That pretty much says it all.
Couldn't have said it better myself. --RHM
With the Cards extra-innings loss to the Royals, the Reds are now tied for first place with the aforementioned awful team (and I’m not talking about the Royals). Outside of Carpenter, the Cards starting pitching has been shit, and Pujols or no Pujols, they’ve been unable to hit lately as well.
Yes. Thank you, Braden Looper.
That three-game series against the White Sox really took a lot of wind out of the Cardinals’ sails. They were on a four-game winning streak, then they got swept by the ChiSox, losing the first two games of the series by a combined total of 22 runs. Counting those three games, they’ve now lost 9 of their last 10 games. Their only win was in Wednesday’s game against the Indians where the Tribe’s defense gift-wrapped one for ’em with two ninth-inning errors after Isringhausen collected his sixth blown save of the season in the Cleveland eighth. And, they’re 1-7 since activating Pujols from the DL.
So, Happy Birthday to Sean Casey, who turns 32 today. It’s officially July, and the Reds are tied for first place. Now do you believe me when I tell you this team is a contender?
Honestly? No. The Reds only have two starters who can be trusted and one of them is likely to fall off at least to some extent in the second half. We’ve got one decent player in the bullpen and while I trust the offense, the offense obviously can’t carry the team. Before the season, .500 would’ve made me extremely happy. At this point, I’ll be disappointed in it, and I think it’s highly likely.
In fact, [url=http://www.red-hot-mama.com/humanleague.php?id=C0_21_3]Sean Casey[/url] didn’t turn 32 until today.
You’re off your game, John.
Good catch. You’re right, of course, Casey’s birthday is July 2. My bad.
