World Series Game One, Cardinals at Tigers
As Kool-Aid Man says, “Oh yeah!”
SS-R David “The Golden Retriever” Eckstein (also: The Ignitor)
C-R Y Molina
LF-R Taguchi TONY LA RUSSA = GENIUS!!!!oneone!!
1B-B Guillen (1b? I wonder who’s at short)
DH-L Casey (Casey at DH? what?)
Yes, the Tigers are playing Carlos Guillen at first, the guy we traded him for at short, and Sean Casey is their DH. Wooow.
I wonder if this is a case of Leyland trying to out-LaRussa LaRussa. “Think you’re a genius, huh, like making weird moves, huh, well I made some weird moves in the ALCS and this one… heh heh heh… you’re not going to believe what I’ll do to play a good defensive third baseman.”
I’ve got some beer, some snacks… actually, I note that my snack stockpile is clearly inadequate for a World Series game and requires reinforcements. Excuse me for a minute.
