A nice article on Jon Jay. He certainly gives his former Cards coaches and teammates a lot of credit for his growth, as well.August 5, 2020 at 9:23 am #134525bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
Several things about that article.
1.) His stabilizing influence was one of the factors in the Cardinals’ success.
2.) He wasn’t given enough credit here for his leadership and mentoring of younger players. And leadership is critical on any successful team.
As an aside, that’s quite a stat on 10 year players – only 6% of 20,000.August 5, 2020 at 5:19 pm #134541August 5, 2020 at 5:27 pm #134542

Piscotty had a walk-off grand slam last night.August 6, 2020 at 7:41 pm #134569
Get a load of Donovan Solano. His .465 average is the 2nd highest by a Giant in the SF era thru 14 games (min. 3.1 PA/team game).
Barry Bonds hit .514 thru 14 games in 2004.
You must go back to High Pockets Kelly in 1922 (.471) to find another Giant to hit >.465 thru 14 games

At the other end of the former Cardinals minor league infielder spectrum, Ildemaro Vargas was DFAed by Arizona.August 7, 2020 at 11:55 am #134618
Seth Blair was the #stlcards supplemental 1st rounder in 2010 from Arizona State. The RHP reached AA before his release in April 2015. The 31-year old returned to the game last season, pitching in High-A for the Padres until his August release. https://t.co/F2n4mz8Wb0

The oft-forgotten fifth player in the Ozuna trade.
The Marlins will have an 8th straight game with an MLB debut tonight. LHP Daniel Castano will likely get the call to start. Castano was acquired along with Sandy Alcantara, Zac Gallen and Magneuris Sierra from STL for Marcell Ozuna.

Always liked Lynn and thought the Cards should have kept him. He is one of those big, workhorse type guys that gives you innings. When he left us he overplayed his hand and felt he would get more in free agency than he did.August 9, 2020 at 11:23 am #134768
Wacha to Mets IL.August 9, 2020 at 11:27 am #134769
Former Cardinal Sean Gilmartin pitched in one game for the Rays and was then DFAed…
So to recap, #Rays:
Activate OF Manuel Margot
Call up RH Ryan Thompson and RH John Curtiss
Place RH Oliver Drake (biceps tendinitis) on IL
DFA LH Sean Gilmartin and C Kevan Smith

The Diamondbacks have traded infielder Ildemaro Vargas to the Twins for cash considerations. He had been designated for assignment last week.

Patrick Wisdom has been designated for assignment by the Mariners.August 13, 2020 at 7:50 am #135028mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
And so it is for Patrick Wisdom. I always had high hopes for the guy. I’m happy that he was at least able to knock down $600K working for the Mariners in what was likely his last year of professional ball. That should help in get started in whatever he does next.August 14, 2020 at 8:43 pm #135208
Wisdom was given his release and should catch on somewhere as a minor league free agent at least.August 14, 2020 at 10:21 pm #135217
Lance Lynn is the first visiting pitcher to throw a complete game two hitter (or fewer) at Coors Field since Kevin Millwood on May 18, 2012.

Stephen Piscotty hit a ninth inning grand slam to help force extra innings in the A’s comeback win over the Giants last night.
It was his second ninth inning grand slam this year and made him the first Athletic and 14th player in MLB history with two ninth inning grand slams in the same season.
*I also heard a stat this morning on either MLB Network or ESPN, not sure which, that said Piscotty and Andre Dawson are the only two players in MLB history to hit two ninth inning grand slams in the first 20 games of a season.August 17, 2020 at 12:23 pm #135543
Tommy Pham has a broken hamate bone. Could be all for him in 2020.August 17, 2020 at 12:43 pm #135545bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
Probably made a maternal comment when he found out.August 17, 2020 at 12:51 pm #135546CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
Hamate’s are tough to come back from. Often takes 2 years to get your power back. Tommy might become a non tender candidate.
