What did the announcers say about how many times the Natties had a runner in scoring position, like they were 4 for 16?February 25, 2020 at 2:47 pm #123519February 25, 2020 at 2:54 pm #123520

sad to say Baders strikeouts returned today.February 25, 2020 at 3:44 pm #123523
Where is Pugs? Looks like Fagalde is coming in.February 25, 2020 at 3:52 pm #123526
Very good outing by FagaldeFebruary 25, 2020 at 3:54 pm #123527858booyahParticipantFree
FaGalde according to ESPN box score.
Also Cecil returned to the norm. lolFebruary 25, 2020 at 4:01 pm #123529February 25, 2020 at 4:15 pm #123533bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
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?February 25, 2020 at 4:22 pm #123535
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.February 25, 2020 at 4:25 pm #123536
Well, this approach backfired miserably as both Elledge and Reyes were not good today.
FWIW: Reyes’s delayed entry into today’s game was the result of Elledge being up and hot to come in mid-2nd for Gomber if necessary. It wasn’t, but he was ready, so rather than sit him and go back to him later, Reyes pushed back an inning. “100%” about Elledge.

Did I miss something, where has Tyler Webb been? I don’t recall him getting an inning so far.February 25, 2020 at 5:22 pm #123540BlackHillsCardParticipantFree
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.February 25, 2020 at 8:50 pm #123542

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.February 25, 2020 at 8:52 pm #123543

I suggest you try out my approach. Keep Reyes expectations very low.February 25, 2020 at 9:49 pm #123544bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
Hope Edman is working out in CF on fields 1 and 6 in the mornings.February 26, 2020 at 5:54 am #123547Minuteman3ParticipantFree

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.February 26, 2020 at 7:20 am #123550

Unfortunately, that’s about all we can do anymore. The Cards have been cursed when it comes to top prospects.February 26, 2020 at 7:33 am #123551
Just want to distinguish the difference between “expectations” and “hopes”. One can still have the latter while being realistic about the former.February 26, 2020 at 8:06 am #123556
This is the first split squad day of the spring for the #stlcards. One group stays home vs. the Marlins with audio streaming. The others travel to West Palm to face the Astros. That game is televised on AT&T SW, and therefore on https://t.co/ztpoPcoaKB, as well.

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.February 26, 2020 at 9:15 am #123567
I like lineup #1 better than #2. I guess squad 2 is what we’ll get to watch if we can though.February 26, 2020 at 9:16 am #123568

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.February 26, 2020 at 9:34 am #123569thejagerParticipantPaid - Annual
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.
