    Thomas’ HR to left was way up the berm. Williams’ went out to dead center. Neither felt cheap to me.

    Nothing can top what Ozuna did to his face last spring. It may be coincidence, but from that time on, the Cards seemed to lose interest in re-signing him. 😉

    c27 asked:

    I am guessing Flaherty and Hudson pitch tomorrow?

    Flaherty gets the Thursday start against the Braves at North Port. One of the few no TV games. Streaming audio only.

    (A downside of having one long game thread is that Thursday’s starter was already posted, but it is now way back on page 4 and long forgotten.)

    Roberts’ slider is his bread and butter. It is the best slider in the system according to BaseballHQ. He never shows any emotion on the mound.

    Williams again looking shaky in the OF. He made a less than full effort to try to catch a foul ball, such that the Astros broadcaster called him “alligator arms”. On the inside the parker earlier, Williams retrieved the ball after Thomas dived and missed but his throw back in was a rainbow that was nowhere close to anyone in particular.

    (Update: Upon review of the video, Williams did not get to the ball until it had almost stopped rolling at the CF wall. By then, the runner was half-way to third. But it was Wong who made the bad throw on the relay.)

    The Astros coach booted was pitching coach Brent Strom. He was arguing balls and strikes from the dugout too vehemently, apparently. Strom used to be the Cards minor league pitching coordinator. He is a good one, IMO.

    The Cards beat the Astros 7-5 after Dobzanski allowed a long homer in the 9th.

    Referencing our Monty Python banter the other day, “It’s only a scratch…”

    Brad Miller drove in Paul DeJong on a single off top Astros prospect Forrest Whitley to put the Cards back ahead, 4-3.

    Some dude named Bregman then added a solo HR off Rondon and the score is tied.

    Just want to distinguish the difference between “expectations” and “hopes”. One can still have the latter while being realistic about the former.

    BHC said:

    So I didn’t get to watch the game today but looking at the box score I have to admit I’m worried about Reyes. I know its only ST but after the past 3-4 years with him this is the not the start I or anyone had hoped for.

    I suggest you try out my approach. Keep Reyes expectations very low.

    CFICT asked:

    Did I miss something, where has Tyler Webb been? I don’t recall him getting an inning so far.

    No, he hasn’t pitched. Neither has Brebbia or Miller. Or Griffin Roberts or Ricardo Sanchez. Or Nabil Crismatt or Akeem Bostick. So goes it with 39 pitchers in camp.

    Well, this approach backfired miserably as both Elledge and Reyes were not good today.
