    The win against the Cards didn't count.

    The Cards are unbeatable.

    If Castro, Freel, Ross and Gonzo don't go down...Hopper, Kepp and Javy see little playing time.

    Those three are hitting .397, .420 and .389 respectively in August.
    Wait, injuries are supposed to be bad for a team...

    I'm baffled. That lineup really had no business winning. Even Majewski pitched about as well as could be expected.

    Doesn't make a lick of sense to me, but I like it.

    Ultimately, winning ball clubs have depth enough that any player called on can get the job done. I know that's not exactly what happened last night (Cantu and Ellison as I recall didn't have big nights), this club now is finally performing as I had thought they would this season - being reasonably competitive, having chances in games.

    It was a fun game to watch and a great game to win. And the night at the ballpark was far more pleasant than I had anticipated.
