When someone gets traded for a bucket of baseballs and proceeds to blow up bigger than Cee-Lo Green on The Voice, it raises a few eyebrows.  With no consideration for circumstance, it's hard to blame the Cardinals for handing Matt Adams to the Braves for a player whose name probably escapes you.  But after you [...]

Happy to report Father's Day was very relaxing, even if the Cardinals were on TV when we got to the restaurant.
