    This closing stretch is a nice breather of a schedule in a lot of ways. Of course, they have had “easy” stretches before that they choked on too. It would be nice to sweep the Pads.

    One way to look at difference in the 2017 season: Following an off day due to schedule or rainout, the team’s record is 3-13.

    The Cardinals rightfielder in 2018 just hit his 46th homerun of the year in the first game of a DH in Philadelphia earlier today.

    Bottom of the 6th and Molina ties it up 4-4 with a solo HR…

    Top of the 7th, we’re down 5-4…with two men on and no outs for the Padres…

    Every time the offense pulls back into a tie, the pitching gives up another run.

    Duke with and 0-2 pitch right down the middle. You just can’t win with that. He’s awful tonight and has one-upped Bowman this inning.

    Cardinals pitching is record setting bad now, up and down the staff.

    Cards down 10-4 top of the 7th. All we need is 5 bloops and a blast!

    We lose tonight’s game and we’re only 1 game above .500…

    Reds bullpen is terrible tonight too. Reds lead 6-3 in the 7th and now trail 13-6 in the 9th.

    And the Marlins will be .500

    This team is going in the tank.

    1.) Did Bowman really walk the lead off man?
    2.) Did Duke really give up
    a 3 run home run on an 0-2 pitch?
    3.) Did DeJong really leave the bat on his shoulder on a 3rd strike with the bases loaded?

    This team is difficult to understand.

    Solarte is a one-man murderers row tonight.

    Well, even without Solarte’s six RBI, the Cards would have still lost, 6-4. 😉

    Been a long time that a Cardinal team was this hard to watch.

    Weaver up tomorrow. R. Horton says Weaver is most important player on the roster right now and key to any remaining success. I disagree. Our relief pitching is so horrendous, even Kershaw, Scherzer and Greinke couldn’t save the Cardinals right now.

    “Been a long time that a Cardinal team was this hard to watch.”

    Not that long. They were hard to watch last year and they did nothing about it in the off season.

    Prediction: They’ll be just as hard to watch next year.

    Last year, they were in the playoff hunt until the last day of the season. Pitching was key. Predicting a bad team for next year is very silly.

    bad loss…but really it was Lynn hitting the shirts of two Padres and getting himself into a count where he had to throw a weak fastball over the plate to a guy who as it turns out was deciding to be on fire yesterday.

    Even then we were tied when Lynn left

    relief corps was the problem, and it’s tough to not understand by how much they have been stressed lately

    I’m thinking Rosenthal to have TJ or at least be out for the year ie. 60 day DL. Call up Flaherty to take Leake’s next turn. When LEake comes back send him or Weaver to the pen. Make a decision on Wainwright before the week is out. If he isnt really going to be able to pitch 60 day DL him. we can at least clear a couple 40man spots for guys like Flaherty and Montgomery. Release Gilmartin and then bring up Alcantara or whoever the best flamethrower is right now. Maybe Hudson. Put them in the pen to shake it up.

    Gilmartin, Rosy, Wainwright are three 40 man spots if we want to get them.
    Flaherty, Montgomery, Alcantara/Hudson

    If we really think Wainwright can come back, what is his role? I’d love to have him close as he has the head for it. I think he’d be worth a look, btu if he cant get it above 90 I dont see the point. Maybe he could still work his magic for 3 outs. It’d be fun to try, but if he isnt healthy then we cant try it. And if we cant do that with him and he cant go 5 good innings, then 60 day DL him and let him be a cheerleader and extra coach for the younger guys, maybe even send him out to the pen during the games
