The Giants are so banged up and they are short a few players.... right now, Logan Webb, Joc, Doval, and Thairo Estrada are the only people playing at a major league level. Can't wait for the all star break to get healthy!
Have dropped 12 of their last 16. Brutal
Red Sox are about to get three of their best pitchers back (Sale, Eovaldi, Whitlock), so that will hopefully get the steady wins going again for the Yankees chase!
Sale didn't appear to be happy with his rehab start. LOL what a child

That thing that was once mounted on the wall of the Worcester clubhouse didn't appeal to Sale's aesthetics. He was just taking full advantage of his visit to the farm... laying down some feng shui law... you know, for the kids.

Ho hum...both New York teams won again tonight.
We win. We always win. Is there no one on this planet to even challenge us?

My Cardinals have a lot of shiny objects on the billboard and rely on a clappy happy fanbase to pat each other on the back, but they are not serious contenders. Keep the 3 million + fans interested until October and they'll show up. Heck, they averaged 42,000 for the final weekend year before last after they were eliminated.

They have a car salesman heading operations, they control the message and it's full of the novelty: Yadi or Albert pitching an inning or 4 back to back homers or Arenado for the cycle, especially prominent after a Cardinal loss. Spend money for the greatest of corners, Goldschmidt and Arenado, feature Pujols, Molina and Wainwright, yet fill the rest of the roster shuttling hope from AAA, most of which are busts. They have a potential World Series
lineup when healthy, but a pitching staff like the Pirates. Their favorite players are the $650,000 ones under team control.

Cardinals aren't going anywhere, just wasting good talent with John Mozeliak calling the shots. Keep the people clapping, then start talking about next year.

That's unfortunate. Owing to many great players, I have always liked the Cards despite some epic October battles against the Giants. I just hate when teams do this... Angelos does it with the Os and whoever's running the Rockies does it too. Like the inverse of the A's, Rays, other 'moneyball' clubs... take the most amount of money and put together a barely passable, if not terrible, club.

it is both sad and frustrating as a lifelong Cardinals fan to see such fan support, such loyalty, duped by a tight (or laughingly brilliant) owner. DeWitt is not naive, he knows exactly what he's doing with a con man running the organization.

Of course, while Cardinal fans are gullible and, at best, patient, they won't put up with a terrible club. And the Cardinals are not terrible by any stretch. They have excellent pieces, maybe the best defense in baseball, good speed, good power. On the other hand, their #1 and #2 starters (Mikolis and Wainwright) would be a #3 and #5 on a serious club. They use kids and scraps from the junk heap to fill in their rotation, ending up riding any good relievers straight to the rock pile. They look for "innings eaters" to start games, not proven winners. Gotta save that spot for the distracted Jack Flaherty, in case he ever pitches again.

But, but, but, Yadi and Waino are setting the all-time record for pitcher-catcher starts. Great, except Cards are in a rut and Yadi is home in Puerto Rico 'resting.' Love 'em both, by the way, but this season isn't about contending.

If Kansas City gets same relievers, the AL is going to have some competition. Great offense against the Stros.
