Well, judging by the title, this should be a fun exercise, no?
Good thing: Colby Rasmus going three-for-four with a home run, double, single, a run scored and one batted in.
Bad thing: Dan and Al going on incessantly about how Rasmus “only needs a triple for the cycle” following the single to put him in such status. Ask @MatthewHLeach, this is annoying.
Good thing: Todd Wellemeyer didn’t give up ten runs and he didn’t walk a whole lineup of batters.
Bad thing: He gave up four runs (three earned) and that is enough to beat this Little League offense right now.
Bad thing: Blaine Boyer didn’t. (And McClellan walked two.)
Good thing: Joe Thurston was three-for-three.
Bad thing: Joey T is still not the answer at third base.
Good thing: The Cards were not the Mets tonight, who surrendered five runs in the eighth inning to blow a 5-0 lead against the Pirates.
Bad thing: The Cards couldn’t score five runs all game, which is all they needed to push into extra innings.
Good thing: Ryan Ludwick finally made it off of the bench tonight to pinch hit.
Bad thing: Rick Ankiel and Chris Duncan had already flailed their way to four strikeouts in seven at-bats by the time he appeared. (Does anyone else wonder why Ankiel and/or Duncan still see fastballs? Ever?)
Good thing: We get to do it all over again at 7:15p – Central time. Go Cards!
Feel free to add your own in the comments – this is fun!
