DATELINE: SAN LUIS, MISERY, ERRR, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI - The Hunt for a Red October is on this weekend in the ATL. We're talking Astro Brick Red. Tony La Russa, Albert and the Cardinals have lost 8 of their last 9, we've won 9 in a row, we're no longer in the Wild Card race, but a half game behind for the Central Division title - you gotta love this game! What a difference nine games make! High fives are everywhere! It's in the air!
It's crazy! The two maybe divisional series games that will maybe be played next week at home are already sold out. The already printed maybe tie breaker tickets for maybe next Tuesday's game with the Cardinals have Preston Wilson's picture on it - it's crazy! Commentary got invoiced for the tie breaker game yesterday and promptly paid - it's crazy! Ten days ago, folks were already cracking on this year's team performance, now these same folks are lighting those religious candles in their living rooms - it's crazy!
The record, errrr, Daily Commentary shows that Commentary never lost hope - cause I'm crazy!
It is going to be another one of those fantastic baseball watching weekends and finishes in H-Town. It looks like Pam-In-Charge and other top team execs are heading for the ATL this weekend - let's hope they bring home some more baseball for next week - it's crazy!
Note: In 2004 and 2005, the 'Stros advanced in the playoffs by defeating the Braves - interesting - Atlanta stands in our way one more time - it's crazy!
