I think the horseshoe has officially been removed. Having watched most of the games this year, this was a flawed team in many ways, and along with all the injuries, we are seeing all that come back to bite us.
If you look up and down the lineup at this point, most of the guys are completely useless, especially the last three games. As for the Giants, 1-8 are dangerous and playing their best baseball, except for Posey and Pence. The Cardinals demeanor throughout this game so far show me that they shouldn't have even put their uniforms on. They were beat the second the Giants won game 5.
