It couldn't hurt. It makes for a more interesting game. And they've need it, given their confounding offensive struggles.
We've only seen him a couple of times but he looks better. Getting lefthanders out would be the key and he hasn't always done that.
Actually 1982. It was either Tito Landrum or David Green.
That's the way it's going to be. And should be. But Carpenter has to produce. If not, all bets are off.
As TLR often said, "Men. Not machines."
I guess you've ceded the division title to the Cubs. I would say the Nats and Phils have better clubs than the Brewers, whom the Cardinals play nine more times. They have three left with Washington, none with Philadelphia, so no control over that one.
The last time I saw him was this summer when he was walking his dog in the neighborhood. Other than the occasional autograph gig, I'm not sure if he is involved in baseball.
Yes, that's the deception of pitching. I guess one of the keys is knowing which pitches a pitcher actually has, in the first place. More importantly, it is getting ahead in the count where you then can expect him to throw his fastball. Often a good slider isn't recognizable until it is right on top of you. Too late then.
He has the arm for it. We'll see. '
I was surprised, especially after Flaherty fanned Puig. Shildt and Maddux get a lot of credit for yesterday's win, pulling pitchers at just the right time and bringing in others.
These things don't show up until a year or later, so I'll have to withhold judgment for a while.
I do not think the Cardinals are going to let Ozuna walk without making an offer.
You can't bench everybody. Who are you going to put in? His fielding has been almost flawless. Nobody is hitting.
Tell me who you have in mind and what position he plays.
Neither, I trust, was Morgana, the Kissing Bandit.
I would hope he would get another chance and a longer leash this time, but I fear this isn't going to happen.
The Cubs have shown a pulse recently and the Cardinals, too. The Brewers' fans probably are scratching their heads. Pittsburgh's and Cincinnati's will be in football mode soon.
What a nice thing to say. I'm thinking most of Derrick's chats still are available to all, however. I hope so.
Yadi is kind of free-wheeling on social media, I'm told. I did not see the post, however, so my comment wouldn't really be relevant.
Good for Carson Kelly. Molina's season isn't over. In some past year, he has been a much more productive hitter in the second half of the season.
