Hey James. Sorry I haven't posted as much as I should here considering the lack of Cards fans. Seems like the team started a little sluggish but playing better lately. Hope they can put a little run together. How is the pitching looking? I know Motte is out, but not sure about the rest. Did Waino turn it around after getting blasted in the opener?
No worries man. Sluggish..I guess. I mean a loss is a loss, but our losses have been weird. One was a 16 inning game, one we lost 1-0 because we walked a run in, another we had the Reds beat all game til the 9th inning. Just weird stuff. Pitching has been great. The starting pitching for sure. Wainwright bounced back and went 7 innings and got the win @SF. Lynn had a 10K game. Garcia has had a 10K game. Westbrook had a CG SHO vs. the Reds. Miller is pitching now and looks unbelievable. Has a 1 hitter going. 7IP 1H 0R 0BB 8K. Yadi just hit a HR in the 7th to make it 2-0 Cardinals.
This team is MUCH better than its record shows. 2nd in MLB in runs so far, SP has been amazing, and bullpen has been solid. Only issue all season has been that 9th inning by the bullpen a few days ago. Boggs bounced back the next day though and retired Votto, Phillips, Bruce all in order in the 9th.
