I said this in another thread. I’ll say it again.
Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. 2021 is pivotal for them. In my mind they have never lived up to expectations. Whether that was caused by injury is another point I guess. I think part of Martinez issue is because of his goofy antics.
Anyway, if they fail to live up to expectations in 2021 then in my mind its time to let them hit the road. Trade and get what you can. Dont resign them. Whatever. Sooner or later these two either have to fish or cut bait.
Well Pugs, the Esteemed Whitey Herdog is still recovering from her back and disc issue, IVDD. She is now walking a little, somewhat awkwardly, but at least she can now go to the bathroom on her own.
The Vet said to think of this rehab in terms of months, not days or weeks.
I’ll try and tune this one in. Hopefully I will be done jogging and watering my landscaping and out of the shower with a cigar in hand by the first 2-3 innings.
Lunch today was Subway, steak and cheese with lettuce, onions, mayo, mustard and four choc chip cookies and a Pepsi.
Din din later tonight will be a tuna salad sandwich, a piece of cherry pie, and another cigar.
I am calling this one 5-2 Redbirds.

What do you guys think of Verlander’s chances of ever being a quality starting pitcher again?

In my mind there are two guys that 2021 is a make-or-break season for. Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. If neither one produces in 2021, gets hurt, whatever, its time to cut bait and let them move on. Trade them, let them go, whatever.
We’ve gone long enough with these two guys and they have never lived up to expectations.

Marcell Ozuna is hitting .314 with 14 homeruns and 44 rbi’s.
What happened? Where was this in St. Louis?September 17, 2020 at 8:13 pm in reply to: 2020 Cardinals Game #46 – Thu, Sept. 17 at Pirates #140560
And now its 5-1 Pirates.
Looks like this one is going to fall into the L Column tonight.
Time to watch The Streets Of San Francisco.

Three run homer by Polanco off of Gomber. 3-1 Pirates. Not good.

We sure could use six good innings from Matsu Fujiwa in this one.
Rat – I absolutely love those upstart Bosse Bulldogs in tonight’s game vs Jasper. I’m calling it Evansville 37 Jasper 16.
You missed the call here. Jasper led Evansville Bosse 42-0 at the half. It was 28-0 with about 4:00 left in the 1st quarter.
r/Esteemed Rat<~~~~~who left at halftime
Whats the weather like in St. Louis? Overcast here in SW Indiana. Radar shows alot of green stuff north of St. Louis. Any chance this one gets delayed?
I’ll miss most of this one as I will be attending the Evansville Bosse Bulldogs at the Jasper Wildcats football game tonight.

How much of a pitch count will Martinez be on for this outing?
Three outs to go? I thought this was a 9 inning game?
Soft tossing Hendricks. Isnt it about time we lit him up, scored about 7-8 off of him the first 3-4 innings? Could we possibly take 4 of 5???
I remember they used to play the Shaft theme song when Brock would come up to bat. Listening to Cardinals games on the radio in the late 60s through the 70s was so awesome. And if the Cardinals were on Monday Night Baseball – THAT WAS HUGE!
I might have to replay a 1970s St. Louis Strat-O-Matic season this Fall just so I can manage Lou Brock…….
Reds lose 3-2 at Pittsburgh. Pirates score two in the last of the 9th off of Raisin Iglseeus.
Here’s my regular schedule of old TV shows I watch late at night:
Sunday – Open (Barnaby Jones, Charlie’s Angels, The Invaders)
Monday – Open (The Time Tunnel, Quincy, The Invaders, Charlie’s Angels)
Tuesday – Cannon
Wednesday – Perry Mason
Thursday – The Streets of San Francisco
Friday – Barnaby Jones
Saturday – Mannix (my all time #1 favorite)
Barnaby Jones episodes are on my DVD. I have all the DVDs. Usually watch Barnaby on Friday nights but with it being baseball season I watch on Sunday nights alot.
Pugs…..Today’s lunch menu will feature a center cut rib chop in the air fryer, a couple of more ears of Aces High sweet corn, some cut Italian green beans, a Pepsi or two, and a piece of banana cream pie from the Amish restaurant.
My late night snack tonight as I watch Barnaby Jones will be a bar-b-q rib sandwich and an Almond Joy bar along with a cigar.

How many times did O’Neill strikeout last night?
And how much longer do we tolerate his huge K totals?
Whats the over/under on O’Neill striking out at least twice tonight?
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~~who had a ribeye steak, two ears of corn, green beans, a couple of Pepsi’s, and a piece of banana cream pie for lunch.
Is the rain going to stay away?
Redbirds hang on. 7-5 your happy final. Aristotle Onassis struck out to end it.
Are they going to blow this one?????

On a good note the Reds scored twice in the last of the 7th off of Kimbrel and won the nightcap 6-5. There was a benches clearing incident that saw Votto, Winker, and Bell get ejected in about 5 seconds.
