Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 7, Cardinals 2 – September 14, 2010

I am working hard to take joy in beating the Cardinals as something unto itself, and not think about how this team is finally playing well when it doesn’t matter anymore (they were officially eliminated from playoff contention on Monday). The Cubs smacked Cy Young candidate Adam Wainwright around like he was former Cy Young candidate Adam Wainwright.

And one Cub in particular is quietly looking sufficiently good that he’s pushing another Cub out of a job next year.

    I truly hope your enjoying this crap…

    the reds…the fricking REDS, Dusty Baker and all, are backing into the division crown with neither of our teams in sight. What an embarassment…

    go Padres!

    As far as this season goes, you are probably already in stage 6 of the grief process -”Reconstructing and Working Through”. I, on the other hand, have just stepped into Stage 3 – “Anger and Bargaining”.

    You can enjoy. I can be pissed as hell.

    So the world turns…

      Wow, Al – great insight…

      The Cardinals are 12-6 against the Reds this year. In fact, against the 1st or 2nd place teams in the NL (ATL, PHI, SD, SF, STL), the Reds are a whopping 16-31. Sure the Cubbies handed them a fistful of wins (12, I think), but the Cardinals managed to screw themselves by consistently losing to the bottom-dwellers. Transversely, the Cardinals are 28-17 against the 1st or 2nd place NL teams. Hence my obvious frustration and dismay. The Reds don’t have a chance to make it out of the first series. They are done before they get started. Another banner year for the NL Central.

      Check your facts before you lock your caps key, you frickin genius…

        It’s obvious you’re frustrated. You’re throwing out words like “transversely”.
