Games like this happen for every team.

Shame for it to happen to Hudson though as he'd been pitching well for most of this month.

Not just talking about this game. It's a bad team. Worst offensive month for the franchise since 2001.

Who knows how the rest of the season will go but if the team starts to go on a run in the 2nd half of the season, we may look back at Edman's home run in last night's game as the turning point in the season.

Cardinals make a series of moves. Carpenter activated off DL with Molina heading to the DL. They've purchased the contract of Chasen Shreve from Memphis and will also call up Andrew Knizner. They've also sent Tyler Webb and Rangel Ravelo back down to Memphis.

We shall see if Knizer is ready. Hope so. Carp will no doubt be inserted right back in at 3b replacing Edmon/Munoz both of whom are better options. If the Cardinals don't make a trade before the deadline, they have no shot. I fully expect the Cubs to start to pull away. All season the mantra has been how poorly weve played yet are still just 2-3-4 games out of first place..But at that same time we also have been 2-3-4 out of last place. I actually think we have a way better chance at last place than first place.
Thanks J.J. for what I consider sound advice!

I don’t want the Cardinals to trade any of their top level prospects. Not for 77 games of a player. Those moves rarely make sense and rarely end up positive.

Most of the talk I've seen online have them interested in players, especially starting pitchers, that are controllable after this season. Couple names I saw mentioned include Zach Wheeler and Trevor Bauer.

Kolten Wong strikes out with the bases loaded again. Please trade him now... He hasn't improved his hitting since getting to the major leagues and he isn't going to. .245 hitter who is not clutch, he doesn't cut the mustard. :zsurr :help
I do my best thinking on the bus. That's how come I don't drive. I don't want to know how. I don't want to learn. See? The more you drive, the less intelligent you are.

I'll take .240...250 from a gold glove calibur 2b all day, If the rest of the lineup is producing at acceptable levels. But thats not happening which makes Wong look worse to some. Take a good look at the production coming from the corner infield spots, or ss, or cf, or c. There is your problem

Bauer would be a good move depending on the cost. Wheeler would be beyond dumb. He can not stay healthy

Trade Deadline Offers Test of Cardinals' Direction as Pressure Intensifies
https://www.stltoday.com/sports/basebal ... 82841.html

"....Mozeliak, general manager Michael Girsch, and their staff of analysts and scouts have discussions about that dilemma scheduled for Monday, nine days before the deadline. They are in a vise of their own making — fewer prospects to move, a relatively fixed roster, underperforming or injured stars, and subpar results in the standings. Once again, they are a muddle in the middle."

Well the 10th inning of that game tonight was quite a thing to see.

And I hope that the next couple of games are blowouts for either side just so that way Carlos can get a couple days rest.

I think I heard last night that the last 5 starts by Cardinal starters have yielded a combined 21 innings. An average of just above 4 innings per starter.

Cardinals Should Add Starter, Many Intriguing Options
https://www.stltoday.com/sports/columns ... _incognito

Ben Fredrickson:
Zack Wheeler-pass
Trevor Bauer-Cleveland contending for wild card; not likely to move
Madison Bumgarner-Giants in wild card hunt; one-year rental?
Matthew Boyd-Tigers would ask high price
Zack Greineke-Cardinals on his no-trade list
Mike Minor-innings-eater; price could be right
Marcus Stroman-Toronto terrible, should be on the move; groundball pitcher; Cards willing to part with prospects?

Derrick Goold tweeted out earlier tonight that Goldschmidt was the first right handed hitter to have their HR splash in the Allegheny.
