Also, what a huge come from behind win last night. I didn't have a chance to watch much but saw they were down late. I gave up on them, woke up this morning and slapped on the highlights before work and was pleasantly surprised to see the win. That's huge if you ask me. It's not a must win by any means but to start 0-4 on the road trip would be a blow coming against division foes. Definitely a good pick-me-up win.
Well Holiday came up with a two out two run double in the bottom of the ninth only to have the entire 'twitterverse' remind everyone how HORRIBLE he is.
That has been one positive effect of social media.......the 'worlds best baseball fans' have been exposed as quite possible the 'wolds dumbest baseball fans' and they sit there in their Bo Heart jersey and their stick on red goatee explaining to all that will listen just how bad Holiday is.
Yeah, that's my biggest pet peeve about fans right now. Holliday is a top 5 hitter in the national league. He is a sicko who had a bad 12 games to start the season and made an error in an inopportune time (against the Dodgers in the NLDS in 2009). People seem to remember the bad, but don't seem to understand that his Cardinal numbers are better than his career numbers. He has an OPS of .930 as a Cardinal versus .927 for his career.
This year, despite a terrible first 2 weeks and mediocre 2-3 weeks following that, he has somehow managed to OPS .905. That's REALLY good, especially given his bad start. When people call him bad, I immediately know that they know less about baseball than I do about hockey lol.
