    Storm is past here. Overcast with very light sprinkle. Lot of rumbling to the east toward downtown. I see Lester’s game score is 36. Ouch.

    Lane Thomas in first 3 games with Nat’s AAA team, .385, 3 RBI, HR. They probably figure they picked our pocket.

    Checked on Gant. For the Twins, 4 appearance, 4.2 IP, 1.93 ERA, 7 K, 1 BB. Sisk in AA 5 hits and 6 walks in 4 IP.

    According to the Doppler Radar the game should resume in about an hour. That would be about 6:30 St. Louis time.

    Hopefully the delay will destroy the Royal’s momentum….

    Maybe we will see a walk off.

    That crowd behind home plate reminds me of a minor league game after a rain delay

    Scrappy game so far. Turned in to a close one.

    Cards lose 6-5.

    The only consolation is that the Brewers lost to San Francisco 5-4. Reds down the Pirates 3-2. And the WhiteSox got five runs in the first at Wrigley off of Davies.

    Some ragged play cost us. That and Lester’s 36 game score. Back below .500

    I’m thinking this is how its going to play out the rest of the way.

    Reyes let it get away. Of course getting bases loaded and no outs and not scoring did it as well. It seems we do that a lot. We just have no consistentcy day to day up and down the lineup.

    We seem destined to finish 81-81.

    Our poor D cost us at least 2 runs. O’Neill and Goldy both had wild throws.

    Without being able to watch the game, I didn’t see what happened in extras. Did I understand correctly that Goldy threw wild on a possible double play?

    I meant the 9th inning. The rain delay was long enough that I had it in my head that it was extra innings

    If we’re not gonna make the playoffs this year, I’d rather they fall apart completely so they can get a decent draft pick for a change.

    I agree. It is difficult to improve when you finish middle of the pack. It would be nice to get a top 10 pick at least once.

    Shildt, Mo, and DeWitt would probably disagree though. If we collapse Shildt would fear losing his job while Mo and DeWitt would fear losing ticket sales, which are already dwindling.

    Right now we would be getting draft pick #12.

    Nothing says we won’t end up with a top 10 pick anyway.

    Whether you want your team to tank or not, so to obtain better draft position, has always been a tough call for me. Back when my Packers used to suck, when T-Rex’s roamed our terrain, this seemed to be a yearly dilemma for me. Rooting for your favorite team to lose just has that defeatist air about it. And it’s a really unnatural act…..for most people. There is little doubt that people like Bob Gibson, Whitey Herzog, Pete Rose or say a Ty Cobb, just couldn’t embrace losing…..under any circumstances. But sometimes it’s simply the smart play.
