This is a case of “Let the buyer beware.” I am an avid baseball fan, and living in St. Louis, my favorite team is the St. Louis Cardinals. On of my favorite players – well ex-player now, is Jim Edmonds who played centerfield for the Cardinals from 2000 to 2008. Solast December my youngest daughter and her boyfriend wanted to get me a Jim Edmonds jersey for Christmas. I didn’t want them to shell out the $100.00 or so dollars from the team store so I hopped on line and found this. $30.00 sounded like a good deal and the fact that the shipping and handling was $20.00 didn’t set off any warning bells (it should have though), because what I actually received was a Philadelphia Phillies Roy Halladay jersey. So, I got it touch with the seller and after exchanging 5-6 emails the upshot was that I would need to pay more money to get the item I ordered – with no guarantee that I would actually get the item I ordered. I have no interest in throwing good money after bad and contented myself with reporting the company to the BBB and the Attorney General for the State of Missouri (not that I think either of those actions will do any good).
If anybody is interested in buying the jersey let me know, it is $50.00 – although that is somewhat negotiable.
Edit to add: I forgot to include pictures:

I can’t resist this legendary bit of baseball lore!

Strangely enough, the sun is out this morning in St. Louis (no that is not a metaphor, we finally have some sunshine after a week of clouds and rain). The Cheerful Oncologist has some great pictures (Celebrate!) and Orac links to a well written explanation of what when wrong from the point of view of a Tigers fan…

Orac has the goods on some stupid statements, about the stem cell ammendment here in Missouri, by the starting pitcher (Jeff Suppan) in tonights World Series Game. Clearly, the Tigers have sicked their supernatural, brain munching furher on Jeff Suppan. How else do you explain the correlation between Tigers games and the Hitler Zombie’s (shudder) attacks? I’m sure if the Tigers win there will be an orgy of brain munching activity the likes of which the world has never seen…Prevent the apocalypse, root for the Cardinals!
Yeah, I know it’s a weak defense, but really this was a mind bogglingly stupid thing for Suppan to claim, because as Orac points out the bill clearly states the following:
(1) No person may clone or attempt to clone a human being.
(2) No human blastocyst may be produced by fertilization solely for the purpose of stem cell research.

Get over it. The game is over and the Tigers won. Best thing for the Cardinals to do is to hush and to take two out of three in St. Louis and one of the remaining two in Detroit – thus winning the series in seven. Chronically whinning about it is only going to piss the Tigers off and make it harder for the Cardinals to win (which they will) the series…Remember, this is not 1985…

Well, we almost pulled it off. Bases loaded with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. One run already across (why was Edmonds batting 6th?). Tigers dodged a bullet. The series is now tied at 1-1, which does not change my hypothesis of the Cardinals winning the Series in seven…Homefield advantage for the next three games doesn’t hurt my theory either…

Fans of the Tigers are, of course, in denial. It will be the Cardinals in seven!
