What a horrible strike call. Wade didn't get that pitch called that was 3 inches closer to the plate.

Tough to look at our lineup, then get to the 8th spot and see two automatic outs because Stassi is so bad. NL ball is stupid.

Just killed our rally. Can't believe I ever thought this was a better way to play the game...

Ump has no idea what the zone is

I was of the mindset that it's "purer", and maybe it is, but it definitely isn't as enjoyable.

If you could pick between Martin Maldonado or Alex Avila for back up catcher, who do you go get?
Philip J Fry

We saw enough passed balls in the playoffs last week. No thanks.

Good grief this umpire is absolutely terrible. No consistency. Balls well in and well out of the zone have each been called balls and strikes. Just awful.

Where's Aaron Boone when you need him?

I still like NL ball. Stassi hitting below .200 though is inexcusable.

It really is amazing that there are so few pure hitters that are catchers.

Here in center field. 2nd row next to the lawn


About to head into the park. We've been relaxing at Cardinals Nation bar after a mad dash up the Arch earlier. Love this "part of the stadium" concept, much like SunTrust in Atlanta. MMP sorely needs something similar.

The good hitting catchers get moved to other positions to save their knees. Craig Biggio and Bryce Harper come immediately to mind

Very very mature at bat by the rookie. That slider was giving him fits but he hung in there and then said "one too many sliders dude" and went yard.

What an AB. Nice Cuban missile to end it.

If he played in Boston or NY the race would already be over

If we get that far, he plays in the final NL park. He has to.

Yeah that was very impressive. They kept throwing him down and he made the adjustment and Golfed that ball out of the park.
