The Cardinals face elimination today - A Hunt and Peck

Let’s hope they win!

Today the Cardinals season could end. That is the nature of the postseason.

Jack Flaherty will take the mound with the season on the line. A weird season that might mark the end of Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina’s storied careers with the franchise. A season that didn’t look like it was even going to happen. A season that did happen, but then seems impossible to complete. The Cardinals missed two weeks with an coronovirus outbreak, then went on to play what? 53 games in what? 45 days?

Adam Wainwright pitched a complete game on his 39th birthday. Yadier Molina hit his 2000th hit. Alex Reyes actually pitched in a non-theoretical way. Jack Flaherty ascended into someone great on the baseball field and beyond. Dylan Carlson made his debut. Harrison Bader hit Fredbird’s painting in Big Mac Land. It has been absurd and wonderful.

So much has happened this season. Today it could all end...

But hopefully not!
