    Need these next two games just to get some momentum going here. I expect flaherty to pitch well, hopefully offense can get it going. We need more a less a laugher. Every game seems like it’s just so difficult.

    If they would explode for more runs (especially early), when facing a starter with a high ERA, it sure would help.

    3 1/2 behind the Pads, 4 1/2 behind the Reds.

    A nice 10 game winning streak is in order….if only we had someone like Wong in the leadoff spot……

    On a good note……the Cubs have now lost 13 straight home games. That’s quite an example of futility. Plus their previous record for consecutive home losses was 11 games.

    Looks like the Cubbies we all know and love are back……..

    That’s a good point, Rats. The Cubs are woeful. Despite the Cardinals poor decisions, at least they have not liquidated the roster and become a joke.

    Now maybe it will work out in Chicago and they will be riding high again soon, while we wallow in mediocrity, but it would be tough to deal with an abysmal ball club. It is hard enough following a .500 team.

    I’m not sure how good a note it is, Rat? These hapless cubbies are enhancing their draft slotage with each passing week. When the Royals drill you in your own park, you know things are pretty bad. These guys may not win 5 more games for the remainder of the year. Casey Mize. Anyone know if he’s related in any fashion to Cardinal great, Johnny Mize?

    I agree Pugs. The Cubs are going to have a lot of high draft picks and a lot of money to spend in the near future. They will be back and we need to be ready.

    Another point of view. As I wrote over the weekend, AFTER the dump trades of their stars last month, the Cubs farm system is still ranked no. 24 of 30 MLB organizations. They haven’t developed a standout pitcher since… I can’t remember who. I can’t see their resurgence coming quickly. Theo jumped ship just before it hit the rocks.

    We need to get while the getting is good. If we don’t take at least 6-7 of our remaining games vs the hapless ones, I’ll be very disappointed. The only all time “team vs team” records I have even remotely followed is the Packers vs Bears and the Cardinals vs Dodgers. As a kid, the Bears always maintained a healthy advantage in victories vs Green Bay all time. The Favre and Rodgers era’s swung that over to the Packers favor. And years ago the Cards and Dodgers flipped flopped back and forth…the all time series was that close. I have no idea whatsoever how we fare all time vs the cubbies…..or any other teams for that matter.

    Abandon all hope ye who enter the last week of August with visions of a Cardinals post-season. Through me you pass into a city of woe. This is not 1964. Listen to the wisdom of Dante and weep.

    Nonetheless, we can still enjoy a little more baseball before Heaven inflicts the eternal damnation of hockey upon us.

    Rah Cardinals!

    Absolutely love the verbage and the wordage, Cardinal In France. That wouldn’t be Lord Byron would it?

    Afraid not Pugs. It’s an Italian fella named Dante Alighieri who wrote a piece called “Inferno.”

    Saw “Towering Inferno”, starring OJ Simpson, but had not heard of Alighieri’s “Inferno”. Will check it out….thanks Cardinal In France.

    On a bad note……the Cubs ended their 13 game home losing streak last night. They rallied late and beat the Rockies 6-4 on a walkoff dinger. All good things must come to an end, I guess.

    Carlson back and gets thrown in the key 3 slot.

    And DeJong back at short. Look for a couple more Ks from that spot tonight.

    Like Pugs, when I see a guy named Mize I think of former Redbird great, “Big Jawn”. Didn’t Stan criticize the trade of Mize, saying the Cardinals could have gotten to a couple of more World Series had they kept him?

    The Redbirds have an interesting history with a lot of real good trades, and a lot of real bad ones. We may have more real good and real bad deals than any other club.

    I’ll be darned. I always thought ‘Dante’ was the guy’s last name.

    wonder what kind of play time Nooty gets now. At least he didn’t get optioned out.

    Yadi and Waino the only two left standing from our ’06 squad that throttled these Tigers in the series. This simply is a game that Detroit cannot and willnot win. Hard to believe….15 years ago.

    Flaherty not on his game tonight. Now he’s being taken out may be time just to shut him down.

    Detroit back to back homers. Cardinals offense a real juggernaut tonight 1 walk and 1 hit so far. Down by 4 runs. Danger of putting the whole stadium to sleep or everybody rooting for Cabrera!
