    Listening to Thompson and Danny Mac trying to make a case to vote Cardinal players in the ASG. Do they actually think that any of our players have done enough to be voted in by fans.

    I think you could make a pretty good case for Paul Dejong as a starter. He leads NL shortstops in WAR and trails only Tatis Jr, who’s missed a lot of games, in wRC+. You could probably put Ozuna in as a backup if you look at the OF positions individually. Maybe Gant as a reliever. That’s probably it.

    I think it’s required that each team be represented and yes I agree bicycle mike, one of those 2 are the most likely but only because it’s a requirement. Otherwise I think there are more deserving but one or both can go on a tear before the ASG

    There’s a Marp homer. This team really needs him to get on a roll. He doesn’t have to be the MVP level player he was this time last year, but .270 with an OBP in the upper .300s and some power would be great.

    1-0 Cards.

    I’m hoping Carp can get his average above 240 by the ASB. That would be like a 330 avg between now and then, depending on times AB

    The DP has been key for us it seems lately.

    Good hustle by Fowler to avoid the Dp, maybe Yadi can make something happen

    The offense is on fire today as they have surpassed their hit total from yesterday with 4 tonight.

    It probably won’t happen, but I would like to see Bader lay down a bunt and try to get on that way to start the inning.

    Bader just barely misses a home run…and then strikes out. It’s a game of inches.

    OK, Marp. That’s how you beat the shift…a bunt double!

    When was the last time Carp had 2 hits in a game and how many times has that happened this year?

    Well, that blunder hurts the Marlins. 2-0 Cards as they drop the fly ball.

    He’s had 2 hits 10 times (most recently June 9 against the Cubs) and 3 hits twice, May 4 against the Cubs and May 25 against the Braves.

    2-0 heading to the 6th. MM looking good thus far. Not dominate but getting the job done.

    A game of inches on defense too as Carp moves a few inches to the right or else it’s an inning ending ground ball if he stays put

    Mikolas wiggles out of a bit of a jam in the 7th. I’d imagine that’s it for him. Hope to see some more Redbird runs to make it more comfortable for the pen.

    That was probably the last inning for MM. Hopefully Schildts decision will come with a Pinch hitter this next inning rather than a double switch in the 7th.

    Loved the bunt by Carpenter. I have been saying for two months that he needs to do that. He should at least attempt a bunt once a game. Not only will he get a hit of it now and then, but the defense will start to relax on that shift, and he should be a better hitter as it will force him to stay on the ball.

    It’s a win-win-win.

    Gallegos coming in. He’s been one of our best out of the pen lately.

    ….was out riding the bike and listening to the KMOX broadcast while riding, and Shannon was really sleep-walking though the event. Would be nice to get a little more enthusiasm from the long-time Cardinal.

    Also he kept pronouncing Mikolas’ name “MICK-o-lus”. Now I will say when I first saw Mikolas’ name in print after we signed him, I thought it was pronounced “Mick-O-Lus”, with the emphasis on the “O”.

    Good to see whatever-his-name-is come back with a strong effort after these Marlins pounded him last week.
