Oh How The Mighty Have Fallen
I’m just going to go ahead and say it…the Cardinals look pathetic and have been depressing to watch for the past week. A week ago they had the best record in baseball. Now they have more players on the DL (see here), they’ve been on a six-game losing streak and their starting pitching has completely crumbled. The good news? Matt Holliday is back and looking sharp. Also, somehow, they are only one game out of first place in the NL Central. That’s about as good as it gets right now.
Chris Carpenter starts tonight so that is nothing to get excited about. Carp is having a down year, he’s past his prime and just has not been getting run support since the season began. Then again, maybe a great game by Carp and an explosion from the 3-4-5 hitters can get the Cardinals out of what Tony LaRussa calls their “funk.” Wow, with how much my mood is affected by the St. Louis Cardinals, I’m certainly happy I wasn’t raised as a Cubs fan. Just saying.
