What Just Happened?

June 19, 2008

Am I actually seeing this or is this just a horrible nightmare…..someone please tell me its the later.

I mean, I knew albert meant a lot to this team especially offensively, but I did not know that they would struggle this badly to score runs.

what’s it now? on 18 runs scored in the last 7 games? that comes out to be 2.57 runs a game and that is simply not good enough.

I personally thought the starters will be the first to be bomb; I actually thought that the bullpen was one of the strongest parts of this team, but lately all the bullpen pitchers have gotten roughed up; today it was perez giving up the finishing touch to teahen in the form of a two run homer.

the worst thing about the bullpen have been the lefties. tony has two lefties and he uses them a lot because he loves his matchups. the problem is both of them have become horrible; they can’t get righties or lefties out.

so the number one priority for MO is to get a lefty reliever that can pitch to both righties and lefties and be especially tough on the lefties.

some people say that he shouldn’t use the lefties. well, if that’s the case, why have them in the bullpen in the first place if you are not going to use them?

all in all, I’m really not too happy right now after getting swept by the ROYALs at HOME. it doesn’t get any easier either.

next up, a 9 game road trip from hell! if the cardinals can make it out of this road trip and stay to 5 games behind the division leading cubs and stay around the top of the wildcard race, I will be very happy.

first, they head up to boston to for a rematch of the 2004 world series with the red sox. they need to pick up one win there, if they are lucky; what did you expect? they just got swept by the freakin’ royals!

then, it does not get easier; rematch of the 2006 world series, the get to play the surging tigers who have one of the best lineups in baseball. I’ll take a win here.

then, they will got into KC and hopefully  generate some offense and get two out of three to come home with a 4-5 road trip; that sounds pretty good to me because of the way this team is playing right now.
