    What did the announcers say about how many times the Natties had a runner in scoring position, like they were 4 for 16?

    Saw that Cecil took the loss, although did not see or hear anything regarding the game. Is it the same old Brett – possibly the worst free agent signing in Cardinal history?

    Cecil was behind on the count to the first 3 or 4 hitters, and walked in a run. He has a mountain to climb to make the team IMO. There are just too many more deserving candidates at this early point in camp.

    Well, this approach backfired miserably as both Elledge and Reyes were not good today.

    Did I miss something, where has Tyler Webb been? I don’t recall him getting an inning so far.

    So I didn’t get to watch the game today but looking at the box score I have to admit I’m worried about Reyes. I know its only ST but after the past 3-4 years with him this is the not the start I or anyone had hoped for.

    No, he hasn’t pitched. Neither has Brebbia or Miller. Or Griffin Roberts or Ricardo Sanchez. Or Nabil Crismatt or Akeem Bostick. So goes it with 39 pitchers in camp.

    I suggest you try out my approach. Keep Reyes expectations very low.

    Hope Edman is working out in CF on fields 1 and 6 in the mornings.

    Good to worry about Reyes but also include Cecil in your negative thoughts. A couple others should not be dismissed also. IIRC Danny said each pitcher had a run counted against them today. Haven’t seen the box yet.

    Unfortunately, that’s about all we can do anymore. The Cards have been cursed when it comes to top prospects.

    Just want to distinguish the difference between “expectations” and “hopes”. One can still have the latter while being realistic about the former.

    I don’t know if will come in to play during the regular season but Shildt seems interested in taking a look at Yadi batting 4th. This is the second or third time this spring he has tried it.

    I like lineup #1 better than #2. I guess squad 2 is what we’ll get to watch if we can though.

    I can’t imagine that Yadi will hit there during the season. It has to be that they want to get his at bats in early.

    Love seeing Julio get the start at 1b and HErrera at Dh

    yuck yuck from some pitchers yesterday who are guys if we want to feel like having a great pen is a big strength….

    Cecil…control is his problem..i guess that happens when you basically dont pitch enough for 3yrs….break on the balls is still great but he cant set anyone up to use it because he cant locate anything else… still…he didnt entirely implode

    Reyes…control too…i guess it is early, and still being rusty is a real thing…but i didnt see anything yesterday that made me think he can even be a thought for the rotation. without being able to get through batters on less pitches i dont see it… still early…still great talent…

    as for hitting…yuck again…what 5 hits> before the couple in the 9th? And how many were Ravelo? The DeJong HR again was basically the whole offense combined with a Munoz solo HR

    None of that screams we have made any improvements to the offense or offensive strategy. just running into hanging pitches for HRs is not a good strategy. Have we even put together 3 hits in an inning once?

    Wong’s triple AB was nice to see, Ravelo is having a nice run but is not a difference maker.
