What was Flaherty thinking?? Have never seen that where a pitcher tries to get the guy at second with no one on first. You look the runner back and take the out at first every time on that. Crazy mistake.June 26, 2022 at 1:56 pm #189236Cardinal in FranceParticipantFree
Just finished off a good ol’ roast beef and Yorkshire pudding with baked potatoes and carrots for din-din, finishing off with a nice slice of butterscotch brownie.
Jack ain’t helping his own cause.June 26, 2022 at 1:58 pm #189237
Oh oh. Bases crammed with cubbies here in the 2nd with only 1 out. And equally disturbing is that Flaherty already had thrown 41 pitches in 1 1/3 innings of labor. Get it going, Jack!
Masterful din-din selection, Cardinal In France……you really know how to eat.June 26, 2022 at 1:59 pm #189238jj-cf-stlParticipant
Jacks circus on full display. Needs to finish his rehab in the minors. Can not locate.June 26, 2022 at 2:02 pm #189239kscardfanParticipantFree
Flaherty got himself in trouble. But then got himself out with some good pitches. Good inning for Jack. Needed to see him compete when he was in trouble. And he did.June 26, 2022 at 2:02 pm #189240
Flaherty escaped unscathed in the 2nd……other than a gob of additional pitches, that will not bode well for his longevity in this game.June 26, 2022 at 2:03 pm #189241Cardinal in FranceParticipantFree
And already 50 pitches after just two innings.
Jack needs to step things up post haste.June 26, 2022 at 2:04 pm #189242
He gets out of it, but throws extra pitches to where he is near 50 after two innings. Watching Flaherty pitch is down right painful. As JJ said, he has no command. It should get better as he throws more, but really should be doing this in the minors and Woodford and maybe Libby are taking rotation turns.June 26, 2022 at 2:04 pm #189243TscurloParticipantFree
“It may not be as far fetched as one might think, Tscurlo”
Oh I agree completely that it may not be far fetched. I think it is a good move to switch
Donovan and Gorman in the lineup.
Glad to see Flaherty come back and get those two outs…. after the defensive mistakes that happened.
Hope he settles in… and our bats start hitting.June 26, 2022 at 2:10 pm #189244
Herrera with his first big league hit after a rough early go. Our club goes first-to-third as good as any team in the league.June 26, 2022 at 2:10 pm #189245blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Announcers saying Flaherty is likely done for some unknown reason.June 26, 2022 at 2:11 pm #189246J MackParticipantFree
It’s amazing the Cards gave BLM Jack 5 Million. They must be loaded $$$. I heard they pay batboys half a million..June 26, 2022 at 2:14 pm #189247
I tell ya, Brendan Donovan takes as good of at bats as about anyone on our club. And now Edman gets picked off. We are making a lot of mistakes early on in this one. Two errors and now losing a runner to a pick off.June 26, 2022 at 2:15 pm #189248
“Right shoulder stiffness” has taken Flaherty out of this game. Wittgren on in relief.
Donovan sure is, BicycleMike. He’s so frequently taken pitching counts full. Pez isn’t bad at making pitchers work either.June 26, 2022 at 2:15 pm #189249
Bullpen already? Despite the rough going I figured they would keep Jack out there another inning at least.June 26, 2022 at 2:20 pm #189250J MackParticipantFree
Jack has shoulder stiffness. I bet mngmt. wishes they had that 5 Mil. back.June 26, 2022 at 2:21 pm #189251
It takes Witty only 10 pitches to dispatch Chicago in the 3rd inning. Still 2-0 Good Guys.
Hey Big Mack. Yeah, Birds not getting much bang for their buck with Jack this……. Donovan just whacks a solo blow to right! 3-0 BirdsJune 26, 2022 at 2:21 pm #189252Bob ReedParticipantFree
Man, the cubs bring out the very worst in this team.
Been like this since the start of last year. When not playing each other over the past season and a half, the Cards are 24 games over .500 and the cubs are 36 games under .500. Head-to-head it’s almost a dead heat: Cards 14 wins, cubs 12. Every game is like a root canal; best you can say is you’re relieved when it’s over.June 26, 2022 at 2:21 pm #189253blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
It seems clear Jack is not up to it physically or mentally.June 26, 2022 at 2:21 pm #189254jj-cf-stlParticipant
Coming into today, Wittgren has faced 40 June (2022) batters, allowing a 60 ops+.
.243 / .275 / .297 / .572

Goldy home run #18 makes it 4-0……beauty shot! Could Arenado make it 3 straight?…..and just as I say that he goes around a bit too hastily and whacks it 400 feet, but foul.June 26, 2022 at 2:25 pm #189257TscurloParticipantFree
Would love to see three… Come on Nolan. 🙂June 26, 2022 at 2:26 pm #189258
Really cool to see Albert yucking it up with the kid (Donovan).June 26, 2022 at 2:28 pm #189259
Home run derby!June 26, 2022 at 2:30 pm #189260
Pez now joins the 4th inning Home Run Club with a majestic tater to left …5-0 Cards. And that bomb right there puts the Cards over the magical 1000 feet club for the inning.
