    If we are going to get anything out of Piscotty this season now is the time. Would love to see him go on a tear, that would help our miniscule chances a great deal.

    I wonder how long it’ll be before the front office says something to the effect of getting Piscotty back is like a trade…and again if we don’t go on a tear I wonder how far we have to fall before the front office actually does something to make the team better…so far the last three big contracts that they’ve given out to Wong, Cecil, and Piscotty have fallen flat and Fowler unless he ups his D and stays healthy would be added to that list…

    This series is the season, for both teams. So far, looks like the Brew Crew is the only team that realizes it.

    3-2 in the 5th. Good base running tonight. Even Wong’s out at the plate was a good attempt which needed a well executed throw. Cards inching their way back in.

    Another example of Carlos Martinez not living up to his hype, billing, whatever you want to call it. The word Ace does not apply to him in any way, shape or form. One of the biggest games of the year and he’s walked five and given up three earned runs early.

    Whether anybody wants to admit it or not, Martinez simply cannot be counted on and is, at best, a #2 starter. We need an Ace right after we sign a big bat.

    One question, please. What big bat?

    Concur. He’s not a big game pitcher. Looks like he doesn’t know how to put a game plan together, just throws the pitch Yadi gives him, and not well some nights.

    Well, Giancarlo Stanton, of course. We are going to acquire him during the off season once Miami’s new owners make it clear they want to cut payroll. Piscotty, Weaver, and Grichuk to Miami for Stanton. That’s the plan according to the Rat

    QUESTION:

    I had a date tonight with a goddess so I missed the first 6-7 innings. I saw a brief replay of Wong being thrown out at the plate. It was clear, from what I saw, that the catcher was pretty much sitting in front of the plate, blocking it, not giving a lane. Did the Cardinals argue or challenge the play?

    I also sort of wondered why Wong didn’t just run him over.

    Congratulations on the date. No they didn’t challenge. Part of the Cardinal Way. You don’t try at the deadline and you just take everything lying down in the game.

    Now I was told that they were really close to a lot of trades. Granted the next line was we were waiting for others to make deals first.
