As frustrating as this team can be, I will say that even at 6-0 down tonight I was convinced that we were going to come back and be in the game in the final couple of innings. After the bottom of the 8th, I thought we were done though. Just unbelievable.
Predictions for the Rams tomorrow? I'm cautiously optimistic. Miami is much better than their record.
I am optimistic, but certainly not looking past them. I believe the Cardinals and the Seahawks are both better teams than the Phins, but we beat them at home. I guess we'll see. I think it's going to be very close.
Yankees lost, Cards won. I'm happy. Would've been nice for the Rams to pull off that victory though. I think the Rams were the better team, we just couldn't get into the endzone. Would've been nuts if Legatron would've nailed that tying shot. Bradford took a really bad sack the play before that backed them up probably 5 yards. If he just throws it away, Greg would've had a much better chance. Oh well. This is clearly a vast improvement over last season. We have had a good chance to win 5 out of the 6 games we've played. Much better than last season.
Don't have any time for Saban going on about how he doen't condone that behaviour either. He left him out there after he done it.
I'll tell you something, though; my respect for Bama fans grew a lot. The vast majority of them hated what Fanning did, and they sent out a lot of prayers for Eric Waters as well. They've got a lot of classy fans, that's for sure.
Is it only me that Matt Holliday frustrates at this time of year? Maybe I'm still too hung up on him throwing the game away against the Dodgers a few years back And yes, he was great against the Brewers last season, and against Atlanta in the playoff game... but I just think something changes with him at the plate in the postseason.

Talk about a horrible day in Missouri sports. Cardinals lost because of Holliday, Blues lost the home opener, and Mizzou lost to Nebraska in the rain and Gabbert got hurt. A lot of people drank away their sorrows that night, a lot of people.
I think I was in the majority last season who was quite worried that we sold low on Rasmus and that Jay might not be able to maintain his level. I'd agree with what you just said now, better than Rasmus in everything but power.
Jay's probably one of our most underrated players. He always brings excellent defense, gets on base from the lead-off spot, and has the speed to steal a base as well. In a lineup with Holliday, Beltran, Molina, and Freese, Jon Jay may be the most important part.
