Re: Game 99: Rockies @ Cardinals, 7/24/17, 7:08 pm

I'd like to point out that Tommy Pham is tied for the team lead at 14 home runs this season and Randal Grichuk has 13. Both spent a month in Memphis.

DeJong has 12 and spent the better part of two months there too.

Grichuk now has HRs in 4 straight games since returning from the DL.

Re: Game 99: Rockies @ Cardinals, 7/24/17, 7:08 pm

But wait, it gets worse! I got "well actually"'d about OPS on Twitter and so I looked up a more hip stat.

Molina has the lowest wRC+ of any Cardinals position player on the 25 man roster except Carson Kelly, who has been up like four days now.

Re: Game 98: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/23/17, 7:08 pm

My biggest problem with Matheny's bullpen management has been that he plugs the same struggling guys in there time after time. If he has a problem late in a close game, he's going to go with one of his three main guys regardless of how those guys have been pitching lately. This year I think you can ...

CF Dexter Fowler

Molina has the lowest OPS (.709) of any Cardinal in tonight's lineup. Bats 5th.

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals Rumors Thread

Also his defensive numbers are pretty strange. 214.2 innings at SS, +3 DRS, 1.6 UZR. 158 innings at 2B, -1 DRS, -0.6 UZR. So he is a positive defender at SS but negative at 2B in somewhat similar sample sizes, although both are very small. I see his numbers at 2B being an inexperience issue. 177 st...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals Rumors Thread

DeJong, has the third best OPS, among NL Shortstops. Only Cozart amd Belanger have higher percentages.... And Diaz was #1 among MLB SS with as many PA as he had last year with the 2nd best OPS+ I'm enjoying his nice run but am not making him the SS of the future yet. Was burned just last year with ...

Re: Game 98: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/23/17, 7:08 pm

The Cardinals finished their 10-game road trip with only four wins despite leading in nine of the games. Ugly. This team can't hold a lead. Cards are 21-19 since they shuffled up the coaching staff (amazingly, still in 4th place 4.5 games behind). And five of those wins were against the Phillies. I...

Re: Game 97: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/22/17, 3:05 pm

It didn't help sending Wainwright out in the 8th to get into trouble. Bowman got blooped. Baseball happens. But Cecil, well, lefties were slugging .523 off of him this season before that AB. And Rizzo was slugging .598 off LHP this year. And Cecil continues to be among the worst at stranding inherit...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals Rumors Thread

Before today's games, DeJong was tied for 10th of 39 shortstops with +2 defensive runs saved among those with at least 190 innings at the position this season. For reference, Diaz is 38th of 39 with -9 defensive runs saved. Only one worse is Asdrubal Cabrera who the Mets just moved to second. Diaz i...

Cards sent 11 batters to the plate in the top of the 8th before the Cubs recorded their first out.

Gyorko walked twice. In that inning. LOL.

Re: Game 96: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/21/17, 1:20 pm

And Grichuk with the solo shot to put the Cardinals on the board.

Pham doubles off the wall so hard he almost gets thrown out at second... :lol: Fowler then doubles to drive him in (My favorite way to score).

2-2 in the 3rd.

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

I also have to think another move is coming to clear up the OF logjam. The next 10 days will be interesting. Yeah. Fowler and Piscotty locked up. Pham hitting. Grichuk there. And Bader, Garcia, Martini, Arozarena, Sierra, Mercado and now O'Neill in just the top two levels of the minors. Got Plummer...
