Case in point.If you have access to the MLB video archives go to the game on Aug. 22, 2011 and watch the exchange between TLR and Carp when TLR comes to get him. This was the first of the games where the Cards were swept by the Dodgers. The low point of the season. Carp is winning 1-0 at this point. It really looks like Carp has had enough of TLR's BS and is telling him so. I wonder if this is what TLR is referring to as stuff he began to take personally.

It has to be.
When he goes into the HOF it will
I'm sure the number will be reserved for scrappy white middle infielders until that day comes, however.
I think it should always be available to scrappy middle infielders.

I defy anyone to find me a bigger [expletive] than Buzz Bissinger. I'll give him this, though: He's a pretty gifted writer for a 12 year old.

buzz bissinger's take
What a [expletive] face. Is this an article about Moneyball or about Tony? It's a shame Bissinger had to retreat directly up his own ass after writing Friday Night Lights, he was once good at it.

He seems quite good at being his own hemorrhoid.
