6:10 p.m. RHP Adam Wainwright (3-2, 3.73) vs. LHP Jose Quintana (3-1, 3.48) ESPN // KMOXMay 4, 2019 at 8:16 pm #89904
If Wainwright can keep us in this game through six innings then I would feel safe to say that he is legitimate this year.
This would be a HUGE win for the Redbirds.

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS
DeJong-Wong might rank with elite Cardinals’ keystone combos
By Rick Hummel St. Louis Post-Dispatch
I think that a lot of fans would go with who they grew up with. Personally, I loved the Groat-Javier combo. Both were sound offensively and in the field. Ahhh… those were the days.May 5, 2019 at 11:44 am #89932
Great article. I grew up with Ozzie and Tommy Herr. I can’t imagine any keystone combo better than that but I acknowledge that DeJong and Wong have really turned out to be much better than I thought.May 5, 2019 at 11:51 am #89933
How about Marty Marion (eight-time All-Star, NL MVP) and Red (10-time All-Star, HOF)? They had a lot of success together.May 5, 2019 at 2:19 pm #89955May 5, 2019 at 2:21 pm #89956
Surprised to see Bader sitting against the LHP. gscottar, you may be right about that job share in CF.

You say you are surprised Bader is hitting against the LHP. But you have Fowler in your lineup???May 5, 2019 at 2:34 pm #89962
A very minor typo of one letter changed the entire meaning. It is now corrected to “sitting”, rather than “hitting”.
P.S. I don’t make the lineups. 😉May 5, 2019 at 2:42 pm #89964
That’s okay Brian. You can keep your job – for now. But if Pugs finds out about this that may be a whole new ballgame. But then again, Pugs is probably going to be sitting next to Amy at the Mets/Brewers game so he might miss this.

Even Wade Boggs swung and missed every now and then, Brian.
Every year there are between 5-8 key pivotal games that define a team’s strength and heart. Tonight’s game is one of these. This 2019 Cardinal squad has already passed the test in both earlier attempts in these ever telling contests. Our 2011 Cardinal team went 7-0 and the 2006 squad 7-1 in these games. Yes, it’s only early May, but in my mind this is a huge game!May 5, 2019 at 2:57 pm #89967
Amy is all your’s, Rat. You know the old adage “may the best man win”….and they don’t come any better than Rat!May 5, 2019 at 3:37 pm #89969
Big game for sure. But I would say a win today is a bigger deal for the Cubs than for us. If they win they’ll think they own us the rest of the year. Can’t let them have that.May 5, 2019 at 4:52 pm #89977
I am watching the Giants/Reds game in Cincinnati. Homeplate umpire Paul Nauert is having a really bad day with balls and strikes. And I mean really bad.

I think RF belongs to JMart right now but I am surprised Fowler is starting over Bader tonight considering how well Bader hits lefties.
I don’t remember the exact numbers but I read somewhere earlier today that Fowler has good numbers against Quintana. I guess Shildt is going with that.May 5, 2019 at 6:56 pm #89985
Carp!! You can’t do that in this situation! You just CANNOT bail Quintana out like that!May 5, 2019 at 6:57 pm #89986
You can’t teach stupid. When you hesitate head into 2nd it won’t normally work out heading to 3rd. Bad Ball!May 5, 2019 at 7:17 pm #89987
Why is Bader not Playing?May 5, 2019 at 7:37 pm #89988
Should have been…..just cost us 2 runs. Not an easy catch, but the only thing Fowler can catch these days is the gard darn flu!May 5, 2019 at 7:41 pm #89989
Zobrist in left catches his challenging play and Fowler in center cannot catch his. Two plays with the same degrees of difficulty. Turn those two plays around where Zobrist misses his and Fowler catches his and we have the lead right now instead of being on the short end of a 3-0 score.May 5, 2019 at 7:50 pm #89990
Starting pitching not good enough. Does Dewitt not see the sign?
We can’t afford this shit! They need to make a move for a starter. May 5thMay 5, 2019 at 7:51 pm #89991
Yadi got it!!! Just misses the 3 RUN throttle…..but we’ll take the 2 run double.May 5, 2019 at 7:55 pm #89992
Fowler beat that!May 5, 2019 at 7:59 pm #89993
Besides Fowler getting almost picked off at 1st, you know what really chaps my arse on that play! That clown of a 1st base ump almost jumped out of this pants with animated excitement calling Dexter out……dude is an unprofessional chump!May 5, 2019 at 8:04 pm #89994
Hicks should be plenty rested for the Phillies series.
