Same here.† Good pitching duel today and miraculously the Cardinal pen held on to it.

Typical Pirates. They make two buzz worthy trades and get the fan base all wound up. The Cards come to town for an important series so what do they do? Lose 2 of 3 and have the Cards leapfrog them in the standings. Hell, they looked half asleep today and things are really bad when you pin your hopes on Sean Rodriquez (with a pitiful .164 average) with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th.

Yeah that struck me too.

You're down by 1 run with two outs in the bottom of the 9th and Sean Rodriguez is your guy?† I mean, he does have a history of burning St. Louis but as you say, he's hitting .164.

I would be more concerned about Archer though.† Hopefully that start Friday was just a blip before Searage can get hold of him and straighten him out.† I have a lot of respect for Ray Searage; he's a lot like the "pitcher whisperer" Dave Duncan was for the LaRussa-era Cards.† He has a way of taking guys who are struggling and turning them around.† Obviously he hadn't had much time to work with Archer before that start on Friday so hopefully that's just a glitch.

Rodriguez is half the player he used to be. His hitting and fielding have really gone downhill.

And I hope that was just a blip for Archer. I lol forward to his next start to see.

Watching the STL/FL game.

We lost 2-1 last night and are trailing 2-0 in the 7th tonight.

Typical Cardinals, make nothing pitchers look like Nolan Ryan.

AND...as I was typing that, DeJong just hit a two run shot to tie it up.† But we're still making these Marlins pitchers†look like Cy Young material.

Carpenter just hit HR 30 in the 8th.†

This guy is unbelievable.† He was hitting .140 in the middle of May and now he leads the NL in homers.

Looks like the Pirates won today.

I was watching the game against the Rockies until the local news started.† Archer looked much better than he did against STL.† And the HR he gave up happened after his life probably flashed before his eyes when DJ Lemahieu hit a screamer that just missed Archer's head so that's probably forgivable.

Yeah since it was a day game I was only able to catch the last 2 innings of that game so I missed Archer pitching. It was good to get the win. They next to to San Francisco so I probably won't be seeing to much baseball due to late games.

I hate West Coast swings!


Trust me, today†Archer looked much more like the pitcher the Pirates thought they were getting. And it was against the Rockies in their home park.† Yeah the Rockies are slumping but they are still a good offensive team so Archer's outing was impressive.

Watching the Cards vs Marlins.

STL is starting John Gant, yet another pitcher who should be at AAA but has been called up due to all the injuries to the staring staff.† So far it's 1-1 in the 4th.

Holy crap!† Carpenter hit his 31st homer in the 6th.† How HOT is that guy's bat????† I've never seen anything like this; and he was hitting .146 with 3 HR on May 15.† Now he leads the NL in HR, doubles, slugging percentage and a ton of other categories. Cardinal announcers keep saying if there was an award for "Comeback Player Of The Year" within the same year Carpenter would win hands down.

Cards ended up winning 7-1.

I can't place my finger on it but this team seems "different" since Matheny was fired and the bullpen was cleansed.† Maybe it's the combination of knowing Matheny would keep going to the same guys out of the pen, firing Matheny and then losing most of those pen guys.††

Whatever it is, STL seems much more "motivated" these days.

Watching the Cards vs Royals.† 4-0 STL so far.† STL trying to win their fifth series in a row.

Watching the Cardinals try to sweep the Royals.† They're up 5-2 going to the 9th.† Tyson Ross who STL claimed off waivers from the Padres a few days ago made a spot start in place of Luke Weaver who cut his hand on a tray.† Ross looked good going 6 and allowing 2 runs on 4 hits.

Watched STL win their 6th game in a row last night with a walkoff HR in the 9th.† Matt Carpenter also hit his 33rd homer of the year.†

I don't know if it's the new manager or gutting the bullpen or playing all the young guys or some combination of all three but this team is playing a lot better lately.
