MLB: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

The nihilist on me wants it all blown up. I hate to argue, especially with myself, and those are the most Universal voices, so they’ve held sway. Last week we let entropy take over. Today we embrace the chaos, and this week we sink our teeth into that attempted B-Team drubbing of, and eventual victory over, the Cardinals and would prefer to have the meatloaf served cold, with a coke.

Today’s the last game of a very trying season. I dunno about you, but I’m done watching baseball for the year. I don’t have any fan stake in any team in the playoffs and not so much interest to bank on, either. Yadi Yadi yadda yadda.
