I love how Cards fans when they lose.
In the Braves game, the bad call lowered the runs expected in that inning by 1.2 runs. So it was extremely likely that at least one run would score, making it 6-4, at least. That's enough to make it meaningful, as it changed the game entirely.
In tonight's game, the bad call raised the Giants runs expected by .2 runs, which clearly didn't change the game in any meaningful way. What changed it, was Miller's inability to get anyone out.
If team A scored 6 in a game, and team B scored 4, who would win?
Game might have been closer if that defensive wiz Allen Craig didn't look so lost wanting to come get the Crawford ball then going back on the foul side of first then falling over the bag trying to get the throw where its always going to be.
Funny...I visited Cards Talk tonight when the score was 5-1 & every single person said the only reason the Giants got to 5 runs was luck..
