Hey, it’s a new season! A lot of obstacles for watching afternoon Weekday games. Just read about Reitz — wish I hadn’t signed on. But it’s good to see the Birds have scored some runs and will hopefully get the last three outs to start the season off right.April 1, 2021 at 6:33 pm #156813Carter Le GrandParticipantFree
5-3 Pittsburgh your happy final from Wrigley this afternoon. All 3 cub tallies coming via the sac fly route. The hapless ones could only muster 2 measely hits off 7 Buc hurlers. Howard the victor with Hendricks getting saddled with the loss. Hayes for the Pirates with the game’s lone round tripper…..a towering 1st inning 2 run blow

I see Reyes has kept the slim figure. Hope that leads to a slim ERA.April 1, 2021 at 6:39 pm #156815
Anything for you, Carter!April 1, 2021 at 6:41 pm #156816stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Reyes has the Reds down to their last out. His stuff has so much movement, but he struggles to hit the zone. Now 3-2 to Moustakas…and a walk.April 1, 2021 at 6:43 pm #156817stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Reyes now has Aquino down 1-2…and the fastball for a K! That’s a winner! Cards 11, Reds 6.
Cards 1-0 on the year.April 1, 2021 at 6:43 pm #156818
Yeah, Reyes can close. 11-6 Birds your merry final from the Queen City.April 1, 2021 at 6:44 pm #1568191982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual

Very nice win. Congrats, Cards.April 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm #156823RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Just read about the passing of Kenny Reitz.
Very sad. Loved to watch him play 3rdbase back in the 70s. Arenado could learn a thing or two.

Reitz and Arenado were pretty comparable defensively, Rat. Both pretty slow of foot too. I think Arenado has more money though. Tough losing Reitz, especially at just 69. Anyone know if he had any heart issues?April 1, 2021 at 7:26 pm #156828blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Just got home and perused the box score. Wasn’t it me that’s been saying our outfield will be hitting taters left and right. It does look like Flaherty had a rough outing but pen was good. Just from box score. I’ll read up chat after din din.April 2, 2021 at 11:34 am #156853gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
O’Neill is hitting fifth in the lineup. That isn’t too bad
True but DeJong has no business batting cleanup as he sucks at hitting baseballs
Tyler might be hitting fourth before long.April 2, 2021 at 11:35 am #156854gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
One game doesn’t a season make but Jack’s struggles are a bit concerning considering he wasn’t very sharp last year either. All this talk of contracts and extensions may become a moot point.April 2, 2021 at 11:47 am #156855
That first inning was a great start to the season. Some great things with good production from the offense, although the missed DP chance off the bat of Molina gave us a huge break.
Still some concerns though. Arenado and Carlson with a couple of Ks, Flaherty’s command was not good, the bullpen was a bit shaky but did the job. Again we got a break on the line out DP.
Don’t care for the batting order. DeJong just does not look like a number 4 hitter to me, as others have said. With that group I would go:
No way Shildt will hit DeJong or Molina in the 8 spot, but I would like to get the lefty bat up in order more and see what Williams can do. If DeJong hits, then you move him back up.
Man, did Carpenter look bad in the PH role or what? The guy had no clue, and looks to be done. One AB is not a final judgement of course, but after a horrible Spring and seeing him in that AB, it just looks like the horse has left the barn for him.
Watched the beginning of the Angels-White Sox last night, and Pujols and LaRussa had a big hug before the game. Wow, takes you back to 2011.April 2, 2021 at 11:48 am #156856
Meanwhile for the local nine out here, it was a great opener as the Rockies beat the defending World Champs. Plus our weather is great – mid 60s, and sun. Much better than in Cincy.April 2, 2021 at 12:11 pm #156857so_cal_cards_fanParticipantFree
I am pretty sure Goldy’s “double” left the park. In the final view the ball appears to change direction after hitting the billboard.
By the way, I’m experimenting with mlb.com new feature that allows you to make up to 10 highlight reals and share them, for free. This is excellent. I’ll post when I’ve learned it.April 2, 2021 at 12:34 pm #156859April 2, 2021 at 2:43 pm #156863
That’s cool SoCal. Since the ball bounced forward, I think double is the right call. Had it bounced over, it would have been a home run.
BTW, I like that the Cardinals wear the navy blue hats against teams that have red hats. Takes me back to my first few years of being a Cardinal fan as a kid in the early ’60s when they wore those.
Wish they would come up with a plan to wear them at home now and then. I would rather them wear the navy blue hats from time to time than those “victory blue” uni’s. Not a fan of those, although it is a throw back to the ’70s and early ’80s.
