  • The Cardinals can't win for losing

    Carpenter tosses a nice little gem last evening, holding the Astros to 2 runs after 8 innings. The Cards' bats pound out 5 runs against arguably the hottest pitcher in the majors since August in Pettitte. We take Game 1 of the NLCS, running our postseason unbeaten streak to 4 games.

    But the Cardinals win is barely a blip on the national radar. It is easily overshadowed by "UmpireGate" and the Game 2 controversy in the LAA/CHW contest.

    Fast forward 24 hours...the ALCS is entertaining a travel day, Oswalt tosses a gem against us for a Houston win which evens the series at 1 game apiece.

    Tomorrow, free from the burden of reporting the Emmy-worthy drama that is the ALCS, columnist nationwide will exhalt Oswalt's pitching performance, Houston's undeniable destiny, and the achilles heel plaguing the Cardinals.

    Timing is everything. What a difference a day makes.

    What's with all of this lack of national respect thing going on around here? Screw what the east coast media centers want. Thankfully both championship series are taking place in locations other than New York and Boston. Fans of these four teams will show up.
