You know what I want to hear when the Cardinals leave a series?
"We got out-executed the whole series," manager Kirk Gibson said. "They outpitched us, outdefended us, they swung the bats better than we did, and we're happy to see them go."
Damn Skippy, Kirk. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. Spot on my man.
The Cardinals got their first sweep of the young 2012 season after coming close several series before. They've only lost 2 series all year and as we've oft repeated on this site - win every series and you'll be in the playoffs with ease.
A special shout out to Alex Fritz (@boxcar_fritz) for his on-going season long depiction of the Cardinals series via Lego men:
I love those things. Especially when you don't put the little cap on them... It really DOES look like Matt Holliday, guys!
