They would be options but I'd have to see a little more of Flaherty this week before I would go that far.
There was no need to tag any base, only players who were off base. The only person automatically out on the infield fly is the hitter. There is no force play involved.
There was a critical infield fly that went against the Braves in the 2012 wild-card game in Atlanta. The Cardinals, who were in the field at the time, did not catch the ball, benefited and won the game.
Yes, manager Herzog would be happy you remembered that. That was his best team in Kansas City but it blew a 2-1 lead in the ALCS to the eventual world champion Yankees.
I think everybody is curious to see what kind of starter Reyes would be and next year we need to find out. But his control will have to be better
The Cardinals' lefthanded bench of Carpenter and Nootbaar, while occasionally productive, is not good enough. They need a lefthanded hitter who could play in the outfield, first base and serve as the DH (if there is one).
The best play was to throw the ball to second right away, where you had two runners (one on either side of the base) who seemed to have no idea what was up.
I would not anticipate the radio team changing very much from the ones you just mentioned.
He's here. But he always was going to be there. There is another opt-out next year, though.
If Gorman is deemed ready offensively for the big leagues, then he will be here. The staff will figure out the rest later.
They have several eras to their selections now and I'm not sure when Mike's name can come up again. But it should have happened before now.
Luis Garcia easily has surprised me the most. After his first couple of games, he has been lights-out.
They won't have to do that until Tuesday, at least. Remember the wild-card game is like any playoff series. You have 26 players but you don't need four or five starting pitchers. At the most, you need two (one for extra innings). Thus, there may be room for another bench player or bullpen pitcher.
Carp, I'm afraid, is done here--unless he accepts a minor league deal with an invite to camp.
That is a head scratcher. The Cubs were lucky to have runners anywhere.
If he would take a one-year deal. Maybe.
I think Carp might make one start at first and one at third. But it appears Arenado and Goldschmidt want to play every game and they are both resting today.
Shildt is picking up steam but Gabe Kapler of the Giants has to win this year. Their club doesn't seem that good, but it is.
You never can tell when the magic words were uttered--frontwards or backwards. But I can read lips. And there were a couple that his late mother probably wouldn't have liked.
All channels should remain open, including the one featuring Nolan Gorman. But pitching comes first.
Got to have another veteran starter in there, just for protection, which they didn't have much for a while this season.
