So, what are the scenarios here?
1) If we win this one – what?
2) If we lose this one – what?

Please check the “2020 Playoff Seedings” thread right here on this forum. It is very easy to find. EuroDandy and so_cal_cards_fan are doing a great job keeping everyone informed.September 27, 2020 at 7:05 am #142095
I think having the extra day off would be huge for this team, hopefully they win today and get it over with. Facing the Padres wouldn’t be easy, but three game funkiness happens all the time and they are a very young team.
But to the task at hand…the Cards are due for the “good” cycle of their back and forth offensive output. You’d think the Cards would be happy to face a lefty with all the right handed hitters in the lineup, but they’ve been weak against lefty starters this year (.611 OPS vs .722 OPS against righty starters). Hopefully Gomber pitches as well as he did his last start and we get a couple of big flies to seal a playoff spot.September 27, 2020 at 9:06 am #142103bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Gomber has pitched well, and if he has command then we win this game. If he falls behind in counts then things could get out of hand in a hurry. But I think we will do enough to get this one, and the offense gets a few runs. Nothing like 7 or 8, but maybe 4 or 5 and we can avoid Motor City.September 27, 2020 at 11:01 am #142109RatsbuddyParticipantFree
So, if the Cardinals win this one then they are in the playoffs – correct?

YesSeptember 27, 2020 at 12:38 pm #142121
If we clinch a playoff spot today then we have our rotation set up the way we want for the opening series with Jack, Waino, and Kim ready to go. But what if we have to play tomorrow? Does Shildt go with Ponce, Oviedo, or Woodford with everything on the line in order to keep our big 3 rested?September 27, 2020 at 12:46 pm #142123
I think if they have to play tomorrow, you have to go with Kim on short rest. Can’t chance it with two bullpen games or Ponce on even shorter rest.September 27, 2020 at 12:55 pm #142128jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual
Last time I checked we were 3-7 vs a LH SP’r. It’s like we have no DH for that scenario, Carp and Miller usually sit and who protects goldy?
Carlson at cleanup, this is what it’s came to. He may do great, but look what it says about the rest of the vet roster vs LHP’s. O’Neill at DH and he has reverse splits to date for his career, much like DeJong mentioned above.September 27, 2020 at 1:18 pm #142131
14 of the 15 MLB games today start at 2pm. The Tigers-Royals games started at noon. Why is that? Is it because they wanted to give the Tigers a break since they might have to travel back to Detroit to play us tomorrow even though logic would have had the games in St. Louis?
Oh well, their master plan isn’t working. The Tigers and Royals are currently in a rain delay.

Because it’s the least impactful game there could possibly be?September 27, 2020 at 1:29 pm #142135Euro DandyParticipantFree
Royals said they moved the game up in hopes of avoiding the rain.September 27, 2020 at 2:17 pm #142138
We’re underway in the most important game of the year so far. Gomber gets the fly out by Garcia.September 27, 2020 at 2:23 pm #142141
Yelich singles, and now Ryan Braun is driving the pitch count up for Gomber. Foul after foul.September 27, 2020 at 2:24 pm #1421431964cardsParticipantPaid - Annual
Nice double play to end the top half of the first.September 27, 2020 at 2:24 pm #142144
A really nice double play turned by Edman, Wong and Goldy to get out of it with no further damage.September 27, 2020 at 2:25 pm #142145
It would be nice to see the Cards jump on this middling lefty early. Get out to a lead and give the pitching staff some cushion.September 27, 2020 at 2:29 pm #142149

Mets-Nationals and Rockies-Dbacks are just as meaningless and they didn’t get a time change.September 27, 2020 at 2:29 pm #142150
Goldy with a base hit after two quick outs. Dylan up.September 27, 2020 at 2:29 pm #142151

Makes sense I guess but it didn’t work.September 27, 2020 at 2:37 pm #142155so_cal_cards_fanParticipantFree
Dylan made good contact 103 off the bat.
Does anyone have the link that shows the hit probability based on launch angle and velocity?September 27, 2020 at 2:39 pm #142157
Gomber through 2 with an ok pitch count. I’d be happy with 5 from him today, and thrilled with 6.September 27, 2020 at 2:42 pm #142158
Cards making decent contact but they are just barely getting to where the Brewers can catch them. A little more line or a little more carry on the Yadi or Carlson swings and it’s extra bases.
