Didn't see much of this one, too late for me.

Cards pick up the W 5-2.

Grichuk & Pham carry the offense, Wacha with 6 innings of 1-run ball.

Watched far too much of this game, but Pham with another big night. An RBI double and a heads up play to take second on a fly ball to center.

Unfortunately took 3 pitchers to get through the 9th, but that was about the only downside of the game.

Looking forward to seeing how the "kids"/call ups do this weekend.

I know they're on the west coast, but I'm surprised we haven't gotten a release or anything like that telling us who the callups are yet. We know Flaherty. Alcantara was told he was coming up. Sierra is expected. There was some rumors about O'Neill because he was showing on the 40 man roster, but asterisked out as not on the 40 man (I also don't think he will be up if at all until Memphis' season is over).

And as I say that...

Flaherty, Alcantara, Rosario, Mejia, and Bader up.

Gilmartin outrighted off the 40 man to make room for Rosario.

Not really sure why we need another catcher when the backup one we have doesn't get to play as it is.

Hope Sierra gets here. IMO he's the position player with the most potential part-time impact.

Same. I feel like Matheny did a good job using Kozma late in games as a pinch runner when he was on the roster and not starting. Sierra could fill those same shoes. So could Bader, honestly though.

Could be they give Sierra a chance to play in Memphis for a bit before bringing him up.

Would have rather seen Sierra than Bader called up for sure. I don't see any PT for Bader unless we are totally out of it.
