If they call it down its bases loaded and 1 out, McCann walked so it would been 6-4 even, Then the pressure is all on the Cards, we have no idea what would happen next. With one out rather than two the Braves could have tried for a suicide squeeze play with Bourn up and a amped up closer in.
If he bunts it could have made it 6-5 or Motte could have thrown it away, bur either way the Braves would have got a second shot to get the big hit. Even if its 6-4 and Bourn and Prado make outs like the did. It would have set Jones and Freeman up with 2nd and 3rd and no outs down 2 in the 9th if everything played the same, If Uggla grounds out its 6-5 with one out and runner on 3rd for Ross who already had 3 hits.
Any Cards fan who thinks they aren't lucky exposes themselves as fools, if you go on any teams board who gets high traffic and you will see people talking about the Cards luck especially teams in the division who see it more.
Dude, please give it up. All you're doing is feeding the fire of these trolls. I hate the Cards just as much as you, but to say that the ONLY reason they are where they are at is due to luck, to me that is just plain crazy and a way of putting your anger off the Reds and towards them. Give it up, once the playoffs are over the trolls will leave man!!!
