This team needs a boat load of pitchers if the World Series window is the next 2 year's.

Top 5 bullpen though right?


But the eye can be deceiving. That's why we have metrics.

An atrocious inning all around. Needed more out of juiced bases last half inning.

Darn.

Ryan just couldn't find his pitch.

Well, that sucks. The bullpen is wasting great outings by the starters. Locker room may not be a pleasant place to be.

I love how Correa is catching flak when the pitcher sucked worse

He was doing fine that first batter and then lost him to a walk and then that seemed to affect his confidence.

These three run bombs that our pen is giving up lately are killer.

Calm down. 2 sub 2 eras pitchers had rare bad innings . It happens.

This is play-off level baseball. It has to be better by the pen and by the otters in those clutch situations.

Prospects at this point are useless, the future is this year and next.

Walks are bad right? Because we give them away like they are good.

Not sure who in the pen you can trust right now. They've all been shaky in recent outings.

Those are horrible angles. Surely they have one of his hands. Of course its MLB so who knows.

I wonder if Hinch gave any thought with first base open to walk Goldschmidt there? He's only the best and hottest hitter on the Cards, and it would have set up a force at home or the double play.

I doubt it

Intentional walks don't really fit with the analytical approach.

It's a free base and the numbers say most of the time you're gonna get him out.

Has AJ ever intentionally walked someone?

Went from a 75% win prob to a 94.5% lose prob between CC's AB and Goldschmidt's HR

Geez Correa. Not a good first game back so far.
sure glad he had a 2-week rehab assignment.

those things are worthless


Should he have just sat around? He wasn't eligible to come off IL until yesterday.

At least Chirinos didn't GIDP

Correa's AB was awful, but we took the lead in that half. That performance from Pressly was inexcusable. Just an abysmal outing. Cost us the game.

So...We haven't looked at the Realmuto/Chirinos comparisons yet.

Not sure we'd actually want to see that right about now.

I was a little surprised when they said Chirinos had a 5 game hit streak.

I f-cking hate the Cardinals

Chirinos has been a better offensive catcher that Realmuto by a fairly sizeable margin.

Realmuto isn't a big upgrade. Despite our lackluster night, the only weak hitter in our lineup is at Catcher.

Everywhere else is stacked

He's not as weak offensively as you think. Sure he's been not as good lately but he has a 118 wRC+(18% better than the average player) on the season.

12 HR, 30 R, 30 RBI, wRC+ 94, fWAR 2.8
12 HR, 42 R, 42 RBI, wRC+ 118, fWAR 1.4

The fWAR difference is 100% from dWAR.
