Lance Lynn (10-6, 3.05) vs. LHP Clayton Richard (6-12, 4.84) 7:15 p.m. FOX Sports MidwestAugust 21, 2017 at 5:27 pm #31253stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
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.August 22, 2017 at 8:24 am #31282
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.August 22, 2017 at 6:02 pm #31313RatsbuddyParticipantFree
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 5th and we’re down 4-3…August 22, 2017 at 9:08 pm #31319
Bottom of the 6th and Molina ties it up 4-4 with a solo HR…August 22, 2017 at 9:19 pm #31320
Top of the 7th, we’re down 5-4…with two men on and no outs for the Padres…August 22, 2017 at 9:21 pm #31321
Every time the offense pulls back into a tie, the pitching gives up another run.August 22, 2017 at 9:29 pm #31323
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.August 22, 2017 at 9:30 pm #31325
Cardinals pitching is record setting bad now, up and down the staff.August 22, 2017 at 9:36 pm #31326
Cards down 10-4 top of the 7th. All we need is 5 bloops and a blast!August 22, 2017 at 9:38 pm #31327
We lose tonight’s game and we’re only 1 game above .500…August 22, 2017 at 9:53 pm #31328RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Reds bullpen is terrible tonight too. Reds lead 6-3 in the 7th and now trail 13-6 in the 9th.August 22, 2017 at 9:53 pm #31329858booyahParticipantFree
And the Marlins will be .500
This team is going in the tank.August 22, 2017 at 9:56 pm #31330
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.August 22, 2017 at 9:59 pm #31331
Top of the 8th and now down 12-4…August 22, 2017 at 10:00 pm #31332
Solarte is a one-man murderers row tonight.August 22, 2017 at 10:21 pm #31333
Well, even without Solarte’s six RBI, the Cards would have still lost, 6-4. 😉August 22, 2017 at 10:23 pm #31334
Been a long time that a Cardinal team was this hard to watch.August 22, 2017 at 10:47 pm #31335colhuskerParticipantFree
Just a bad bad loss.August 22, 2017 at 11:23 pm #31336CardsRedSox4EverParticipantFree
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.August 23, 2017 at 12:26 am #31337mspaidParticipantFree
“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.August 23, 2017 at 7:47 am #31339
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.August 23, 2017 at 9:32 am #31346thejagerParticipantPaid - Annual
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
