Last night’s game was an improvement but, in the end, a loss is a loss. Seven games is seven games. So instead of finding a bright side or avoiding feeling down, let’s forget it and take a look back at better times this season.
We know the Cardinals are capable of playing well. They have, they will and these can remind us of that.
Maybe the new month can end one streak and start another. Hopefully …
April 13 was a very good game.
That 9-run inning off Matt Cain was pretty fun … and so was that 7-run inning almost two months later.
Remember when Shelby was nearly perfect?
Next, a series of photos that remind us the Cardinals can (and have) hit home runs — and we certainly miss the receiving line.
And here’s a reminder of what does happen at the end of victorious games.
Once upon a time, a million years ago, I was a Cubs fan. And in one of their typically disappointing seasons, 1985, they had a 13-game losing streak during the summer that just put me in a worse and worse mood every day. I also still remember the day they ended the streak — Harry Caray began the broadcast by chanting “Today is the day! Today is the day!” over and over.
So, today is the day! Today is the day — the day this streak ends, the day for a win. For one thing, it’s Tara’s birthday. She deserves it! (Happy birthday, Tara!)
For another, how can we not trust this guy to get the job done?
Game time is 6:05 p.m. Central Time, with Charlie Morton starting against Joe.
Today is the day!
