    I don’t think anyone would have picked Bader as our best hitter for any month.

    Last August, he had a .925 OPS, but then was benched for two weeks.

    Yah, the Carp 2 out single did extend the inning to DeJongs HR, but Bader stole the show. What a game!

    I think whoever worked with bader during off season did a great job. If it was the hitting coach, then good for him. He just lays off so many pitches he used to not unless there is a bad umpire. I think his stance is part of it but obviously he’s picked up some pitch recognition skills. I always felt with a little work he could do well enough to hold his position but he’s exceeded it at this point. It’s a small size and more than likely he will regress some but I think he’s turned the corner. Of course the Cardinals will probably let him go cause he may get a pay raise if he keeps this up.

    Here’s the lineup I’d like to see

    Edman
    Bader
    Goldschmidt
    Arenado
    O’Neill
    Molina
    DeJong
    Carlson.

    I know Edman has struggled by I still like him at leadoff over Carlson. I think he set it up better for the big bats.

    Rotation
    Flaherty
    Scherzer
    Waino
    Micholas
    Kim

    I’m not ready to move bader up there yet, I think it’s bad juju. Next year maybe. It doesn’t hurt to have a good hitter at the bottom. What needs to happen is our big money guys getting going at same time.

    I totally forgot about the juju. If DeJong can find a spark, that would give us a nice 1-2 punch in the 7-8 hole.

    Only 87 pitches to get thru 7 IP, wow.

    I would leave Bader and Edman where they are in the lineup. Its working for them.
