    Rain delay is pathetic, its hardly sprinkling. More evidence of the woosificaion of the game.

    I think Mr. deGrom received a healthy dose of film, starring Arenado, Carlson, Goldy, Tommy E., O’Neill and yes, even footage of Carp’s two 3-run taters last week, and came down with a mysterious ailment. He wimped out…..but who could blame him. Let’s take this Miguel Castro chap downtown…..again again and again. Cards ramrod the Mets in this one 11-4.

    Abreu just homered in Cincinnati. After about an hour rain delay over there the WhiteSox lead the Reds 1-0 in the 2nd.

    And do we have an estimate on the start time tonight?

    I just finished making my Sloppy Joe stuff. After my 1st cigar me and Whitey Herdog will probably partake of some.

    Sloppy joes sound devine, Rat. I bet we see our first pitch at 8:11pm. Let’s see who guesses closest.

    I would guess first pitch at 8:00 cst, 9:00 Rat time.

    And the WhiteSox now lead the Reds 3-0 in the 2nd. A two run single by Tim Anderson. No relation to Tom Anderson of Beavis & Butthead fame.

    I was just outside. No rain. My neighbor has his grill going.

    Well our old buddy millet just hit a three run second deck homerun for phillies against the brewers. He did some good things last year but I’m glad we didn’t resign him.

    Maybe they are anticipating some heavy rain being imminent. Our schools do that over here with snow by calling off school early but always look bad when we don’t get anything.

    I had the mic charged up and ready to go, some cool stats at the ready and some good vittles in my tum-tum, so what do they do? They call the blasted game off. 80% of twin bills end in splits, so why even watch the games tomorrow? It’s all but in the books….. it’s a split tomorrow.

    I think the rainout benefits the Mets more than the Cards. They were going to have a bullpen game…so rather than 9 innings, they will only have to cover 7. Then their starter coming back from injury will only have to cover a minimal amount of innings and their bullpen will still have a break. Looking at the radar, it looks relatively clear so I don’t see why they couldn’t have gotten this one in.

    Will this be a day-night DH? Or first game at 4:15 and the 2nd one to follow 30 minutes later?

    Tomorrow is my day to go to the Gasthof, the Amish restaurant, so I want to be sure and coordinate game times with the visit to the Gasthof. Unless my hot nurse practitioner keeps me at her office way too long tomorrow. She is supposed to give me a steroid shot for my ailing right shoulder.

    For the record it was a sprinkles delay not a rain delay. It is quite understandable that a little girl with pigtails would not have wanted her new church going dress to get sprinkled on. And my neighbor’s bbq went off without a hitch 10 miles from Busch.

    I guess one positive about the rainout…at least temporarily, the Cards slipped into 1st place by a half game after the Brewers loss. Hopefully Johan and KK are on their games today and the Cards can get to the Mets bullpen in game 1, wearing them out for game 2. Like Pugs said, a split is likely but the Cards could help themselves a lot with a strong 24 hours here.

    Note: Fans who purchased tickets for this rained out Tuesday game will receive a credit that the original ticket purchaser may use during the 2021 regular season. Wednesday’s tickets are good for both games.

    I hear you Bling. Let’s hope no dark clouds appear on the horizon or we could be looking at back-to-back twin bills.

    Looks like the first game will be Stroman vs Kim, with Oviedo pitching for the Cards in game 2. Not sure who the Mets will throw, but probably Jordan Yamamoto.

    LHP Bernardo Flores is the 27th man today.

    Mets are starting Stroman in Game 1 and bullpen game in Game 2.

    Shildt confirmed Kim is starting Game 1. “Traditionally we send out the more experienced guy in first game, but we have confidence in both.” (I am deleting my post above since it is not accurate.)

    This will be a 7 inning game? I really don’t like the shortened games. And is Degrom back starting?

    Reds down the WhiteSox this afternoon 1-0 in ten innings. They also lost Joey Votto for a few weeks to a fractured thumb.

    Me and Whitey Herdog are headed to the couch……

    7 innings, and DeGrom is out.

    Personally, I enjoy the snappy 7 inning games.

    Kim allows a base hit and a walk in the first but keeps the Mets off the board.

    Time for the Cards to take advantage of Stroman being back after a layoff, like the Mets did to Waino the other night.

    I guess Marcus did start the other night but left after an injury.
