Despite whatever negativity I subsequently show later in this thread, I am damn excited about day baseball on my Good Friday off.

I will admit: Only 9 games in, I'm already in "Have this fucking team tank as much as humanly possible, so maybe at least a little heat gets directed towards Neal Huntington and Bob Nutting for a change" mode.

Getting swept by the Cubs to fall to 3-9 is an absolute possibility.

cue the "baserunning is bad all throughout the game" excuse, to cover for the horrendous base running on this team.

3-12 after the Cards at Busch an even bigger possibility.

Here's Cole's (and bullpen's) chance, with a 4-2 lead. Redemption?

Watson walks Schwarber on 4 pitches in front of Bryant. Neat.

I didn't get to see the game but followed along. That's the type of pitching line from Cole against a good lineup that keeps you coming back for more.

I'm going to need a numbered list showing instances where you support tanking and instances where you do not support tanking.

There's a difference between a team like the Pirates losing a shitton of games because they just aren't very good, vs. an NBA team intentionally benching or trading away their best players so they don't win.

I support the former, but despise the latter.

On the bright side we aren't as bad as our Canadian team. They are 1-9 and can't score
