Mark McGwire: Cardinals pinch hitter

0 Comments

Mark McGwire may not change anyone’s mind about his Hall of Fame case simply by talking, but what if he hits a pinch hit home run to win the 2010 NLCS?  Tony La Russa:

“If we’re in contention,
we’ll put him on the roster Aug. 31. It’s a nice little dream.  Is it likely? Probably not. I
don’t think it’s a zero possibility. The point is, you’ll see him in
spring training. He won’t be leaning on the batting cage chatting it
up. He’ll work his (butt) off, and hitters will be thrilled he’s there
helping them.”

Well, I actually do think it’s zero possibility, but it would fun to see it happen if only to watch 76.3% of the BBWAA’s heads explode in fury.
