I missed more games this year because of my own ball, play three nights a week. Add in, people were/are looking for reasons to get out of the house right now.
As for the team, no need to watch, you know they will win a few and then loss that many and end up right about .500. Front office needs to do something to make folks excited about tuning in again. Watching 3 regulars hit below or right at .200 is not that.
And technically, the Cubs were eliminated before us so we have that going for us.
Last night the hitting was more than good enough, tonight the pitching was good enough. Just one of those years neither seemed to click on the same day. Pick up a bat or two and next year could be fun.
Very sad, he was the boyhood idol. Sad sad day. RIP Mr Gibson
Pugs this team will limp into the playoffs and fall hard out of them.
Royals get the timely hit, we have Dejong swing at a pitch 2 foot above the strike zone and then Miller hit a dribbler.
Goldschmidt is hitting .302 just think what those numbers would be if he had ANYONE worth a damn batting behind him. One player at .300 or above, why the Royals are winning the State this year.

3-0 was going to be iffy coming back with this lineup, 6-0 is near impossible. Dear front office, this batting line up is pathetic.September 14, 2020 at 8:58 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #42 – Mon, Sept. 14 at Brewers (DH Game 2) #140143

Punchless offense. Feel sorry for KK.
This offense is making the dead ball era look exciting. Way to many automatic outs.
Maybe we need to ask if they could make the ball a bit bigger so Cardinal hitters can make more contact :).
I wonder if someone like Tyler O’Neill or Alex Reyes or Andrew Knizer could fetch a highly rated prospect from another organization.
Looking at this roster and I am not sure I see much outside the arms and Goldy all whom I am guessing are off the market that the Cards could dangle. O’Neill and Reyes neither one have established themselves as every day big leaguers. Fowler maybe, but no one will want to pick up that salary for a short term run.August 27, 2020 at 9:51 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #22 – Thu, Aug. 27 vs. Bucs (Game 2) #137217
I was hopeful the front office would provide at least a league average offense.
This team will finish near .500 with this lineup because of pitching, back into the playoffs and the front office will pat themselves on the and do the same old nothing this coming off season because the team made the playoffs. Wash, rinse repeat.August 27, 2020 at 5:05 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #21 – Thu, Aug. 27 vs. Bucs (Game 1) #137158
Do we need to talk anymore about this offense?
What offense? This team is good at one thing when batting and that is striking out. So offensively challenged.August 18, 2020 at 1:02 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #10 – Mon., August 17 vs. Cubs (DH G2) #135707
How do major league pitchers walk 9 guys in 7 innings? Yikes.
Agree with Brian in the long run, Tommy getting at bats in the minors was far more of a benefit than coming up and sitting until it was clear the older guys were not going to produce. Guessing there was the thought we paid the older guys on the bench a bunch of money and we will give them a chance to prove that signing them was worth it. Especially all those top notch free agents they sign every year and claim they have made major moves. Here is hoping his manager is quick to start rotating if the veterans struggle again this year.
His batting average and production in the playoffs was disappointing, however, this team was all or nothing for most of the year and the NATS rotation was good enough to get a lot of nothing from the offense.
I will eat crow if he proves me wrong, but given Carpenters hitting the last couple years, since he started worrying about launch angle, I suspect we will need a bat at some point this year. I will also say I really hope I eat crow on this, but he just hasn’t been the old Carp the last couple years.
Anyone that thinks baseball is boring and yet thinks there is anything even remotely exciting about soccer gets disqualified from the start.
Cricket is boring, baseball is not.
Why I am not opposed to the netting, another step should be to make fans get off their damn cell phones and pay attention to what is happening around them, if they are sitting close to home plate.
0 for 7 vs Hudson and now 0 for 8 after a weak rollover ground ball. IF Carpenter is back next year, they to tell him to start using the whole field and stop worrying about his launch angle.

30 strikeouts in the last 16 innings. Time to find hitting coaches that can tweak things so breaking balls are not such an adventure.
Yet another strikeout on a pitch just barely above the dirt. 13
3 pitches in the dirt and Ozuna swings at all of them. 12 strike outs in 5 innings isn’t going to get it done.
Goldy is lost at the plate tonight.
Big hit there
