Time is running out

Why can’t the Cardinals just win?  Come on.  If they had played even halfway decent lately, we could easily be in first place right now.  Instead, we’re still four games back of 2 teams and riding a 6 game losing streak.  It’s enough to make you lose your mind.  The Cardinals have got to win this game against the Reds to avoid falling any further behind.  A win here would put them no more than 4 back and possibly less, depending on the outcome of the Cubs game (the Brewers are off today) and still within striking distance.

The problem is, there is less and less time for striking.  The Redbirds must get hot and must get hot right now.  Sitting 4 games in back of Chicago, a sweep of the Cubbies this weekend, would have us tied with them.  Not to mention the 3 game set against the Brewers next week.  That’s what’s keeping us in this hunt.  We get to play 7 games against the team we’re chasing.  Our destiny is in our hands.  Let’s go out and get it!

Avoid the sweep,

Tiffany

    Hi, Tiffany. Time for my token appearance on your weblog. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Recall the Dublin study junket I told you I was on? Yup, final paper due Monday! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I would just like to say that I finished my journeys and arrived home safely (well, obviously). You know, the night I got to Sevilla, I went to one of the bars that I had recalled showed baseball, yet this time, they weren’t showing anything, and I was kind of far from the other places. I was already into quite a bit of drinking, so I decided not to keep looking for a game. Sure enough, that night was Clay Buchholz’ no-no! By the time I checked my email in the afternoon (in BCN), I saw a message from my father, who told me, “I guess he’s not going back to Pawtucket, eh?” And to think, I missed it. Oh well.

    It was one of the quickest no-hitters to start a career, but unfortunately, he’s not in great company. Wilson รlvarez also pitched one in his second start, and someone who pitched in St. Louis, Bobo Holloman, threw one in his first start, although he pitched for the Brownies, and like other Brownies of that era, his career didn’t amount to much. Here’s hoping Clay Buchholz’ career ends up better than the other guys I cited!

    I would like to say that I greatly enjoyed being in your presence that night. I hope everything worked out with getting back to the ‘Burbs. It was one of the highlights of my getaway. In all honesty, the highlight was the extra day I spent in Barceloneta, as I wandered the (Euro-style!) beaches after getting sick that morning and missing my flight back to Dublin. So, essentially, I made chicken salad out of chicken…well, doody. ๐Ÿ˜€ It made my trip home more of a tight squeeze, but it was one h-e-double hockey sticks of a place to get stranded.

    Well, anyway, I hope everything is well back over there. I wish I could still be there, but, well, duty calls. I hope you enjoy yourself in the best way possible, and I will try to stay in touch as best as I can.

    All the best,

    Eric

    I said it would be OK if the Cards ran the table after leaving Phoenix. Certainly, taking 4 from the Cubs would have been nice. But you all couldn’t do it.

    I think it’s the bad karma created when TLR left Byrnesie off the All-Star team and then compounded his error by leaving Albert Pujols on the bench with the game, and WS home field advantage, on the line.

    Eric,
    I couldn’t believe it when he threw that no-hitter. Incredible. Even if it was a Red Sox pitcher. Good luck getting everything done.

    Cubs0110,

    Hmmm. It certainly was an exciting series with pitching duels, late-inning comebacks or at least comeback attempts. However, with the Cardinals dropping 3 of 4….it’s a series I hope to forget.

    Kellia,

    Bad karma or something. All I know is that this series pretty much sealead our fate to sit out this October. Perhaps your D-backs can do better.

    It was a nice series, The Cards definitely played us hard…

    I hope you guys can pass up the brewers for second place, I can’t stand them!

    Cubs0110,
    I would love to pass the Brewers, but only if it means passing the Cubs too. I’m a Cardinal fan first and second I’m a fan of whoever plays the Cubs.
