Cards in France, I hear that’s a good workout.
We can all breath easy now. What a dramatic 9th inning. Big K for Carlos there. HUGE! Cards win 5-4
Don’t mind me…I’m just breathing deeply into a paper bag.
Rob Rains seems to agree with Euro. I missed that play, though. All I’ve seen is he didn’t hustle down the line for a grounder…which is bad, but when has he ever really hustled for a grounder?
I don’t understand any criticism of Edman. He is a fast player that makes the team go.
The criticism isn’t even against Edman. *chuckle* As I’ve said for over a week, you don’t understand the argument after its been explained over a dozen times and you’re never going to get it because you choose not to do so.
Mike Shildt doesn’t agree…He wins.
I don’t care if he agrees. Its stupid.
If Bader can ever locate his bat…
Bader is having a resurgence in Memphis. Hoping it will translate again at the MLB level.
I give the hell up trying to understand Shildt’s lineups.
You want Edman in the lineup and DeJong out, it seems like a no-brainer that Edman would be the SS. He’s a much better infielder than Munoz. And Munoz isn’t even left handed so having him in the lineup over Thomas and Arozarena seems like a cruel joke. Hell just send them back to Memphis already and bring back Ravelo and Sosa if you’re not gonna play your two outfielders.
As far as the emergency catcher goes, I can guarantee you that if the need ever arises it will be Edman in that position.
Jesus Christ, Edman in RF over Thomas and Arozarena? Flush this poo down the toilet.
Who else is excited about seeing Helsley pitch again on July 24th?
Wieters seemed like a poor choice for a number of reasons. Thomas has swung a hot bat so why not give the hungry rookie a shot?
Shildt wanted a LH bat because Iglesias is so nasty against RH bats.
The ending still ended up being meh.
And right after I hit send Wong with an RBI double to make it 1-2 Reds with Wieters pinch hitting for Helsely.
Just a brutal game for the KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKardinals offense.
Well at least we have a new guy who can pinch-run now that Thomas is starting.
Seriously, though, did anyone expect Randy to be getting starts after what Shildt did to Thomas?
You’d have thought the FO would have explored the possibility of two different hitting philosophies not working out when they hired Albert and kept Budaska as the assistant.
I really thought the Cardinals would finally go a year without firing a coach. Looks like they needed a fall guy. Unfortunately it had to be one that was well respected.
Mark Budaska, who the #Cardinals have surprisingly fired this afternoon, was widely credited with helping some of the team’s best young hitters reach the majors, like Wong, Freese, Craig, and others. Here was the story behind the Buddha … https://t.co/TsEQlYcag9

Wow. My mouth dropped when I saw that. This makes absolutely zero sense. The only thing I could think of is that Budaska and Albert must have been clashing with hitting philosophies. Budaska is a long term employee and this really troubles me because of the success he’s had, especially in the minor leagues. Simply don’t understand this at all.
I swear if we see Edman or Munoz in the OF instead of Thomas and/or Arozarena someone should lose their job immediately.

We only play the Cubs 5 games before the All-Star Break and 2 of those games are in London. 13 games after the break.
Might as well add Holland to that mess.
You don’t know what you are talking about. I am going to quit responding to you.
I don’t know what I’m talking about but I’m not the one who thinks it makes sense to keep a really good outfielder on the bench in place of two infielders. So laughable. Other than the Cardinals winning today, this is the best news I’ve heard all day.
