Grind It Out
It took 3:00 for the Rockies to defeat the Cards at Busch Stadium tonight. It's amazing to me how the performance of a starting pitcher early on allows one to predict the future. During the top of the first inning I knew the Redbirds were in for a long night. Their starting pitcher had no command of any pitch and it was obvious he wouldn't find it. Colorado's starting pitcher whose repertoire consists of slow, slower, slowest had command and he dealt. This game is an example of my least favorite game to cover. You know early on that your team doesn't have a chance so you know you are going to have to grind it out. Directing a baseball game is great fun. Grinding through a baseball game is hard work.
