    This 9th inning has disaster written all over it.

    Marte walks and the bases are now totally occupied with slithering Diamondbacks. If we lose this one! Something is going to pay the price….my wife’s prized Crystal ornament is the closest beatable object to me.

    We pulled it out but I think I ran out of Rolaids.

    Pugs, you can get your straw hat for $31.95 plus shipping on ebay. A photo of you wearing it could start something that could rival the old pink shirt thread…

    I noticed a lot of empty seats today. The BFIB can’t take a little July heat?

    Too much excitement in the ninth. Brebbia was outstanding earlier in the year. Has control problems lately.

    Today’s attendance announced at 43.439, about 1,000 short of a sellout. I guess more stayed away.

    At this point we need to see more of Gallegos and less of Brebbia. At least until Brebbia gets his ship righted.

    Ha ha!!! Thanks Brian!! I’m kind of partial to that sporty looking Dobbs 5th avenue Cards straw hat….yep I’m pulling the trigger on that puppy. And for my lesser half…..I think she’ll look like a million bucks in real money donning that red Fedora Cards hat. Honestly, thanks a bunch for that link, Brian, as I’ll probably order about 4 or 5 of those rascals.

    Yes I knew the paid attendance was high but the actual attendance not so much.

    The Cardinals went 13-12 in their comparable recent stretch against supposedly lesser opponents.

    Wainwright found extra motivation.

    Nice to get the series win. Figures that they beat Greinke. Good to see Waino pitch well, too.

    <This Tim Locastro fellow for AZ. may be baseball’s next Ron Hunt as he was just hit for the 21st time this year….7 of them were in the minors. And just like Ronny Hunt, Locastro almost seemed to enjoy the experience.>

    Can you imagine how Gibby would have made this guy change his position in the box? One in the ear was all it would take. If you looked close at Locastro, his feet were actually out of the box toward the plate – at least the tips of them were. HBPs need to be looked at by MLB. The batter must take evasive action if not swinging. If in the act of swinging or starting to swing – no HBP. But none of that seems to matter these days.

    Agree. I think a lot of folks figured watching the TV at home in air conditioning beat sitting in that brutal sun. More and more empty seats as the game went on and it was not full even at the start.

    He just became a new daddy. Fatherhood (and late night feedings and diaper changes) tend to do that. Thankfully, back in my day that was ‘women’s work’…….LOL

    The division is underperforming to this point for sure.

    Nice to beat a pitcher earning 33.3 million per year – about 1 million per game.

    Question for any baseball expert. I have played baseball in elementary, jr high, high school and college but have never seen something I saw yesterday. I think I may have missed something but can anybody tell me how Waino was awarded two bases for a throw that went into the dugout?
    With Waino on 1B, the batter hit a line drive to the SS who caught it on the fly and threw wild to 1B. The ball landed in the dugout and Waino was headed back to the base or had already arrived. My question is why was he awarded two bases on that play? Is that a new rule or did I miss something on the play?
