"Official" 2011 St. Louis Cardinals Thread

This is so unreal. We were dead. No hope. A season over. Somehow, someway we find some team chemistry and squeak into the playoffs on the last day of the season.

Only to find us facing one of the best pitching staffs assembled in years with home field advantage. We somehow, someway find a way to beat the best pitcher in baseball on the road in an elimination game.

We have to go on the road and beat the team with the best home record in baseball. A team who mortgaged their future to make this run .We somehow, someway find a way to beat them on the road and make our 18th World series trip.

We take game 1, we give away game 2 and home field advantage. Albert goes off for probably the best performance in World Series history and we take game 3 easily. Games 4 & 5 our bats fall asleep, Phone gate happens and its not looking too good.

Game 6, one of the best baseball games of all time and it takes place in a season ending go home game. Cardinals are down 2 runs in their final chance on the season, twice. They are down to their final strike of the season, twice. They give up a 2 run homer in extra innings. In the bottom of the inning their final 3 batters are a combined 3-26 in the Playoffs and a pitcher because the bench is empty. Somehow, someway they get some runners on and the comeback player of the year drives in the tying run. Mr. Freese hits the walk off home run. We will see you tommorrow night.

Game 7, With our bulldog on the mound pitching on 3 days rest he is able to give us 6 good innings and get us to within 9 outs of our 11 World series title. Texas meltsdown, probably left over from last nights game and its over.

The underdog, come back team who had no business even being in the playoffs wins a World championship. They make movies about events like this in life. Events that you remember even if your not a fan of the sport or team for the rest of your life.

When it is your team.......Priceless

I guess Boggs doesn't kiss LaDoucha's ass sufficiently.

He is going out of his way to get Craig in the lineup.

He is batting Rasmus against leftys.

Yesterdays line up was an example of his change, no matter how small that change.... 8 players out of 10 products of the farm system. Not all grizzled washed up veterans.
Franklin blew at least 5 games. That destroyed part of the season.

Boggs has allowed 6 runs in his last 7 innings and been scored on 4 of his last 6 appearences after a nice stretch of games. It's not like he was lighting things up. The pen is just a complete joke at this point.

He's playing Descalso because Skip and Freese are hurt - we saw his usage pattern prior to that. Ditto Craig. If he had any faith in either of those kids, they wouldn't be emergency injury contingency plans.

He's batting Rasmus against lefties because he has precisely nobody else on the team that can play CF that isn't even worse against lefties than he is (i.e. Jon Jay). Don't you remember the attempts at making Tyler Greene play CF this spring? Had Greene shown any ability to track fly balls, Rasmus would be in a platoon right now.

If Boggs were a 35 yr old with a couple nice seasons on his resume, he'd be a 'core' reliever for this squad. Because he's a young guy, he's always 1 bad week from getting buried and demoted on a LaRussa team.

Maybe the fact that LaRussa is keeping 13 MFing pitchers on the roster, including 2 guys he will only use in mopups, has something to do with it.

How many relievers thrive getting one inning every 3/4 days or so? LaRussa has dicked this pen up so badly that none of them can get in a rhythm at all. When he was pitching every 2 or 3 days, he was nails. Then LaRussa uses 1 batting outing as an excuse to bury the kid and suddenly he's not quite as sharp when he's getting 2 apperances/wk. Shocker, eh?

Oh yeah, and he also still throws in the mid 90s and in his 'horrid' last 10 games has 6 strikeouts to only 1 walk.

He's unquestionably a better option than Ryan Franklin or Batista, but he doesn't have enough grey in his temple yet. He has the stuff, the command and the poise to retire major league hitters yet he's getting dumped in favor of dusty old shits like Batista and Franklin. Guys who's sole qualification is the fact that they're at/near 40 years old. It's horseshit.

Your team ERA should drop a lot over this next series, FWIW.

It's not surprising at all. He's struggled a bit, so he got sent down.

Eck, Rick Honeycutt, and Orosco could call Tony tonight asking to return to the big leagues and they'd all be on the roster tomorrow

5 games out of 162 doesn't destroy a season.

So, if the Cardinals finish four games out of first, can I blame Franklin?

You can blame Franklin if the Cardinals finish 20 games out of first if it makes you feel better. Still wouldn't get them into the playoffs though, so why bother?
