    I typed my regular response and got that error message again.

    YOUR REPLY CANNOT BE CREATED AT THIS TIME.

    I hope this one posts. Not sure why it would and the other one wouldn’t.

    I think the system may be censoring you in a very nice manner, Esteemed Rat. I think if you refrain from treating us to your myriad of “balls and strikes” jokes your problem will be solved. Our so called “hitters” need to not be psyched out by the Lesters and Hendricks’ of the world. They are good, but not that good. Or, maybe we have to face the brutal truth that maybe our so called “hitters” are actually “kidders” and we need to almost totally clean house.

    It’s way past time to hammer a Cubs starter.

    Every time I look at that lineup I think to myself we SHOULD be winning. Nearly all of these guys have got what it takes. What if Carp performs just a little bit like he has in past years? What if de Jong shakes this current slump? We know he can. What if Goldschmidt starts to play like the guy we traded for? What if Oz turns it up a notch or two? What if Bader chokes up just a little bit? Suppose Yadi keeps on chugging like the Yadi we all know and love? What if Wong finally gets his bat to match his glove. All the pieces are there. There is plenty of potential to power a potent team. But the gears are just not turning. I don’t see going out to find new pieces to fix the lineup (except for a pitcher or two) as the solution. None of these guys is a bad player, nor even a mediocre player. Somebody needs to grease the gears we already have and get them performing like thy are capable of doing. Who? Is there a real leader among the players?
    We all got excited and felt great when we were 10 games over 500 and the future looked bright. I’m tired of all the gloomy posts (including mine).

    All good points Cardinal in France, but that’s the beauty of baseball.,, the what if’s. And hopefully it will only be a matter of time before those what if’s turn into I knew it was possible

    This is offense we all know the Cardinals can produce. Here’s to Jack keeping the Cubs in check.

    I love how when we can’t hit the pitching looks good. Then when we give them a lead that really changes

    Geesh at first I thought Carp’s throw was going to be airmailed half way to Comiskey Park.

    Crazy first inning. A shutdown inning would have been nice but happy with the lead.

    What the heck is Carp doing that with 2 strikes on him! Can we move him down to like 7th in the order?
