Matheny announces Craig will be on World Series roster

(KSDK Sports) -- The Cardinals announced today thatfirst basemanAllenCraig will be on the World Series roster .

Yes, the same Craig that had 97 RBI, and was hitting a major-league leading .454 with runners in scoring position Sept. 4 when he suffered a sprained left foot.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale said, "The Cardinalsactually have the edge at DH: There's no advantage this time for the Red Sox, because the Cardinals' DH happens to be Allen Craig."

On Sunday, Craig declared that he is back, and certainly looked it in the batting cage, spraying the ball to all fields against his teammates, and running fine to first base.

"I'm not a doctor,'' Craig said, "but I feel like I timed it pretty well with the World Series starting this week. I'm starting to feel better.''

What's Your Body Type



You may have heard it said that all men are created equal. As lovely as that thought is, it just isnt true. The men that first made that suggestion might have been better suited to say that all men deserve the same opportunity (even if they are women), but that is another discussion entirely. The fact remains that despite how some people try to convince us otherwise, we are all different. There is no such thing as one size fits all.

If you have been in the fitness world long enough you come to realize that some things may come easier to you than

Minimal Time Training

Time is precious - for some, training 6-8 times a week is entirely do-able. Not everyone however, has the circumstances to do this. Does that mean that fewer sessions mean worthless results? No way! Primarily, this article is designed to appeal to persons with 3 days a week or less to train but all the techniques and exercises can be used by anyone for their own programme. Great results can be achieved via increasing speed, strength and muscle mass with these programs. While training with fewer workouts is not necessarily going to turn you into an Olympian gold medallist, the workout efficiency is very high and the results can be excellent.

Vatican takes a modern approach to exorcism and the devil, author says

When veteran Vatican journalist John Thavis interviewed exorcists for his new book, many said right off that exorcism was nothing at all like the movie.

These American and Italian priests were referring to the 1973 movie The Exorcist made from William Peter Blattys novel, which was based on a St. Louis event.

In the late 1940s, Saint Louis University Jesuits professors Father William S. Bowdern and his assistant Father Walter Halloran performed the Catholic rite of exorcism on a young boy (a girl in the movie) at SLUs DuBourg Hall and Alexian Brothers Hospital.

When I talked to exorcists theyd say it is not like the movie, then, after about 10 minutes of saying most were

Siblings reunite at Lambert after 60 years

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KSDK) - It was an emotional sibling reunion at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport Tuesday.

Gloria Gonzalez lives in Fairview Heights, but is originally from Cuba. Her sister came to visit from Cuba on Tuesday, and they haven't seen each other in 60 years.

"Oh I never would have recognized you. You recognized me, but I didn't recognize you. You said Cook-ah and that's the name you used to call me, Cook-cah," said Gloria.

Her sister has a five year visa so she hopes this will be one of many visits.

Recipe: Healthy & Speedy Minestrone Soup



There are as many varieties of Minestrone (literally "BIG SOUP") as there are people who cook it. My version is is created with speedy preparation in mind and avoids using pasta substituting Pearl Barley as the thickener, though wholemeal pasta can be used if you prefer. Also avoided are the use of chicken stock or stock cubes instead adding salt and lots of ground pepper directly. You can easily add/remove vegetables and pulses as availability and taste dictate.



Ingredients 4 large carrots 1 large onion 2 medium leeks 4 sticks celery 2x 400g tinned tomatoes 1x 400g tinned mixed beans 120g dried pearl barley 2 teaspoons sea salt flakes (or any salt) 1 teaspoon ground white pepper 1 teaspoon ground black pepper Any fresh vegetables you like (e.g. runner beans)

Arnold Shoulder Workout

Arnold Schwarzenegger had great shoulders, he had shape, striations and size. Many gym gooers want to build boulder shouders just like Arnold but focus on shape and striations. If you really want to build big shoulders you must concentrate on building the size of your deltoids and gaining muscle mass. Follow these three tips king sized boulder shoulders.

For building muscle I generally stick to the 8-12 rep range, for most bodyparts this is considered the optimal rep range for muscle growth (except for legs which I believe respond better to a slightly higher rep range). However, sometimes muscles respond better when they are subjected to extra heavy weight - for example a weight in which you can do a maximum of 5-6 reps. I would suggest going heavy on overhead press movements only, keep front raises and lateral raises to 8-12 reps or even higher.

Going heavy doesn't mean that you have to go all out on every set, for example if you do 5 sets I would recommend doing 2 sets with lighter weights that you can do 8-12 reps then follow that with 3 sets with heavy weights with 5-6 reps.

One of the biggest problems I see people make when they are training shoulders is they don't vary the workouts enough. Yeah they might switch front raises and lateral raises with different angles, cables and duumbbells - but for the biggest moves like overhead presses they stick to barbells and dumbbells. There are so many versions of overhead presses that you should consider adding to your workout such as Arnold press, overhead smith machine press, behind the neck press, (with either a barbell or a smith machine) and standing milatary presses.

Drop sets or supersets are great with front raises, lateral raises and rear delt raises. However, for overhead press movements the rest-pause technique is one of my prefered techniqes for promoting new muscle growth. The rest-pause technique is great because you don't have change the weight throughout the set. For example to perform this technique use a smith machine with a weight that you can do overhead presses for 6-7 reps. Now start by doing a set of 4-5 reps then stop and rest for 15 seconds, then do another 2-3 reps then rest another 15 seconds, finally perform a final 2-3 reps. By now you will have performed 8-11 reps. So give it a try on your next shoulder workout.
