I Know It's Been Rather Empty Here

This post over at RedbirdBrain sums up exactly how I've felt about the baseball season so far. Hence, the paucity of Cardinals' posts. Ordinarily such seasonal mediocrity would have had me rabidly producing.

However, recently this Doris Day attitude has started to crumble. I've been getting more and more into winning again. Earlier in the year, I thought the Cardinals would be buried by now. The fact that they are still in striking distance before the All-Star Break, with Carpenter, Edmonds and Mulder coming off the DL within the next month, has given me hope for another October surprise.

God help me. Because I've kind of enjoyed this more relaxed approach to baseball. It's not going to last much longer. I'm beginning to awaken out of my peaceful slumber. I'm soon going to be like the SuperFans, awaiting my 15th heart attack.

Da Boirds!

Indians won their 50th game last night. Their three upcoming games against Detroit may give me a heart attack though. :)

You sound like I did last season.

Da Tribe! Although I look fondly back to last October, I was a little stressed while it was all unfolding. I can relate to the heart attacks. It's the one bad thing about following a team closely.


How so?

A ball field has it's own special kind of beauty, doesn't it?

Absolutely. And all senses are involved. That is if you do it right. Although now that the stadium is smokeless, I don't think it will smell the same.
