So, I guess most here were rooting Rangers.

But I, for one, think that this was the best outcome under unfortunate circumstances.

Well, they earned it. Congrats to the St Louis Cardinals, 2011 World Series Champs. cheers.gif

There will be more to say later, but for now, it's their moment.

So, I thought that Adrian Gonzalez's "not God's plan for us" comments were pretty innocuous – wouldn't even have been worthy of mention at all if he'd been more direct in saying "but ultimately we're the ones who didn't get it done."

This Josh Hamilton "God told me I would hit a home run" story is…um…you know, I'm glad for him that he was able to overcome his problems with drugs and make use of his tremendous talent. And if faith in a higher power has helped him to do that, I have no objections.

But this is just looney.

I have quite a bit of faith myself that God did not ever actually have this particular conversation with Josh Hamilton. Although, God didn't tell me that, so I suppose I could be wrong.

Josh Hamilton comes from about an hour away from here in rural NC. I've been bitching about Hamilton for a couple of years. The local press runs a story on what a saint this guy is every couple of months. He drives me nuts blahblah.gif



plus , if God was really talking to him, he'd know God's a Red Soxfan



ok Congrats Cardinals

I'll leave this up for a day or so for people to comment, but will archive all the postseason stuff early next week. All the relevant Red Sox threads have been moved to the Hot Stove forum.

La Russa retires. I'm not a big La Russa fan but I really like it when people go out on a high note.

Agreed. I don't think I'll read the book when it comes out, but I do applaud his timing.

Way too young, but if you've gotta go, I guess it wasn't a bad finale.
