Baseball is just like life. Probably why we like it so much. You can do everything perfect and things can still go wrong. To me the big story is the character of Galarraga and Joyce. Both men are on the top of my list for how I want my kids to grow up. If I were God (which of course i'm not) I'd be smiling from ear to ear.
The standing O that Joyce got tonight causes me to believe that Tiger fans saw the big picture.

Everyone knows you will be tested upon winning a stage. So why do it? Because 99% of the time, your doctor has it right and you won’t get caught. The long list of those caught point to mistakes made by the “lab”. I say the doctors are human and they make mistakes too. Doctor mistake = positive test.

Driving a zamboni while under the influence is a skill only a few have acquired. Clearly a post graduate achievement.

Hablaing Espanol is when you go to a Mexican resterant for breakfast and order eggs by saying "quero juevos". Now that'll get you in trouble.

I'll bet you can't get four guys to hit 4 in a row in batting practice. Ever.

The judge should have his neck broken along with the brain damaged voters that elected him.

How bout this, Team A won a game that Team B was playing in and walking a hitter is a perfectly acceptable strategy in baseball. It doesn’t take much coaching to win a game by 8 runs but in a one run game coaching is often the difference. Explain to the kids that coach A took a chance that paid off. Team B played well and kept the game close. They are 10 years old and will get another chance.
