I believe in baseball, still

If I was cynical, and disillusioned, I might think the Tigers are throwing the World Series. Me? Cynical? Disillusioned? Maybe. But, I refuse, refuse I tell ya, to stop believing in baseball.

Stop believing in our government, the wisdom of our people, the motives of elected officials, the fairness of elections, the very idea that most people share some modicum of decency and fairness and morality? Oh yeah. Baseball? Hell, no.

But, they sure can throw some balls away, that's for sure. The Cards aren't getting a chance to beat them. They are beating themselves.
