Joe Strauss has finally written a brief article – a blurb, really – praising Skip’s play at second base. Then, he followed it up with a statement on Bernie’s radio show that this was “by far Skip’s best defensive day.”
Interesting…because by all accounts, Skip pulled Pujols nearly off the bag on his one double play, and then looked awkward on his “sprawling” dive. Don’t get me wrong…I’m glad Strauss is getting off Skip’s back…just curious what caused the change. It’s quite a bit different than his previous stance.
Hmmm…maybe Cards ‘N Stuff has some pull…? Doubtful. Maybe ‘ol Joey finally realized how hard he was slammin’ the guy just because he didn’t like the idea of being wrong to thousands of fans.
Ah well…whatever the reason, let’s hope it lasts. Joe’s a good reporter with a lot of pull. I would hate to see him on the wrong side of this issue just because of pride.
