Woodruff makes a nice defensive play on the swinging bunt to keep Hudson from reaching. 4-2 now.March 30, 2019 at 7:42 pm #85204
Brewers pitchers are eating the Cards’ lunch this series at the plate. Starting pitching has not been impressive so far.March 30, 2019 at 7:50 pm #85205
Back to back Ks to start the 5th from Carp and Goldy. This will be it for thjs guy (and Hudson too after 5, I assume) so may need to get to the bullpen.
As I write that, Dejong doubles.March 30, 2019 at 8:10 pm #85210
Mayers escapes a bases-loaded jam to end the fifth. Brewers up 4-2.March 30, 2019 at 9:06 pm #85212
well just got back to watch the game, I was recording it so didn’t miss a thing. caught up to live now. offense totally fell off tonight. I didn’t think starting oneil for bader made sense when I saw lineup and after seeing him swing the bat or not, I still feel the same. put him in for fowler if you are gonna put him in. Hudson wasn’t great though he wasn’t horrible. two runs isn’t generally gonna cut it no matter whose pitching. relief has been solid.March 30, 2019 at 9:15 pm #85213
cardinals had plenty of chances vs brewers bullpen. didn’t come through. either cards hitting isn’t that good or brewers relief isn’t as bad as everyone was thinking with those other guys injured.March 30, 2019 at 9:17 pm #85214
I know hader is good but its still kinda sad. gotta move up toi the plate. all pitches but one have been away.March 30, 2019 at 9:18 pm #85215
time to move on from that dud.March 30, 2019 at 9:19 pm #85216
Hader fans the side in the ninth on nine pitches total to seal Milwaukee’s 4-2 win. The Cards are 1-2 on the season.March 30, 2019 at 9:23 pm #85217Euro DandyParticipantFree
Hader just emasculated O’Neill, Fowler and Munoz on nine pitches. I think that’s called an immaculate inning.March 30, 2019 at 9:30 pm #85218CardsRedSox4EverParticipantFree
Only three games in, but frustration level feels like last July. Expecting much more to open this season. DeJong batting third makes no sense to me, but can’t say the others are doing much better, save Wong. Goldy good night last night, hope he’s not a flash in the pan. Something about high dollar extended contract players in the recent past just aren’t living up to expectations.March 30, 2019 at 10:14 pm #85219
Back to bikemike’s concern about using the top three bullpen arms Friday. Shildt decided to let Hudson hit with two in scoring position instead of using Jose Martinez as a PH.
Essentially, he didn’t feel comfortable relying on the bullpen for six innings. Gambled that a two run lead, in this ballpark, was surmountable. Also, consider the bullpen avails: Gant was down, Reyes and Miller likely very limited. https://t.co/VXYuXRZUhA

Unless I’m mistaken, there are 159 games left in the regular season. You guys need to wait. I don’t reach a determination on the season until my wedding anniversary…June 14. Give it some time. A guy like Goldschmidt can win games by himself and keep you close. Don’t panic…there’s plenty of time for that later.March 30, 2019 at 10:37 pm #85221
well mspaid I agree to a point. but its a fans prerogative to point out bad things they see. nobody on here that ive seen has said the season is over or we should panic. its all part of commenting during game threads. most people that do that are generally diehard fans that live and die with their teams. we are passionate.March 31, 2019 at 12:13 am #85223PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
