Ok, so after two games of this series, we appear to have determined two things:
- The Astros aren't very good
- The Cardinals aren't very good, either
Yet one team has a couple half-ass playoff hopes. How, exactly, did this come to pass?
I'd never suggest that the Astros are a good team. What you see is pretty much what you get with Houston Astros v.2007, a directionless and ineffectual animal that doesn't even do suck all that well.
But when I see the Cards play like they did last night, I gotta wonder what breaks they've caught to get them so close to the break-even line they clearly don't deserve.
How come the 'Stros haven't been able to do the luck that way?
Can we blame that on Drayton, too?
