Cardinals - Activated Pulse
St. Louis Cardinals - Activated P Bill Pulsipher from the 15-day DL; recalled P Brad Thompson; optioned P Carmen Cali and P Jimmy Journell to Memphis.
Do you know what my dream scenario is? The Cardinals acquire Paul Wilson then Wilson, Pulsipher, and Isringhausen combine to throw a perfect game against the Phillies, after which Ed Wade fires his Senior Advisor, Dallas Green. Too bad Paul Wilson sucks.
Pulsipher finally seems to be sort of healthy (this last one was a hammy rather than his usual arm trouble) and between Long Island and Tacoma, managed to pitch 127.2 innings last season. That may not sound impressive, but that’s the 2nd most innings he’s been on the field since throwing 218.1 innings as a 21-year-old (that’s even worse than it sounds considering he was a bit wild).
It’s nice to see him get back to the majors, but he’s just not a very good pitcher.
Thompson’s a good prospect and a groundball pitcher, so he should fare pretty well. I have no idea how he’s pitched this season as MLBAM’s patented minor league record- keeping system (Damnatio Memoriae Teknology©) has already wiped clean any trace of Thompson’s existence. Actually, I got a hold of someone from the team and Thompson had a 3.29 ERA, 1 HR, 7 BB, 11K in 13.2 innings for the Redbirds.
