I laughed out loud when one story called it the "vaunted
Cardinal bullpen." They obviously haven't followed our team at all this season. The stats don't lie. They just got hot at the right time, with the rest of the team, and were being used by Don Tony and Dave Duncan in the best possible scenarios for each situation. They are still without a true closer, as evidenced last night. Motte has ONE pitch, and big league hitters are in the big leagues for a reason...they can hit ANYBODY'S fastball, especially when they can sit on a relatively straight one pitch after pitch, regardless of the velocity. That said, I still like our chances. We've played better on the road than at home this season, so we'll see if that form holds. Momentum is only as good as the next day's starter, so it may shift many more times before this series is over.
