Cardinals at Pirates, Game 136 Thread


Alright, so I entirely forgot to do this post earlier, and I’m in the middle of another project, so you guys get a very abridged version. Here are the important points for today’s game:

The Pirates have been killing the Cardinals. It needs to stop.

Joe Kelly, yet again, has to play the Cardinals’ stopper. In a mere 5 days, Kelly has climbed my personal power rankings from the other other ace, to the sole ace in the month of August. After disappointing outings from Wainwright, Miller, and Lynn, the Cardinals desperately need a good start and a win against Pittsburgh. If they pull one out, they’ll remain in a tie for first place.

The Pirates are starting left-hander Kris Johnson. He’s 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in one Major League appearance.

Finally, Justin Morneau will take the field for the Pirates. Let’s hope he doesn’t do anything.

Go Cardinals! Leave your comments below.

  • Ovadia

    Another run! Great start, Cards!!

  • Ovadia

    Sac fly. It’s better than nothing!

  • Ovadia

    C’mon, Pete. It’s time to snap out of your slump.

  • Ovadia

    Another wild pitch! Keep them coming, Johnson:)

  • Ovadia

    A much better start than the past few nights, that’s for sure. Let’s hope Kelly can hold on to the lead-chances are he will.

  • Ovadia

    Yea, Robinson!

  • Ovadia

    McCutcheon is 1-8 against Kelly :)

  • Ovadia

    Two outs, one to go….

  • Ovadia

    Done. Good

  • Thomas Demerath

    that was a big out

  • Thomas Demerath

    Happy Labor Day weekend guys!

  • Ovadia

    Has anybody else noticed that Shane Robinson is Matt Holliday’s mini-me?

    • Thomas Demerath

      good call. my buddy called that earlier this season, and i borrowed it from him and used it in a piece. it is a striking resemblance

      • Ovadia

        The only difference is that Robinson is about a foot shorter.

        • Thomas Demerath

          about 80 pounds lighter

  • Ovadia

    Let’s go Carpenter!

  • Ovadia

    This inning is going by too quickly.

  • Ovadia

    Joe is having yet another good outing.

  • Ovadia

    First base runner allowed since the first inning:(

  • Ovadia

    Calm yourself, Kelly; just one more out

  • Ovadia

    I’m sad to see Blazek go, but I’m really excited to see how Axford is going to perform after his perfect inning last night.

  • Ovadia

    “Real Cardinals fans love real roast beef”. It doesn’t get much better than radio ads.

  • Ovadia

    That was a nice play! Craig makes it look so easy to be so good.

  • Ovadia

    It’s always entertaining to watch pitchers swing the bat.

  • Ovadia

    There ya go, Kelly!

  • Ovadia

    Time for another huge Holliday homerun!

  • Ovadia

    A single works. Two more runs.

  • Ovadia

    Not a bad inning. I would love if the Pirates remained scoreless today.

  • Ovadia

    I don’t like Marlon Byrd.

  • Ovadia

    Nice catch by Robinson. We will see if Kelly is done for the day.

  • Ovadia

    Single! Another 2-out hit!

  • Ovadia

    Why Chambers? Why?

  • Ovadia

    Alright! Time for Maness to do what he does best: dominate.

  • Ovadia

    Strikeout #90 for Rosenthal!

  • Ovadia

    Joe Kelly definitely deserves the player of the game. This-God willing- will be win #7.

  • Ovadia

    I am so glad Mo traded Cox for Mujica-he has been outstanding this year! I would not be upset if Mo decides to hold on to him.

  • Ovadia

    Again, I don’t like Marlon Byrd.

  • Ovadia

    Wow. Great save by Mujica, even without getting any signs from Yadi.

  • Ovadia

    Cardinals are back in first! Thanks for joining me and have a great night. Go Cardinals!
