    Monday update: Johan Oviedo is being recalled from Memphis to start with all others pushed back one day. An IL move (Hicks?) should be coming Tuesday.

    Our young hero Mr Oviedo has the unenviable task of facing not only the Mets’ lineup but the opposing starter who’s been mowing down opponents with regularity this season. Of course, no pitcher can be perfect forever and perhaps winning a showdown with the Ace of aces right now is just the thing that Johan needs to launch his career into the stratosphere.

    I’ll say that Johan is impressive, going 6 innings with 9 Ks while allowing a single run. DeGrom is his usual self, and leaves with the game tied 1-1. The rest will be up to the pens. To say that a win tonight would be a huge boost for the team at a critical juncture is putting it lightly. Tyler O’Neill cracks a walk off blast into Big Mac Land and the Cards win it 3-2.

    DeGrom is well on his way to his third Cy Young award. The guy is a machine who can still hit 100mph in the 8th inning. But he doesn’t get much run support so the Cards just need to hang tough and pull it out at the end. I like 25’s prediction of 3-2 Birds.

    I remember a seemingly daunting matchup like this a mere 22 years ago when young pup Jose Jimenez outdueled Randy Johnson twice with shutouts in 2 weeks, including a no hitter in an otherwise terrible season. You never know what these young guys can muster when they go against the best of the best. But I predict 8-0 Mets.

    Can somebody explain this to me? I just dont get it?

    Why – WHY – cant Reyes and Hicks throw the ball over the plate???????

    Reyes flirts with disaster a great deal of the time basically because he cannot throw strikes. We were very fortunate last night.

    Rats, go try to throw the ball 100 MPH and tell me how much control you have.

    Reyes is a major league baseball pitcher. He’s been doing this for years. In my mind there is no excuse for consistent wildness from him and/or Hicks. Same with Rosenthal.

    Reyes is 8/8 in save opportunities but it could easily be 6/8 or worse.

    Cubs and Dodgers play a doubleheader today at Wrigley after last night’s rainout. Not started well for Kershaw and the Doyers as the Cubs have a 4-0 lead in the 1st. Lot of ballgame left though.

    The Doppler Radar shows alot of green stuff currently in the St. Louis area. Around 3:00 St. Louis time. The radar in motion somewhat indicates most of the wet stuff might be out of the St. Louis area by game time.

    I’d just about expect a delay in this one but one never knows.

    And the Cubs now lead the Dodgers and Kershaw 6-0 in the 4th at Wrigley in Game One of a DH.

    Cubs take Game One over the Dodgers by the score of 7-1.

    The WhiteSox are in Cincinnati tonight to face the Reds. Cease and Hoffman on the hill.

    You’re a tough grader, Rat. Alexander Reyes has not surrendered an earned run in his 14 1/3 innings of labor this year.

    Let’s hope our boys are prepared to deMean, deGrade and deStroy this Metropolitan hurler tonight. Yeah he’s hot right now, but he’s hittable…..and we have just the gents to hit this fellow.

    I want to caution everyone NOT to allow our esteemed friend’s(Cranny) words to squash the din-din element out of our game threads, as they have been a tradition here for many a year now. I’ll get the ball a rolling again with tonight’s din-din of 3 poached eggs(butter drizzled over the top) over 2 pieces of buttered white toast, crisp bacon, pancakes and hot coffee with cream and sugar along with a chilled glass of cranberry juice to wash it all down with.

    Go Birds!

    I love a breakfast at Din-Din time Pugs.

    Tonight I’m being told that I’m having two hamburger patties w/diced onions, mashed potatoes w/white gravy, crunchy fried okra and homestyle biscuits.

    That’s a nice 5 game win streak the boys have going.

    Kershaw apparently only lasted one inning today. Cubs got four in the 1st so not sure why he was lifted after just one inning. The Cubs also lost Arrieta and Hoerner to injuries. Not sure what or how long.

    And my din-din today was a steak and cheese with lettuce, onions, mayo, and mustard from Subway. Along with five chocolate chip cookies from Subway also. Later tonight I am going to have some Sloppy Joe and finish off what’s left of my not-really-that-great homemade ice cream.

    And in case anybody is wondering, yes, me and Whitey Herdog will be on the couch for tonight’s titanic struggle, along with a cigar or two.

    That’s a stroke of luck for the Cards. Hopefully he’s alright to make his next start.

    Reyes’s wildness does perhaps give the hitters a little discomfort while digging in. While not ideal, it can have a silver lining.
    DeGrom clearly saw my reference to the Jiminez/Johnson matchups and saved himself some embarassment.

    With DeGrom out, I wouldn’t mind seeing Sanchez. He should be familiar with the pitching and could strike a blow against his former compadres.

    Doppler radar shows alot of green stuff in the metropolitan St. Louis area. I’d be surprised if this one starts on time. From what I saw we might be looking at about a two hour delay.

    But then again, I am not a meterologist.

    Hopefully we can get this in tonight. Oviedo I think will be fine but can we hit this guy who hasn’t started in 3 years. We struggle against guys like this sometimes. Also why is there a running commentary on the cubs game. Just having the cubs mentioned here just takes all the joy out of the day. Keep it on topic. I think there is a cubs thread, why I don’t know but there is.
