Viva Chris Perez

by on August 6, 2008 · 0 comments

First big-league save tonight for Chris Perez!

This was a big one for the Cards, and it was even of the multiple inning variety (1 2/3)!

Perez bailed out the bullpen after a marvelous seven inning start by Joel Pineiro.  My boy Brad Thompson was ineffective in one-third of an inning, proving I should never try to prop up anyone in this bullpen (oops, sorry Chris).

Here’s hoping Tony has turned the page on Jason Isringhausen and Ryan Franklin.  I’m hoping his kid is going to prove that he deserved a shot a long time ago.

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.
