    I bet they will do the same for Ryan Braun and Nyjer Morgan when they retire.

    Who's that guy in the biege shirt they kept showing in the stands? Somebody famous?

      Why would anybody clap for a retiring career .270 hitting platoon player? Nobody will notice when he retires.

          ^ Except for the one in the Pujols name/number T-shirt that had the word 'VOID' plastered on it.

            I think that might have been Hugh Grant.

                I can't wait until his final plate appearance at CitiField.

                Whatever his past personal indescretions he has always struck me as a classy "old school" type of player.

                  "Smartest fans in baseball." STFU, Joe Buck. No fan base is superior to the rest.
                  Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                  If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                    It was a great gesture, all the more special because it was spontaneous.

                      Like with most things, Joe Buck is only repeating what he has heard somewhere.

                      It is unqualifiable and unquantifiable. Multiple cities have done this for great players on their way out many a times. Are St. Louis fans great and knowledgable? Sure. Openly acknowledging a great opposing player does speak well of a city, but any historically-established baseball locale will do it.

                        That may be true, but is sure is said by a whole lot of players, fans, managers and writers/announcers who come through here for some reason. The fans are doing something right, at least.
