The last time we did a "Scoreboard Watching" post, it didn't work out so well for us. But we're going to try, try again (this time, with the starting pitching matchup in italics!) because:
- The game comes over our lunch hour, giving us something to do at our desks besides read the depressing news in the Wall Street Journal;
- If the Cardinals win, the Dodgers will have clinched the NL West even before they take the field tonight;
- If the Cardinals lose, the Dodgers still have a chance to take care of business at home against the Padres this evening.
Eight remaining opportunities, and all we need is one favorable outcome. Put on your Cardinals hats, party people!
