Biting My Blue-Pinstriped Tongue
I encountered a number of Cardinals fans heading for Chicago Union Station during this evening's rush hour. I thought about making a smart remark or two in their direction, but I held back.
It's the middle of April, there are two games left in this series, and they're still in first place.
Besides, those Saint Louis-bound fans were going to be dealing with Amtrak for the next five and a half hours.
A person should only be subjected to so much grief in a single day.
Freaky Stat of the Day: The four Cardinal pitchers—Walters, Miller, Boggs, and Perez— combined to fan 13 Cubs this afternoon. That's the highest number of strikeouts by Cub hitters in a nine-inning game in which they beat St. Louis going back to 1954, when Baseball-Reference's Play Index data begins.
