“Lucky” LeBlanc always gives his team a chance for victory when he takes the hill. We owe these Reds…..oh we owe them terribly for how rudely they treated us on their last visit to St. Louis. I think “Lucky” is the man to exact a decent dose of revenge in Game 1 here. I’m calling this one 11-8 Birds.July 23, 2021 at 7:58 am #167484
Win this series and climb over the Reds into 2nd.
Still a long way to go to think about the playoffs either through winning the division or snagging the 2nd WC spot.
It would take a hideous collapse by the teams in front of us.July 23, 2021 at 10:13 am #16749114NyquisTParticipant
Castellanos is out for this series…. that should help us out.July 23, 2021 at 10:24 am #16749214NyquisTParticipant

The umpires sure didnt help the Dodgers in the game late last night against San Francisco. The Dodgers were leading 3-2 when two controversial calls both went against them in the top of the 9th. Either one could have ended the game.
First, the umpire calls the runner out on a force play at 2nd to end the game. It was bang bang, couldnt really tell. They review it and change the call to safe. Second, on a 3-2 pitch Darren Ruf checks his swing and the 1stbase umpire, on the appeal, says no swing for ball four. That would have ended the game but allowed the tying run to score. Dave Roberts came out and got tossed. The replay clearly showed he swung, no doubt about it.

I am reminded of Larry the Cable Guy’s Politically Correct Night Before Christmas. ““The gender neutral gift sacks were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that a non-denominational holiday figure would soon be there.”July 23, 2021 at 1:11 pm #167499
Yeah the PC stuff has gone way beyond ‘way too far’.
1% of thr population is dictating to 99% of the population how to speak,think, feel, and go to the bathroom.
Nothing derogatory about the name Indians. This won’t stop until the 99% stop caving….July 23, 2021 at 1:15 pm #167500PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Crazy world we now live in, Bling. I was thinking the Cleveland Guardians may have been out of the old Negro League. I for one am sorry that Castellanos will miss this series. His mouth is even bigger than his bat, so this series win would have been extra sweet with him on the field.July 23, 2021 at 1:40 pm #167501
I was hoping they would revive the Spiders name from the 1890s. Somewhere I have some research into the ballpark they played in, along with a photo of a younger and skinnier me standing at the site.July 23, 2021 at 2:21 pm #167502

It wasn’t but a few games ago that De Jong and Bader were batting 7th and 8th.
At least Shildt can recognize a hot bat and rewards them up the order.July 23, 2021 at 3:12 pm #167504
Yeah, the Spiders would be a cool name.July 23, 2021 at 4:05 pm #167506
The story of how the St. Louis Browns were responsible for the Spiders demise is an interesting bit of baseball history. After the St. Louis Browns’ (The N.L. franchise that would morph into the Cardinals, not the A.L. franchise) stadium at Vandeventer and Natural Bridge burned down, owner Mr. van der Aye went broke and brothers named Robison ended up the new owner. They also owned the Spiders and shipped all the Spiders’ good players, including Cy Young, to St. Louis, bringing about the decline and demise of the Cleveland team. As an aside, when the Robison brothers passed away, a niece Helene Britton became owner of the St. Louis Cardinals and the first woman to own an MLB team.July 23, 2021 at 4:59 pm #167508RatsbuddyParticipantFree
My gut feeling is that either Goldschmidt or Arenado are going deep in this one. I just have that feeling. I hope I’m wrong and BOTH of them jack one.
Supper tonight will be some leftover Sloppy Joe and some of that Walnut Brownie mix. I just mix it up and eat the mix, I dont make the brownies. Yum yum. Along with some Welch’s Grape Juice and 2-3 cigars tonight. And as usual, me and Whitey Herdog will on the couch and tuning in to this one.

I fear that we’ll get to the point where no sports team can be named after an animal or person or group of people, so no Chicago Cubs or Bears, no Cardinals, Seahawks, Cowboys, 49’ers and so on…then there’s always the old Washington Bullets that changed to the Wizards because Bullets was to violent of a name to some, wonder how long it’ll be before they try to get a new national anthem because the one we have now is so violent to some…July 23, 2021 at 5:29 pm #167510
Rat, I felt kind of low eating various dubious leftovers last night. But I feel better about myself now. I would have at least attempted to cook the brownies. Or I have convinced myself that I would. Although the last time my wife was out of town I dined on sardines and green beans, both straight out of the cans.July 23, 2021 at 5:49 pm #167511
LeBlanc career vs. Cincy. 9 games, 3 of them starts. 2-0, 33.1 IP, 1.62 ERA. BA against .150, WHIP 0.870July 23, 2021 at 5:57 pm #167512
So, LeBlanc owns the Reds. Interesting.
Kinda like how Bob Uecker owned Sandy Koufax…July 23, 2021 at 6:02 pm #167513LoganAlpha30X7ParticipantFree
Supper for me tonight is probably shells and cheese with cut up hot dogs mixed in…
Anyway though here’s hoping for a win tonight…July 23, 2021 at 6:47 pm #167514jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual

Nice job by Bader. He’s on a hot streak. Trade deadline coming up. There is a piece that could help get a bullpen arm.July 23, 2021 at 7:23 pm #167516WoosterParticipantFree
I made beef cutlets seasoned w montreal steak rub, spanush yellow rice and mixed vegetables slow cooked and simmered in melted butter. Yum-yum.
Thats good stats for LeBlanc against Cincy. We need to keep the bats going tonight too. Cincy has higher bs’s than us in general.
On the names thing I wonder why the Cowboys and 49ers haven’t gotten offended yet about their names being degraded!July 23, 2021 at 7:32 pm #167517WoosterParticipantFree
Nice snag by ONiel!
