    Cards trail 4-2 after five innings. Wainwright is done, almost 100 pitches.

    The brewers have really got a solid pitching staff. We are going to have to work better at bats if we want to win or even split this series.

    Somebodys going to have to get a hit eventually. Glad they only have 4 runs since they have 10 hits so far.

    Starting to see some bad tendencies with yepez. Trying to pull everything. Everything in the air. They are giving him the whole right side. If they are pitching you away and leaving the whole right side open, go that way.

    Yeah Willie The same problem Carp had- couldn’t hit it to left field even if it was empty. A good hitter should be able to place it enough to move somebody over. That was with bases empty though. Nados been hot or cold lately at the plate. Goldys been hot. Sometimes Edman too.

    Gorman may not be ready for prime time. Can’t lay off or catch up to high heat. Certain pitchers he may work against but not those that can throw hard and can hit the top of the zone.

    Gorman was never going to save this team offensively. He’s struggled initially at every stop above rookie ball, so this is not even remotely a surprise. It was predicted by everyone who knew even a smidge about his game.

    Lotta hoopla about Gorman coming along. Gonna take time just like everybodyelse. KO on 4 pitches. 3 on the edges of the zone. All 4 the same pitch 90mph fastballs. Better learn how to hit one.

    I thought Hader was supposed to be gone on leave. Are they sure this is him and not some clone?

    This is a moment where yepez all or nothing approach could work

    Well that’s the ballgame. At least it was competitive.

    Already see a series split or losing 3-4. Which is sad!

    Gorman, Yepez and Donovan are all rookies with limitations. Gorman especially has alarming K rates in the Minors. Yepez has power but is limited position wise and Donovan is showing some versatility. I’d bet on Yepez and Donovan sticking before Gorman. Maybe adjustments will be made.

    One observation. Palante went 3 innings. Only 44 pitches but we this a signal or did we just burn him the next 2-3 days.

    Gorman fact check:

    His current line with St. Louis is .263/.364/.386/.732 for an OPS+ of 115. Seven strikeouts in six games.

    Only his power has yet to show. Only those who came in with unrealistic expectations are concerned.

    Thank you for that, Brian. He’s actually performing far better than I thought he would when called up. If he had that line at the end of the season, I’d be thrilled and expect huge things from him in 2023.

    Gorman’s line vs. teams with a winning record (almost half his PAs): .000 .100 .000 .100

    Is this a stat that you find meaningful at this point? That’s a serious question.

    Parsing six games worth of data? He can be a superstar or a bust. Choose your favorite split.

    I like the 4-2 record of the team when he plays.

    Since Brian thought Gorman’s line was meaningful at this point (see above), I thought Gorman’s line vs. winning teams would also be meaningful. I guess not.

    Gorman played right into the Brewers’ hands. They know how to pitch power hitting rookies who like the ball up.

    Pujols can still get to the high fast ball better than anyone, past or present that I can think of.

    1982,
    I agree, Yepez was doing so well too. I think they were feeling desperate because the manufacturing wasn’t working anymore and everyone started cheating for the HR. Even Goldy was caught looking with 2 strikes. They weren’t able to steal bases and get guys into scoring position and when they did the pitching prevented them from scoring. It was a good game when you consider what is at stake.
