Brewers have jumped out to a 4-0 lead on the Cubs in the top of the 3rd at Wrigley. Grimm on in relief of Montgomery and he promptly balks in a run.
And c’mon Martinez. Lets see that stupid purple hair of yours do something good for us in this game.
Brewers down the Cubs 2-0 at Wrigley. They need at least two of three against the Cubs this weekend to make the games the last week and a half important.
What, not even one post in this thread?
1-0 Cardinals in the top of the 4th.
At least if Stanton was in St. Louis he wouldn’t have to worry about hurricanes like Irma.
Cubs have taken a 1-0 lead in the top of the 9th. Looks like we will need a win to stay four games behind them.
Cubs and Pirates are in a scoreless tie in the last of the 7th at PNC Park. Would be nice for the Pirates to pull off another win and give us the chance to creep to within three games with over three weeks to go.
We got a lineup yet?
The Brewers lost at Cincinnati again today. 7-1 Reds the final. Could we possibly move in front of the Brewers tonight?
And is this Nicasio any good?
For those that didn’t see the game last night and think Cecil got the job done in his one inning stint, here are the facts.
The first batter smashed a double down into the LF corner. The next batter smashed a hard groundball down toward the 3rd base line that Mejia made a good backhanded play and threw the runner out. The next batter smashed a line drive right at Mejia who caught it and fired to Valera to double off the runner at 2nd.
He faced the minimum, but was lucky he didn’t give up three hits.
On a good note, the Cubs lose again at Pittsburgh by the score of 4-3. And Milwaukee trails at Cincinnati by the score of 7-1 late in the game.
We could only be four games out of 1st after tonight, and right on the heels of the Brewers.
Love these late night west coast games for the Cardinals. And the Reds, WhiteSox, and Cubs too. I’ll tape this one tonight for viewing later this winter when I need my baseball fix.
Anxious to see the lineup for tonight. Wonder if Wong will be leading off again?
I agree jager.
And another thing to consider is that it seems to me that to solidify your name as one of the greats of the game means you need a World Series ring. That seems a lot more possible it will happen to him with St. Louis rather than with Miami.
Uh, Carlos, how about quit being ignorant and goofy for a few hours and try your best to give us a good performance on the mound today. You are, or at least were, expected to be our ace. How about a serious approach with some killer instinct instead of silly crazy antics.
I thought it was quite interesting to hear the Cardinal announcers talk about how the new Miami ownership wants to cut payroll. Other articles out there about the same thing.
As Tim and Dan said, would be great to see Stanton in St. Louis for ten years.
The Cardinals do NOT, under any circumstances, need revamped or rebuilt or the house cleaned. They just need two, maybe three key players. Alex Reyes might end up being one of them. Then a late reliever and a big bat and who knows, I can envision 90+ wins in 2018 – easily.
I think we are going to regret this one. Tim McCarver even said he expects Siegrist to do well.
And Hundley ends it with a homerun in the last of the 10th against Sheriff. 2-1 Giants the final.
I beg to differ about Oh. Lyons gave up the leadoff hit to Pence and the ball that Posey hit was a really good slider, low and outside. Posey just stuck his bat out and got a soft liner into right. Cant blame this one on Oh.
Assume Piscotty will be in the lineup today after his big night last night. Would be nice to get him going the last month. We can always pray for a miracle.
And remember, in 1964 and 2011 people had already stopped praying for that miracle the outlook was so bleak. Look what happened.
Yeah BW, I think Piscotty, Carpenter, Fowler, Oh, Cecil, Diaz, Grichuk, and whoever else will rebound and do better in 2018. With a big bat in the lineup and a late inning reliever I can see the Cardinals winning 90+ games in 2018. Especially if Alex Reyes returns.
Sometimes when I read these posts I am sooooo glad some of you posters are NOT running the Cardinals. Surely some of these posts are just people dreaming???
Yes, I agree, i’d like Ozzie Smith at SS, Don Mattingly at 1B, Hank Aaron in RF, and Ryne Sandberg at 2B. It would be nice to deal Carp/Grichuk/Piscotty for Willie Mays too.
The majority of what you see on the field now is what the 2018 Cardinals will look like. The only thing that’s needed is a power bat and a late inning relief guy. Most of the rest is going to stay the same. We are just 1, maybe 2, players away from being right there.
What can anyone tell me about Flaherty? What kind of stuff does he have? Hard thrower? Or a Maddux/Glavine type? What can I expect to see?
Hurricane Harvey sent us some rain up here in SW Indiana so I wont be going to any high school football game tonight. I’ll be watching my Friday night Barnaby Jones episode about 9:30 and then once its over i’ll flip it over to catch Flaherty’s debut.
Molina is our worst hitting regular? I thought he was around .280? Arent Grichuk, Fowler, Carpenter, etc, all down around .240?
You mean Siegrist is being let go?????????
I agree with your line of thinking. However, I tend to agree he is better off as a sub and that we need to find a better everyday 3rdbaseman. After all, Giancarlo Gyorko is a career .244 hitter. That’s .244.
I wonder if getting Flaherty his first start on the road, in a pitchers ballpark, away from the scrutiny he might receive at Busch, and against a team that isn’t very good, is all part of the plan? If so I would assume PuggsleyAdams would concur.
I agree Brianpnoonan, we now have $$$ for Stanton.
And does anybody have any idea if Alex Reyes will be ready for the rotation at the start of 2018? Or will he be a bullpen guy?
