I no longer enjoy watching this team. Ever since last years sweep, I find myself caring less and less about this team. Last year's pathetic disaster moves their remarkable recent playoff record to 0-9.
Now they not only lose, but they also lost for some amount of time their two best players in the process. The great left-handed hitter that was so desperately needed is sitting out and collecting millions in the process, it seems to me he's the same Milton Bradley he's always been.
This team has no "ace" Their closer has a bum knee, and their best hitter may go on the DL with a strained calf muscle.
It is very obvious to me that the Cardinals are the best team in the division. They are far better than the Cubs in every position except third base and left field.
This team's manager makes decisions based on anger and the fact that the person "pitches" using his left arm.
St. Louis could have the left side of the infield consisting of Neifi Perez and Enrique Wilson, and a bullpen with 2008 Bob Howry and Roberto Novoa and they would still be a good team.
No longer do I find joy in watching this team. I get extremely bitter and angry when they lose and I really don't care when they win because I just know I will see another 3 and out come October.
I wish nothing but the best for all who read and post on this site, and I thank Al for keeping up such a great site.
