    Mikolas will reinjure himself and end up back on the shelf with Flaherty.

    What’s the word on Flaherty? Anybody heard anything?

    I wouldn’t expect to see see Flaherty until next February in Florida, Rat. Hey it’s Wednesday. No Gasthof buffet din-din revelations? Big game this Friday, Rat. I’m calling it 27-17 Cullman.

    Pugs? Yep, went to the Gasthof yesterday for my weekly Wednesday din-din. Even got my usual table by the window.

    And I want everybody to know I stayed up for ALL 16 INNINGS last night of the Dodgers and Padres. About 3:30, in the last of the 15th, just when I thought me and Whitey Herdog might finally get to bed that goomer Frank Tates Jr. hit’s a tying two run homer. Then Pollock’s two run homer in the top of the 16th won it for the Dodgers.

    Me and Whitey Herdog didnt hit the hay until 4:00 this morning.

    Well, let’s see if we can beat up on the Pirates a little bit tonight. Winning still feels good even when it’s at the expense of the bottom feeders. But I don’t think even the Pirates will allow us a taste of futile joy if we don’t get a few more than five hits (even if two of them are lovely knocks into the seats). Let’s see what 10 or 11 hits might buy for us.

    Now, I don’t want to kick a fella while he’s down or join the increasingly vociferous discussion about our closer, but I’m sorry to say he has overtaken Carlos Martinez at the top of my sphincter-clenching list. I know all the positives his supporters loyally trot out and the increasing negatives his detractors have lately been posting. I just want to say he has been causing me severe discomfort in the lower bowel area lately and I would like it to stop.

    Let’s cure all that with Thursday night slugfest in the city of the three rivers so we won’t need a closer.

    Rah Cardinals!

    By the way, I just finished a nice din-din of trout, lightly and briefly cooked in butter, with brown rice and succulent ratatouille, finished off with some fresh raspberries.

    My batting order for tonight using Shildt’s starting players would be:

    Edman
    Nootbaar
    Arenado
    Goldschmidt
    Carlson
    Sosa
    Molina
    Bader
    Mikolas

    I will again for with 4 as the over/under on Mikolas’ innings pitched. The “over” was the winner in his last outing.

    Bader should have bunted the runners over.

    Polanco might have been worth a try. Hell, look what we have. O’Neill, Carlson. Polanco, across the OF. Trade Dejong for him. Fresh start might be good for both.

    The Bucs may have had a bowl or two themselves.

    CIF I have to admit Reyes is right in there with Cmart with me on closer. Was gonna warn Rats to close his eyes last night. I take Mylanta for that. We’ve got a good jump but they’re starting to get hits now. Good to see Mikolas back and not giving up the farm in the first 2 innings. Also good to see Nooty starting. I’d get him lots of abs against rh pitching. Looking like he might be a good one.
