out of the series there, standing on the top step. But only about 10,000 fans were still in the ballpark. He’s received gifts like the Braves flag from atop the center field flag pole at Wrigley Field and a Stetson cowboy hat from the Astros, and video tributes in Arizona and Los Angeles.
But the moment Friday night in St. Louis, “kind of took the cake for me.”
And it came on a night the Cardinals were retiring former manager Tony La Russa’s No. 10 in front of a sold-out crowd.
“The guys were making fun of me that St. Louis is so classy that they mowed No. 10 into the grass for me,” Jones said.
Musial, 91, is not expected to attend Sunday’s ceremony. He suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and his wife of 72 years Lillian just died a week ago.
Bases loaded for Craig.
