Florida Marlins defeat St. Louis Cardinals, 5-2

Having lost five of their last six games and raising concerns about their ability to conquer effective pitching and handle winning teams, the Cardinals are starting to feel a little pressure.

I suspect this much for one reason: Manager Tony La Russa used his postgame session to make an emphatic "I Love My Team" address, one clearly devised to calm Cardinal Nation and Cardinals players. As usual the remarks were carried on Tony TV, also known as Fox Sports Midwest.
