A lot of doubters for Pujols right now. Good to see him busting out. And overall, this was a fun series. Definitely what was needed after the San Fran series. Theriot with the HUGE hit in the 9th with 2 strikes against him. Extended his hitting streak, tied the game, and at the time, put him in scoring position to win the game. His hit (and Yadi's before that) are what allowed Pujols' heroics to happen.
I was talking with someone on Facebook today who is also a Cardinals fan. This team is probably the most fun I've had following the Cards since the '04-'05 team. And not just because they win. This team seems to have good chemistry, character, and overall likability. They are never out of a game either. On top of that, you've got some flamethrowers out of the 'pen. The lack of a set closer in concerning but that's alright. We won our last World Series with a hurt/broke down/ineffective Izzy replaced by a rookie named Waino.
It's a long season, but I would have turned off this game last year, because they just quit on so many of those games. But even though I thought the game was in tough shape after Rasmus pinch hit and K'd in the 9th, I knew there was a possibility for something good to happen.
