The 22-3 run was great and all but its in the past, if we don't come back off their godawful BP that run only will have netted us just a handful of games in the standings.
Over the last 39 games if we don't come back we will have only picked up 2 games on both the Cardinals and Pirates and we went 5-1 against them combined with us winning .692 ball over the span.
If we get beat by a rival and a team that just rolled over for 3 in St Louis to lose 2 games in standings to both chasing us while starting a 7 game trip while the rivals are both at home, its ok to be upset and you can still be a fan.
