    Do the Dodgers EVER lose anymore?

    Please don't give me those numbers....they are meaningless. He has been the biggest fail for the money he's making this side of Soriano. Like the post HGH Pujols, he feasts on bad pitching in games the Cards score a ton and everybody is hitting. But when the chips are down and they need a key hit, he pops up or GIDP. (which he leads baseball in)

    He hit that walkoff the other night and was mobbed. It was a rare sight. His face looked flummoxed. Not used to it at all. I bet if you check, you will find that the much less used Descalso has more game winning hits than Matt. (from the time DD started playing)

    Enough of that....I don't have any idea what the Pirates will do today, but I'm pretty sure that the Cards and Reds will not lose again to these bottom feeders.

    You're a Cards fan, right?

    You should probably throw in a caveat somewhere that says "except when playing the Reds".

    That bald roid head absolutely owns them. He hits doubles in the gap in what seems like every at bat. He is a big reason for the Cards dominance over the Reds since he got there.

    He and the evil, creepy, neck tattooed catcher absolutely own them.

    Throw Fat Adams into the mix as well.

    I have a theory that Cards' hitters either steal signs or pick up on some kind of tell or method in Reds' pitching. They never ever look frustrated or challenged by Reds' pitching. When the Reds win, it's usually fielding and the randomness of fly balls not leaving he park that save them. It's never that Reds pitchers shut them down. Other teams' pitchers can clearly frustrate them though.

    I think part of it is mental (the Cards sure get into their heads), but I have to say I thought the same thing as you during the last series. The Cards looked like two completely different teams between their previous series with the Pirates and the hit-tastic team that faced the Reds.

    Then you look at them yesterday when the Cubs kept them down to 2 hits. Something's weird there.

    Holy cow. I can't believe no one has brought that up before.

    They certainly do hit like they know what's coming. It's more than likely the product of superior advanced scouting.

    They are like the NSA, or Stazi.

    Matt Holliday has been pretty damn good for the cardinals in "clutch" situations.

    Maybe if people weren't expecting him to be the next AP they wouldn't be so disappointed
