    Would the thread have been started if it were the same teams involved but in reverse?

    I'm pretty sure someone in here would have started a thread on the Cardinals epic collapse long before I started this thread. If there is anything I have learned being a member of the Reds Zone is that there is not much love for the Cardinals here, lol.

    It's Reds boards for Pete's sake.

    What do you expect?

    Kinda like when Brandon Phillips walks to the plate in St. Louis.

    That was my point. If there was an epic collapse by the Cards just like what is going on in Atlanta, I wouldn't have to start a thread about it like Brutus is asking. I'm pretty sure it would have been stared at least a week before I started this thread.

    Gracious, has there ever been two choke jobs in the same season as big as the ones we're seeing this year by Boston and Atlanta?

    So tonight, the Braves lose, and the Cards tie their games vs. the Astros. It goes into extras, and then Houston wins in the bottom of the 10th on a suicide squeeze bunt.

    The Cardinals could have tied it up, like the Rays did tonight. Now, they are one back of Atlanta with two games left to play. The Cards play Houston, the Braves play the Phillies.

    Tough loss. The Cards always seem to have trouble against Wandy Rodriguez.

    Anything that makes it as gut-wrenching as possible for the Cardinals is what I'm for. The fact that they've clawed back in the race to get to within a game, then they claw back in tonight's game to tie it only to blow it in the 10th is as enjoyable as it gets. In fact, their last two losses have been excruciating defeats snatched from the jaws of victory.

    At least they won't have to deal with notorious Cardinal killer Bud Norris in this series.

    As a Baseball Fan, I love the fact that the WC races in both leagues are nip and tuck and going down to the wire.
