Seiya Suzuki of the Cubs is the only MLB player with 8+ RBI and 4+ walks over his first 4 career games since RBI became an official stat in 1920.
He’s the anti-Baez, not a hotdog and very disciplined. In 73 pitches he’s only swung and missed three times. That’s about one AB for Baez.October 3, 2021 at 7:08 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 162 thread – Sunday, October 3 vs. Cubs #174249
“I like for our Birds to walk away from this 2021 regular season with an 8-4 thumping of Chicago’s near toothless cubbies.”
The ‘near toothless’ Cubs took 2 of 3, and darn near swept. Good luck against the Dodgers.
Would have to be Pujols with 37 HRs in 676 PA.
Wisdom has 27 HRs in 353 PA so far.
The amazing thing about Wisdom is he set the Cub rookie HR record in 321 PAs, breaking Kris Bryant’s previous record of 26 which took him 559 PAs. BTW, Bryant’s K rate that year was 36%, and he went on to win the MVP award the next year.
If you take out McGuire who like Sosa was on the juice when he hit all those HRs, only Babe Ruth has a better HR rate.
“For perspective. Goldschmidt has 26.”
And Wisdom making $570,000.
Patrick Wisdom hit a 3-run HR today, his 27th, setting a Cub rookie record.
Patrick Wisdom hit HR #26 today (447′), tying a Cub rookie record. 30 is in sight.September 5, 2021 at 7:37 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 132 thread – Sunday, September 5 at Brewers #171736
What a dumpster fire the Cardinals are, they only have six more wins than the AAA, under construction Cubs.
Two pitchers Cardinals acquired and Lester is the younger one.July 25, 2021 at 10:34 am in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 99 thread – Saturday, July 24 at Reds #167757

“Far as you paul7, yes we are 5-7 versus the cubs but matters not at this time since we just beat those losers 3 out of 4 which makes me giddy. What makes me even more giddy is we have won far more championships and pennants than those losers.”
If “losers” are 7-5 against you, including a sweep, what does that make the Cardinals? The Cubs and Cardinals are two evenly matched, mediocre .500 teams. Yes, you have a great history, but it doesn’t confer some imagined superiority on you over teams with a better record, like the Reds. Maybe you’ll win the World Series in the next few years, who knows, it’s always nice to see teams win it all who haven’t done so in a while. 🙂
Although you have won an amazing number of World Series, your NL Pennant lead over us is only 19-17, and the Cubs have won 1,251 regular season games vs. 1,191 losses to you, since you brought up the ‘long view’.
Anyway, I’m here to observe, not troll. I do hope if your team does have a rough stretch in coming seasons you’ll stay away from the games, something Cub fans do not do unfortunately.July 24, 2021 at 9:59 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 99 thread – Saturday, July 24 at Reds #167732
“We beat the losers from Chicago 3 out of 4 so I’m still giddy”
Congratulations, that makes the Cardinals 5-7 against the Cubs this year.
HR #10 for Patrick Wisdom tonight.
That’s the scary thing for your team, what if Goldy is getting good pitches in order not to walk him but still batting poorly?
Another HR for Patrick Wisdom, #9, he maintains his HR lead over the $130M man Goldy. Always risky giving a big contract to a 30ish star who was really good a few years ago. The Cardinals didn’t take that bait when it came to Albert Pujols.June 12, 2021 at 9:47 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 64 thread – Saturday, June 12 at Cubs #163807
Tied with the Reds.
What percentage of fans do you think are serious ones who think this way vs. the rest who enjoy the Disney baseball theme park experience?June 11, 2021 at 6:29 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 63 thread – Friday, June 11 at Cubs #163703
Don’t forget it was a garbage Cub starting pitcher today also.June 11, 2021 at 4:26 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 63 thread – Friday, June 11 at Cubs #163698
Cubs now 22-10 at home. First comeback from a 5-1 Cardinal lead in Wrigley Field since 2003.June 11, 2021 at 3:42 pm in reply to: 2021 Cardinals MLB Game 63 thread – Friday, June 11 at Cubs #163686
That was the most pitches before a HR for a Cub hitter since they started tracking that stat.
Every team has their hits and misses, it all averages out pretty much.
Unreal. In fairness to the Cardinals, if anyone claims they know the future production of a given player they probably lie about other things too.
CC Tabathia was a fatso too.
Maybe the Cards can sign Lance Lynn when he’s a free agent next year. Seems to be doing pretty well, 7-1, 1.23 ERA, good enough to crack the Cardinal rotation, lol.
Wisdom now has more HRs than Goldschmidt, I see, he of the $130M contract.
So must MLB if he was Player of the Week.
Not uncommon for HR hitters to strike out a lot.
