I apologize for the comment. I didn't mean they don't deserve respect at all. I was trying to make the point that what happened in the regular season doesn't matter anymore. A 98-win team obviously is loaded with talent, but playoff experience is huge.
Is there anyway i can change my username? I was thinking cards11in12 might be more fitting after tonight. Momentum has completely swung to the other side. These teams seem pretty equal to me now. Hopefully tomorrow night the the boys will bring their bats with them to the plate. Can't strike out 8 straight times and expect to win.
Good to see you back. I was concerned my over-reaction might have chased you. Anyone who wants to avoid Card fans can ignore you (please) but it is good to get someone knowledgeable about an opponent here.
I think I can understand why Lynn was in there. Thin bullpen, on the road, so let a quality pitcher who had been effective in game 2 go long, and if you get a lead, then Motte to close. Are people on Matheny for his bullpen management (again), or are they saying he's doing the best with a roster he's given?
