We might get some help this week. The Reds are in Chicago to face the Cubs for four games. These might be the last games the Cubs have all of their players before one or more are traded. Maybe they can pound on the Reds for us and win three of four.
On the other hand, Milwaukee is in Pittsburgh for three minus Adam Frazier for the Pirates. But then they have to go to Atlanta for a three game set. Atlanta, however, isnt quite the same team minus Ozuna and Acuna and their record reflects that.
So, we have two at Cleveland and then three at home with Minnesota. It’s time we started to make some hay and win some games. And keep our fingers crossed the Brewers have another little stretch where they lose a few in a row while we win a few in a row at the same time.

If the Cardinals have a run in them this season right about now would be a good time to hit the jets.July 27, 2021 at 11:03 am #167896
We got a break last night – at least I think we did – when the Cubs rallied from a 5-3 deficit to down the Reds 6-5. In Cardinal fashion the Reds issued two walks and a HBP in the last of the 9th with the score tied 5-5. Amir Garrett came on and Javy Baez was summoned out of the Cub dugout. Those two have a past history and they were jawing at each other before Baez got in the batters box. Anyway, Baez hits a long flyball to rightcenter and that’s the ballgame. Even after the winning run scored they were looking at each other and yelling.
And Houston had a 7-0 lead at Seattle last night. They lost 11-8 when the Mariners player hit a grand slam in the last of the 8th.
It’s baseball. It happens. It’s happened to us a great deal this year. It needs to stop. We need to get on a roll. The Cub announcers last night mentioned that the Cardinals felt they still had a shot at catching Milwaukee. Better get started now because things like 2011 dont happen very often.

Thoughts on the Oviedo demotion?
I see there are some off days coming up.July 27, 2021 at 1:33 pm #167903
Oviedo, Reyes, Helsley, Gant, they all should be sent down to the minors and told to learn to throw the ball over the plate. And until they do they better get used to Memphis.

Another blow for the Brewers – somewhat. Yelich has tested positive and has now been placed on the COVID IL. Not sure how long that will be but this could now be a tough week for Milwaukee.
I believe the article did say that Cain is now eligible to come off the IL.

If not for a couple entanglements this week here in America’s Dairyland, I most definitely would have went to Ohio to see our Birds in this series. Cleveland in July is better than Paris in May, Havana in August, Juneau in June and even Savannah, Georgia in September. I like our Birds to pelt these Guardians tonight by the score of 8-4, with Dylan Carlson taking a liking to his Cuyahoga County surroundings to the tune of 3 hits……one of them of the 4 base variety ilk.July 27, 2021 at 4:40 pm #167907jj-cf-stlParticipant
Well dont forget Cabrera while you are demoting the pen Rats, his BB% is higher than Helsley or Oviedo.
I’m sure our opposition would appreciate your roster decisions. You may encounter some blowback trying to demote out of options Gant.July 27, 2021 at 5:47 pm #167909

Couple hard outs to DC.. Waino looked sharp in a 1-2-3 first. It’d be nice to see O’Neill get going.July 27, 2021 at 6:26 pm #167912
I’m calling it now. Carp will go deep at some point in this game.July 27, 2021 at 6:27 pm #167913
Nice to see Yadi back.July 27, 2021 at 6:31 pm #167914
3 of out first 6 batters struck out. I hope its not one of those games.July 27, 2021 at 6:34 pm #167915
Blingboy. I’m hoping 2nd time through… will produce results. Meanwhile Waino looking sharp through the first 5 batters with 2 ksJuly 27, 2021 at 6:37 pm #167916
No baserunners through 2 for either side.July 27, 2021 at 6:38 pm #167917
Let’s see if Bader can get a hold of oneJuly 27, 2021 at 6:40 pm #167918
Nice job Bader. He’s been coming up big especially in the early innings latelyJuly 27, 2021 at 6:44 pm #167919
All to familiar, Carp strikes out on one to close to take my then argued with the HP umpire.July 27, 2021 at 6:47 pm #167920
Waino has a lead to work with. Liked to see a quick 1-2-3 inning under 15 pitches.July 27, 2021 at 6:49 pm #167921
Good pitch… tip your cap to the batter.July 27, 2021 at 6:52 pm #167922
Nice Play by Edman to get the one. .July 27, 2021 at 6:56 pm #167923WoosterParticipantFree
I have no problem seeing Oviedo going down to sharpen up. He was brought in early out of desperation when everybody went down. He could be much better next year. Been seeing some scattered stuff about us picking up some new pitchers and we may see some new faces soon. Somebody prohected Flaherty and/or Mikolas may? be back in August? Don’t really know myself but I expect to see us in better shape next year.
