A Cardinal? that means to me
those Senate hearings Â just to see
McGwire’s pathetic pose
‘The past? Â Gosh, no one knows
as Sammy says, Â just let it be.’
The Odyssey over, I-75 beckons, a thousand miles and moreâ€¦Â Sirius consoles, a conduit to MLB live baseball and the Braves.
â€¦thereâ€™s a shameful fear of the Cardinals in this car – Â where it comes from Iâ€™m trying to defineâ€¦it likely started at that World Series a couple of years ago, games 6 and 7, when heroic last minute deeds poured on top of each otherâ€¦players youâ€™d barely heard of came through in the clutch and not just onceâ€¦amazing stuff, thrilling to watch whosever shirt you wearâ€¦our man Elvis as shell shocked as the rest of the Texansâ€¦
Then thereâ€™s their RISP numbers this yearâ€¦ goodÂ Godâ€¦did someone make them up?Â And Molina – which one I have no idea and could care less â€“ he and Posey the stuff of nightmaresâ€¦ and Wainwright, we gave him away and now heâ€™s pretty good they sayâ€¦are they smart? Â With Pujols they were VERY smartâ€¦so weâ€™ll seeâ€¦
Shall we compare them now, the way they play
To prior teams so very profligate
No Coleman here to steal our hearts away
No Musial to presuppose our fate.
â€˜tis often not the Cardinal who wins
And all too soon his chances may be dimmed
By Gattis and the neo Upton twins
Those masters of the fickle Georgia wind.
Then our eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose remembrance of that game they owe
Nor shall they boast we wander in their shade
When to the infield fly again they go
As long as Braves fight on and bloggers cry
So long we know weâ€™ll have another try.
game notes via Sirius…
finally worked out how the damn thing worked, joined Â game in third Braves leading 2/1…need i say Molina got theirs, CJ and Minor our rbi’s…all the scoring in the second…Minor on a roll…2 hits, 7 innings, just over 100 pitches…
BMac doubled first AB, scored, deep fly ball out his second….
fabulous catch by Jason in the middle innings…neither Upton can come in on a line drive without looking horrible, he can…Mr. Glass, eh? Â ask Mr. Met about that…Topped that off with a homer to left center, love it when he goes that way…Braves 3/1…
Cardinals helped greatly around this time throwing the ball away twice…Braves 4/1…
also around then Andrelton guilty of atrocious bunt when Fredi called a suicide squeeze…the bunt was so bad, popped up so high, the runner had time to turn round and get back to third safely…i will defend this young man to the death against the haters but never his bunting deficiencies, absolutely no excuse…
FF, Golden Sombrero if i heard it right…Wow…first one? i remember JHey with 5 in LA a couple of years ago…SO embarrassed was he…
Walden very impressive 8th – 1,2,3… Kimbrel walked one, struck out most of the others, no sweat, save 28 i think…
very good all round win by the Braves against the team with the best numbers all over in Baseball…first game i have heard in years on the radio, did they really say the crowd was 51,000?? fantastic…FWIW the recent yammering here about Sutton i quite disagree with – if you don’t hear any inflection in that voice when he’s on Â PBP get those ears checked…
what a win, we beat the Cardinals.
