Tough day with the Darryl Kile tragedy. Fox handled it quite well, keeping viewers updated while still showing all the action of the game. Tony Larussa appeared live with Joe Buck, who is still mourning his father, and was tearful and reflective. ESPNNews had live coverage of the press conferences of ones close to the situation. Cubs GM Andy McPhail, Cubs Manager Don Baylor and Cardinals GM Walt Jocketty were among those who spoke. Larry Walker was one of the most visibly distraught and went out and hit a homer and started tonight’s game 3-3. Ann Werner of ESPN did some really nice on location reporting in a tough situation. A totally professional, tasteful and somber effort.
You guys called us old, over. I read some of your pathetic articles and some of your lousy analysis. It’s opinion and obviously you don’t know what drives us. We thank y’all for those articles, appreciate it because it lit a fire under us. One of the hardest things I’ve always said in this league is to create chemistry.
