There's no easy way to put this. But, well, enjoy the baseball tonight. It might be the last game you see for a couple of days.
That's the weather forecast for St. Louis this week, with Game 6 set to be played on Wednesday. A lot can change in 48 hours, but right now things aren't looking so good. This has strategical implications too, as a rain out on Wednesday would push a possible Game 7 to Friday. The extra day of rest might have allow Derek Holland to come back for another game. Is that something Ron Washington is thinking about?
"It's Harry's game," Washington said. "I'm going to stay consistent. That's Harry's game."
Harry is Matt Harrison, and regardless what happens in Games 5 and 6, he's the starter for a potential Game 7. Harrison was the starting pitcher for Game 3, which the Cardinals won by 4,401 runs, but he did suffer from some outrageously bad luck, umpiring, and defense. Holland is the star of the present, but Harrison could be the star (or goat!) of the feature.
