TBA vs. RHP Trevor Williams (3-2, 5.51) – perhaps Oviedo or as Shildt said. “It could be creative.”

The Cardinals have still not announced who will be starting tonight. They say they will make the reveal this morning…July 20, 2021 at 7:26 am #167058ZTRParticipantFree
I don’t really like ‘bullpen’ games on purpose.
They have happened often enough by accident.
Pick one from the herd and tell him, “You are giving me at least 5 innings no matter how this goes.”
That way a really bad start won’t ruin the bullpen for the next game and potentiality cost you that one too….not saying do this every time but the Cards are on a bit of a roll so….July 20, 2021 at 8:59 am #167069gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
I don’t understand the cloak and dagger “reveal” stuff. Just name the pitcher. This isn’t a tv game show.July 20, 2021 at 1:58 pm #167082gscottarParticipantPaid - AnnualJuly 20, 2021 at 2:59 pm #167084

I was going to go to the Dubois County Bombers game tonight. They host the Muhlenberg County Stallions in Ohio Valley League baseball. But I feel good about this Cubs series, I think the Cards might be just about ready to go on a roll. So I think I will stay home tonight and tune in along with Whitey Herdog. Probably catch the first few innings of the Mets/Reds game first. Mets won in 11 innings last night 15-11. The Reds have now lost four straight out of the break. Castellanos did pinch-hit last night but when he swung he took his injured right hand/wrist off the bat in a hurry.
Din-din today was a Subway Steak & Cheese, some Bush’s baked beans, a glass of ice water, and a piece of banana pudding.

No surprises, Shildts standard lineup vs a rhp.

Taking a gander at the out-of-town scoreboard early this Tuesday afternoon we find the KC Royals up on the Milwaukee Brewers by the score of 4-2 in the 7th inning at County Stadium.
I have this feeling that the Reds, who are already falling, are going to continue to fall. I also have the same feeling that the Brewers are about to stumble out of the 2nd half gate as well. And the Cubs have already lost two in a row now.
Now is the time the Redbirds make their move.

Teams ahead of us for the second wild card slot: San Diego, Phily, Cinci.
We can do it.July 20, 2021 at 6:14 pm #167107PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Let’s hope Oviedo watched “Lucky” LeBlanc and Woody these past two games and will follow suit. I think a guy like “Lucky” LeBlanc would have matched up beautifully vs Hendricks and these cubbies. Maybe things will work out next time we play these guys.
Big big night here in America’s Dairyland, as our Milwaukee Bucks look to close out Phoenix. I’m optimistic but nervous too.July 20, 2021 at 7:44 pm #167109
I think the NYM are the 2nd wild card, 3.5 games ahead of us.
Diego is the first wild card 7 games up on us.
Doable.July 20, 2021 at 7:46 pm #167110Jbrodie7ParticipantFree
I thought dodgers and padres were first and second in wild card?July 20, 2021 at 7:51 pm #167111
I guess we are giving up trying to steal bases or hit n run. Our fast guys have been getting on but nothing. They didn’t have a problem stealing on us. I’m just through with schildt. He always talks a big game but doesn’t know how to actually make it happen.July 20, 2021 at 8:14 pm #167112
Nice inning. Bader hustles out a double, Carlson doubles him home. Game tied at 1.July 20, 2021 at 8:23 pm #167113
San Diego is in the 2nd WC slot and Cards are 7 games behind them (6 in loss column).
In reality, the Wild Card for the Cards boils down to passing one of SD, SF or LA, while finishing ahead of all other non-division winners. It’s probably easier to just win the division.
Arenado just put the Cards up 2-1 with a shot to left-center.July 20, 2021 at 8:25 pm #167114
Guess that day renadooff was good for ArenadoJuly 20, 2021 at 8:33 pm #167115
Nice rbi by Bader!July 20, 2021 at 8:33 pm #167116
Oviedo helps himself out rbi again!July 20, 2021 at 8:35 pm #167117
Why did bader have to go back to second,I could have sworn he went to thirdJuly 20, 2021 at 8:36 pm #167118
Was that Shohei Oviedo?July 20, 2021 at 8:39 pm #167119
Yeah our pitcher had a base hit rbi hes showing everybody how to swing now.July 20, 2021 at 8:40 pm #167120
Yep, you are right Euro. My bad bling, I looked at it wrong.July 20, 2021 at 8:43 pm #167121
Why did bader have to go back to second,I could have sworn he went to third
He took a big turn, but held up.July 20, 2021 at 8:51 pm #167122
cubs have to deal with Murderer’s Row in the 5th, with Goldy, Arenado and O’Neill due up.
