Here’s what I read this morning on Wong. I don’t remember where I read it or have a link, so I’m going off memory.
– He’s having an MRI today, so status TBD
– Shildt called it a “mild strain”
– Wong said it didn’t feel too bad
I like that lineup given Wong is out. Separation between Ozuna and DeJong in the order is good right now.
Edman’s diving stop of Heyward’s grounder may have saved the game.
You are correct and I thought Smoltz was about to acknowledge that when he said “That was a great play . . . . . . . . . . . by Heyward.”
Did anyone else notice Gallegos’ immediate reaction to the fly ball to deep center that ended the game? Looked to me like he thought it was going out. That is how thin the margin of victory was.
Haha and yep. Thanfully you could tell Bader was on it when they quickly switched the camera view to CF. My son texted this to me seconds after the game.
“Gallegos did not instill much confidence with his reaction to the final out lol”
No one owes Carp anything Euro.
I get your larger point, Dave, but speaking in the small bubble that is tonight, Carp had a clutch game-winning HR in extras, therefore he is owed his due for that. The Cards owe this victory to Carp, along with a few others for some key contributions (e.g., Flaherty, Goldy, Edman, Gallegos). The small bubble that is tonight is actually very huge.
As alluded to earlier in this thread I think, it’s ironic that the cubs 9th inning comeback probably makes the loss an even tougher pill for them to swallow.
I guess Kimbrel came off the IL just in time.
When the Voit trade occurred, who could have predicted this?
Brian, I was all over it. 😉
I can’t remember the details, but something about Carp’s HR tonight reminds me of a big HR Jhonny Peralta hit in the late innings at Wrigley several years ago to pull out a big win.
Shildt and Martinez must find some grandiose way to treat Carp and Gallegos to something luxurious.
Once again we are wilting at Wrigley. Same song different verse.
Yep, that was a collapse on the mound, but more importantly a collapse in the dugout. That part matters more than anything. Maybe Carp has saved Shildt’s bacon. If not, that means the Cards will have blown it twice tonight. Let’s hope for some mental maturity in the bottom of the 10th.
Carp!! Cards lead again.
Honestly. Is the majority really surprised by this?
I wasn’t, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is Shildt was.
Martinez gave big clues right away that he could not handle this moment. Shildt snoozed right through it. You can’t be as bad as those two were in the 9th.
Shildt has gone full idiot. What is he not seeing?
Please Shildt, if you’re a Cardinal fan, take Marinez out!!
Nice comeback by Martinez to get Schwarber. Maybe he’ll settle in now.
Martinez is just melting down. Get him out, Shildt!
Martinez not even close as he walks Castellanos. Begging for trouble. Now Bryant lines a single. I’d have a real quick trigger with him.
Rich little was funny! Loved watching him as a frequent guest on Carson.
Martinez in for the save. He’s been drama free lately, hope that continues. Still believe I’d have somebody ready to come in quickly if needed.
A couple more runs in the top of the 9th would be nice.
A lot of pitches for him tonight but he still has the arm strength.
As they say, it’s been a low stress 100+. His delivery still looks relaxed in the 8th as he just got the final out.
Shildt wants 8 strong from Jack.
Yep, 7 strong from Jack. Well done.
