Baseball season is over. Congratulations to the Cardinals, and to Ronnie Belliard. I doubt Ronnie dared dream he would wear a ring at the All Star break. I was pleased that Jim Leyland, when interviewed immediately after his team lost, took blame for not preparing his team well enough and said the Cards just played better than the Tigers.
Anyone else get a chuckle out of Commissioner Selig attempting to pronounce David Eckstien's name when presenting him with the MVP hardware? Ole' Bud tried it a couple of ways within a minute. I'll bet if he had to make a longer speech, he would eventually just throw up is arms in confused resignation.
