St. Louis Cardinals
Had something keeping you away from watching sports? Well, if you did, shame on you, because watching sports is the most important thing in the world. Because we care, though, we’re still going to keep you up to date on what you missed, so you’re not hurt too badly by your gross negligence. After the jump, what to take away from last night in sports. You’re very welcome.
By now, you’ve probably read all about the controversy from last night St. Louis Cardinals-Atlanta Braves game involving questionable use of the infield fly rule. Come to find out, we should have been prepared for this sort of incident all along.

It’s no mystery so many of their peers are, and were, happy to see Chipper Jones and Bobby Cox retire. You know, because they terrorized their teams for so long. So it begs the question: which Brave made life more of a living hell for opposing clubs? Let’s examine – by way of the retirement gifts each received from opponents – after the jump.
Catchers have thick skin â€” it comes with the territory of playing the gruffest position in baseball. But they also have thick equipment, and that comes with the territory of occasionally having to absorb a hit at home plate in the name of saving face (and a run) for your team. Yadier Molina did that Tuesday night, straining his upper back, shoulder, and neck in the process.
It’s a tough divide to bridge, the one between Cubs and White Sox fans. They’ve shared the same city for over a century. North Side vs. South Side. You need something they can really bond over. Last night, Conan tried to provide it. Did the show succeed?
