Baseball is very streaky and momentum based. We had it in 2011. We beat a superior pitching staff in Philly like we owned them. Maybe it is just Washington’s turn. I’m happy getting to NLCS this year.
Puggs, I miss those days some, especially that hot IRS agent some almost 10 years ago. But I got what I truly need now, and she is a Cards fan. Although I am a tad bit irritated with her appreciation of Molina and Matt Adams. That actually is very common down here in southern Missouri (Matt Adams love). The new Mr Perkins is due Nov 21st and I can’t be happier. I do miss insight from Jerry Modene.
This thread is really disheartening. We are exactly at the apex of where we hoped to be at the start of the year. We control our destiny in the NLCS. I am usually positive in my posting and I generally support Mo and I am quite happy with the results this year. I didn’t know if we were capable of advancing this far, but we have, without sacrificing our future at the trading deadline. At this point it is a crapshoot.
Pugs in the manager seat. I just want to finally see him in that pink shirt.
I’d have done Bader for Wheeler. If anything to try to keep the guys’ arms in the bullpen from falling off. Maybe Wheeler could have been resigned with a “try before you buy”
I think you are referring to padres drafting Perdomo, not Peralta. Although Peralta thriving with the D-backs was unexpected after being released as a pitcher.
Carpenter may loop them over there but he seems to always have just enough to get the runner. His range and instincts are not great. He is extremely streaky. I thought just before his extension that we played it perfectly. But those extra years were a horrible idea I thought then and looks proven now. With the comment about his mental toughness…I hope the rest of the crew picks it up and he turns into the guy that can really pile it on that he has been in the pastJuly 13, 2019 at 7:50 pm in reply to: Trade Ideas/Acquisition Ideas/Non-Cards Rumors – 2019 #97808
I would do that Greinke deal in a heartbeat. I don’t think Reyes is going to pan out and if he does I doubt he’ll ever pitch past the 6th inning in games. I’d include 2 of Thomas, Arozonena, Garcia, Capel, or Williams.
I don’t have the numbers to back it up but my eyes told me Webb pitched well in games out of hand but tightened up in tough spots. Maybe go with a guy who pitched a lot in NYC. Or maybe front office wants to make voit trade look better.
I thought I read the “Baker Bowl” was a huge park when I was younger.
Edit: nope, dead wrong

According to announcers, Kaufman and Comerica are the parks that would have contained the mighty Edman shot
This one could end up going until the sun comes up in sweet southern Missouri. The wife is snoring away while I am taking in the action. I fear I may brought bad karma by the first 2 laser beams to start the inning. Dickerson ties it 3-3 with Martinez still eyeing home plate in his tracks as that shot was gone before he had time to turn his head.
It’s a good thing Mrs Perkins doesn’t read here. She doesn’t like hearing about the near misses of past near Mrs’s.
On the redbird side, Kirtly hit it on the nose both times with a deep double to show. Toerner 0-2 striking out looking bad and a hard liner pulled right to first baseman. Think misies walked both times. Ascano rbi double and a gem in the field at SS. 3-1 good guys in bottom 4
Hooks make Parsons throw a few extra pitches in the 4th but he is up to the challenge. 4ip, 5 hits, 0 walks, 69 pitches. Fastball now consistently at 89-90.
Parsons gives up lead off home run in 3rd and retires next 3 without incident. He is attacking the plate all night, no nibbling so far.
Parsons gives up 2 hits with one out before opening up his arsenal getting first pitch called strikes on off speed pitches before retiring both on soft contact. Radar gun more consistant at 92 on the fastball
Parsons works around a one out double. Batters were not timing his pitches very well. 2 ground outs and a strike out. Velocity 92 to 95 if you trust the gun. He was pitching agressively. Carlson with a no doubter deep over center field wall to lead off Springfield
I get to see Parsons pitch tonight in Springfield with the wife. Hoping the rain stays away.
Think I read Urena not going to make this start. Ah yes. Urena to DL, Yamamota, who was acquired in Yelich deal penciled in to make is major League debut.
I think I remember a poster forecasting success for Cox saying he “liked Cox in the 2-hole” causing several off colour jokes.
Indeed. We used to nominate posts of the week here. That was befitting.
The trivia question has me guessing Boris from Rocky and Bullwinkle
