Sunday Spitballs – 06.01.08

by on June 1, 2008 · 2 comments

I’m going to try to start writing a weekly Sunday post which just kind of highlights my thoughts throughout the weekend. Here goes:

  • Speaking of Jimenez, can anyone tell me how many options the Cardinals have left to exhaust on this guy? Can’t we just give up on him now?
  • Congrats Joe Mather on your first big-league hit and RBI, Friday night. Joey Bombs has also excelled in the field, making a couple of great plays in the right field corner Friday night.
  • CP63 gave up his first big-league earned run today. So what. Keep throwing the 97 mph heat, Chris!
  • Rick Ankiel is making a lot of people forget/care less about Jim Edmonds playing for the Cubs. Ank’s catch today in center field was what many would call “classic Edmonds” – but it’s quickly becoming “classic Ankiel”.
  • Chris Duncan was 0 for 4 in his first start with Memphis Saturday night. I’ll reserve judgment on Dunc until he gets a week’s worth or so in at AAA.
  • Saturday’s game sucked. The result sucked. The pitching sucked. The weather sucked. BUT, the Cards still have taken two games in this series from the (suddenly thorn-in-the-side) Pirates. If these guys can win two games in most of their series from here out, this will be a magical season for the Redbirds.
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.
