08:21 AM ET 05.16 | Tempers flared again Sunday between the Cardinals and Reds, thanks in some part to Francisco Cordero. Cordero said Cardinals backup catcher Gerald Laird was the main voice, complaining because Cordero had hit superstar Albert Pujols on the left wrist -- with an 0-2 pitch -- in the ninth inning. Pujols represented the tying run. "Just a little fun," Cordero said. "I think it was because I hit Pujols 0-2, Gerald Laird was all loud in the dugout. ... Out of all the guys that are great hitters, great players, Gerald Laird doesn't even play. He's the one yelling at me because I hit Pujols 0-2. 0-2! I wasn't trying to hit him. I've got to face [Matt] Holliday next, who can take the lead with one swing, and he's yelling at me. All I know is he was loud, so I said something back to him."

Morning ChiSoxFan. This must be a slow news day though I thought Posada would have been good for another thread.

Well, I don't suppose I'd hit a .260 hitter with a .400 slugging percentage to face a guy hitting .379 with a sp near .600. Maybe that's just me.

Morning all, left London and the sunny and 70 degrees to come back here to weather associated with London.


Makes sense to me....
