    Arenado just hadn’t been swinging the bat well. Doesn’t seem to be picking the ball up well. Takes a lot of pitches in the strike zone and ends up with 2 strikes almost every time.

    Well we almost have to pinch run here.

    I guess not, hopefully it doesn’t matter.

    Ooo, thought Carlson was going to jump on that 1-0 pitch – good one to drive to right center.

    We’ve been wanting a starter to give us more than 5 innings. Waino not only does but holds the other team to 1 run in 7 innings. Unfortunately, the bats, bullpen and manager gave him no help tonight. Bad loss or at least would be but with how this team is playing a poor loss.

    Tough loss. Just shows what can happen when you cannot throw with command. Real tough to keep major leaguers from taking advantage.

    Our feast or famine offense does not help either.

    That was a game the Cards absolutely could not afford to lose, with a 99% certain loss tomorrow. Waino pitched his heart out but Shildt made some puzzling moves, to say the least. There’s a shot this team is in last place at the end of tomorrow.

    Agree 25. That was a really tough one to not close out.

    I’m just guessing but I’ll say Brian Barton, not Barden, or whatever his name was. The rule V OF/Pinch runner that was supposed to be a rocket scientist or whatever. Not even sure he was 0 but he popped in my mind immediately.

    St. Louis native Kerry Robinson wore No. 0 prior to Austin Dean. Robinson had a .267/.303/.337 slash line for his career.

    I hope Shildt gets into the pattern of using Hicks and Reyes in the 8th and 9th in close games. Ease Gallegos into high leverage situations in 7th.

    great start by Waino ruined by a clueless coach and a pitcher who had no control of right to still be in the game at that point…

    This team prob worst in division at this point

    Prior to Dean, K-Rob was the only player in team history to wear “0”. Had Adam Ottavino been kept around, I bet he would have gotten it eventually. Also, Bobby Bonds and Omar Olivares each donned double-zero. For Bobby, it was the next best thing to “BB”, which was already claimed by the bat boy! This is Omar…

    Gallegos is usually lights out but last night he was terrible. What can you say? It was obvious from the first batter he faced that he didn’t have his usual stuff. That is a tough loss.

    Oliveras was a nifty hitter, too. I know he hit a few home runs.

    Right you are Scotty and MrPerkins. The most famous sports 00 uni wearer of all time had to have been a fellow who’s stomping grounds (Wausau) isn’t all that far from mine. I give you Jim Otto of the Oakland Raiders.
