This has nothing to do with the outcome this evening, but it is simply amazing just how quickly 46,000 raving lunatic fanatics wearing red can become mute. The deafening roar changes to recording studio hush at the crack of an opponents bat like no other venue in sports. I wonder why that is?
The raucous rooters in Philly were silenced tonight by the Cardinals' rally. It reminded me of the Giants effect on the crowd last year in the 2010 NLCS. The contrast is simply stunning.
