Stupid doubleheaders. How frustrating was that 9th inning? Brilliant top half (including a beautiful Reed Johnson non-catch), and then three straight Ks looking in the bottom half. Sure, two of them were unbelievaballs, but you’ve got to protect with two strikes.

Also, Ryan Franklin’s goatee is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. I thought to myself all game, “do these Cardinals realize how ridiculous they look with these middle school crustaches?” And then Franklin came out looking like he had a lion’s vagina on his chin. Clearly, it’s part of the culture.
