Just put on Netflix. Gant doesn’t look like a Cardinal and this team is too hard to watch.April 12, 2021 at 7:27 pm #157912Steve60ParticipantFree
I have a prediction! I bet by August 1
No longer on rosterApril 12, 2021 at 7:29 pm #157913
45 pitches after 3 IP, about rightApril 12, 2021 at 7:41 pm #157914
I’ve spent half the night fighting with the MLB app on my TV. It finally let me watch but was a half inning behind, which I didn’t realize until I saw jj’s post. So I backed out to get lined up again and now I’m getting errors again. Argh.April 12, 2021 at 7:48 pm #157915
Gamecast says Carp with a base hit to the catcher. A bunt I assume. Waving the white flag I guess. But it got us a run. Hooray.April 12, 2021 at 8:01 pm #157916
Cards got lucky there. I’m not sure that was the right call, bailed out on a bad throw by Gant.April 12, 2021 at 8:11 pm #157917
We are back to 4 below .200. Williams is 5 points away from giving us 3 below .100. 4 counting Gant, which we are not. Maybe we are going for a record or something.April 12, 2021 at 8:11 pm #157918
Gant 75 pitches after top of fifth. Hope he comes back out to face Soto, Bell, SchwarberApril 12, 2021 at 8:17 pm #157919
Looks like Gant will go out there again. He did lay down a nice bunt. Gonna be up to Edman to get the run(s) in again.April 12, 2021 at 8:23 pm #157920
Edman fails. Off with his head.April 12, 2021 at 8:31 pm #157921
Gant totally gets squeezed on the 3-2 pitch. The should have been K turns to a walk and the Nats are in prime position for the go ahead run.April 12, 2021 at 8:34 pm #157922
3,4,5 batters third time through and Gant lost the challenge.April 12, 2021 at 8:34 pm #157923
In retrospect, Shildt blew it by not pinch hitting for Gant and wasting a shot at a run, then Gant gives up at least 1 and probably 2+ runs in the 6th. The Cards have to be the team with the most times where they have a pitcher hit and he doesn’t make it through the next inning over the last bunch of years.April 12, 2021 at 8:37 pm #157924
With 2 on I wondered if he’d pinch hit NigowskiApril 12, 2021 at 8:44 pm #157925
Mo’s computer doesn’t like Nogowski any more than it liked RA. Something about hitting .300 at Memphis I guess.April 12, 2021 at 8:46 pm #157926
Goldschmidt down to .238, he must have grabbed one of the pool noodles out of the bat rack by mistake.April 12, 2021 at 8:47 pm #157927
Well jj-cf-stl, I’d you look at recent trends he’s getting a lot of at bats lately. Now that he got that bunt hit, he’s probably in the lineup for good..April 12, 2021 at 8:50 pm #157928
The 38 year old guy taters one. Yadi the man.April 12, 2021 at 8:50 pm #157929colhuskerParticipantFree
Do we have an outfielder that can hit his weight? What a depressing group that is and the fact that they are on the big league roster doesn’t say much for what’s in the organization.
And in Starting pitching that is good for 5 innings and well can you say .500 team?April 12, 2021 at 8:50 pm #157930
In fairness stlcard, they are trying to get gant to go longer in games. You can’t keep wearing out your bullpen. But gant just seems like one of those guys that is always going to accumulate a lot of pitches in a short time, likes to nibble. Yadi makes it a one run gameApril 12, 2021 at 8:51 pm #157931
Carlson struggling a little tonight.April 12, 2021 at 8:51 pm #157932bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
When I saw the lineup I thought, “You know your offense is bad when a lifetime 98 OPS+ guy is your cleanup hitter”. But Yadi is off to a good start, and just homered.
I am ready to give Sosa a shot at short. Did I hear Danny Mac say DeJong has gone 23 ABs since his last hit?April 12, 2021 at 8:54 pm #157933bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Carlson has struggled a little since he was called up. Not exactly a Juan Soto as a young player, but you gotta keep running him out there as he is the big prospect.
Nats get the run back right away.April 12, 2021 at 8:54 pm #157934
Right now we really only have edman and yadi as guys consistently hitting. I know arenado has that streak but it’s been mainly one hit a game, tonight he and goldy are struggling, still in the game though gallegos just gave that run back on a bad pitch.April 12, 2021 at 8:56 pm #157935
Oh bicyclemike, I’m not saying sit him, nobody else out there is doing any better. Just pointing out, he has had some good games though.
