    Just saw Mike Matheny on MLB & I know what the Cardinals have!!!

    Just saw Mike Matheny on MLB & it hit me like a ton of bricks!!! Did you witness their dugout?? I sure did & we don't have one bit of it.....I saw Carpenter, Schumaker & later Wainwright when he was out of the lineup with nonstop cheering, greeting each player, back slaps...you know the whole bit...
    Matheny said he'd never seen anything like it....It was like a HS football locker room...He said instead of Wainwright hanging his head he was up cheering like crazy...He said they have a never say die attitude....I know what your thinking, we make alot of comebacks...sure we do...to what teams?? great teams?? Sure some, if someone strings some hits together...Our M.O. is sit by yourself or next to one guy & everyone just hopes...no chatter at all....Sure I believe Frazier will be great for this but we need a couple more....This to me is the answer....Winners don't know how to lose....

    Luck is what the Cardinals have that the Reds don't.

    I used to think you had valid points, now I realize it is all soaked in bitterness.

    The Cardinals had the 11th best record in all of MLB and 13 of the 14 games over .500 came vs the Majors 3 worst teams. They won 41% of their season total of wins vs teams that had 90 losses or more.

    To put that 41% of wins vs 90 loss or more teams into perspective a team like the Angels missed the playoffs and had more wins than the Cardinals but won just 27% of their wins vs 90 loss clubs.

    They Angles had just 3 wins vs the 3 worst MLB teams while the Cardinals had 26!

    Also for the record I was here saying how dumb the 2nd Wild Card was before the Cards even were leading in it over the Pirates let alone winning in the playoffs from the spot.

    Is it the Cardinals fault they qualified for the postseason under the current system?

    LOL

    The Angles[sic] only played 3 games against the 3 worst MLB teams, and went 3-0.

    The Reds had 27 wins against the worst 3 MLB teams.

    I fail to see the point you're trying to make.

    They don't have a good manager at all, Matheny cost them countless games this year and is the reason why they have a losing record on the road, in 1 run games and in extra innings games.

    The 3 wins they won vs the Nats in the DS they scored 9.67 runs per game taking all managing out of his hands, the two they lost came on bad moves by MM that both changed the game.

    Matheny is a great manager and will only get better once his buddy Scott Rolen joins him in St.Louis next season as 1st base coach.

    I'll agree here. Matheny isn't a great manager but he's not horrible. There's a learning process, but it definitely helps having guys like Beltran, Berkman, Molina and Carpenter in the clubhouse.

    I would argue that the game 1 loss couldn't be placed on MM. The hit that drove in the winning run was a pitch outside to a dead pull hitter who flicked his bat at it. If you want to call anything lucky, that was it. But it fell so it is what it is, and the Nats got the credit.

    Ever hear of a guy name of Pete Rose? He talked about luck. How the guys who work the hardest are always the lucky ones.

    And why don't you Reds fans find a rival you can compete with? As a Cardinal fan, I consider our closest rivals to be LA and SF. They have the 2nd and 3rd most World Series wins.

    If you pick up a few more ex-Cardinals, it might help you out. Live on the crumbs we drop. Maybe you can sign Lohse in the off season. We have soooo many pitchers, we just can't find room for him any longer.

    There is a link on the Cards Forum to the crying fans of this forum. Everybody is getting a laugh from you guys.

    Keep cryin' about the Cardinals.

    Thats weak bro. if you want to just com and laugh then do it but you don't need to post. I certainly find many of the opinions on here to be sometimes very outrageous but you don't need to just stir stuff up with posts like that.

    Honest question. Should I get a pizza, or tacos for dinner?
