Do not fear or fret Reds fans they will not play above their heads all year, eventually reality will set in. If we can stay within a few games we will be in position to move ahead of them.
I'm curious about the whiny Cards. A few years ago, TLR complained about everything, so it's obvious how they earned that. Now.... There doesn't seem to be any personalities on the team to really draw any ire. Matheny, as far as I've seen, hasn't been in post game interviews making excuses or deflecting. He seems to stick to a predictable script of praising pitching and hitting for wins, and expressing disappointment for tough losses. Only time I've seen him dispute calls were close ones....... Do they still deserve it?
I wonder if STL still looks at BP as a loudmouth crap stirrer.
