Speaking of the home field advantage, did anyone else think it was ridiculous for Tony LaRussa to have the ability to make ANY important decisions in a game that "matters" now? If I work at McDonalds and then quit, they aren't letting me make the schedule for next week, are they? What would I care? LaRussa was probably throwing darts to set his lineup (flask in hand may or may not be optional in this scenario). He was on top of his game, though, when inserting a (Cardinals) third baseman into the game to play first base ahead of an actual (Cubs) first baseman.
LaRussa's favoritism aside, I thought it was a fun game. Below are three of my favorite moments.
3. Prince Fielder
It's been a while since I ripped on the Fresh Prince of Detroit, but did you see him trying to scoop up Derek Jeter's throw on that awesome play in the first inning? The smile on Jeter's face was not because this was a fun exhibition game. He was trying to hold back from laughing as hard as I was!
2. Hybrids make us stupid?
Guys. This woman forgets how to put GAS in her CAR. Apparently she's had a hybrid since 1972 and has never had to fill it up.
