friday afternoon brought somewhat surprising news: randal grichuk had been traded to the toronto blue jays. cardinals fans had a bit of a love-hate relationship with the young randal. some thought he started too much. some thought him a perfectly capable fourth outfielder. some thought maybe, just maybe, he might breakout into something special with just a smidge more bat control. and some thought he stunk. well now he is gone, and while there are some things we might disagree one, two things are certain. 1. he had some great moments. 2. my goodness, that hair is incredible.
since i am writing this on my phone in the middle of nowhere, coughing my lungs out, lets get to the videos

that is all for today - do not fear, though! the somewhat underwhelmingly mediocre quality you have come to expect from me will be back tomorrow!
