O.K. the nasty thunderstroms we had here in the east over the last few days are over and the Cardinal flag is back out.All is right in the world and Wacha is on the hill. That’s a tough duo to beat:)

I hope things do turn around as it has been a disappointing week. It’s been tough to see the offense struggle and bullpen tire. And it is hard to stay up late enough for rain delays and extra innings when I am two hours later than St. Louis.

Me too Bob.I’m in Connecticut so extra innings doesn’t help my beauty sleep.Haley lives in that time zone( the lucky stiff) and gets the game on radio or T.V. a whole lot more often than me. Yes, Haley you are reading sour grapes:(
Errors and 29 men left on base the last few games never gets it done.Tonight as I said I got the flag up and Wacha throwing……..tough to beat,very tough!
Go Cards and get me Pollock Mo !!!!

Nova Scotia here – so an hour east of Hartford. I have followed them for 48 years now. Used to have to get weak squeaky signal form KMOX with Jack Buck and Mike Shannon to hear Brock demolish base-stealing records. Now I can follow well on MLB TV. How times have changed. Hope you are right and things look up tonight.

Golf Channel is showing the Nova Scotia Open.Love the scenery.I listen to KNOX,but
too often they have that idiot Rush on,instead of the game. I use gameday, that way I get it free……..me soooo cheap!
Get me Pollock Mo……
