Come on. I mean, seriously.
I can’t chime in yet – too many conflicting images of both apocalypse and ecstasy.
What happened to all of that crap about how impossible an 0-3 comeback might be? Don’t like it when the shoe’s on the other foot. Typical!
You have to brush up your reading comprehension skills. I NEVER said such a comeback was impossible. Improbable? Yes. Unlikely? Sure. IT WAS BOTH OF THOSE.
It still stands that such a comeback, however improbable, could happen for the Cardinals as well, and as a Sox fan (especially as a Sox fan) I am entitled to both of my visions.
Please rescind your attack.
The Cards are indeed a surprise, not that I’m complaining. At what point do you look to LaRussa?
And while I’m not a believer in “destiny” or the like, when your two best defensive plays are turned in by Papi and Sloppy…well, you start to wonder.
This St. Louis performance (or lack thereof) might go down as one of the worst WS efforts ever. I mean, if Wakefield doesn’t walk like twenty guys in a row in Game 1, that game isn’t even close, and the Cards didn’t sniff Schilling/Pedro/DLowe. Not even a little bit. Skull-clutcher baserunning blunders, their supposed MVP-troika batting a collective .133, never getting a lead, for Pete’s sake. The Sox were hot, for sure, but weren’t the Cards also, coming off the NLCS? What the hell happened? What a bizarre postseason this has been. But I don’t know how much of this you can put on LaRussa b/c his guys simply didn’t peform.
