Tonight, the Cards captured their 70th win. 70?! Hard to believe when you consider that they started out in the neighborhood of 22-22, and were nothing remarkable until June. More and more, they look poised for the post-season. Perhaps a Cards-Yanks World Series?
Today, they took a larger step in that direction by grabbing Larry Walker from Colorado. Now, that’s impressive! We already have one of the most fearsome offensive lineups; adding Walker only enhances that. I expect he’ll start showing up in the lineup this weekend against the Mets.
The last time I can remember this town being so excited about sports was when the Rams won the Super Bowl in 2000. There’s something about being in a town with a big winner that’s really exhilarating!
