    No score in the top of the 2nd.

    At least they are playing.

    3-0 KC now and they have runners at 2nd and 3rd with one out. Wacha not fooling anybody except Maddux and Shildt.

    Redbirds might be below .500 by the end of this day.

    In 2 1/3 innings the 16-31 royals have 6 hits. Theres a good chance the cardinals won’t get to that today. Now down 4-0 to a team 15 games below .500.

    I wish Maddux would lose the shoulder grope on mound visits.

    7-0 my lord this ball club is absolutely worthless. But the royals have done something the cardinals can’t do…win back to back games in May.
    Cards will be 10 games out by June 1.

    We literally have one of the worst starting rotations in MLB. You are telling me that Ponce or some of the guys at Memphis don’t deserve a shot? That is absolutely baffling to me!! I can’t even begin to comprehend how that makes sense.

    Coming into today we ranked 12th in the NL in starter’s ERA. After today’s first game we will move down even further.

    Patience, my friend. The plan is more important than results, and you don’t want to knock a dent in someone’s psyche. So Carp at leadoff, Goldy at 2, and a rotation including Wacha, Hudson, and Waino it is. If it’s broke, don’t fix it! Or is that supposed to be if it ain’t broke? See how much sense that makes?

    One hit against a 16-31 team.

    But hey, no need to make any changes. We wouldn’t want people to accuse us of panicking.

    And here we go again. Meaningless hits when the score is out of hand. This is a team of cowards.

    Ricky Horton just suggested the pitchers could go out to dinner together and talk about it. That’s modern day tough love.

    I highly expect Mike Maddox to be out of a job sooner rather than later. Its amazing every single pitcher on the roster is under-performing.

    Anybody else notice that Shildt essentially has two different bullpens? He uses one set of relievers when they’re winning and another set when they’re losing.

    I don’t have a problem with that because you don’t want to waste your good relievers when you are already way behind (Matheny did that all of the time). The problem is that our good relievers can never get into the game because the starters are regularly getting shelled and his misfit lineup isn’t firing on many cylinders.

    gscottar, its not just the rotation, though. The hitting has been equally terrible. Its a whole team effort in sucking. They’ve scored 3 runs or less in 9 of the 14 losses this month.

    My point about the bullpen is that you guy like Hicks who probably needs regular outings but gets sideline when the teams losing and only gets into 3 games out of 18 and then you over extend him in the games he does appear in.

    I come home from watching my little grandaughter in a school talent show so log in to see the score and damn near throw up at the performance.
    There really are no words to describe how bad this team is. Wacha is just awful and I doubt you could get a used rosen bag for him in a trade.
    Great and we get to play them again tonight.

    I would DFA Wacha so fast it would make people’s head spin. He has zero trade value and certainly isn’t worthy of a QO. All he is doing is taking up a roster spot and ensuring that we get rocked every fifth day (along with most of the other days).

    bummer of a game…maybe with the double header they may have a team meeting in between…maybe get angry and do something different

    You have to change probably more than one thing…leave the bullpen alone…it’s fine enough

    rotation needs a change…i think i’d call up Ponce for Wacha…and start converting Wacha to the pen, because he is of no use right now…Waino is on a short leash too…Woodford, Gomber when healthy…

    change it…if it fails then go back…but do something

    same for the lineup…change it…even if you think it is feeding the fans to abide…do it to prove the fans wrong if you feel so strongly…

    make a trade or something drastic…remind these guys they are not safe from demotion or bench or whatever…all of them…Goldy included…

    WIeters hit today, keep him in for DH tonight….start Lane Thomas…put the B squad in and adjust the lineup

    Fowler, JMart (RF), DeJong, OZuna, Goldy, Yadi, Wieters(DH), Gyorko (3b), Munoz

    do…something…different

    he said he shoudlnt overreact or underreact….i agreed at the time….but i dont know what underreacting is if it isnt what we have seen for the last 2 weeks
