Considering there is a lefty on the mound and the DH is in play we had better see a different looking lineup tonight than Shildt’s standard lineup that scores 20 one night then 5 the rest of the week combined.May 17, 2019 at 2:44 pm #90980
I am kinda anxious to see tonight’s lineup.
I got my mowing done, got the pushmower out and done some trimming. Then I lit up a cigar and had a Mt. Dew and took Whitey Herdog outside to let her run around the yard for awhile while I sat on the porch. About to hit the shower and get ready for the game(s) tonight. Reds and Dodgers or Cubs and Nats early then over to FSMW for the Cards and Rangers. And then later tonight an episode of Barnaby Jones. A bite to eat and a couple of cigars through the evening’s festivities as well.
What a life. I am even contemplating keeping my Alfa Romeo 4C now as well. Not sure I will get a new 4-Series BMW now or wait till later in the year.

Finally some good news.May 17, 2019 at 4:58 pm #90992PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
I’ve never been so happy to see Carlos come back. This is arguably the most talented pitching staff our Birds have had during the Carlos Martinez era. Unfortunately, it is also arguably the most frustrating group. This club needs a major shot in the arm from one of it’s youngsters. Whether it be a pitcher or position player, we need that young phenom to burst upon the big stage and make one whale of a big splash.
Hey Esteemed Rat. Time to put your Alfa out to pasture with the alfalfa. Pull the trigger now on that Series-4 BMW….you won’t be sorry!May 17, 2019 at 5:06 pm #90993
If I want to get a BMW in the color I want – Mineral Gray – I am going to have to go with the 4-Series. They don’t offer Mineral Gray in the 5-Series. No big deal, really.

I’ll take a stab at the lineup:

Nope same lineup just add Bader to the 9th spot.

That lineup isn’t any good. Neither is the Reds lineup with Votto hitting leadoff or 2nd.
Sometimes I wonder how some people get to be major league managers.

We are not facing the lefty but Leclerc a rightyMay 17, 2019 at 7:41 pm #91016
Mikolas is having flashbacks apparently. Odor’s three run homer has the home team up 4-0 in the second inning.May 17, 2019 at 7:43 pm #91017BlackHillsCardParticipantFree
The Cardinals have been so generous to their sports brethren these past 2 weeks. Sucking to the point they’re making sure St. Louis turns on the Blues game instead of their game. How very generous of them.May 17, 2019 at 7:46 pm #91019
That’s the Miles I remember pitching for Texas.May 17, 2019 at 7:48 pm #91020
Mo dispatched Leone and Gregerson at least one game too soon. This would be the perfect game for them. Cards and Mikolas getting pummeled in the 2nd.May 17, 2019 at 7:50 pm #91021bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Great news! With us getting clobbered in the series opener, we can now come back and win the next two.May 17, 2019 at 7:51 pm #91022
This team is turning into an unmitigated disaster. Something has gone very wrong in a hurry. They aren’t just losing they are getting flat smoked.

There you go, bikemike! They are flipping the script. Get pounded in the opener and win the final two games. Yes, that must be it…May 17, 2019 at 7:55 pm #91025
Horrendous pitching. There is not one above average starter on this staff. We’ve got two back end #3s, a #5 and two guys who probably don’t belong on a big league staff. It might be time to play every game as a bullpen game soon.May 17, 2019 at 7:58 pm #91026

Not for nothing but I kinda figured since the starters have a hard time finishing five innings that’s what they’ve been doing most of the season.May 17, 2019 at 8:03 pm #91029
Could always give Gyorko more innings. He needs a bigger role.May 17, 2019 at 8:07 pm #91030
1st and 3rd with none out…what’s the over/under on number of runs? 0.5?May 17, 2019 at 8:08 pm #91031
So a positive for the Cardinals is they are playing the one team that might rival them for poor pitching.May 17, 2019 at 8:10 pm #91032
I feel like Dan and Brad are on a wish streak with the comeback talk. Not to say that it can’t happen…but they talk about this every time the Cards are getting blown out.
