We're better than they are. Doesn't mean we'll win. 5 game series and all. But we're better.

Yeah I bought tickets on stubhub for Saturday this afternoon. Pretty pumped for this.

This season [expletive] rules

God I'm having so much fun. It's not bravado at all to say the Cubs are a better current team than the Cardinals. It's too bad Arrieta will only be able to play 1 against them.

[expletive] em up Cubs!

Imagine if the Astros wind up winning the ALCS (I was actually hoping the Yankees would beat them in the ALWC -- is that wrong?)... it could be an NL Central/erstwhile NL Central WS.

Here's hoping the Cubs represent!

Arrieta's game will clinch it for us though.

Without Martinez, this is a great matchup for the Cubs.

I hope Joe reads this to the team to get everyone furious:

Why St. Louis is the Ultimate Baseball Town


It was more than just winning, though. Peralta, who had played in Cleveland and Detroit, also believed he’d be happy there. The Yankees have won more championships than the Cardinals (who are second overall), 27 compared with 11. But New York is hardly an easy place to play, with its tabloid media culture, relentless pressure and stands filled with boobirds.

He figured that playing in baseball-crazed St. Louis, in front of the most dedicated and supportive fans in the game, would improve his play, especially after a season when he was suspended for 50 games for using performance-enhancing drugs. He turned out to be right. The fans supported him, his statistics improved, and he’s not the only one. The numbers show that players tend to perform better in St. Louis than they do with their previous or future teams.


Sports psychologists say Lackey and his teammates are benefiting from a phenomenon known as “social facilitation,” which is a person’s awareness and response to being observed by someone who appears to care about what they are doing. In one of the landmark studies in the field from 1983, 36 college-age runners were timed while running two, 45-yard segments of a path. Only runners who were observed by someone ran the second segment faster.

Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward had the best year of his career after getting traded from the Braves in the off-season. He said he quickly noticed that baseball-savvy fans applauded little things he did that had gone overlooked in Atlanta: a quick throw from the outfield preventing a runner from taking an extra base, advancing a runner with a ground-ball out; or trying to go from first to third on a hit to the outfield—even if the aggressiveness resulted in an out.

Who could have predicted that Jason Heyward would have his best season in a contract year?
