How long will these players be out?
On a lighter note…….Albert Pujols hit a grand slam today for the Angels against the Astros.

What about the games coming up this week? Are they going to be postponed also?
I think the MLB season is circling the drain.
I agree BlingBoy. And if the season is shut down i cannot see how the NFL is going to play either. And i was really looking forward to football this year.

Will the DH be 7 inning games?
I didnt see the game last night. How did Martinez look?
I’ll say it again, i dont think he is ever going to become the pitcher we thought he was going to become a few years back. Just doesnt have it between the ears.
And the Cubs are out in front of the Reds again 6-2.
We are about to dig us a hole in this shortened season. There wont be no four game sweep at Wrigley in late September this year.
p.s Whitey Herdog is at the Vet. Been there two weeks plus now. Back/Disc/IVDD issues.
What happened to Moustakas of the Reds? It says he is on the IL because he is sick. The Reds announcers said they might be without him for two weeks. Losing his bat could be a blow for them.
And whats up with Justin Verlander?
I think that Kwang Hyun Kim is actually Kwang Hyun Cecil. At least from what i saw last night. Did we flop on another lefty reliever???
That BLM on the back of the mounds that i see. I think somebody was dyslexic, it should just be MLB..:)
Sorry, but i have to ask…….
Whats the weather look like in St. Louis for the game tonight?
After seeing him pitch a few times in his first year with the Cardinals i wondered what in blue blazes did anybody see in this guy?
He was terrible!!!!!
I meant the players are in the wrong spots. Not that the players are bad.
Wong should not be leading off.
DeJong should not be the cleanup hitter.
Carpenter should not be hitting 5th.
Thats a bad lineup.
Wont be long now!
Should be forthcoming very soon!
Is anybody starting to think that the 2020 season will ultimately be called off at the last minute?
So, here we are just two weeks from the start of the 2020 season. And here we are, almost five months from the last update.
Anybody have any news regarding how Alex Reyes is going to be used here in 2020?
Anybody got the Cardinal schedule yet?
I just saw on the MLB Network that the schedule has been approved by the players and will be released either Friday or Monday.
Still wondering if anyone knows anything about Hicks?
I disagree Euro, I think Welsh is outstanding!
The one that gets on my nerves is Carpenter of the Nats and his homerun call – SEE…..YOU…..LATER!!!
That just irritates the heck out of me.
The Giants duo of Kuiper and Krukow is outstanding. And I think DeShaies and Kasper of the Cubs are very good too.
Well, we are now into June. And I don’t see anything set in stone yet. Seems like the season is rapidly slipping away.
Anybody got any inside scoop on a possible season?
Not to worry as the bullpen came through in Game #2. Marquis was excellent through 7 innings and then Kline got the Brewers 1-2-3 in the 8th. Isringhausen gave up an infield single in the 9th to Jenkins, who went to 2nd on Womack’s throwing error. But Overbay lined into a 46 DP to end the game. 2-0 St. Louis your happy final.
I guess its sort of funny what happened in Game #1 of my 2004 St. Louis Replay against the Brewers. We all pretty much agreed that the 2004 bullpen was really good and the starting pitching wasn’t the bright spot of the team.
Matt Morris went seven innings, allowed no runs, three hits, no walks, struck out six, and left with a 4-0 lead. But the bullpen of Tavarez, King, and Isringhausen couldn’t hold the lead. Izzy gave up a game tying solo shot in the 9th to Wes Helms to tie the game 4-4.
Not to worry though as Edmonds walked it off with a two run dinger in the last of the 9th for a 6-4 win.
Yes, the bullpen appears to be very good for the 2004 Cardinals. Isringhausen, Tavarez, King, Kline, and Calero all gave up a lot few hits than innings pitched, good Whips.
Plus the Murderer’s Row that year put up these numbers:
Pujols – .331/46/123
Rolen – .314/34/124
Edmonds – .301/42/111
Womack – .307
Renteria – .287 w/37 doubles
Sanders – .260/22
Mabry – .296/13
Taguchi – .291
Walker – .280/11 after he came over in early August
So I guess its easy to see how this team won. So-So starting pitching, a pretty good bullpen, and pretty good defense. Along with a ton of offense.
I think we better forget about 2020 and start worrying about whether or not we are going to have baseball in 2021.
