Hey, Cardinals. We know it’s been a rough weekend in Chicago, and an even worse road trip. It’s been rough on us too.
So tonight is at least your chance to salvage a game against the Cubs. Yes, the Brewers have already won today — of course they have — so you’re not going to gain any ground in the Central. But at least you can avoid falling another game back. That’s at least something. Right?
And, for no other reason, win tonight so Chris doesn’t have to be taunted tomorrow at work by the “Cubs fan” who only pays attention when they play the Cards and couldn’t name the Cubs starting infielders for a million dollars. Besides, how can she show off the new Ryan Theriot bobblehead she acquired if the Cubs sweep?
(Ryan, the Fan Club will love you
all the more for a huge game tonight.)
So, that’s about it — just win tonight and we’ll go from there. Simple. Easy. We know you guys can do it.
Besides, it will be a lot more fun to have this live game thread if we have positive things happening on the field.
Do it for us.
Thanks and all our love (for the moment, anyway),
Chris, Miranda and Tara
