Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.

ugh – wasted opportunity

Pujols has seemed strangely pedestrian the last two games, both against Marquis and this first AB.

He needs some Brandon Backe to get right…

PHE May 5, 2008

Rockies hitting the ball hard – Pineiro buying into the patented Dave Duncan “Let ‘em hit it” strategy.

Probably lucky to get Helton at second there before more damage.

PHE May 5, 2008

Duncan looks like he still has some kinks to work out at the plate.

PHE May 5, 2008

Hawpe follows Soriano in homering after error-prone defense.

*sigh*

PHE May 5, 2008

Nice work by Pineiro to get out of it…HR beside the fact.

PHE May 5, 2008

WOW! Larry Walker in Denver, in a Cards uniform, in their dugout? Nice!

PHE May 5, 2008

Pujols again looks average.

I wonder if he’s chasing, frustration setting in.

PHE May 5, 2008

That’s why the PITCHER HITS EIGHTH

Nice work Joel!

PHE May 5, 2008

What a great AB by Pineiro. You get donked by a pitch you shouldn’t have been swinging at in the first place, then work it to 3-2, forcing Jiminez to throw 11 pitches in the process…

Then double down the line to help yourself. Love it when a plan comes together.

PHE May 5, 2008

Duncan is doing his best Soriano impression out there.

PHE May 5, 2008

Get him out now. Immediately.

PHE May 5, 2008

Adam-

If you weren’t so busy looking at the ball instead of running, you might have made it.

Did you play Little League ball?

Sincerely
-PHE

PHE May 5, 2008

Hot dog – Dunc does know how to use that glove.

PHE May 5, 2008

I think the Rockies have the worst local TV guys in the league.

PHE May 5, 2008

Nice job to get out of the inning by Villone.

PHE May 5, 2008

Is it just me, or is every ball “pretty well hit” at Coors Field?

PHE May 5, 2008

Can’t win ‘em all Waino.

PHE May 5, 2008

C’mon rook…rooting for Parisi.

PHE May 5, 2008

Attaway Rick.

PHE May 5, 2008

Big first outing for the rook – nice work Parisi.

PHE May 5, 2008

Lots of empty seats in Denver. Too bad.

PHE May 5, 2008

Duncan sucks tonight. What a waste.

PHE May 5, 2008

Luddy!

PHE May 5, 2008

Wow, what a terrible call.

If anyone knows whether he was safe or not, it’s Yadi. He’s been on both sides of that situation a lot.

Cards have a real beef there, IMO.

PHE May 5, 2008

Nice hit for White Goodman. If you can’t dodge a wrench, you can apparently muscle up for a 5 foot base hit.

PHE May 5, 2008

Hey Clint Hurdle – I’ll trade you the strikeout for the run that you got from Molina.

PHE May 5, 2008

Once again AP comes through when it counts and he has seen lots of pitches.

PHE May 5, 2008

Really hard to believe what is going on here. The home plate umpire Davidson has really been under fire tonight.

That said, Pujols looked like he may have actually sneaked his leg in there before the tag up high.

PHE May 5, 2008

That is exactly how Izturis should be used, and how he helps this team.

Kudos TLR.

PHE May 5, 2008

That’s a winner!

Both teams manage to put on a great show despite some moron behind the plate thinking he’s the story.
