Very soon after Albert Pujols' 3-run bomb to win Game 5 of the NLCS, Bob Brenly could not wait to start praising David Eckstein for "not giving up" and hitting a dribbler to the left side.
Then, on Sportcenter, John Kruk made sure to give Eckstein credit, as well.
We get it. He's small.
** CORRECTION **
Thanks to many readers for pointing out that something stupid was said NOT by Tim McCarver, who was mercifully nowhere near a broadcast booth last night. It was, in fact, the Brennaman-Lyons-Brenly team. I will happily acknowledge that the instant I heard something that made me angry, I assumed it was McCarver.
John Kruk remains culpable.
