the eternal question

Another home run day for the Redbirds. Miles hit his first of the year, Ankiel went deep as well, and Glaus hit the Cards' first grand slam this season.
Mitchell Boggs continues to surprise me with his ability to get batters out. The way he pitches gives you the sinking feeling that something bad could happen at any moment, but for the most part, it doesn't.
My question of the day: How do you get swept by the Royals at home (last place team in their division and second-worst record in the whole AL), and then go to Boston and take the first two against the Red Sox (the team with the best record in the AL and the second-best in MLB), not to mention get over them by a 6-run margin in the second game? Don't think too hard about it, though. It's going to be a long road trip.
