Does anyone know why the Sunday game starts at 3pm CT (4pm ET)? That seems very odd considering it is a get away day. Does it conflict with a Steelers game or something?

All I know is that when the original 60-game schedule came out, this game was only one which had TBD instead of the actual game time. It remained TBD in the post-COVID 58-game redo. The Steelers play at 1 pm ET at home (with no fans) so avoiding the two games at the same time for TV is a reasonable guess.September 20, 2020 at 7:20 am #140987stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Well, let’s see if Jack can bounce back from his poor outing last time and clinch the series. It would be nice to see the Cards win 4 games they should against the Pirates. It feels like the Cards have hit Musgrove well in the past. Paul Dejong has not, for sure (.063 career average). I’d give him a breather. My preferred lineup:
C Yadi (unless hurt, then Knizner)

Losing the first game of a 5 game series……and then coming right back to win the next 4….on the road. As far as rarities go, it certainly does not measure up to a 56 game hitting streak, 714 homers, or even 2 grand slams in an inning by the same player. But, I think it’s not as common as one may think. Matter of fact, maybe if we reflected back many decades thru baseball annals, we may not discover it’s occurrence. Unless one of you know, this may be a task for Augustus and our good friends over at the esteemed Elias Sports Bureau to tackle.September 20, 2020 at 11:12 am #141006RatsbuddyParticipantFree
What do you guys think of Verlander’s chances of ever being a quality starting pitcher again?
r/Esteemed RatSeptember 20, 2020 at 12:07 pm #141011
I wouldn’t count him out. He would be 39 when he comes back in 2022. He could still have something left in the tank. Look at Waino.
By the way he is owed $33M next year and now can’t pitch. The Astros had better have insurance on him. Ouch. That is a budget killer.September 20, 2020 at 1:04 pm #141017

Molina starting is surprising
Williams gets a start before Fowler returns
Bader looked poor at the plate last night, good choice to sit himSeptember 20, 2020 at 1:22 pm #141021bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
I thought Bader was the starting center fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals.September 20, 2020 at 1:50 pm #141022
Wong may be tired or still feeling the effects of his hurt side but I would rather see him in the lineup than Carp. Every PA Carp gets allows him to get closer to vesting in 2022. I know he still must get 550 PA’s next year but still why take chances? It isn’t like he is contributing much anyway.September 20, 2020 at 2:38 pm #141024
Wong did go 2 for 4 (single, triple) vs Musgrove on opening day, Carp 0 for 3 (BB, K)September 20, 2020 at 3:35 pm #141025PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
This starting hurler from Pittsburgh “Mus-groove” a pitch or two every game with such a lofty era. Let’s not make him look like the second coming of Dock Ellis, like we’ve been known to do.September 20, 2020 at 3:39 pm #141026

We’ve beat him before Pugs, but always better to get to a SP earlySeptember 20, 2020 at 3:46 pm #141028

Captain clutch with a 2 run HR!
