    Well, what a great start. Three strikeouts in the top of the 1st by the Cardinals and then the Nationals plate five runs on us in the last of the 1st. Sayonara 2019.

    What did he hit, .281 in AA?

    He’d have to see some MAJOR improvement for him to be in St. Louis for opening day next year.

    After seeing the list I am starting to think we might want to “give in” to Ozuna a little bit and keep him around for another 2-3 years.

    Anybody know what the QO will be to Ozuna?

    And what it might take to get him to re-sign?

    What, no posts yet? The mark of a champion is to do like Winston Churchill said in his famous speech:

    Never give up
    Never give up
    Never give up

    I aint going to give up.

    Well, everyone, whats for vittles tonight? I am having chili, some bacon, and a chocolate shake. But first, through the early innings, it will be a 7×50 Palma Real cigar. Then vittles. Then another cigar to cap off a 5-1 St. Louis victory.

    Does it surprise anyone that Dusty Baker’s name is being tossed around for some of the managerial openings? The latest one is with Philadelphia.

    Personally, it boggles my mind that anybody would consider hiring him.

    Mo and the rest of those in charge will probably want the team kept intact for next year. Their reasoning is that most players had bad years this year save Wong, Molina, and Edman. Goldschmidt, Ozuna, DeJong, Carpenter, Fowler, and Bader all had bad years. They will argue they expect them to return to normalcy next year and that could propel the Cards to bigger and better things.

    There could be some logic behind that reasoning. But then again, Ozuna may fly the coop so who knows.

    I do have one question:

    What happened to Carlos Martinez velocity? I thought he threw around 97-98 somewhat consistently. Seems he’s around 93 anymore.

    Did I miss something?

    Poor Cardinal-in-France is going to wake up soon and see what happened.

    Poor guy.

    On the triple by Eaton in the 7th. Fowler loafed – LOAFED – after the ball when it was at the wall. And Eaton beat the throw into 3rd by a whisker.

    Seems to me if Fowler would have busted a gut to get to that ball he could have held Eaton to a double or got him out at 3rd.

    Anybody else notice this? Or will everyone pile on me because I seem to be mean and saying bad things about our Cardinals?

    Hows come you guys get to make your comments about Pham and nothing happens???

    I make what was a “JOKE” about Pham and a Mod tells me to knock it off. My comment might have been in bad taste but it was a JOKE!

    Its rainy and windy and the temps are dropping here in SW Indiana so I am NOT going to the Jasper @ Washington football game tonight. Besides, Jasper will blow them out, probably 42-0 or something like that.

    So, that means that me and Whitey Herdog will be tuned in to the NLCS. The Doppler Radar shows all clear in St. Louis although its going to be cool tonight, around 55 at game time. Upper 50s for the tomorrow afternoon game. We may very well see cool temps this entire series.

    At first pitch I will be having a 7×50 Palma Real cigar and after its done it will be time to have a bowl of Hungry Man’s Sirloin Burger soup, some Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies, and then a chocolate shake. And then another 7×50 Palma Real cigar for the late innings. Then after the game probably an episode of Barnaby Jones. And who knows, maybe ANOTHER 7×50 Palma Real cigar whilst I watch Barnaby.

    Here are the Umpires for this NLCS. At least for Game One:

    HP – Mike Muchlinski
    1B – Chris Conroy
    2B – Bill Miller (CC)
    3B – Phil Cuzzi
    LF – Chad Fairchild
    RF – Fieldin Culbreth

    Replay, Games 1 & 2: Chris Guiccione
    Replay, Games 3-7: Mike Muchlinski

    As a side note, from what I have seen Phil Cuzzi is a terrible balls/strikes umpire.

    We are getting off topic here. Lets get back to the original topic.

    The success we have had in the playoffs now over-shadows some of the season disappointments. Like the 2011 World Series run, that made me forget all about Brandon Phillips walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 9th at Cincinnati off of Salas. Boxscore below.

    The Martinez boys act like goofs. That is irrefutable. It cant be denied.

    Carlos Martinez has never lived up to expectations. Is that because he’s got that goofy attitude and not the serious Bob Gibson type attitude?

    Jose Martinez had his worst year at the plate this year. Is that because he’s got that goofy attitude and not the serious Bob Gibson type attitude?

    I guess its Baseball 2019. But I don’t like it. Its all over the game. Gold chains, rings, jewelry, tattoos, hair colors/styles, etc. All the celebrating on the basepaths, showing up other teams, fans, pitchers, etc. And the Martinez boys are our main culprits. Its not – NOT – Cardinal Baseball.

    gscottar,
    We had rain this morning, about a half inch so far. The Doppler Radar shows a bunch more headed our way. Jasper will blow out Washington probably around 42-0 so I think I will stay home and watch the NLCS.

    And speaking of rain in St. Louis, the guy on the MLB Network last night said the rain is supposed to be out of St. Louis this afternoon and the game will be played. The radar shows most of the rain already out of the St. Louis area.

    Its going to be another Yankees/Astros ALCS. Houston with a 6-1 lead in the last of the 8th. Should be quite entertaining.

    As a Redbird fan I am hoping for a Yankees ALCS title.

    Forecast is for rain in the St. Louis area tomorrow. Will it be moved out by game time? Here in SW Indiana we are forecast for some much needed rain tomorrow as well. That might prevent me from going to the Jasper @ Washington football game tomorrow night and watching Game 1 of the NLCS.

    14NyquisT,
    You keep saying all of these teams aren’t that good. And you seem to be right in your assessments. Keep up the good work!

    Pugs apparently now has two prognosticators he can rely on.
