Even with all their injuries, it seemed someone would always be the "next one up" to step in and make up for the loss. They played well and with lots of heart. With all the adversity, the Cardinals won 100 games and had the best record in baseball for the season. I thought that fact alone should take them to the World Series. It didn't, and the season is over for them and for me.
Now I will have time to write, paint, and teach art classes for the next four months. I will count the days until mid-February and the start of Spring Training.
Being a baseball fan is hard work.
