St. Louis lost a World Series game when Koji Uehara tossed a ball to Mike Napoli to pick off a Cardinal. It's been over a month since Lance Berkman last took an at-bat. The Cowboys found a new and entertaining way to keep Jon Daniels out of the DFW limelight after he sent legendary Texans to their nursing homes. We were so close to a perfect day.
Barry Horn writes that the era of Emily Jones leaving Rangers Captain's severed head in Yorvit Torrealba's bed or Darren O'Day seeing how many times he can slip "meow" into a conversation are over because Jones is moving on from Fox Sports Southwest.
Lastly, we've probably missed a golden opportunity to stage a LSB get-together at the Rangers Ballpark Flashlight Fright ballpark tour.
Find out what lurks under the ballpark after dark in our special night-time tour of the ballpark led completely by flashlights.
