Batting practice for the brewersApril 11, 2021 at 1:54 pm #157752
The odds of Ponce finishing this game are about the same as hitting the Powerball jackpot….in consecutive drawings. He’s amassed 52 already with one out in the 2nd…..oh oh!!….and there goes Shaw!….a long bomb to right and it’s 7-0 Crew.April 11, 2021 at 1:55 pm #157754
I think we need some starting pitching.April 11, 2021 at 1:56 pm #157755
Bling’s wish comes true very quickly as Oviedo enters this lopsided affair. Good call, Bling!April 11, 2021 at 2:00 pm #157756
Welcome to Steve60. Were you born in 1960, Steve?April 11, 2021 at 2:02 pm #157757
Brewers 4 in the 1st and now only 3 in the 2nd….. we’re improving.April 11, 2021 at 2:06 pm #157758Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
I wish the minor leagues were playing already. We might have an early idea of what progress our young pitchers have made. Either way it would appear PDL will likely be replaced by Kim or Oviedo for his turn in the rotation.April 11, 2021 at 2:11 pm #157759

Pugs I failed to mention that Oviedo would also get our first RBI but I was thinking it, trust me on that.April 11, 2021 at 2:16 pm #157762
Bottom of 2
DeJong – Lifts a high long fly to center, but there’s not quite enough mustard on this one to carry it on out as Cain slaps the leather on it right at the edge of the track for the out.
Carlson – Walks.
Dean – Drills a hard grounder just past Vogenbach’s outstretched glove at 1st and out into right for a hit. Paulie D. has to slam on the brakes at 2nd and the Birds are in a bit of business here in the 2nd.
Thomas – He walks and the bases are brimming with Birds!
Oviedo – Oh what I wouldn’t do for a walk here. He goes to 3-2 before tapping a slow roller to Peterson at 2nd who tosses it over to 1st for the out, but Carlson will come prancing home with the first Cardinal tally.
Edman – Lines a shot but right in the vicinity of the 3rd baseman Shaw, who snatches it for the out.

After today’s game, 5% of the season will be complete. In 2011 at this point of the season we were 3-6, and in 2006 we were 5-4. I think we know what happened after 100% of the games were complete in those years. I realize different team but point it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. I understand we are having our struggles and trying to find ourselves but I have a great feeling about this team moving forward.April 11, 2021 at 2:19 pm #157764
If it were anyone else I’d say it was hogwash……but not with you, Bling. Great call once again. Do you have the final score for us today?April 11, 2021 at 2:21 pm #157765stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
I don’t know who will be getting the starts going forward, but Oviedo sure is more enjoyable to watch than Ponce or Gant and their glacial pace.April 11, 2021 at 2:21 pm #157766
Great stats David! I like your style. You’d make some happy team a nice statistician.April 11, 2021 at 2:22 pm #157767
There is always at least a game or 2 during a season where a team gives up a big lead and a game or 2 where a team comes back from a big deficit. This may be that game for both the brew crew and the Redbirds.April 11, 2021 at 2:23 pm #157768blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
I’m not a spoiler Pugs. But strap in and hold on to your hat.April 11, 2021 at 2:28 pm #157770stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Travis Shaw playing like a Gold Glover today instead of a middling 3rd baseman like usual.April 11, 2021 at 2:29 pm #157771
At least we won’t have to face Scherzer in the Nats series. Of course the way we’ve been hitting to start the season… it seems no matter who we face… they look like CY young finalist against our offense.April 11, 2021 at 2:29 pm #157772
Bottom of 3
Goldy – Hits a hard grounder, but there’s Shaw once again to gobble her up and fire a perfect strike over to Vogenbach at 1st for the out.
Arenado – Hits it with authority to left, but it won’t go any further than the warning track as Bradley hauls it in for out #2 here in the Redbird 3rd.
Yadi – Smokes a shot to left center that will go all the way to the wall….and Yadi will lumber into 2nd with a double.
DeJong – Grounds it the wrong direction….in Shaw’s vicinity at 3rd and he’ll gather it in and throw DeJong out to retire the side.

Yes I was born in 1960! Thanks good to be here.April 11, 2021 at 2:35 pm #157774
Oviedo looking very efficient as he has definitely restored order here in Dodge City.April 11, 2021 at 2:37 pm #157775
I agree Oviedo should start over DeLeon or Grant! His stuff is awesome!April 11, 2021 at 2:39 pm #157776Cardinals27ParticipantPaid - Annual
Oviedo is very impressive. And he should be able to pitch a couple more innings.April 11, 2021 at 2:40 pm #157777
Wow Dean and Thomas taking professional at bats! A first for our corner outfielders in 2021!April 11, 2021 at 2:42 pm #157778
Bottom of 4
Carlson – Lofts a short fly to center that causes Cain to take a rather peculiar path to the ball, but the Brewer outfielder does indeed find his way to the ball for the out
Dean – Bounces a ball over Anderson’s head, ticketed for center, if not for the quick reactions of Peterson from 2nd to glove it and fling it on over to Vogenbach at 1st for the out.
Thomas- Lines a single to right.
Oviedo – Whiffs.
