Correction just 1!June 5, 2022 at 9:44 pm #187165
Evidently the key to beating the cubs is to commit a late-inning base-running blunder so egregious that it will almost certainly lead to a loss.June 5, 2022 at 9:45 pm #187166
Pitching decision here-whos it gonna be?June 5, 2022 at 9:45 pm #187167
Donovan is just a player isn’t he? Wow, he is impressive!
Very impressive AB to get the 2-run leadJune 5, 2022 at 9:45 pm #187168

Cabrera a 4th inning.June 5, 2022 at 9:51 pm #187175
Boy Yadi sure is a player!June 5, 2022 at 9:52 pm #187176
Bottom of 11. Cabby out there for a 4th inning of labor. Possible starter anyone?? Higgins starts the inning on 2nd base for Chicago.
Hoerner rolls it neatly out to Donovan at 2nd and he’ll fling it over to Goldy for the out with Higgins traipsing on over to 3rd base. And Cabby is looking stronger and stronger as this game moves along. He just may be begging for a starting opportunity. We just may have an opening.
Hayward strikes out swinging.
Madrigal grounds it routinely out to Donovan at 2nd base and that’s your ballgame!
Your fantastic final score:

Henesis making a bid to be a starter?June 5, 2022 at 9:54 pm #187178
Its a winner! Wasn’t pretty but we got it done! Go Cardinals!June 5, 2022 at 9:54 pm #187179
Was thinking that too Euro.June 5, 2022 at 10:01 pm #187180
Henasis making a bid to be a starter?
Lol…..an extremely strong bid, Euro Dandy. Shades of Bob Gibson watching Cabby work tonight. And he honestly was getting stronger with each passing inning. I’d love to see the radar gun numbers of Henasis’ innings tonight. We’d better be seeing him getting a starting nod come this next weekend.June 5, 2022 at 10:03 pm #187181RatsbuddyParticipantFree
He has the off day tomorrow and then he will be unavailable on Tuesday. He’ll be back throwing BB’s on Wednesday evening.
Correct me if I am wrong but aren’t we just 1/2 game behind the Brewers now? They have Philadelphia this week and they have turned hot. Of course, we have to go to one of the best teams in the AL, at Tampa Bay for three games.
Cards on pace for 94-95 wins now.

Yep Pugs & Wooster, Cabby is probably making the pitch to Oli right now. “Hey Skipper, let me start so our pen doesn’t have to throw so damn many innings.”June 5, 2022 at 10:23 pm #187183
It just may be the other way around with Oli pitching Cabby to become a starter, Euro. And something tells me Oli wouldn’t have to twist Cabby’s arm…… and if so, Oli better not twist Cabby’s valuable right arm. We kid a little, but from this one performance here tonight, it’s pretty obvious that Cabby has what it takes to start. Why keep trotting the Pallantes and the Oviedo’s out there to start when you have a Cabby? Neil Pallante is a very useful piece of the puzzle, just not as a starter. Now the question looms…..who replaces Cabby in the pen? We certainly have the position player trading chips to make that a happening thing.June 5, 2022 at 10:33 pm #1871841982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
Well tuned in late, nice to see us get the series win over the bums. Donovan continues to impress. I think right now yepez and Gorman are situational guys and should be used appropriately but Donovan needs to be playing pretty much everyday. He’s earned that right now. Doesn’t have to be the same position cause he can play well just about anywhere but he needs to be in there.June 6, 2022 at 12:18 am #187185CardsFanInChiTownParticipantFree
Was at the game tonight and Donovan might be my new favorite player….June 6, 2022 at 3:09 am #187186Cardinal in FranceParticipantFree
I absolutely detest that extra inning runner on second rule, but what the hey, we won, so I guess it was OK – for last night at least. Bravo Redbirds! Way to start my Monday morning.
And I hereby officially subscribe to the Donovan fan club. Where have they been hiding this guy.June 6, 2022 at 5:48 am #187187jj-cf-stlParticipant
32 runs scored in the 5game cubs series. 4 of the 5 games we scored a minimum of 5 runs. The lineup is getting it done.June 6, 2022 at 10:05 am #18719314NyquisTParticipant
And I hereby officially subscribe to the Donovan fan club. Where have they been hiding this guy.
Donovan has been doing a lot of things right. He is playing so well they can’t send him down. O’Neill should be back before Carlson. Gorman goes down ahead of Donovan. The decision regarding Sosa will be tough. Lars will floating down the river to Memphis.
Donovan could be more than a flash in the pan (the path of so many others)…. he looks like he belongs in St. Louis.June 6, 2022 at 10:10 am #187194gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
That was a very hard fought series. We were fortunate to come out of it with the series win but we will definitely take it.
I said over a year ago that Donovan was shaping up to be the next Edman. I think I was wrong. He is shaping up to be better than Edman. That guy is a player and needs to play everyday.
