    Arenado over Brooks. Toss up on their backhands. Arenado better coming in and on pop ups, especially in foul territory. Better range.

    Setting aside the other night vs Harper and Gregorius, I still have to believe that Genesis Cabrera should garner serious consideration for “Marvin Miller Man of the Year” honors.

    You know, if that Phillies right fielder hangs on to that homer off Carp’s bat yesterday, I bet Carp doesn’t crank that long one tonight. And it has nothing to do with the possibility that Carp may not have even been given the opportunity tonight.

    Cabby looking good! Sets down all 6 he’s faced.

    Ugh! Another walk to the Pirates to start the bottom of the ninth. A four run lead no less.

    Ok, the only way to lose this game is to walk people. The Pirates LFer is an even worse hitter than Carp. You throw pitches down the middle if need be against hitters like that. No more walks, Helsley.

    Up by four in the 9th and you walk the lead off guy. Man this team is tough to take sometimes!

    Good to see Cabby come back with a solid effort.

    Helsley with a nice recovery. 7-3 win, and the club ends April 2 over .500.

    There you go, Cards! Only one run off from my call. I can forgive it in a win. Haha

    His exit velocity got watered down some.

    His OPS is at .805. .241/.268/.537 line. Could stand to walk a few times more but hopefully that comes if he keeps powering the ball over the fence.

    The main thing about this game tonight is/was Erica Weston on the postgame show!

    Wowsa!

    Maybe Ericka has a friend that you could take for din-din at the Gasthof, Rat. Don’t go Dutch if you have any intentions on stealing a smooch.

    Nice win by our boys. Now if the meat of our order ever starts hitting, just think of the possibilities.

    Players that are batting 0.090 won’t blame it on injuries, but Carp grimaced in pain twice after his HR, in the dugout. If you have the MLB TV recording, it is at 2:10:00. For the HR, tune in at 2:08:00.

    He looked fine on his swing, I guess that rules out oblique.

    so cal a middle aged guy playing with youngsters will grimace in pain regularly. Goes with the territory.

    Nice seeing Buc batters not touching Genesis Cabrera’s offerings in his two innings of work. Not that Genesis should become a headhunter, but don’t think for a second that his mass beanings vs the Phillies the other night did not aid his effort. When you put the degree of salsa on your pitches that Cabby does and you couple that with the perception of crazy wildness, no hitter is going to get comfy in that batter’s box.
    And a few topical notes from around baseball last night: Both players( Harper & Gregorius ) who Cabby plunked, did not see action once again, in Phillies 2-1 win vs the Metropolitans. Gerit Cole (12 K’s) and 3 Yankee relievers, combined for an eyebrow raising 18 strikeouts, while issuing only 1 free pass, in their 10-0 bombardment of Detroit. And J.D. Martinez blasted two more homers(9) with 4 rbi(25) in Boston’s 6-1 drubbing of Texas.

    Think Mo may be thinking “Carp contract extension”??

    I expect it to be announced later today. 3 years/$40M with a vesting option for 2025.

    By the way Knizner is not playing like a backup. He is looking like a da** good player.

    Teams are having a good time stealing off him (roughly twice the rate as off Yadi), but other than that he’s looked about like we expected. Solid contact bat without much pop and below average but potentially average defense if he can clean things up. I still think he ends up as the backup but he’s a step up from the guys like Wieters, Peña and Cruz we’ve had back there for a while.

    Knizner is using the whole field, spraying the ball around. That adds a lot of value. His balls in play look like it belongs to a lefty batter.

    Pugs:

    J.D. Martinez blasted two more homers(9) with 4 rbi(25)

    Didn’t we trade him for a pen catcher and a set of steak knives?

    I don’t think JD was ever in the Cardinal organization.
