The point was to illustrate that for those that don't watch the Cards regularly and have fooled themselves into thinking that they own the recipe to some magic formula that prevents the Reds from beating them that there was evidence enough in just one half inning of baseball that they are no more than a group of humans like our Reds are.

Think of all the bandwidth that would have been saved had tonight's game been game 1 of the series.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
The Reds' run differential in this series so far is +2.
What I am sick and tired of is not being able to tell the difference between Descalso and Matt Carpentar....every time they go up to bat. They both look like the same guy. Boy that really grinds my gears.
I was sick and tired of that starter they ran out there tonight. Glad they chased him ASAP.
I feel the woo inside and that's where it should stay. Goodnight.
Without going back and looking, going strictly from memory, this team should have won a couple of these series vs the Cards this year. They found ways to give it up (lose).
We're in the dog days of August where all players physically, as well as emotionally (mentally) are starting to show some wear. This is make or break time. There's nothing wrong with some leadership, whether it's the players or manager, "kicking some butt" right now privately in that clubhouse, telling these players we've come to that point in the season where we have to put up or shut up and do what many of us believe they are very capable of doing.
What's it going to hurt? They need a spark.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations

Can't wait for the Labor Day lambasting to begin! I feel sorry for what is coming to the cardinals, it will not be pretty for them.
