Ok, I understand that last night was gravy and that all we hoped for heading into this series was a split and that's what we got. But we really pissed away a golden opportunity. Just like when the Cubs came to Miller Park and did what they had to do to bury the Brewers in the Division race, we had that same chance to bury the Cardinals in the Wild Card race and we failed. 5 1/2 games is a lot more than 3 1/2. Not to mention Carlos' little show of emotion is exactly the kind of fuel the Cards need to try and catch us. I'm glad we don't play these guys again. Reminds me of last year with the Cards, everything is going well and we beam Pujols and light a fire under their asses. This year we piss off Pujols by celebrating the fact that you got lucky and got out of a bases loaded jam with no one scoring. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't' have a good feeling about what took place last night. I'll feel a lot better if we win the first 2 in Pitt and have CC on the bump Sunday.
PS-Parra pitched awesome last night and deserved the W.
