Alfaro is the last shot and he grounds out to Wong! 5-0 Cards your final. Way to go, ‘Birds!
Another grounder…2 down.
Hicks in and gets a grounder for the first out.
How about a 3 run homer?? 5-0 Cards!!!
Well, it’s looking like the back to back hits may go for naught unless Dexter can come through here.
Well, that was a quick inning. Five pitches…three outs including a hit. On to the bottom of the 8th.
Ravelo with his big league debut!
He hits a sharp grounder the other way but the Marlin 1B makes a nice play and retires him.
Other than the double, Gallegos was his usual self. Two Ks and a ground ball. 2-0 at the stretch.
Mikolas wiggles out of a bit of a jam in the 7th. I’d imagine that’s it for him. Hope to see some more Redbird runs to make it more comfortable for the pen.
Andrew Warner went deep in both games of the State College doubleheader as they got the sweep. He has a case for Player of the Day but for my money, you’ve got to go with Fagalde’s debut.
Pugs must be beaming right now…Alexander the Great’s Springfield debut: 8IP, 2H, 0R, 1BB, 4K. He threw only 80 pitches before ceding to Junior Fernandez who slammed the door shut in the 9th.
When was the last time Carp had 2 hits in a game and how many times has that happened this year?
He’s had 2 hits 10 times (most recently June 9 against the Cubs) and 3 hits twice, May 4 against the Cubs and May 25 against the Braves.
Well, that blunder hurts the Marlins. 2-0 Cards as they drop the fly ball.
OK, Marp. That’s how you beat the shift…a bunt double!
Bader just barely misses a home run…and then strikes out. It’s a game of inches.
There’s a Marp homer. This team really needs him to get on a roll. He doesn’t have to be the MVP level player he was this time last year, but .270 with an OBP in the upper .300s and some power would be great.
Listening to Thompson and Danny Mac trying to make a case to vote Cardinal players in the ASG. Do they actually think that any of our players have done enough to be voted in by fans.
I think you could make a pretty good case for Paul Dejong as a starter. He leads NL shortstops in WAR and trails only Tatis Jr, who’s missed a lot of games, in wRC+. You could probably put Ozuna in as a backup if you look at the OF positions individually. Maybe Gant as a reliever. That’s probably it.
I’d think Leone, Urias or Robinson seem like candidates.
I decided to buy tickets yesterday and drive in from Kentucky for the game Friday. Needless to say, I will be cheerly loudly for Pujols. Haha
As you should. His presence alone made the 2006 and 2011 titles possible. He’s one of the all time greats and I hope he gets a crazy long ovation.
Also, glad to see you pop in here. It’s been a while. Enjoy the game this Friday!
Hernandez had a respectable line last time out with only 3 ER allowed in 5-2/3 IP. One would hope a second crack at the same guy in a week would result in the bats coming alive.
The next 30 games the Cards play are against teams at or below .500 with the exception of 3 games after the break against the Dbacks, who could be a losing team by then anyway. I really hope the bats can get moving because they could really make a move if so.
Good win today, guys. Way to bring it home. Now let’s start seeing some momentum build. That team that played so well in April is still in there somewhere.
I will try not to be too long-winded. I will almost certainly fail.
Which is exactly what we like, Bob. I’ll be looking forward to this. Hope the big league club gets going better so that you can tolerate watching again soon, too.
Is this on the players or the front office?
90% players, 10% front office.
But far from ‘greatest in baseball history.
I can’t find all time stats on anything but grand slams, but I doubt many have a batting average better than .500 in that many chances. So I wouldn’t call it that hyperbolic. It’s definitely not laughable to say it.
I agree that he’s not pulling his weight this year. Between he, Goldy and Flaherty, that’s three guys we expected to be stars that have been average at best. That’s the difference between mediocre and a very good season so far.
