1 Peter 4-5.
Well now, I guess there was good reason not to declare the Cardinals dead a couple weeks back. I just couldn't do it and I'm glad I didn't.
I'm still in shock the Cardinals are still standing.
The late Jack Buck sums up my feelings just right:
Jack Buck don't believe what I just saw!
And I need to give credit to the GM, John Mozielak, who I torched last month. Two playoff appearances the past 3 years now gives him a pass.
Finally, I can't forget to give credit to LaRussa. He makes inexplicable moves which make all of us bang our heads. But he is tough-minded enough to hold a team together when things aren't going so well, and I give him credit for leading the team back.
