WASHINGTON -- Doesn't matter how bad things look for the St. Louis Cardinals. Trailing by a bunch, down to their last strike, they simply stay calm and do what it takes to win. Erasing an early six-run hole in Game 5 slowly but surely, the defending World Series champion Cardinals got a tying two-out, two-run single from Daniel Descalso and a go-ahead two-run single from Pete Kozma in the ninth inning and came all the way back to beat the Washington Nationals 9-7 Friday night and win their NL division series.

I was rooting for the Nationals BUT I love it when the "closer" blows a game. And by babying Strasbrg (at least keep him on the roster for relieving) they deserved to lose.

Great comeback by the Cards. Nationals really did blow it with Strasburg. If you're going to limit him, limit him in April and May so he's there in October. Oh and don't let him pitch in the All-Star game.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Oh, man, am I depressed. I've been very impressed with the Nationals, and I loathe the Cardinals (mainly because of that obnoxious buffoon Tim McCarver). They wouldn't even be there if not for the money-grab-by-MLB wild-card playoff game added this year. I'm sorry, Nationals. You deserved better.

I must add that I don't know that I've ever heard of a team benching an excellent pitcher for the playoffs. Seriously? Were they TRYING to lose? Straaaaaaaange.

Yes, it's a good night here in the St. Louis area!

The TBS announcers, though, showed the Nationals almost as much favoritism as Martha Radditz.

Well, not quite that much.

If any US Ryder Cup fans are also Nationals fans, put them under observation.

Those are some shocks to the system.

When you get the other guys down to their last strike -- more than once -- you really should win.

#6: No Yankees fan here, but Raul Ibanez's Game 3 home runs deserve praise.

The sports media and advertisers have to be relieved there's no Orioles/Nats world series.

The Yanks have a big problem going forward with the benching of ARod.

ARod took the benching like a pro and a team player. His attitude about it even impressed me and that's saying a LOT. As for the Nats, I was pulling for them cuz I can't stand the Cards. Go Yanks!

I don't care for tim mccarver either. He's a blowhard. But he hasn't played for St. Louis in 40 years. To smear the red birds with mccarver is like carrying a grudge against the tigers because they employed denny mcclain.

Fertility doctors aim to
lower rate of twin births
Associated Press, by Marilynn Marchione    Original Article
Posted By: Fosterdad- 12/2/2013 1:42:44 PM     Post Reply
Boston — Doctors are reporting an epidemic — of twins. Nearly half of all babies born with advanced fertility help are multiple births, new federal numbers show. In the five years since the "Octomom" case, big multiple births have gone way down but the twin rate has barely budged. Twins aren´t always twice as nice; they have much higher risks of prematurity and serious health problems. Now fertility experts are pushing a new goal: One. A growing number of couples are attempting pregnancy with just a single embryo, helped by new ways to pick the ones most likely to succeed.

£30,000 gone now taxpayers are to

The row over where to bury Richard III has cost the taxpayer nearly £30,000 so far and the bill is set to rise. The Government’s decision to inter the king in Leicester cathedral has been challenged in the High Court by the Plantagenet Alliance, formed by a distant relative of Richard. Even if the alliance loses its battle to have Richard buried in York, the taxpayer will still have to foot all the Government’s legal bills because Mr Justice Haddon-Cave has granted the group a protective costs order. Those costs are set to rise when the case returns to court

Manchester, IL -- Authorities are investigating the slayings of five people whose bodies were found in a housing complex in the tiny Scott County community of Manchester. A 6-year-old girl in the home was injured. A man, who got into a shootout with police during a brief car chase, also is dead, Illinois State Police announced at a brief news conference in Manchester, 50 miles west of Springfield, late this morning. The victims were found early Wednesday morning after a 6-year-old girl in the home called 911 about 4:30 a.m., said Illinois State Police Lt. Col. Todd Kilby.

´Filthy 13´ leader, model for ´Dirty Dozen,´
dies in Chatham

Springfield, IL - Jake McNiece was gone before we even knew he was here. His name might not resonate with you. It didn’t with me until I heard that he had died. After that, it didn’t take long to learn Jake’s story. It’s worth learning. In a nutshell, he was the real-life model for Lee Marvin’s character in the 1967 movie “The Dirty Dozen.” Jake, 93, died in Chatham on Monday.(Snip) The actual group of WWII soldiers the movie is based on was called The Filthy Thirteen. They were rounders — not murderers and psychopaths, as Hollywood portrayed them, but brawlers and no respecters of authority.

Gov. Pat Quinn Tuesday terminated the state’s contract covering members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union. Calling the move unprecedented in the 40-year history of state employee labor contracts, AFSCME issued a statement saying the termination has “little immediate practical effect, as all existing terms and conditions of employment remain in place under state law.”

If you visit Qik-n-EZ stores in Springfield, Lincoln, Pana, Shelbyville or Bloomington, you’ll see Clay Evers’ heart and soul perched near the cash register. That would be his Bacon Brownie, an individually wrapped square of fudgy goodness studded with three strips of chopped applewood-smoked bacon and sprinkled with sea salt. It sells for $2.49. “I call it a Ford truck. It’s made for the working man,” said Evers, 43, a former lobbyist, video producer and pig farmer. His family has farmed in Greenview for five generations.

Springfield’s budget director says the city is out of options to be reimbursed for expenses associated with hosting then-Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign stop in the fall of 2008. “Short of suing the campaign, which isn’t really going to do anything — it would drag on forever — there’s really nothing we can do,” said Bill McCarty. “We’ve tried.” Obama introduced his running mate, Joe Biden, at the Old State Capitol in August 2008. About 160 police officers and nine civilians helped provide protection for Obama’s visit, according to an invoice from the city.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
