Chris Perez

Well, since I’m seemingly the last one to jump on the bandwagon with publicizing this, I thought I’d catch up to the pack. The Cards have recently been using a motorized cooler, courtesy of senior bullpen member Jason Isringhausen to get their ice and beverages back and forth from the clubhouse to the ‘pen. Kyle [...]

If you read this site with any regularity, you know that I’ve fairly staunchly defended Mike Parisi and his performance up until yesterday. He performed well enough as a reliever prior to yesterday’s loss that he had really, in my opinion, earned the right to be with the big-league club in the long relief role. [...]

…then you haven’t seen anything yet! So apparently, just to spite me and my post from last night, lambasting the amount of walks surrendered by the Cards’ bullpen this season, Chris Perez went out this afternoon and one-upped me. Yes Chris, you have proven your point. Giving up a walk is not the worst thing [...]

Ok, who can come up with the most jokes quickest here? “Any Major League ballpark?” “Any field that has dirt?” “Everywhere?” As I was watching the Cardinals’ blow another good start by Braden Looper, this time with Kyle McClellan the culprit, I was thinking about what the major downfall of this year’s bullpen has been. [...]

Play a hard … six??

Tonight’s game was hard to stomach.  The Cards produced some early runs with more clutch hitting, a nice 2-out stroke in the first inning by Ryan Ludwick hopefully to get him back on track (he finished two for three, with two RBI).  Luddy again struck with a sac fly in the 3rd. Adam Wainwright was [...]

Are we really going to go through the Kelvin Jimenez experiment again? This guy has proven himself a poor man’s Anthony Reyes during his short stints in the big leagues (that’s not a compliment). Where is Mark Worrell? What about Jason Motte? Mike Parisi and Kyle McClellan are both starters that are on the big [...]

Anti-Izzy part Two

by on May 18, 2008 · 2 comments

Skip Schumaker has ex-OR-cised the demons!  Chris Perez had another solid outing, only needing 5 pitches to get through the top of the ninth and earn his first big-league win. What a great weekend for the Cardinals and their fans.  Stan Musial, all-time Cardinal great, was honored today with Stan Musial Day, they unveiled a [...]

I have a tendency to be a bit of an optimist when it comes to things like this, and only the highest-paid psychologists could really understand what goes on in a professional athlete’s mind. But could yesterday’s 10-inning, walk-off home run win against the Rays be what turns this team back around? Could this convince [...]

The Cardinals made the expected move today, sending one-time closer Jason Isringhausen to a DL stint, and calling up Chris Perez from AAA Memphis. One can only wonder if this is the end of Izzy’s rope, with this being the final year of his contract. Godspeed Izzy. Get your arm worked out and get back [...]
