6:15 p.m. RHP John Gant (5-5, 3.56) vs. RHP Joe Musgrove (5-7, 3.31) FOX Sports Midwest/MLB Network/KMOXAugust 30, 2018 at 6:19 am #67424stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
This was the game I was penciling in as the best chance to lose in this series. Hopefully Gant will pitch well and the offense wakes up to collect another series win!!August 30, 2018 at 7:22 am #67433
Gant outpitched Kluber earlier this year in a Cardinal klubbing of Cleveland. Even with all of the injuries, I like Gant’s chances in the series decisive game vs MusGrove….Birds win it going away 7-3.August 30, 2018 at 8:57 am #67442wagee12Participant
In unrelated news, Donaldson has been placed on waivers. Any interest?August 30, 2018 at 9:15 am #67443
wagee, there have have been several posts regarding the Donaldson situation over on the trades thread.August 30, 2018 at 10:18 am #67448thejagerParticipantPaid - Annual
the lineup we run out there today could be pretty uninspiring…
Yadi…though i wonder if he might sit, he seems banged up
Wisdom (3b over Munoz or GGarcia)
Munoz (2b.. over GGarcia)
Definitely has a shot at being our most unexpected lineup possibility if we went back and asked what the lineup would be in ST for right nowAugust 30, 2018 at 3:02 pm #67467RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Milwaukee wins today. 2-1 over the Reds in 11 innings.
And speaking of the Reds, did anybody see the amazing turn of events in the Brewers/Reds game last night? Lorenzen is going to bunt but pulls the bat back because the pitch was up and in. The ball hits his bat, he fouls it off and even the Reds announcers said that’s strike three. But Homeplate umpire Tony Randazzo, and the entire crew, ruled because he pulled the bat back he wasn’t actually trying to bunt so it remained just strike two. On the next pitch Lorenzen hits a three run homer. How Craig Counsell didn’t get tossed I have no idea.
Cubs in Atlanta to make up a rained out game from several weeks ago.

What secrets does Greg Garcia know that keeps him in the starting lineup?August 30, 2018 at 3:33 pm #67472NJ315Participant
I don’t know but it is getting old fast.August 30, 2018 at 3:51 pm #67475
He is LH and plays a pretty solid 2B. That is pretty much what he has going for him.August 30, 2018 at 4:05 pm #67478NJ315Participant
Ok…but is 9 for 55 in last 30 games.August 30, 2018 at 4:15 pm #67480Bw52ParticipantPaid - Annual
Maybe Munoz is too sore to play today.Plius who really wants to see Carpenter at 2B? Not me.It`s bad enough with Carp at 3B.August 30, 2018 at 4:19 pm #67482
Just from the eye test Munoz seems pretty sub par defensively to me.August 30, 2018 at 4:21 pm #67485BlackHillsCardParticipantFreeAugust 30, 2018 at 4:24 pm #67486Bw52ParticipantPaid - Annual
Munoz is versatile but his glove work is a bit lagging.Maybe with more reps defensively he can improve.With better defense Munoz can be the “swiss army knife” replacing Greg Garcia next season.August 30, 2018 at 6:32 pm #67496
2-2 pitch to Bell called a ball….trust me when I say it was right down Broadway! Now Bell walks to extend the inning….bases full of Pirates with 2 outs. Moran strikes out on a high 2-2 heater! No damage done on the scoreboard…..just yet. 31 pitches is not the way Gant wanted his 1st inning to go.August 30, 2018 at 6:37 pm #67498jj-cf-stlParticipantFree
Munoz is the better SS of the two. If Mo upgrades 3B, Jedd as the U.I. and Garcia non-tendered, traded, whatever.August 30, 2018 at 6:38 pm #67500
Takes Musgrove only 10 heaves to set the Cards down 1-2-3 in their half of the 1st frame.August 30, 2018 at 6:45 pm #67502
Don’t mind Gant being a copycat in this department, as he too duplicates his counterpart’s 10 pitch 1-2-3 inning.August 30, 2018 at 6:52 pm #67505
Musgrove once again has his way with our Birds as it’s another 1-2-3 inning. The Pirate hurler is perfect thru 2 frames….and when I say “perfect”, I mean “perfect”, as he has thrown 18 pitches…..and all of them for strikes.August 30, 2018 at 6:54 pm #67506
Gant is getting royally squeezed here!August 30, 2018 at 6:54 pm #67507jj-cf-stlParticipantFree
Good play by O’Neill to hold marte at 2BAugust 30, 2018 at 6:58 pm #67508
Anyone know what Gant is registering on the gun tonight?August 30, 2018 at 7:00 pm #67509
First 2 Bucs reach base via singles, but then Gant literally mows thdm down 1-2-3. Scoreless heading to thd bottom of the 3rd.
