This game has been way too long to be 1-1.
Reyes will give it up, hope I'm wrong
Feel bad for Reyes
Well the 17-game winning streak was nice.
Hopefully Mo doesn’t use it as an excuse to do nothing in offseason but he absolutely will.
Was a great battle but damn it
leaving so many runs on base sucked
Well, Dodgers deserve to be in the next round much more than this team does. Not sure why Reyes was put in there at the end. Wouldn’t call it a great season by any stretch but got hot at the right time and played the best team in baseball in a winner take all that went down to the final bat. Maybe some pitchers will stay healthy next year.
It’s not like Reyes hasn’t been good for half a season.
Hello, where have you guys been?
I was looking for this thread the other day. I know he’s old, but I’m so glad Pujols is back in a cardinals uniform. I stopped following baseball closely when he left.
Bought tickets the other day for the Phillies series in July. Damn tickets are so expensive.
I’ll be in St Louis next week. Gonna try and make my first trip to the stadium Thursday.
Still here. Like this team so far. Pujols has already been better than expected.
Staff still scares me but they’ll play defense and Nolan is raking
Early returns on Marmol are good. Only playing Albert vs lefties, Moving Edman up in the order against lefties and not going to the same relievers every time is what you want to see.
Giving Carlson a day off is good. Rotation leaves a lot to be desired, but cautiously optimistic so far.
any legit hope for Flaherty this season?
He will pitch this season. He's already throwing again. I think you have to take the same approach as you have with Reyes. Dont count on his production. Anything you get from him is bonus.
Need Hudson to get comfortable.
The rotation will collapse at some point. It’s a long season. Either we get some pixie dust performances or they make a move or that will eventually catch up and doom us.
I like the lineup a lot. And Marmol seems like the kind of manager who won’t lose games with dumb decisions, which is all I can ask from a manager.
Ultimately comes down to the players we have, which falls on the FO. Wish I had more confidence in them to get what we need.
The front office is limited by ownership. They saw an extremely weak division and thought "what is the bare minimum/cheapest it will take to win it?" And that's what they do. Matz was a good add. The fact they didnt go get Stroman or another starter is infuriating.
Yeah, I’ve always liked Matz as a solid 3/4 and wasn’t upset with that signing in a vacuum. But as soon as they signed him I knew that was all they were going to do. With Flaherty being a question mark all year (even if he does come back in the near future), they needed to add at least one more dependable starter and preferably one who could even help anchor the rotation.
Expecting Waino to keep this up all year is a big ask, but then I didn’t think he’d keep it up last year, either.
But they’ll roll the dice aiming for 85 wins and hope they get hot at the right time. It’s their MO now.
Can’t complain too much but it sure would be nice to complete a sweep against bad teams.
What a collapse, Gallegos isn't a closer
Lol at blaming that on Gallegos. If Arenado makes a throw he’s made 100s of times, this game is over
I didnt watch, only checking box scores, but Gallegos still isn't a closer. Great stuff but not enough swing and miss
I’m treating this as the general St. Louis thread. Any restaurant recommendations? Staying across from Busch.
Besides Imo’s of course.
Grace Meat and Three, Pappys BBQ, Beast BBQ, Salt and Smoke, Vin de Set (better for brunch), Hamilton’s Steakhouse, Hi Pointe Drive-In
Hello at the show!! Mikolas looks very sharp
McFarland slanging soft serve, BUM
This team is garbage.
Everyone thought the rotation would be the weak spot. It's the strongest part of the team
Liberatore looks good, too bad Dickerson and Carlson are patrolling
Let him finish the inning, good or bad, not a fan of Marmol so far
Dickerson over Nootbaar at this point is criminal, cut his ass
Hey dudes, starting to plan a trip to Saint Louis with the fam. Myself, wife, and two kids headed that way for a game and to see the city museum. Any recs on places to stay either around the ballpark or elsewhere? Appreciate it.
Gorman off to a good start
There’s a Hilton right next to the Ballpark which is a very nice place. Hyatt Regency probably a block or two away. Also nice. Union Station Hotel is pricey and not as updated as it should be from a room standpoint but there’s a ton of stuff to do for the kids within walking distance.
Awesome, thank you.
Dickerson blows, please cut loose
We always stay at the Hyatt which is nice and located right by the Arch, typically $50-100/night cheaper than any other nice place closer. It's worth it to travel a little further south of Busch for 4 Hands brewery and the neighborhoods around instead of downtown. Broadway oyster bar slaps as well on the way south
Walk off Granny
Lars better be getting his ABs now that he's back.
