Good win keep it going!April 13, 2018 at 8:49 pm #48750
The Cards turned it into a nail-biter, but escaped with a 5-3 victory. Save to Norris, win to Weaver. St. Louis improves to 7-7 on the season.April 13, 2018 at 8:52 pm #48751stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Whew! Good to win the tight game and get back to .500. Now to move a game over tomorrow.April 13, 2018 at 9:02 pm #48752RatsbuddyParticipantFree

Norris gets the called 3rd strike to close it. Had to laugh at Chris Welsh, Reds analyst, saying “That’s too high. That’s too high for a call to end the ball game.” — as if batters shouldn’t be forced to swing at strikes in the 9th with two outs and two strikes. FoxTrax had it as a strike on the edge of the zone. In fairness to Welsh, I didn’t watch much of the game and don’t know if that call was consistent with how the rest of the game was called.April 13, 2018 at 9:19 pm #48756
Can’t take a close pitch like that with the game on the line.April 13, 2018 at 9:32 pm #48757BlackHillsCardParticipantFree
I’ve been largely disappointed in many of Ozuna’s bats lately. He had a chance to make the lead a lot bigger there in the 9th and K’d. Too many bad at bats from him lately.April 13, 2018 at 10:38 pm #48759SoonerinNCParticipantPaid - Annual
There was no consistency from this umpire. Even if the square is not accurate there were far too many pitches that were balls one time and strikes in exactly the same spot later.
Good game by Weaver. The thing for him is to throw fewer pitches per inning. A guy with his command should pitch more innings. In time he should learn to pitch to contact more.
I’m not worried about Ozuna. He will hit. Strikes out quite a lot but nothing new for him.
Good to see Munoz whack it. Would be good for him to platoon with Wong until Wong gets it together. He has been pretty worthless so far.April 14, 2018 at 6:49 am #48761
Ozuna currently has a 12-game hitting streak and is batting .302. Despite less power than expected, he is on pace for 104 RBI as I noted above. He has zero walks and his K rate is 28.6%, which would both be career worsts. (His career averages are 7% and 22.1%, respectively.) Of course, it is still very early. Perhaps he is pushing it a bit with his new team.April 14, 2018 at 8:53 am #48792Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
I liked the strike zone last night. It was pretty wide. I would much rather games being decided by players swinging the bat than being a ball four being called by a pitch a quarter inch off. And no, I was not a pitcher in high school. Or ever.April 14, 2018 at 9:11 am #48794PadsFSParticipantFree
Ozuna is going to have a ton of LOB with the three guys hitting in front of him. They are likely all top 5 in OBP in baseball for their spot in the lineup.April 14, 2018 at 10:02 am #48805bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual

I almost think he should get some playing time and sit Carpenter. I want Wong in there for defense. Carpenter’s game is offense, and when he’s not doing that he is not worth much. He did seem to be on the ball better last night, so maybe he can come out of it and start hitting line drives.
When Gyorko returns, I would like to see Munoz play everyday at Memphis. But then Memphis has a nice infield now, so he would knock out probably Mejia or Wisdom from playing as much. Maybe you give Wisdom some work at first base. Nice problem to have though.April 15, 2018 at 1:37 am #48878Cards667ParticipantFree
I was asking because I’m from the Evansville area. Played Jasper a few times back in the day.
