They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear."

This is the first time in the live-rodent era – 1920 on – that a squirrel has made consecutive appearances in a postseason [series].- Tim Kurkjian. He also reports that Skip Schumaker did not realize it was a squirrel at the time. By the way, Stuart Scott is miffed that the squirrel is not following him on twitter. Yes, the squirrel has been called out on national TV, in addition to being picked up by the AP. Just the facts from the P-D. ETA: Scott acknowledges that he is "honored" that the Busch squirrel is now following him on Twitter. (Second run of late SportsCenter, so that's about an hour turnaround.)

I asked if Crutchfield ever played for the Cardinals, since they were the nearest big league team.

Holliday said he wanted your pants. He says they probably have some hits in them.Equipment manager Rip Rowan to Hall-of-Famer and Coach Emeritus Red Schoendienst Moar Goold quote for when the P-D erases it: The prolonged skid left some Cardinals searching for ways to bust the slump. Skip Schumaker and Ryan Theriot had Kyle Lohse shave lines in their hair, but only on one side, from the temple back. Schumaker suggested they go old school and wear their cuffs high to reveal red stirrups. Ryan Theriot and Yadier Molina agreed, and before taking the field Holliday decided "to join the little fellas." That's why he needed Schoendienst's pants -- they fit his waist, but were short enough to show off the socks. Wearing them the way Schoendienst does, with the black and white rings showing at the top of the stirrup, Holliday drilled a fastball from Royals' reliever Greg Holland with one out in the eighth to reverse the Royals' one-run lead. Colby Rasmus set up the winner with a leadoff single off a lefty reliever, and on a hit-and-run he sped to second to avoid a double play on Albert Pujols' sharp grounder. ... La Russa said the instant production was the result of Holliday's "hard work." Others could chalk it up to talent. Perhaps it was the pants. They'll be back Sunday. "I would think so," Holliday said. "You don't change up (after) a win." See also the previous Man Stew 2011 installment: http://www.vivaelbirdos.com/2011/6/7/2210828/man-stew-2011-vs-the-injury-bug
