He's probably on drugs too

Two runs, and only one earned? Nine strikeouts? From this guy? Naw. Can't be true.
Jeff (stinking) Weaver and the barely over .500 Cardinals are three outs from winning the World Series. Jim Leyland deprived us of seeing Kenny (cheater) Rodgers pitch one last time and extend his scoreless streak by rubbing "dirt" on his palms. He went with one of his young guns, Verlander, and he imploded. Dumb move, Jim. That's why you're losing this game (and the series).
Thank God this is just about over. Ratings-wise, this is one of the worst World Series ever.
Let's get some New York teams in there next year, okay?
