As of now, O’neill is the masher in the OF, hitting .188, with Carlson at .091, Williams and Dean .000.April 5, 2021 at 8:36 pm #157099bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Also, I wish guys would get away from the head first slide. O’Neill probably gets an SB if he goes in feet first.
How long before we see Knizner in there?April 5, 2021 at 8:37 pm #157100
Bling boy… there may be only 3 players hitting over 250… but Ponce has the most wins and lowest era amongst the starters. In other words it’s game 4/162. I’m predicting now that both those stats will change before the end of the month.April 5, 2021 at 8:39 pm #157101
Too many Ks tonight. We need to be more aggressive with that first pitch. It seems like we’re always falling behind in the count.April 5, 2021 at 8:46 pm #157102
Edman raised his average 33 points with a hit tonight… and now is batting 200. If he gets 2 hits tomorrow, that’ll be 4 players over 250. 😳April 5, 2021 at 8:50 pm #157103TexasCardParticipantFree
Always good to win, but whoa nellie that outfield hitting 0 for 11 with 5 strike outs. U-G-L-Y there ain’t no alibi it’s ugly bad.April 5, 2021 at 8:50 pm #157104stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Reyes sets em down in the 9th, giving up only a single, and the Cards win 4-1. Back to .500.April 5, 2021 at 8:53 pm #157105
The outfield is a work in progress.. they’ll get better though. Just need to find a groove. It seems like there all trying to every pitch out of the stadiumApril 5, 2021 at 9:07 pm #157109
Great pitching tonight but hitting a little weak. But to be honest outside of that first inning, their pitching was really good. Sometimes you have to admit that instead of saying our hitters were bad. I mean we say our pitching was good but they could say their hitting was bad so I’m going with the overall pitching on both sides was really good.April 5, 2021 at 9:11 pm #157111
It was also nice to get to see an actual Cardinals broadcast, nice to hear jimmy ball game again. Took it to be on a oddball channel and not hd but I’ll take it.April 5, 2021 at 9:11 pm #157112
Once Pugs knocks the rust off, I’ll check his PBP too.
Thank you……thank you very much, Bling. Good news out of America’s Dairyland. The PBP yipps that have been plaguing me over this past month, appears to have disappeared as quickly as they surfaced. I called a 5 inning virtual reality tune up game last night featuring the Pawtucket State Pirates vs the Arizona State Sun Devils and trust me when I say that the PBP was a thing of beauty. I deem myself ready, willing and more than able to advance to the show. It could be as early as tomorrow evening. I thank all of those who have sent emails of concern during these most difficult of times……it means a bunch, gang!
Only one walk issued this evening. You won’t lose many doing that. We needed that!April 5, 2021 at 9:14 pm #157114Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Ponce de Leon after going five innings in his first start of the season: "Me and Mad Dog (Mike Maddux) talked about it pretty much all spring, when I get to two strikes, I'm pretty good. So, the goal was to get to two strikes as quickly as possible."#STLFLY pic.twitter.com/Gyl5utQImf

Be careful, TexasCard and BB. 25 will start accusing you of polluting.April 5, 2021 at 10:07 pm #157116so_cal_cards_fanParticipantFree
How about tag-teaming with David. Color and PBP, in some fashion?April 5, 2021 at 11:22 pm #157119
As long as David has no aspirations of supplanting your’s truly as lead PBP dog, I’m all in with teaming up with David, So_Cal.April 6, 2021 at 4:33 am #157121blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual

Not so fast David. Sadly, Yadi dropped back to .231. So as of now we have 2 regulars hitting over .250, Goldy and NA. Yadi’s .231 does give us 3 hitting above the Mendoza line though. Perhaps if we moistened the paper bags it would help. Is that legal?April 6, 2021 at 7:50 am #157126
Need to get it going to support PG and NA.
Mo’s Fab 6 –
DeJong – .200
O’Neill – .188
Carlson – .091
Williams – .000
Thomas – didn’t make team
Bader – OutApril 6, 2021 at 10:34 am #157130
Those would make for pretty fair ERA’s, Cranny.April 6, 2021 at 11:53 am #157136
Very early in the season, obviously, but if it continues the Cards will need to make an OF move.
Left handed bat needed badly to hit 4th.April 6, 2021 at 12:08 pm #157137stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
A lefty power bat probably would profile better at 3rd to allow for the L-R-L-R effect.
Still, it’s way too early to say anything for sure. The Cards could be the ones selling at the deadline or they could be aggressive buyers. We will know more as we get through April and May.April 6, 2021 at 4:06 pm #157159
Would actually like to pick up a bat earlier than that, and bat him 2nd.
New Lefty OF Bat
I don’t like Goldy hitting 2nd because you have the 8th place hitter, pitcher, and Edman coming up before him.April 6, 2021 at 5:08 pm #157184
So you move the one guy, yadi, that has had some big hits down to 8. No way.
