    This could be a favorable pitching matchup to clinch the division. Do it sooner rather than later.

    Going with a started who has a losing record is concerning, but at least their starter is worse. Not that we can hit anyone lately. Hopefully the day off helps somehow.

    So you believe the 11-13 record is somehow more indicative than his 3.35 ERA? I’d love to hear that explanation. Then again, I really wouldn’t…

    For others, Mikolas has a sharp 2.52 ERA this month, but just a 1-3 record to show for it. Is that somehow his fault?

    3.35 era should be 15+ wins. I blame the inconsistent offense…

    Correct me if I am wrong here, but……if we win ONE of these two games at Milwaukee we are NL Central champs, right? Because we would have won the season series, right? Which means we automatically become the #3 seed, right?

    What no doomsday scenario?

    Rats – I believe you are correct. We have 8 games left (Milwaukee has 9) with a 6.5 game lead. Winning one of the games gives us the season series and would maintain the 6.5 game lead with 6 games to go PLUS give us the first tiebreak with the season series win.

    Love that! Good one, Oliver.

    Hopefully Mikolas gets a little support tonight and we can clinch the division to get ready for October. I think it happens and the Cards win it 6-3.

    I sense the Cardinals are going to win both of these games. That is a good park to hit in. We will see though.

    I was gonna post a trivia over the weekend but I didn’t have the time…so I’ll do one that involves a piece of yours truly’s history, and some HR history as well.

    On Aug 22, 1998, I was in attendance at the old Three Rivers Stadium when Mark McGwire hit a homer that set the then-record for most HRs in a three year span, passing Babe Ruth’s run from 1926-28.

    1. What # was that for McGwire that year?

    2. That night, two other Cardinals hit HRs, and those two along with Big Mac were the top three Cardinals by WAR that year. Who were they?

    3. Despite the three homers, the Cardinals didn’t win the game. This one is going to be more of a guess than anything, but how many runs did the Cardinals lose by in that game?

    stlcard25…These are all genuine shots in the dark, but I’m a little confident I may get a couple of names correct in the second question…

    1. 53?

    2. Ray Lankford/Brian Jordan?

    3. 2 runs?

    This is not the official game thread trivia question for today, but last season’s NLWC game featured a SP’er match-up of Adam Wainwright/Max Scherzer. Does anyone remember who worked the most IP’ed in that post-season game?

    Excellent guesses 1tough except the last one.

    Oliver…The last one, eh? So, the Redbirds tatered-up 3 times and it still wasn’t a reasonably close final score? Hmmm…Cardinal pitching must have been hit more than Jerry Quarry in that game…Haha!

    I looked it up. I don’t even remember that much from 1998. It surprised me who the starting pitcher for the Cards was news to me he pitched for us.

    Hey TD.

    Your first guess was almost right…but not quite.

    You got the second one right.

    The third one…you’ll have to keep guessing. Haha

    stlcard…I’m surprised I got both of the guys in the 2nd question. I expected I may get one of them right. They were the first 2 names that came to mind, but then I thought of Gant and Gaetti and was going to submit four names…Haha! Kind of like fishing and laying out more tight lines than the Conservation Dept. Enforcement guys allow…

    I’m calling tonight’s game 5-3. Offense has a non-zero BA RISP, and it’s enough. Rats comes in off the ledge for good, and we all rejoice and enjoy
    some meaningless games.

    TD…the Cards had three players over 6 bWAR in the lineup that year, but never even sniffed the playoffs. The lineup was pretty good but the pitching was mediocre.

    Scherzer went 4-1/3, Waino 5-1/3, so Waino went further into the game.

    I don’t remember Lankford and Jordan being that good in 1998. They really should’ve re-signed Jordan for 1999 (rather than Eric Davis), but I suppose that opened the door for the Edmonds trade in 2000.

    Lankford hit .291/.393/.540 for a 143 OPS+. Jordan hit .316/.368/.534 for a 134 OPS+. Lankford played an above average CF, while Jordan was a superstar in RF.

    It’s a reminder of the flaws in the system that Brian Jordan never won a Gold Glove. His DRS by year from 1994 to 2001: 8 (53 games), 20, 28, 12 (47 games), 25, 17, 15, 21. He was at +153 DRS in his career. For comparison, Larry Walker won 7 Gold Gloves with a career +94 DRS, and never broke 15 DRS in a season. That’s not to say that Walker wasn’t great or deserving, but Jordan was special.

    stlcard25…Yep, I remember watching that WC game and being not only surprised, but elated to see Roberts walk out to the mound to get Max out of there after only 4.1 IP. Redbirds just couldn’t get anything going offensivley after he left. Eddie went 3 for 5 with 2 SB’s and scored the only Cardinal run, but other than him, nobody stepped up. Still can’t believe Shildt handed the baseball to Reyes with 2 outs in the 9th after the BB to Bellinger. Bang! Season over…
