Cardinals show Yasiel Puig a thing or two

+ The Cardinals snuck another NLCS win by the Dodgers, this time 4-2, which put them up 3-1 in the series and one win away from the World Series. Matt Holliday’s ten mile home run in the third inning started things off, and Dodgers starter Ricky Nolasco showed that home run ball exactly what he thought of it.

+ The Cardinals snuck another NLCS win by the Dodgers, this time 4-2, which put them up 3-1 in the series and one win away from the World Series. Matt Holliday’s ten mile home run in the third inning started things off, and Dodgers starter Ricky Nolasco showed that home run ball exactly what he thought of it.

+ The dramatic thread, however, continued to be the Cardinals’ hurt feelings over Yasiel Puig’s clapping and bat-flipping yesterday, which led to this.

Cardinals starter Lance Lynn really showed Puig a thing or two about how to play the game the right way, and Puig indicated how sorry he was by knocking an RBI single on the next pitch.

+ Robert Pera owns the Memphis Grizzlies, and recently had his 1-on-1 challenge to Tony Allen canceled along with the $100,000 for charity it would have raised. Well, Pera is upping his game – or his challenges, at least.

Blah blah NBA team owner blah blah blah charity 1-on-1 game blah blah you know what comes next:

+ Matt Schaub of the Texans was naturally upset about the fans cheering his injury on Sunday, and expressed disappointment. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had his back, calling the act “sickening.” And if Ben Roethlisberger is calling you “sickening,” you really need to think about your life choices.

+ Colts owner Jim Irsay expressed disappointment that Peyton Manning only got him one Super Bowl Ring. This was followed by public outcry, a chastising from Broncos head coach John Fox, and a response on Twitter from Irsay which looks like it was written by a ten-year-old.
