The Cards clobbered the Pirates today 9 - 2 in 3:06 at Busch Stadium. During blowouts, especially late in the season, it can be a tad bit difficult maintaining focus throughout the game/telecast. I found myself starting to drift at times during today's contest. I understand that when the game is in the 8th inning and the score is 9 - 0, one's attention may stray from the task at hand, but you have to fight this and get back on track. Today's game was one of those games where it became difficult to maintain focus especially in the top of the ninth inning when the batter leading off the inning walked with the score 9 - 0. I believe I cursed at that point.
