And that's doing what they gotta do to win close games. Just in the past two weeks this is what they've done:
- Rallied from a 4-0 deficit with all of two innings left to beat the Dodgers 5-4
- Beat the Cubs 4-3 in the 11th inning on Sunday Night Baseball at Wrigley
- After blowing a big lead against the Mets on Wednesday Night Baseball, still win at Citi Field in 13 innings 8-7
- Beat the Pirates 1-0 in 10 innings to break a scoreless game last night
Meanwhile what are we doing? Lost an extra inning game last night to the Braves we should have won, blowing a 2 run lead. Lost a 3-2 game against the Brewers on Monday that we blew a 2 run lead. Lost a 1-0 game to the Rockies a couple weekends ago. And then the infamous Phillies series before the ASB where we lost 4 close games, with a major collapse thrown in.
Bottom line is, we have no one to blame but ourselves if we can't get into the playoffs. St Louis is doing what they gotta do and actually has a pair to survive pressure situations, unlike our team, who seemingly wilts under close game, low scoring pressure lately. :thumbdown
