It’ll be interesting to see how Holliday responds after his error cost the Cardinals a split in L.A.
St. Louis, remember, was suppose to be the team to beat because of Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright.
That’s now out the window with the Dodgers leading two-zip.
Series isn’t over, of course, but Holliday’s miscue most likely cost St. Louis its season.
By the way, how much does Mark DeRosa hate the Dodgers!
I somehow lost track of Big Papi this summer.
So much was made of his poor start though April and May -batted below .200 with 1 HR and 18 RBI – that I mistakenly assumed his whole season was a bust.
Turns out the big man whopped 28 home runs with 99 RBI in 150 games. Never would have guessed it.
Ortiz’s poor .238 average was much to be desired, but still not a shabby for a 33-year-old DH.
Jason Bay as a Red Sox is good for baseball.
No player of his talent should waste away in Pittsburgh as his did for five and a half years.
And I couldn’t think of a better replacement in Boston for Manny than the level-headed, always professional Bay.
