(Extra Inn. Overflow with The Glare) He made the right call, Lugo said, raising his eyebrows and smiling. I know I'm safe.

I asked if Crutchfield ever played for the Cardinals, since they were the nearest big league team. Eventually they explained to me about the segregation of the time.
Holliday said he wanted your pants. He says they probably have some hits in them.
I just saw him hit a walk-off home run that morning on ESPN and here he is cheering for our team.
Carpenter laughed. "He wouldn't let me off the phone. It was like 45 minutes of just nonsense."
Many thanks to the guest-posters and guest-reposters who kept VEB going while I was away. I return today, but not this morning—here's a thread to hold any and all rumors about the Cardinals talking long-term-deal with some hitter who couldn't even stick at third base.
Speaking to Tim McKernan on KFNS radio, Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse explained why departed shortstop Brendan Ryan was an issue in the team clubhouse. "I like Brendan, and I think a lot of guys wanted him to do well," Lohse said. "We all tried to help him out and tried to help him understand what being a professional was ... but I honestly think that when things aren't going so good, and you're still kind of the way he is … when you're still kind of forgetting to do the things you're supposed to, it starts to wear on you. He by no way is any reason why we didn't take the NL Central — but, I think just one little distraction that kind of rubbed some people the wrong way and it's just one of those things that doesn't help a team out. Brendan Ryan is who he is, and he's going to continue being that guy and personally I like him. I just don't think he's ever going to change and the inability to get serious about things kind of makes people really tired of you."
If this has been posted on VEB already, my apologies. It was packed at the bottom of a Rams column. Thought I'd share.
