Graffanino over Gotay.....

I seriously hope our next manager will actually play the rookies instead of the veteran scrubs.

Great.

How many game threads do you phuqtards have to start before it registers?

One of my pals called me at work today. He works for a big mover & shaker company, and he scored 4 "crown seats" behind home plate for Cards/Royals on Sunday. I get to go..whoo hoo! I just hope its not to witness yet another sweep. The Royals make my brain hurt. I haven't been to a game yet this year, first time I haven't been to a game in April in a long long time.

Giving up a grand salami in the 1st against the hated Cards is classic crappy Royals. Where do I line up for my kick in the groin??

You only get your kick in the groin if you actually pay for the tickets.

It was ruled a double. Inning over. 5-3 Cards.

Great. If Graffy woulda been running we would've avoided that double play and still had the tying run at 2nd base. Like watching the Chiefs play defense.

VonneMarie
05-20-2005, 07:43 PM
Everybody should've been running with the way our pitching is pitching tonight. :banghead:

Does Graff just not like the Royals? His double play ball in the first and now his base-running screw up have cost us at least 3 runs. WTF is he doing?!?

petegz28
05-20-2005, 07:46 PM
WTF was GraffaNINI thinking???? He just cost us a run at the least! Why is Gotay not in?

petegz28
05-20-2005, 07:47 PM
Ok Burgos let's keep us in the game here buddy. Too bad Grienke had a quasi-off night.

Burgos looks to be in regular form. Gets the first 2 guys out then starts choking.

eazyb81
05-20-2005, 08:09 PM
I know hindsight is 20/20, but Burgos really needs to get some more conditioning in the minors. He is not ready for MLB right now, his control is pretty awful.

I have been saying that since they brought him up. Some on here think I am out of my mind but I share your opinion. He is close...I would bring him up in September as opposed to Arpil\May.

Awesome play by Buck.

GraffaNINI costs us another run it seems. Was it Sisco's fault or Graf's?

I think that is because you talk shit on every player and every move with the royals...

Yes we have a ball game again! Now I hav to go back to GraffaNINI not running home when the ball sailed past the catcher. GREAT baserunning by Long.

At least since Pena left our run production has improved significantly. Zack just had rough start tonight. He doesn't give up the Grand Slam to Mabry and we actually maybe win him a game.

Yeah, there's our luck in a nutshell. We finally get Zack some run support, against an ace All-Star pitcher that has always owned us no less, and we give up 7 runs....

Don't remind me. :cuss:
Damn, I wonder how good these young kids(Royals pitchers) would be if say they were in the Cardinals organization. Greinke would probably be unbeaten. :banghead:

Just said he was really intimidating. Didn't understand why the Cubs would let him go... 6'10" with high 90's stuff, has the potential to be spectacular.

I expected him to do that. Izzy's curve is nasty. You saw what he tried to do there, he throws first pitch fastball, gets ahead 0-1, then throws that nasty curve and gets you. Mike wasn't going to let him do that... it makes sense.

I guess. I think I would of made him pitch but oh well it doesn't amtter now.

It could've been worse, I was expecting a 13-1 score. A 1 run game sucks but, it's the Tardinals.

Just back from the game. Graf not getting home turned out to be big, but probably not a bad decision in general. The ball didn't look initially like it was too far from Molina (I have seats along the 3rd base line).

The guy I was ticked off at was Marrero. Not only did he ground into the double play after Graf stayed at third, he popped up in the infield with a runner on third and one out early on. This guy totally killed us tonight. Batting a crisp .170. Yeah.

I was thinkin the same watching from home.
Lots of STL folks made the trip....Looks half Red there.

Cards have way to much talent to not sweep. Every Cardinal should be padding their batting avg. this weekend.

Former Cardinal for sure.

I'd put that useless tit on the reverse "Freedom Fotilla" and send him back to Cuba.
