    Not watching the game, just kind of following along on my phone.

    Did I mention that I love Mike Napoli?

    Because right now, I love Mike Napoli.

    I don't have much problem with the "neighborhood play" but you gotta have control of the baseball.

    Cardinals fans across the nation applaud the impressive start by Boston, right?

    Did anyone catch Tim McCarver say how unlike it is for the Cardinals to not be ready this early?

    I want to go throw up.

    Same here. But the beards are horrible. Grown men with their heads shaved (for some) and a scraggly beard that looks like awful.

    No excuse for Molina and Wainwright but 3/4 of that IF are either rookies or 2nd year players. 1st WS for them. Gotta have some butterflies.

    This sure is fun to watch.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    The Red Sox are the type of team that can bury you. Didn't think the Cardinals would hand them the shovel lol...

    Someone recap for me quickly. . don't have access to TV.

    Could someone explain the Kozma error and infield single that Drew had? I keep seeing this on Twitter and such. . . but I'm trapped with my wife now!
