Just wanted to say that we were in Houston Friday night when it all went down and there were quite a few Rangers fans there in addition to a ton of Astros fans who I know hate the Cardinals, and while our cheering table of Cards fans certainly got a side eye or two, we had no problems with any of the fans at the bar -- Classy and sportsmanlike all around, so thanks Texas!

And Mizzou won in OT? And the Rams beat the Saints? How did this all happen? Best weekend for MO sports team fans in my memory!! Makes being at work here on this Monday morning almost bearable.

Almost.

9 a.m. news conference -- I imagine it's Tony saying he's staying, but who knows? Maybe Yadi? If it were Albert it would have already leaked I'm sure.

Also TLR is on Letterman tonight!

I was a bit surprised at Tony's retirement announcement, though not surprised in a way. I figured he'd retire soon, so why not now, and go out on top?

I don't know that I'm entirely surprised by the news, but it woulda been nice if they could have waited another couple days, I guess. We're all still revelling, and now I suddenly feel stone cold sober and rather depressed!

Sad to see TLR go, but he is off on a high note. Did anyone go to the parade yesterday? I heard every single metrolink lot was full. It was amazing to see downtown painted in Red.

I'm anticipating a lot of other people could leave along with Tony. Albert Pujols IMO just became that much more likely not to return. Same thing with Dave Duncan and Mark McGwire. I'm hoping Jose Oquendo will take over this job. It would be a real shame to see this team dismantled after winning it all. I really hope we don't end up going the way Florida went after its last World Series victory. That said, I'm sad Tony retired, but he gave us a good 15 years...that's long by any stretch. We reached the NLCS many of those years, made three World Series, and won two of them. Very fine achievement for a manager.

I wonder if Albert Pujols would like to wear a Texas Rangers uniform?! Wow, what a baseball player. Still can't believe one of my Rangers' pitchers did NOT walk Pujols when he had the chance. Sheesh. Even sitting at home in Texas, I knew not to pitch to Pujols at the point in the game (late inning of game). All of Texas was saying, "Noooo, don't pitch to Pujols right now!" Great player!
