To toss or not to toss; that is the question

June 5, 2013

Intense emotion and frustration has been a part of all sports since the beginning of time. Everyone wants to win and no one wants to lose. As for Major League Baseball, the pride that many players take spills over a little far at times.
Armed with a bat and a helmet, players have been known to take out a water cooler or throw some head gear a time or two in the past. While most outbursts lead to ejections more times than not the player should have stayed in the game.

Pitching and defense really is the answer

June 5, 2013

With their 4-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday, the St. Louis Cardinals still hold the best record in the majors, and it seems like they have been the best team in baseball all season. But, unfortunately for he Redbirds, the National League Central has the third- and fourth-best teams (Texas Rangers are second-best at 35-21) in the majors, too, and the 37-19 Cardinals hold just a 2.5 game lead over the 35-22 Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds.

June 5, 2013

At the end of the 2012 baseball season, the St. Louis Cardinals and Cardinal Nation were left with the sick feeling of what could have been after losing a 3-0 lead in the NLCS against the Giants. A team that wasn’t supposed to make it and then proved everyone wrong, once again, was back in the spotlight only to fall before the big dance.
Now that the 2013 season is well underway, the Cardinals are turning heads again. With the best record in baseball at 35-18, St. Louis has blown through opponents with ease while losing very few games.

McClendon's can't hold leads in DH

June 5, 2013

BENTON – The Benton McClendon’s were up in both games of their doubleheader against the AAA Texarkana Razorbacks in American Legion baseball action on Friday, but ended up with 10-9 and 2-1 losses to fall to 0-3 on the young season.
In Game 2, Benton was up 1-0 with two outs and runners at second and third, with an 0-2 count when McClendon’s catcher Shawn Beesley overthrew his pitcher Hunter McDade, which resulted in the tying and winning runs to come around the score, when no one was backing up. Benton Coach Brandon Wake thought he had seen everything in his years coaching baseball.
