"As a base runner myself, the moment I reached second base I began to fantasize about the potential contact at the plate. Every time I met a catcher in front of the plate throughout my career, the response I received from my teammates when returning to the dugout was a true hero's welcome." -Gabe KaplerWhat is a unit in Sports Betting
As of Tuesday's matches, the St. Louis Cardinals hold a record of 55-71, positioning them at the bottom of the National League Central standings. Their deficit from the top spot is a considerable 13.5 games, while they lag behind the fourth-positioned Pirates by a margin of 1.5 games. This decline is astonishing, especially for a franchise with a rich history and a recent division victory just last year. A recent post from MLB Now's social media account states that the Cardinals are currently on track to achieve something they haven't experienced since 1990: finishing in the last place.

Well, Strickland gave up another homer in the ninth. Wait, that was the Mariners game, still felt the same. This will be a long season for the Giants. BTW, didn't Belt hit something like .400 during spring training.
