Harang Announces This Will Be the Last Game He Receives No Run Support, Cardinals 5-2

The offense tricked fans today by jumping out to an early 2-0 lead before turning their focus towards their burgeoning career(s) as a recording artist. It's either one or the other. Harang didn't have his best stuff (he walked Chris Duncan twice which is pretty indicative) but lasted six and only gave up three earned but those three proved to be an insurmountable deficit for the Patterson-less offense. Just ask Dusty, he brings a pic-a-nic basket full of intangibles. Uncle Merky put the game out of reach by giving up a couple in the 7th. That drops the road trip back to .500 before Atlanta starting Friday.

On a positive note, I found this picture while looking around on Google accompanied by the following: "In the 1930's The St. Louis Cardinals baseball team was nicknamed 'The Gas House Gang' to describe the players' fiery attitude toward the game and their fun-loving style of play. In 1987 a quartet from the St. Louis area chose the name to match its own personality. Since that time, the foursome's energetic singing style and diverse repertoire have proven the appropriateness of the title to people across North America and Europe."

Nothing not to like there. Win Friday Reds.

If you were to vote for a nickname for the Cardinals of mid 200's what would it be?

My vote is "Asleep at the Wheel," for their fiery attitudes toward drinking and driving.
