Forgiveness Is The Only Option

The only option to deal with all the pains and crazy moments on hand is forgiveness. I originally wrote this post on the King of St Louis page but have decided to post it on here as well. This tale of two giants is a simple and yet sweet result of being quick to forgive.

Armando Galarraga – Jim Joyce – MLB – King of St Louis – Scott

I love ‪#‎JimJoyce‬ and Armando‬ Galarraga.

A story of a very talented pitcher who had a perfect game blown by the call of a very talented ump. The pitcher was quick to forgive. The two went on to write a book together, super homies.

The blown call and a ‘hero of town’ reaction, a smile:

If Trevor Rosenthal was a king he definitely would have one of the best "ARMies" in St Louis.

Still The St Louis King

I was out on a jolly taunt online and found a nasty rumor that someone dethroned your royal highness but I assure you that I am still the King of St Louis.

If Trevor Rosenthal was a king he definitely would have one of the best "ARMies" in St Louis.

If Trevor Rosenthal was a king he definitely would have one of the best “ARMies” in St Louis.

The above picture comes from a year old article by stlcardinalbaseball.com. The article describes how rough the Cardinal closer Trevor Rosenthal’s season was in 2014, the year of our Lord. What the aged periodical would never know is that he would go on to have a huge 2015 season. He tied the saves record for the St Louis Cardinals at 48. To be fair, unlike that mean ol’ article, 2014 was still an impressive season since he finished with 45 saves.
I have a feeling with my blessing that in 2016, Rosenthal will have 99 saves (and a loss ain’t one) and can truly still be mistaken as a king.

 

 

If you wanna watch how royal his arm is check out loads for videos on MLB.com.
Congratulations on being insanely talented Mr Trevor Rosenthal.

 

Your humble regional king,

King of St Louis.
