You got your 2 out hit Dave. A three run dong by AmbiDexter.
Anybody got a weather update?
Any rain or storms in the St. Louis area?
Any chance of a delay or ppd?
Looks like a lot of rain and storms just west of St. Louis. I’d say they will be lucky to get this one in without at least a delay.
That is one pitiful lineup. I mean the way its constructed. I used to think Shildt was on top of things but now I think he’s an analytical nut.
If he would just listen to me and Herzog he would be better at making out lineups.
Another bad outing, huh?
At this point the writing on the wall is starting to show itself. This will be the 2nd starter in less than 20 years that has failed miserably in spite of having Hall of Fame stuff. The other was Rick Ankiel.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who will continue to hold out hope that Reyes turns it around
As I predicted, the Cubs lost 5 of 7 on their trip out west to Colorado and Los Angeles. Now we have to get on the ball here and have a good 2-3 weeks before the ASB. The schedule is somewhat favorable.
Here’s to hoping there are no rainouts this week.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who really needs it to quit raining in SW Indiana
I agree with Dave. Something has to be done with Carpenter. He is utterly useless anymore. Sounds like its time for Munoz to play about everyday.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~who is not going to the Dubois County Bombers game tonight because its been rained out. The soon-to-be-Missus will have to wait some more.
So, how did Mr. Reyes do in his last outing?
Cards dealt a blow as the Cubs come from behind in the 9th to down the Doyers 2-1 on Saturday night in Los Angeles. Rizzo a two run homer off of Jansen in the 9th to win it for the Cubs.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~who is up late because of the storm
Cubs trail the Doyers 1-0 in the last of the 6th at Doyer Stadium. Verdugo’s dong the only big hit in this one. Still three innings to go though. But Walker Buehler has only allowed one hit through six innings so far.
Wacha, geez, something needs to be done about him. He’s not worth a sack of potatoes anymore. Everybody sits on his fastball or change. That’s what happens when you are a 2 pitch pitcher.
Not letting me post my response again. Maybe this will post?
Cubs have now lost 4 of 5 on their western trip. Rockies beat them 2 of 3 and now the Doyers have beat them the first two games. Plus the Brewers lost to the Giants last night 5-3 with a big blow by Yaz the main reason why.
Oh, and venerable C.B. Bucknor was behind Homeplate for the Cubs/Dodgers game last night. And once again he simply wasn’t very good.

Cards win this one 5-4 in 10 innings. Bloop single by Munoz, a steal of 2nd, groundout by Carpenter, and a single by DeJong gave the Cards the lead. RosenHicks got three groundballs in the last of the 10th to secure the win.
After his first pitch was a ball I was yelling at the TV…..”GET HIM OUTTA THERE RIGHT NOW!!!”
THERE’s THE OFFENSE!
Schwarber hits the first pitch of the game from Kershaw over the CF wall. Then the Cubs plate another run. Its 2-0 after one in LA.
The Cards remind me of the old Clara Peller commercial on TV. She was the elderly lady that always said “WHERE’S THE BEEF?
So, Cardinals….WHERE’S THE OFFENSE?????
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~who did not attend the Bombers game tonight Pugs. The future Missus will have to be found at a later date
I’ve decided to stay home, light up a Palma Real, and watch the Cards/Mets and then the Cubs/Dodgers. Not going to the Dubois County Bombers game tonight. Its actually too cool. Highs only upper 60s here in SW Indiana today and its windy. I figure by game time or by the 4th or 5th inning it might be even cooler. Who knows, it might even snow. I’ll catch one of their games in the next week or two. Hopefully in my new 2019 BMW 540i.
I’m calling this one 6-1 Mets tonight with Alonso’s dong the big highlight for the Mets.
Going to be tough to win 3 of 4 in this series having to face both DeGrom and Syndergaard. As Danny Mac mentioned last night thought his might just be what finally gets Paul DeJong back on track as he usually hits the Mets really well.
I’ll be tuned in tonight unless I go to the Dubois County Bombers Ohio Valley League game. I’ll be checking the score if I do go. And the Cubs are at the Dodgers tonight so I might catch that one late when I get home with my Double Whopper from Burger King.
Bad news from Colorado. Cubs look like they are going to win the finale after losing the first two. They are up 8-0 in the 6th. But now they have to go to L.A. to face the Dodgers for four games. They could lose three of those.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who is honked off because his dealership said it will be another 7-10 days before his new 2019 BMW 540i arrives now.
Not as a permanent thing, but for a few games, I’d like to see Schildt put DeJong at lead off.
Uhhhhh……..Dave, after reading this comment may I ask what insane asylum you escaped from?
DeJong cant hardly hit the ball, why would you want him at leadoff????????
Everybody is pitching DeJong up in the zone and he keeps hitting little pop flies. The book is out there on him so he needs to adjust.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~who correctly predicted the double-digit hit parade tonight. And who is also still waiting for his new 2019 BMW 540i to arrive.
What are the odds of only getting four hits in this one like we did last night?
I am calling this one 7-2 Redbirds with the bats coming alive for double-digit hits.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who watched Joe Kelly pitch for the Dodgers last night in Anaheim and was amazed at how bad he is nowadays
Cards get a break and pick up a game on the Cubs. They lose 6-5 at Colorado. Schwarber is called out on strikes on a 3-2 curveball that fooled him to end it.
That’s a terrible lineup. I am starting to wonder about Shildt. I can see us only scoring a couple of runs tonight with this lineup construction.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who wonders if him and Herzog are the only two that know how to construct a lineup
LaRussa used to say two things:
1) These things have a way of working themselves out.
2) We are just one winning streak away from being right there.
Pugs usually just says one thing:
“WHERE’S MY BEER AND CIGARETTES AT???”
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who says “Where’s my BMW 540i at???”
