    Nice sweep. Matt should just stay on the DL for a while.

  4. Brian Walton says:

    Not good, blingboy. Did you see anyone suspicious there? Lincoln Memorial vandalized with green paint

      Guacamole never did agree with me, I don’t know what I was thinking.

      Having a great time. Scratched the side trip to Baltimore, didn’t want to end up on a milk carton.

      Go Birds, chop the Braves.

    Cards sent the wrong man to AAA.Rob Johnson is a catcher only.Supposedly Molina`s knee is okay so why keep 3 catchers now? Peterson `s 2 RBIs as a PH made him second on the team to Matt Adams in PH RBIs..

    • Brian Walton says:

      Maybe just knowing there is a third catcher makes Molina’s knee feel better. 😉

    • crdswmn says:

      With the five game, doubleheader series coming up next week, they need the 3rd catcher more.

      • Bw52 says:

        So Cruz catches a couple of the 5 games while Molina sits and Rob Johnson does what? Pinch hit? I can see the Cards thinking somewhat but Peterson was putting the bat on the ball.Plus he could play OF when needed.

        • crdswmn says:

          Because there is no off day between the Braves and Pirates series, they will have to call up a pitcher to start on the Tuesday double header, unless they start Waino on short rest, which I doubt. In order to make room for said pitcher, someone will have to be sent down. They can’t play a 5 game series with a short bullpen, which means a position player will have to go. I can see them starting Rob Johnson on Monday, which gives Molina a day off, and then sending him (Johnson) down on Tuesday to make room for the pitcher. Then start Molina and Cruz in the doubleheader.

          • Brian Walton says:

            crdswmn, you seem to be unfamiliar with the 26th man rule. Teams can add a 26th player for DH days only. They will bring up Lyons for that day without having to send anyone down.

            On catchers, I agree with Bw. Chances are that Molina starts 3 or even 4 of 5 in Pittsburgh. About the only game Cruz is assured of starting is one of the two DH games.

            P.S. …but I am not outraged or anything. After all, it is the 25th man…

            • crdswmn says:

              I was aware of the rule, I just forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me.

              I still don’t have a problem with keeping Johnson. With 5 games in 4 days, an injury to Molina or Cruz during that time could be a problem.

              Is it for sure they will bring up Lyons? I think it is the right move, but you never know.

            • Nutlaw says:

              It still doesn’t make much sense keeping three catchers around in my mind when Molina is one of the best in the game right now. Do you think that they might be thinking about replacing Cruz and thus want to give Johnson a longer look? In exceedingly limited play, Cruz only has a .519 OPS and I have mostly unsubstantiated suspicions about his pitch calling.

    Cards hitters stunk today.Spaghetti bats.Tehran is a good pitcher but today he pitched better than good.Pathetic hitting.Wasted a good effort by Kelly.
