    Well, it’s the final week of the regular season and the Cards have managed to limp their way into contention. I believe they have not gotten to 3 games over .500 yet this season, so that would be a good thing to have happen. Waino on the mound, so there’s a better chance than usual that it does. Still, this team may well have 10 games over the next 8 days to cover. Who will start the games? Waino, Kim, Gomber, Ponce, Cmart, Oviedo…?

    Thankfully the teams they play aren’t amazing, and hopefully it doesn’t come down to the last day doubleheader. It likely will, though.

    Hopefully Fowler and Gallegos will be activated today. They both could be very helpful this last week. Gio is obviously our best reliever and Dexter was playing well before going on the IL. His presence in the lineup will mean fewer AB’s for Carp since Edman will be at 3B.

    Fowler and Gallegos are being activated from the IL, optioned out are Justin Williams and Nabil Crismatt, and Roel Ramírez has been designated for assignment.

    Did Kaminsky pass through waivers?

    Seems like they would break up the outfielders hitting 7-8-9, especially with Carp hitting 6th. I guess there aren’t many hot hitters going no matter where you shuffle them.

    Yes, Kaminsky cleared waivers, but he is done for 2020. Further, as I mentioned in this story…

    “Note that Kaminsky will be eligible to return to minor league free agency this fall, though if both sides are agreeable, he could return to the Cardinals for 2021.”

    Oh what a difference a couple of days can make. Saturday evening it looked like we had one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.

    Now we are back in 2nd place, control our own destiny, got Waino toeing the rubber tonight, Dex and Gallegos back. Things are looking up. I think we are due to score some runs too.

    It’s a beautiful evening here in Northwest Arkansas with a hint of fall in the air. I just walked out back and picked some of the last of my pablano peppers and sweet 100 cherry tomatoes to put in the Carroll Shelby’s Texas Chili I’ve got simmering on the stove. Plan to eat it with some Nabisco Premium saltine crackers and shredded cheddar cheese right about the time of tonight’s first pitch.

    Wishing everybody a pleasant and healthy evening in this currently crazy world.

    Thankful for this place.

    Go Cards.

    Fowler was driving to KC? The only thing I want to see Dexter driving is the ball. What do you do if you’re driving down the freeway, minding your own business….and along side you Dexter Fowler motors on by? I know what I would have done the past 3 seasons, but this year is different, so I guess you just give him a tip of the cap and watch him sail on by.

    What’s for din-din you may ask? How about creamy garlic shrimp & pasta, red snapper, asparagus spears, mashed potatoes, and cinnamon apple pie?

    I’ll trade you my dinner for your’s, Tinkster. That Carroll Shelby’s Texas chili sounds like a winner. Toss in some raw onions with that shredded cheese too.

    Are you sure you’re not making up that menu, Pugs? Who cooked?

    Tinky’s dinner sounds doable (and delicious).

    Your menu sounds delicious.

    Unlike our lineup with Carpenter hitting sixth (rather than 9th), I like the sound of both of those didn’t-dins. We did homemade bean burritos for our “Meatless Monday” fare. The wifey and I try to stick to vegetarian every Monday. We do have some nice additions with fresh roasted Anaheim Chile’s picked up yesterday at our local garden center, and avacado. Plus the salsa is entirely home grown from our garden.

    You’re looking at the cook, UCONN. Wifey not coming back until 9p tonight, so I put together a nice little leftover medley from the weekend. I still think Tinky’s chili dinner sounds better. Let’s hope our Bird’s have a lot cooking in tonight’s game. This game troubles me. I wouldn’t bet the game if someone had a gun to my head

    You probably would never have known. My guess is his vehicles have tinted windows.

    P.S. Speaking of – if Carroll Shelby was half as successful in chili as he was in cars, that should be one tasty meal!

    I am impressed, Pugs.

    Marp is a plus-.390 hitter at Kauffman Stadium for his career. Maybe Matheny would like him in Royals blue

    Carpenter gets us on the board!
    Not to be overlooked, that was Carp singling in front of Yadi’s game winning HR yesterday.
