Hunt and Peck: Links of the Weekend

Our present business is general woe.

I haven't been this depressed about a player from another team getting hurt... well, ever.
I haven't been this depressed about a player from another team getting hurt... well, ever.

Look up, my lord.

Vex not his ghost: O, let him pass! he hates him much
That would upon the rack of this tough world
Stretch him out longer

He is gone, indeed.

The wonder is, he hath endured so long:
He but usurp'd his life.

Bear them from hence. Our present business
Is general woe. - Sparknotes

  • The Cards took on the Pirates Sunday and...
  • It is something you never really want to see, but yet, deep in your heart, you totally do. 
  • Who "won" the David Freese - Peter Bourjos trade? (I maintain it isn't fair to compare Bourjos to Freese because the Cardinals didn't replace Freese with Bourjos. They replaced Freese with Matt Carpenter who was replaced by Kolten Wong, and now Kolten Wong isn't on the 25 man roster. Cool, right?!) (Thanks, flood, for the link!) - MLB Daily Dish

The Cards look to bounce back tonight with their ace on the mound, Adam Wainwright. Waino has struggled against the Cubs in his previous two outings this year, but do not expect that to continue. I hope. Opposing him will be Jake Arrieta. Gametime is 7:15pm on Fox Sports Midwest, WCIU, KMOX 1120 and WGN 720.
