I would say 30% defense, 70% bad baserunning by 3 seperate Cub players

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

Its been fun to watch. My life is always better when the Cardinals are playing meaningful games this time of year. I agree, its hard to believe this is the same group of guys. They performed so poorly, so often. Now watch Paul DeJong get hot, and Matt Carpenter go on a terror the last week enough to...

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

I didnt get to see todays game, but this run is unreal. I never would have thought they had it in them. It looks like they are gonna get the 2nd wild card. So all of this for a one game do or die. But I'll take it

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

Not good. Wonder if he aggravated it on that foul ball catch. So Im sure we will see DJ at SS at Sosa at 3b....or maybe Sosa at SS and Carp at 3b for at least one game, either way automatic outs. DJ might strike out 9 times and hit one HR, Carp will K, hit into the shift, or fly out.

Honestly I didn't hate it. But I was way more concerned with a bases loaded walk, I mean we do lead the world in those.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

Im pleasantly stunned at this development. It took the perfect storm of the other potential WC teams being awful lately, and the Cardinals being just good enough. As for Mike Schilt, he is a high school coach. It kind of blows my mind that they think this is the right guy. He must be making like 16....

Fields or Dalton dont play D....the D line was bad. Was there even a pass rush? The secondary was lost. I am tired of the teams that I love being terrible.

In 169 at-bats as a starting player Sosa has four homers, five doubles and three triples. Sosa has started games at shortstop, second base and third base. In his 86 starts this season s...

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

So the cardinals begin another stretch of games against teams with worse or similar records with 2 losses. Maddening. There was starting to be some chatter about 2nd wildcard chances....I kno, wishful false hope. Better than nothing.. but now its nothing

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

Again personal preference. I loved jim as a player..but I've never learned anything I didnt kno from him on a broadcast. I also dont care for john Rooney. I like Horton alot. Hes more insightful than Edmonds, imo.

You are right, its a low bar. Its a personal preference, but I dont think Edmonds is hands down the best, but I dont know who I like better. I dont like any of them. The radio side is the same thing. Terrible. On the radio, give me Pat Hughs any day. And another thing..if they were dying to pick up ...

Is Happ going tonight, might as well get that out of the way. Mike Shilt is kind of an *** clown. I dont know the dude at all, but I feel like he sleeps in his uniform, and maybe his hat.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

Nice first inning for Lester in his Cardinal debut. 30+ pitches. 5 runs, 2-3 walks, HR, couple of hits. A mound visit, a reliever already throwing. And a little composure loss with home plate umpire. More to come

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

The only thing DJ does better offesnively is hit HR. Sosa BA, OBP and strilkeout rate are way better. He puts the ball in play more often and gets on base more. DJ does hit the ball out of the park alot more. And, as an aside I like Sosa as an all around player more.

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2021

Sosa is probably not an everyday, season long starter. But when he plays hes better than DeJong. Give him as many starts as you can until he dips to DJ level. But that is just one small peice of this broken puzzle.
