    Carlos has been efficient and good tonight. 82 pitches through 7. He’s hitting here, so I’m guessing he will start the 8th.

    Hopefully the Cards can get Eflin out of there. He’s been cruising since he gave up the early runs.

    Carlson and O’Neill had shots at a two out, run scoring hit early on. Would feel a lot better about this one if one of those had happened.

    Goldy up with runners at the corners. We desperately need him to do something. He has been lost at the plate lately, it seems.

    The struggling Goldschmidt has a shot to make this more comfortable.

    Goldy puts one off the top of the wall in right center to drive in Edman and Carlson!! 5-2 Cards!

    That was huge!! Love the aggressiveness – gets a pitch to hit right away and jumps on it!

    Carlos with 7-1/3 innings of excellent pitching. Way to be, Carlos! Good to continue the solid starting pitching to give the bullpen a chance to be their best.

    Well done on Gallegos to finish off the 8th quickly with the double play. Now let’s ensure Carlos gets that well earned win.

    Reyes finishes it off with a K of Gregorious and that’s your 5-2 final!!

    Amazingly, CMart’s last win as a starter before tonight was back when Mike Matheny was still manager.

    Two of the best outings by starting pitchers when Knizner was catching.

    I know they measure pitch framing, but do they measure the game called by the catcher?

    A stat called Catcher’s ERA was in vogue for a few years but analysis sort of discredited it, as I recall. Perhaps others can chime in.

    CERA. Debunked by many notable baseball scholars as not a useful tool in determining a catcher’s influence on a pitcher’s performance. Personally, I think it holds merit…..you just have to tweak a few things

    In the 4th inning, when Williams error allowed Realmuto to reach 2B to leadoff the inning, I put Carlos under the microscope, to see how he would handle the adversity. He promptly threw Realmuto to 3B with a wild attempted pickoff throw. At that time I figured he would implode, as he has a history of.

    He didn’t, he managed the inning. The next 13 batters made outs, and he did it without Yadi’s supervision. Hat-tip.

    Lot of good things last night.

    Carlos was great.

    Arenado had one of the best catches you will see on that pop up.

    Goldy with the big hit.

    Bullpen closed the door.

    As I have been saying, when our rotation stabilizes (and it appears to be) this team will take off and win the division.

    The rotation’s Game Score in the last seven games averages 69.1. That’s damn fine pitching.

    Maybe working with Knizner was a positive in that situation. I recall CM being complimentary of Knizner earlier. Not saying Yadi is no longer effective with CM, but CM is not the most stable from a maturity standpoint and he might just a bit too comfy with Yadi these days. Having a different presence from a younger guy might make CM feel like he has to stand on his own two feet a bit more in the high stress moments.

    no one should think ANY rotation can keep up what we have seen over the past week+. It is a great run, but what this team actually looks like is undoubtedly less than what we have seen from the rotation this past week…the offense still seems too wishy washy…it needs one more good bat…and the rotation probably needs a good to great arm to make a real dent in postseason hopes

    Scherzer + DPeralta does it for me

    At what cost?
