As if I needed another reason to grumble about the Phillies…
My friend Jake made a good point though: “just think what you could catch if you googled the Cubs!”
So, for your Friday I offer up a “fluff-post”… just the meanderings of my Cardinal-loving brain from the hours spent watching our boys battle those nasty Phillies.
1. Last year I was convinced that Jason Werth was moonlighting as Shaggy (from Scooby Doo). Now he’s looking more like a scary, homeless, Mountain-Man version of Shaggy. Can somebody please give that dude a mirror…. or a haircut?
Twice in this series, Phillies fans ran out onto the field, interrupting the ballgames and disrupting the flow of the game for the players.

*disclaimer #1: I do know 2 very nice people who are Phillies fans, so they can’t all be that bad?!
Even the thought of seeing that slick hair from last postseason makes me shudder.
I could watch him his pitching every day! ;)
But he was unavailable for viewing due to a temper tantrum resulting in a self-inflicted broken toe and a trip to the DL.
(stupid move, Mr. Madson….)
Brendan Ryan alone had serious grounds for complaints… the ump crew robbed him of a triple and a single – on replay, both were missed calls.

I don’t know how many times I sat there shaking my head at the failures of the umpires. Has there been a series with as many failed calls?
But enough about that….

Another reason to be a proud Cardinals fan:
Our pitching staff continues to lead the majors with a combined 2.71 ERA.
Plus the National League Player of the Week was our own David Freese!!!
TGIF Cards Fans! Enjoy your weekend and please stay safe…
PS – Don’t google any Phillies!
