I guess it’s getting to be crunch time, and Schildt will employ relievers on back to back games.September 13, 2020 at 3:44 pm #139947
Remember there are 14 innings to cover tomorrow… and your starters are Kim straight off the IL and Ponce, not known for going more than four or five at most.September 13, 2020 at 3:46 pm #139948
bccran, I’ve never seen Sosa play anywhere other than the infield, but what has been happening in Springfield this summer is anyone’s guess.September 13, 2020 at 3:57 pm #139949
with Edman getting so much outfield time, Sosa as backup SS would be a nice backfillSeptember 13, 2020 at 3:57 pm #139950
The Cards’ perfect record when scoring 5 runs or more may be in jeopardy today. Gotta keep the offense going.September 13, 2020 at 4:05 pm #139951
What the heck, are these guys not stretching out in the bullpen. Its getting rediculous.September 13, 2020 at 4:05 pm #139952
May be another groin injury, this time with Gant. Really bad timing.September 13, 2020 at 4:09 pm #139953
This is why in my mind, you cant just keep cycling through pitchers. Reyes should have been left in there to get through the inning. Managing like every game is a playoff game isnt good.September 13, 2020 at 4:11 pm #139954

How many pitchers are going to wind up on the IL before all of this is said and done? The pitching staff is majorly screwed losing Gant and Gallegos this week.September 13, 2020 at 4:12 pm #139955September 13, 2020 at 4:15 pm #139956
Sure would be nice to have the runs wasted on the missed ball in the OF earlier. Looking like the Cards will have to outslug the Reds if their perfect record adoring 5+ is going to continue. Miller has been awful since coming in.September 13, 2020 at 4:16 pm #139957
From the look of what i saw, gant is more than likely done.September 13, 2020 at 4:18 pm #139958
So our current closer is arguably Miller, who is issuing free passes, a wild pitch and loud outs. I guess “depth” was a nice term while it lasted.
Someone give Hicks a callSeptember 13, 2020 at 4:18 pm #139959
I should have also noted that before this, someone would have needed to be sent down to make room for Kim (and Ponce) tomorrow. Instead it could be Gant going to the IL and the pen would have one fewer arm heading into a very, busy stretch. Not good no matter now one looks at it.

Twitter rumor is it might be his groin which begs the question what the hell is happening with the pitchers throwing out their groins.September 13, 2020 at 4:25 pm #139961gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
Well our vaunted bullpen blows a gasket today.
Blows the lead.
Another guy gets hurt.
No fresh arms for the doubleheader tomorrow.
Just another day in 2020.September 13, 2020 at 4:25 pm #139962
Double gone bad. That’s a top 10 CF’r this seasonSeptember 13, 2020 at 4:26 pm #139963
This team is screwed. Better hope that the starters can somehow go 6 innings in all the DH games coming up or the offense is going to need to score 8+ runs every game.September 13, 2020 at 4:28 pm #139964
I blame Dr. George Paletta! (Is that how it is done, Twitter?) 😉September 13, 2020 at 4:38 pm #139965
Right groin for Gant. Day to day. Of course, no IL move would be disclosed until tomorrow, anyway…September 13, 2020 at 4:39 pm #139966September 13, 2020 at 4:41 pm #139967bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
Crazy, Crazy “season”.September 13, 2020 at 4:43 pm #139968
Here is another possible scenario. Replace Dean with a pitcher and go with 16 arms (17 for DH) and just 12 position players. What do folks think of this idea, recognizing that nine of the 12 position players have to play in every game?September 13, 2020 at 4:44 pm #139969bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
Good idea.September 13, 2020 at 4:46 pm #139970
