ready? on nine. onetwothreefourfivesixseveneight...nine

Okay, I have to admit I haven't watched the end of last night's game against San Francisco yet. As one of my friends so eloquently put it, "I'm old and have trouble staying up past 10 pm." Anyway, I watched through the Cards half of the 6th, then taped the rest, and even though I know the outcome, I still plan on watching it. I just haven't gotten around to it yet. 

Wainwright looked good, but he was definitely on the receiving end of some hard-luck plays and other misfortunes. The bounce off second base, then Kennedy's throwing error... but the biggest hurdle of the game was Correia's pace. For a guy that supposedly had the flu, he sure looked to be on top of the world. 

Oh, and on a side note: WTF? The game on Saturday won't be televised? stupid Fox and the stupid Yankees.... But that's okay, cause John and Mike are just as good as Dan and Al, only without any visual accompaniment. I guess I'll have to download some photos of Glaus to stare at while John tells me about the "blue caps and road gray uniforms with 'Cardinals' across the chest and the birds on the bat," and Mike fills me in on how well Yadi blocks those balls in the dirt and how often Wellemeyer checks on the runner at first.
