So he’s on the 10 day DL. And then we read its significant.
Anybody got the definitive word here?
How many times did O’Neill strikeout in the minor leagues this year? I believe his strikeout rate was around 25%. That more than likely translates into about 33% or more in the big leagues. Unacceptable. If they strikeout too much in the minors its only going to get worse in the majors. They shouldn’t be in the big leagues until they get their strikeouts down in the minors.
As Chris Welsh, the Reds announcer, said a few weeks ago during the broadcast of a Reds game at Milwaukee…..”It used to be embarrassing to strikeout”……
Does anybody really believe that O’Neil belongs in the big leagues???
Randal Grichuk the 2nd.
Everybody realize the Cards go back to Milwaukee in three weeks? This time for a four game series. And then we are done in Milwaukee for the year. They still have two trips to St. Louis though.
You got that right Onyxgem. He’s been terrible so far. The Strike Two call on Gyorko wasn’t all that close. Heck, ol’ Jedd even had already tossed the bat away so he could head to first.
These announcers are stupid. So much stupid wrong stuff. And now they just said the Cardinals are off tomorrow.
0-0 after two, Reyes gets out of the bases loaded jam.
Where on FB can this be found? Will somebody post a link?
Rizzo doubled in his first atbat tonight in Pittsburgh. I assume the retaliation will be forthcoming soon.
Has anybody ever watched a Facebook game? Is the feed dependable? Does it slow down, stop, skip, etc?
I know everybody has high expectations for Reyes. But I’ve been around long enough to realize you need to understand its a results oriented business/game and so far Reyes really hasn’t don’t anything. Until he does I am not going to get too excited over him. Hopefully he will be the Ace we have needed for years but I’m not expecting that.
That could have been a career ending injury for the Pirate catcher right there.
Again, all I can say is….”DUCK RIZZO!”
I guess the kicker (no pun intended) here is that he could still touch Homeplate. Like the runner breaking up a doubleplay at 2ndbase, as long as he can touch the bag its deemed okay.
When I saw the replay I thought it was okay. But once you see the right angle he was about a foot in front of homeplate and clearly going after the catcher. Granted he could still touch the plate with his right hand but to slide into a defenseless catcher like that is total horsesh~t.
Wait and see in the game tomorrow night. Duck Rizzo. You deserve what you have coming.
Carpenter is an above average MLB 1stbaseman?????
Don’t tell me, let me guess, there is some W9B or ZRU or BP1BO metric that says that, right?
All you have to do is use your eyes and you can see how bad he is. That was obvious last year too. And if you cant see it, then you simply don’t know baseball.
I don’t know about the rest of you posters but every time Jose Martinez takes the field to play 1stbase I cringe. He’s an accident waiting to happen. He has no skills at all to play 1stbase. If you don’t hit him in the chest with the throw or the grounder doesn’t go right to him its time to panic. Carpenter is pretty much in the same boat as well.
We don’t have a 1stbaseman and a shortstop. Two of the most important defensive positions and it rears its ugly head every now and then. And I don’t consider DeJong a shortstop either.
Where do the Brewers rank as a team in the NL as far as total strikeouts go?
We are catching a Milwaukee team that is hot. They are on a roll. Very good chance we lose 2 of 3, or more, in this series. However, Weaver seems to pitch well at PNC Park so maybe he can toss a gem for us today.
Has Reyes starting this game been confirmed yet?
Lets hope that Reyes pitches on Tuesday night then. I’ll have to give Matheny a call to ensure.
Does this mean the Wednesday afternoon game will NOT be on FSMW?
This team is a mess. They will get swept by the Pirates – AGAIN!
I’ve almost reached the point where I think its time to tear this team down and start a rebuild. Just sickens me to see EVERY player swing like a maniac just so they can get a few more dollars one of these days. Geez, how about just trying to put the ball in play???
They are in Milwaukee next week Sooner so he wouldn’t pitch in St. Louis until the following weekend. Not sure who is in St. Louis for that weekend series.
Now if we get Reyes back and can trade Fowler for Mike Trout straight-up we would be in business.
Are we going to get an update on his outing tonight in Memphis?
Bumping in hopes of getting confirmation of Reyes starting next week in Milwaukee.
