That is a salty lineup tonight and it doesn't even include Alvarez

Orbit boner gif indeed

Busch Stadium is kind of an old school ballpark.

335 down the lines and 375 to the power alleys. No cheap homers here.

Cardinals rank 11th in the NL in home runs and 13th in slugging

That lineup with Yordan is as good as it gets. Add a solid #2 to sit between Cole and Miley and we have 1, 1a, high 2 and low 2. That's as good a lineup as anyone will trot out. I'll take my chances. So Mr Lunhow, get us a solid #2

Really curious where Yordan is slotted back in AL parks. My guess is 5 and move everyone down, based on this lineup.


6. I doubt AJ goes lefty with back to back hitters
He's been doing it for weeks already with Brantley at 4 and Yordan at 5. Has worked out fine.
I think the rule about not going back-to-back with lefties is more applicable in the playoffs where situational pitching changes are much more common.

Since we haven't had many lefties during Hinch's tenure we're not exactly sure how he will play it but I have a feeling he would prefer to split them up rather than give the opposing team the chance to bring in a situational lefty.

What's interesting if you put Yordon 6, you basically get 2 innings in a row of a 3rd spot hitter.

Inning 1 - 1 Springer, 2 Altuve, 3 Bregman

Inning 2 - 1 Brantley, 2 Correa, 3 Yordon

If that's the case we went 6 up and 6 down.

To be fair to that ump, he handled Boone's tirade extremely well. Threw him from the game because he crossed a line, but then he let Boone get his money's worth and never looked anything but calm and collected. IIRC his zone was much better after the incident too.

Paxton and the Yankees getting shelled again at Fenway --- they need more than 1 starting pitcher

This is an awesome stadium! Sitting out in left center tonight by the Astros bullpen

Lots of cool bars behind the gates, and their street is lined with Cardinals stuff. Wish Minute Maid could do something like that. Reminds me of Wrigleyville

If they want a 4 man playoff rotation with starters anywhere near a 4.0 ERA, then they need 4 new SP's

Butterfly on Correas shoulder is a sign from the baseball gods that all is right again.

Ump is a scrub. Called a strike an inch off the plate to springer and squeezing urquidy for a ball on a borderline pitch

a rather uneventful first 2 innings.

maybe some excitement is coming in the 3rd

Urquidy looks like he could be a good back of the rotation guy. Seems pretty composed.


Flame away.

When Urkeeding gets guys on base and gets out of the windup, he's setting up at the wrong angle to the plate. Whatever position he takes to the plate is how he delivers the pitch, and it leads to a lot of pitches outside the zone since he's not quite perpendicular. He needs to set up with his left shoulder straight in line to the plate and he'd get more in the zone. I'm sure Strom will let him know.

If we trade for this guy as our big acquisition, I'm gonna be very disappointed in Lunhow. Do not want. Give me Thor.

I was all about the NL years ago and now I find it completely awful. So glad we switched.

This gave me the hilarious visual of it landing on him, him collapsing to ground screaming, and Hinch and training staff running out to him. After 5 mins of laying on the ground screaming for Daniella he gets carted off.

Wheeler would be great. He'd be a fraction of the Stroman or Thor price.
