Kissing Your Sister Leads Monday Ramblin’s…


That was the single most dramatic, exciting and exhausting series the Cardinals have played all season that meant absolutely nothing. They came in to LA up 1 game for the last Wild Card spot. They left LA up 1 game for the last Wild Card spot. In between, some tense baseball. They should have had a little roshambo or something for a half-game just to make it worth the time… 

Whoa Rams. I’ve gotten pretty comfortable being able to make plans on Sunday now. Are we trying to change that? You can read all my thoughts over at SB Nation later on Monday, but here’s what I’ll say on Steven Jackson’s “groin injury”: There is no groin injury. And unless you want to ask a 6’3″ 240 beast of a RB about it, then we’ll all move along and act like it’s a real thing. Like the Tooth Fairy or Santa…

I’m too lazy to figure it out, but I bet the Cardinals have lost like 15 games they really should have won. Like that one on Saturday night. The ump punches out Gordon at second base and it’s a win. Instead, Motte blows the save. That one actually should have been a win. And it seems like the Cardinals have a game a week where they should have won. Not could of, should…

Is a 40 man roster too much? I get it. Want to get as many guys some coffee in the bigs. But I really makes me feel like a shitty fan when I don’t have a clue who some of these guys are. Hill? Who are you Hill? Maybe have like 30 be the new September roster. The Cardinals get to add 5 players and I feel like we could all keep track of 5 more. 15 more, though? We’ve got lives here…

I saw a kid who was 4 literally cry over his iPad not having wi-fi access to NetFlix. He was screaming he wanted NetFlix as his mother told him he’s outside at a BBQ and that the wi-fi wasn’t in existence. I’m pretty sure through the tears he referenced 3G. Think about that for a second and let that sink in. Kid is 4. The next generation of people on this planet take instant streaming of movies and TV for granted. They don’t care about signal strength. They want their mother fucking streaming video. I bet they’re going to invent some wicked cool technology…

Vin Scully. Still kicking. Still a one-man booth. Still the best going…

Cardinals start a stretch of 9 very easy games. Win 7 and they’re all but assured a playoff spot. They survived a 2-5 road trip, somehow, and are in control of their destiny. Got to beat down the bottom feeders this week…
