    I wonder if Carpenter is licking his chops heading into the launching pad at Great American? Anybody went to venture a guess as to how many dingers he has in this series? I am going to predict a meager one.

    The Doppler Radar shows some green stuff in the Chicago area. Any chance this one gets delayed or postponed today? Hope not because its not often we have a chance to take a series at Wrigley nowadays.

    What, no posts???

    Carpenter with another homerun.

    But DeJong hits into a DP with the bases loaded in the 5th to keep the score 1-1. It was a 1-2-3 DP.

    And now the Cubs get to Weaver and plate a run to take a 2-1 lead and have runners at the corners with still nobody out.

    This one is probably a lost cause. Weaver is now out.

    Yes, I was able to post – SOME OF WHAT I WROTE. But some words and sentences failed to appear. I tried to edit two or three times and finally gave up. You can see my post doesn’t really make any sense.

    I am still getting this every so often. Like right now, this very second. I even logged out and logged back in but still get the “Error – Your Reply Cannot Be Created At This Time.” error message.

    Any fixes, or what am I doing wrong???

    NOTE: It let me post in this thread but not the thread about the Cards/Cubs DH on Saturday.

    Seems to me that the Redbirds struggle against Lester most of the time. The Cubs have now won four straight and I expect this one to be in their favor as well. The young St. Louis hurler gets his baptism at Wrigley in this one. Cubs take this titanic struggle 7-1.

    Bw52 and bccran,

    I pretty much agree with what you guys are saying. This is the 4th year of Martinez as a starter and I keep hearing how much potential he has. Well…..WHERE THE HECK IS IT????????

    All I see is a goofball.

    And speaking of goofballs, we have two on the team. And they are both named Martinez. Jose Martinez goofiness has already wore thin on me to the point where he needs to go. Now if he was hitting .330 I could tolerate him. But geez, he cant even catch the dang ball!!!

    Jager,
    If the Cardinals win four games or more in this series you send me your address and I will send you a $10 bill. And i’d be happy to do it!

    r/Rat

    p.s. that’s $10, NOT $100. I am a poor retiree. Time to go for a ride in my Alfa Romeo 4C.

    This is just about a sink or swim series. If we lose four or perhaps all five, time to start thinking 2019. If we could win two or three our heads are still above water.

    This might be a big start for Martinez. Its time he started to live up to his hype over the last few years.

    To me the key to all of this is that it appears Machado is just a rental. Once Seager returns what do they do with Machado? Would he even consider resigning with the Dodgers? Where would he play? Could they move him or Seager over to 2ndbase? Would he consider that?

    And its my understanding, with the luxury tax issue, that the Dodgers simply couldn’t afford to sign him.

    Do the Redbirds make him an 8 year, $300M offer in the off-season?

    Funny, when I saw this thread I was wondering how many pages we would end up with. I was figured probably around 12-15. And here we are at 37 pages.

    Only the best fans in baseball could pull this one off……

    p.s. I am STILL the manager of the Cardinals in Strat-O-Matic.

    Ironic, I suppose, that back in April the Reds were in St. Louis (or on their way to. St. Louis) when their manager was fired. And now about three months later the Reds are back in St. Louis and the Cardinal manager is fired.

    I wonder who gets fired the next time the Reds come to St. Louis???

    The Reds announcers, Welsh and Brennaman, were talking on the broadcast today that Matheny was really feeling the heat.

    Sort of a shame, really. The players don’t perform and its the manager that gets fired. But like Herzog used to say……Managers are hired to be fired.

    The next two weeks has started off with a pitiful loss. 9-1 to the Reds. I’m afraid by the time the five games in four days series at Wrigley is over next weekend the season will be over for the Cardinals.

    Cards had bases loaded with one out in the 8th, trailing 3-0. Both Pham and Martinez strike out. Both swung like maniacs instead of just trying to make contact. It was Pham’s fourth strikeout tonight. Before long he is going to be down in the .220s.

    This one is just about history.

    Two crazy games last night. The Reds get seven runs in the 9th to beat Cleveland 7-4. And the Astros win on a walk-off 8-foot smash by Bregman in extra innings. You sort of had to see it to believe it.

    Lets hope young Mr. Weaver can take up where he left off in San Francisco last week. And I hope Dexter Addams is in the lineup again tonight too.

    On the out-of-town scoreboard tonight…….the Reds get seven runs in the 9th and down the Indians by the score of 7-4. What a comeback win that was.

    They wont be easy to handle this weekend. We need both games against the ChiSox.

    Speaking of bad baseball……did anybody see the utterly bonehead play that Joey Votto pulled during the Reds game with the Cubs on Sunday afternoon?

    Fields a grounder down the line in the last of the 10th and has it in his glove and all he has to do is step on the bag for the 2nd out. He tried to take it out of his glove as he steps on 1stbase and bobbles it. The umps review it and call the runner safe. That loads the bases with one out and the next batter walks to win it for the Cubs.

    Chris Welsh even called it bad baseball. Ridiculous play of the year as far as I am concerned.

    Okay Mr. Brian Walton, whats the scoop on Molina? Two days in a row not in the starting lineup. This isn’t something serious, is it?

    And by the way, my neighbors are the Waltons.

    Why is the place so dead?

    Redbirds lead 1-0 in the 3rd on a high chopper over Pablo’s head by Carlos Martinez.

    Then Pham fouls a ball into the dirt and it bounces up and hits him in the Molina territory.

    10-4 good buddies.
