I have to tell you that I’m feeling very depressed. The Cards took a 3-0 lead on a first inning homer. At the conclusion of the inning, Jair Jurrjens left the game with a leg problem. The Braves got it to 3-1 in the third, then the Cards immediately got the run back, then put up five on Jesse Chavez in innings 5-6. The last three runs were basically window dressing. One of them was a Heyward homer, which is nice, I guess.
Chipper sat, not that it mattered. Well, cosmically, what does any of this matter? Yes, I’m taking comfort in nihilism.
