So SBN wants to be Bleacher Report real bad. All righty, then. All my content posted on SBN will be gone by the end of this year. I'm not going to drive clicks on this site with my hard work.

Remember how I told you guys to get an option to save all the blog content with their comments? Oh, who's laughing now? Nobody.

We may have kicked up a lot of silt, but there were nuggets of baseball history there, and it's not like the Wayback Machine will save it all for your grandchildren.

- 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.)

Shelby Miller Has Ties to Brownwood Fan Who Died at Rangers Ballpark

I suspected it given the small town of Brownwood, and some recollections about Shelby's family background. The Millers were going to the Futures Game to see Shelby pitch, but canceled to attend the funeral.

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

Stan Musial Topic on Charlie Rose Airs Next Monday

Costas, McCarver, and the author of the new book Vecsey sit down with Charlie Rose on PBS. Apparently Channel 9 pre-empted it for fundraising. Now will air on Monday 1:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Albertofstan time.

Man Stew 2011 vs the Injury Bug

I laughed. I cried. I don't buy into the narrative, personally, but here are a pile of anecdotes from the Better Living Through Team Chemistry edition of the Cardinals. For instance: And Batista is explaining how they called a team meeting this year simply for backup catcher Gerald Laird to show off his new dance, "The Wetsuit." ...watching a John Wayne movie in his office?! Unbelievable.

Rites of Spring: Red Schoendienst Photos

I was just seized by the notion. How lucky are we to have all these Hall of Famers as fixtures in the clubhouse? I know Red is usually there at home games, but the sight of him patrolling his team is a welcome hallmark of Spring Training. Post-Dispatch is probably all from Chris Lee. A couple from Scott Rovak. 2011 advising Tony staying young; even Colby laughs What do you think of that contract, Tony? Whaddaya say, Mo? So, didn't work it out, huh? Guess I better get ready to hit cleanup. years past They should probably work out that contract. Well, sure, Skip, you can join my posse. Check out my ride, homies. When are you signing up with us, son? Post-Dispatch special album

Carpenter laughed. "He wouldn't let me off the phone. It was like 45 minutes of just nonsense."

Goold's Guide to Jupiter Spring Training

He sucks!! Oh, wait, it's probably because by the time you read this, the P-D will kill this link. Memorable for Waino, Franky, Skippy, and K-Mac's travel recommendations.

Holliday Wins DK Award; Albert and Waino Co-MenO'TheYear

Oh yeah, and we're doing what we always do, Pinky: roast Tony La Russa. "The major award winners are all confirmed to be in attendance. Pujols and pitcher Adam Wainwright will be honored as co-Men of the Year, both having finished second in the MVP and Cy Young award voting, respectively. Matt Holliday will receive the Darryl Kile Award, which is voted on by teammates and will be presented by last year's winner, Skip Schumaker. Also scheduled to receive recogniitions or awards are Jaime Garcia, Yadier Molina, Houston center fielder Michael Bourn, and the Cardinals' two organizational players of the year, Shelby Miller and Matt Carpenter." Matt Carpenter doesn't have an SBN tag. Is he real?
