That lineup needs to be changed. Donovan and Gorman need to switch places. And even though the announcers were talking last night about how great Yepez is I will believe it when I see it.
Din-din today will be a ribeye steak in the air fryer, some jumbo crinkle cut french fries, a Mt. Dew, and a piece of Banana Cream pie from the Amish restaurant. All about the time of 1st pitch in this one. Me and Whitey Herdog will be on the couch along with a 7×50 Palma Real cigar.

And, on a good note last night, at least we didn’t lose any ground. Milwaukee lost to Toronto 9-4 at County Stadium. And yes, Front Row Amy was in attendance last night.June 25, 2022 at 12:49 pm #189134gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
I agree Rat. Donovan should bat 2nd. It is common sense to put your best OBP guys in front of the big bats. This recent trend by the analytical geeks of having a power bat hit 2nd is nonsense. Whitey Herzog would have told them where to stuff their spreadsheets.June 25, 2022 at 1:17 pm #189138
Speaking of OBP. Our three speedy defensive outfielders not looking so good. 7th,8th, and 10th on the team. They are also 7th, 8th, and 9th in average. 5th, 6th, and 9th in walks. Maybe WAR says they are tearing it up. I’m not seeing that. How many more years do they get before we go get an above average hitter to boost this offense. Maybe Carlson steps up. Gonna be a lot of nights like last night until then.June 25, 2022 at 1:50 pm #189140
Arenado is fun to watch. You can say that about a lot of middle infielders. Not something you say about third basemen very often.June 25, 2022 at 2:00 pm #189141
I’d feel a lot better with a coupla more runs. C’mon Cardinals, don’t let up now. Rah Cardinals!June 25, 2022 at 2:18 pm #189142
Just got here. Great to see 2 runs right off. Mikolas should be able to hold em down but its been going the other guys get a stray dinger with somebody on lately. Our last inning ab Goldy could off walked but swinging at pitches low outside. Just take the strikes.Let em walk you. Checking on game day. Need some more runs.
Din-din will be that steak I never cooked.Marinated it last night to keep it going.
Go Cardinals!June 25, 2022 at 2:47 pm #189146
Gorman don’t want no meatballs!June 25, 2022 at 3:11 pm #189147
Carlson with a big double. Arenado scores Donovan to second.June 25, 2022 at 3:17 pm #189148
OK boys and girls. It’s time foe a BIG INNING!June 25, 2022 at 3:23 pm #189150
Yepez a flyout, Bader a called third strike, and Noot a strikeout, Two lob. Rally killed.June 25, 2022 at 3:23 pm #189151
Oh Zut! So much for the big inning.June 25, 2022 at 3:31 pm #189154
Shoulda sent the runner on Yepez flyout. We’re not exactly an offensive juggernaut.June 25, 2022 at 3:34 pm #189155Bob ReedParticipantFree
Constitutional amendment suggestion: any time a team has men on second and third and nobody out and fails to score, the hitting coach and manager are each automatically fined $5,000.
I think I can get bi-partisan support on this one.June 25, 2022 at 3:45 pm #189156
You’re gonna break the team. They’ll have to taje out loans CIF !June 25, 2022 at 3:49 pm #189157
Another opportunity to pad the score slips through our fingers.June 25, 2022 at 3:50 pm #189158blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
We kind of need Donovan up in the order right now, but I am liking the idea of him there at 5th in th middle of the order behind the boppers. He could grow into that nicely. We need a high OBP guy up in the 2 slot though.June 25, 2022 at 3:54 pm #189159
The big boys are doing their job today but the little birds are just fluttering!June 25, 2022 at 3:59 pm #189160
Just hadda happen didn’t it? 3-3.June 25, 2022 at 4:01 pm #189161TscurloParticipantFree
WHY!!!!!! He fouled off how many pitches to that side of the field!!! You knew he was trying to pull it!!!!
WHY WHY WHY…. Throw that pitch. GRRRRRRR!!!!!!June 25, 2022 at 4:07 pm #189163
Gee- that was a real surprise. Tied from behind with 8 lob.Not pitchings fault. Score some runs.June 25, 2022 at 4:21 pm #189164Cards667ParticipantFree
Not Gio’s fault they are asking him to throw 40 pitches and go 2 innings instead of having more than 3, now 2 with Cabrera out, pitchers that can get outs. The Cubs are terrible and I’d take Wick or Martin or definitely Effross or Robertson over most of the Cardinal relievers.
