2009 Cardinals Game Notes

As mentioned in the previous post, this game was joined in progress at PH8 headquarters. Following the score via the MLB At Bat app on the phone showed a rough first inning for otherwise solid Cards starter Joel Pineiro, surrendering a three-run blast to Brewers rookie CaseyMcGehee before settling in to finish seven innings. Making [...]

In another game that many would argue the 2008 Cardinals didn’t have a chance in, the 2009 Redbirds emerge victorious to win another series against the Dodgers, their fifth win this season in the seventh and final regular season matchup with the NL West leaders. Notes Adam Wainwright was brilliant early, then seemed as if [...]

Better late than never, right?  C’mon Cards, let’s put up some runs and get the sweep! Live Blog – Cards vs Padres

Matt Capps should be thankful that Albert Pujols cannot throw a 100 mph fastball.  Or that he would likely never bat versus the Cardinals in a situation to be hit anyway.  Or that Albert just didn’t feel like maiming a guy who could arguably be laughed at for calling himself a closer in the first [...]

Chris Carpenter wasn’t his sharpest. Albert Pujols continued to smack the ball around the park, but didn’t deliver the big blows. The Cardinals put together six runs (it’s a serious number) against Pirates’ pitching, and moved one game ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Matt Holliday continued to rake, Mark DeRosa has [...]

Trying to overcome nine walks from your pitching staff in one game is pretty difficult, yet there the Cardinals were, with the bases loaded and Yadier Molina at the plate. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. As Brewers beat-man Tom Haudricourt Twittered during the game: Brewers-Cards, 4-4 in the 8th. If Brewers win, they pull [...]

Wa-hey!  That’s a winner! After another frustrating night on offense from the Cardinals (don’t know about you, but I find it virtually impossible to tell anymore if the Cardinal lineup is that bad, or if we are just seeing great pitching each night – let’s call it both), the Cards finally were able to make [...]

Another day in New York, more of the same. What is there to be said about this game?  The Cardinals apparently can’t handle the motivation (they can stick the pressure) of facing a former Cy Young winner. Last time it was Cliff Lee doing damage versus the Cardinal lineup, and today, save for a couple [...]

I’m trying to get myself into a regular habit of writing again, so I decided yesterday (with credit due to a lot of other blogs that do this and inspired me a bit) to start writing quick game recaps – just a few things from each day’s post-game thoughts. Unfortunately, I picked a bad day [...]
