Our new RF in 2018 just hit his 47th dinger of the year in Philadelphia earlier today.August 24, 2017 at 3:16 pm #31514
Carpenter remains out.

I like it. For me, watching Carpenter play is unexciting, almost boring. Sorry if that offends some people.August 24, 2017 at 5:50 pm #31523

I love watching him hit. He’s such a consummate hitter.August 24, 2017 at 7:08 pm #31529
Not that I like Carp unavailable, but this lineup has more potential to jump start the team early in games with slightly better OBP/OPS at the top and significantly better ability to make things happen on the base paths.

Surprise, surprise…Gyorko knocks in the first run of the game against the Padres.August 24, 2017 at 7:25 pm #31533
IMO, Wong has the right profile to be a good leadoff hitter – if he can grow into it. (His OBP this season is almost .400 – and Pham’s is!) Then again, we thought Fowler was going to be that guy – until Carpenter reinforced the idea that he can only function at peak performance batting first. It is weird to think about arguably the team’s best hitter being a block both defensively and in the batting order.August 24, 2017 at 7:37 pm #31535
Bases loaded, c-Mart muffs an easy play at the plate, then infield hit, now 2-1. Should be in the dugout.August 24, 2017 at 7:42 pm #31536
Wong great play for out #3. Damage limited. Need to come back quickly with a run in the bottom half. We’ll see…August 24, 2017 at 7:42 pm #31537
Tough way to lose the lead, but Wong could have saved another run or two with his inning-ending play.August 24, 2017 at 8:11 pm #31539

Wong for the gold glove? Molina too most likely.August 24, 2017 at 8:12 pm #31540
Cards came back to tie, but could not extend. Hard to believe that with his speed, Pham could hit into three double plays, but that is his evening so far.August 24, 2017 at 8:12 pm #31541
Not Pham’s night.August 24, 2017 at 8:17 pm #31542
Through 7/9, here are their rankings in the SABR Defensive Index, which makes up 25% of the Gold Glove scoring.
#1 Yasmani Grandal 7.6
#4 Yadier Molina 3.4
NL second base
#1 DJ LeMahieu 9.1
#10 Kolten Wong -0.8August 24, 2017 at 9:00 pm #31544
Top of the 9th now, Padres leading 3-2, no outs and runners on 1st and 3rd…Duke pitching…now Bowman…August 24, 2017 at 9:05 pm #31545
Another HUGE doubleplay hit into by Molina. He’s done that a million times over the years, killing rallies with DP balls. I was yelling at the screen for him to bunt – BUNT! – but he doesn’t and then proceeds to hit into the twin killing. The last time I was yelling at him to BUNT he hit into a triple play.
And then sloppy fundamentals in the top of the 9th by the Cardinals for the 100th time the last couple of years.
This team is hard to stomach at times. But at least Cincinnati rallied for three runs off of Strop in the last of the 8th and beat the Cubs 4-2.

Score is now 4-2 Padres, one out and runner on 1st and 2nd…top of the 9th…August 24, 2017 at 9:12 pm #31547
You just knew in a close game what this pen would do.August 24, 2017 at 9:13 pm #31548
Cards blew a lot of chances tonight. DeJong should’ve been on third after Fowler’s hit, and he would’ve probably scored later to give the Cards the lead. Instead he doesn’t score and the Pads take advantage of the Cards poor play the next inning to lead. So frustrating to lose to a poor team like this.August 24, 2017 at 9:18 pm #31549
A homerun by Grichuk has brought the Cards back to a 4-3 deficit with nobody out. Maybe there is a glimmer of hope. Doesn’t appear to be much hope for the bullpen.August 24, 2017 at 9:24 pm #31550
The Cardinals were outscored 18-13 while losing 2 of 3 at home to 57-70 San Diego.August 24, 2017 at 9:27 pm #31551
We need a time machine to send the front office back to last fall. Then they need to get serious.August 24, 2017 at 9:32 pm #31553
And…we’re back to one game over .500, if the playoffs started today we wouldn’t qualify for them…August 24, 2017 at 9:36 pm #31554
Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY has a harsh assessment.
“The #STLCards lose 2 of 3 to #Padres at home, all but mathematically eliminating playoff hopes”
