Cake meet icing. Sox up 6-0 on a Renfroe homer.

Now they just need to consolidate this by hopefully winning a few on the trot and sealing the deal.

Ohtani does the Rickey Henderson thing. Infield single, steals second, goes to third on the bad throw, and scores his 100th run of the season.

The game should be 4-2 right now in the bottom of the 9th (Cardinals losing) but thinks to Bader sucking ass tonight on gimme chances, it's 4-0 right now.
   105. cardsfanboy Posted: September 29, 2021 at 10:36 PM (#6042483)
streak is over. Standing ovation for the team.

An update on the Congressional Baseball Game mentioned in #95 - The GOP won 13-11, and $1.2M was raised for charity. The key to game was likely President’s Biden’s selection of former Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), who had dominated the game for a decade, for a White House staff position, making him ineligible this year. However, there may be a new star - Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) hit an actual HR, reportedly the first in more than a decade. More at link.
   107. The Honorable Ardo Posted: September 29, 2021 at 11:40 PM (#6042491)
17 in a row ain't bad, plus the Cards have four games of "fall training" as they prepare for next Wednesday night.
   108. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 29, 2021 at 11:55 PM (#6042493)
Typo in #106, final score was 13-12.

I demand an audit!!!

Cardinals finally score a run after being shut out for 10 innings by the Brewers.

With Happ on the bump one may be enough!
   114. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 02:04 PM (#6042566)

OK, I was wrong.

Dylan Carlson's 17th home run of the year puts him into a six-way tie for seventh place on the all-time Cardinals rookie-season home run list.

Six of the top 12 on the Cardinals rookie homer list were active in 2021: Carlson, Albert Pujols (34 in 2001), Paul DeJong (25 in 2017), Aledmys Diaz (17 in 2016), Randal Grichuk (17 in 2015), and Matt Adams (17 in 2013).

No. 3 on the list, Chris Duncan (22 in 2006) passed away two years ago this month after a battle with brain cancer.

Interestingly, he's 10th among MLB rookies in 2021, with three ex-Cardinals (Patrick Wisdom, Adolis Garcia, and Randy Arozarena) ahead of him. Not just three players from the Cardinals organization---all three actually played with the Cardinals.
   116. Hombre Brotani Posted: September 30, 2021 at 02:15 PM (#6042573)
Ohtani with a first inning triple, now leading the AL in triples.
   117. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 02:58 PM (#6042577)
Dylan Carlson's 18th home run of the year puts him into a tie for sixth place, with Ken Boyer (1955), on the all-time Cardinals rookie-season home run list, and also gives the Cardinals the lead against the Brewers, 4-3 in the 6th inning.

Next up: 5th place (Johnny Mize, 19 in 1936).
   118. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 03:01 PM (#6042578)
Cardinals outfielders have 24 homers in 29 September games.
   119. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 03:04 PM (#6042579)
J.A. Happ pitching into the seventh inning for the first time as a Cardinal.
   120. cardsfanboy Posted: September 30, 2021 at 03:19 PM (#6042582)
Cardinals outfielders have 24 homers in 29 September games


Cardinals have a decent chance of setting the NL record by a team for a month. I think it's 57 by the 2020 Dodgers. Cardinals are at 52.
   121. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 03:32 PM (#6042586)
More than a quarter (26.8%) of the Cardinals 2021 homers have come this month...

EDIT: I guess that's not so amazing because a month is about 1/6 of a season so a normal distribution would be 16.7%, and 26.7% doesn't seem *that* out of line.
   122. cardsfanboy Posted: September 30, 2021 at 03:57 PM (#6042594)
Cardinals new winning streak has started.
   123. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 03:59 PM (#6042596)
Nice effort, Cards beat the Brewers for their 18th win in 19 games. They picked up 5-1/2 games on the Brewers since play began a week ago Monday.
   124. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 04:02 PM (#6042598)
J.A. Happ and Jon Lester are now a combined 9-3 for the Cardinals, and the team is 14-8 in games they've started. Much, much better than I imagined when those trades went down.
   125. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 30, 2021 at 04:03 PM (#6042599)
Frank Thomas has purchased the Field of Dreams. I fear he intends to use it for the production of a corn-based testosterone supplement, capitalizing on the “If you build it, they will come” theme.
   126. Hombre Brotani Posted: September 30, 2021 at 04:26 PM (#6042606)
... capitalizing on the “If you build it, they will come” theme.
Between this purchase and his Nugenix commercials, Frank's got all the angles covered.
   127. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 30, 2021 at 07:38 PM (#6042637)
Aaron Judge gaveled a l-o-n-g 1st inning solo HR (455 feet). Pretty sure it will take more than that to win the game.
   128. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 30, 2021 at 08:07 PM (#6042642)
Ryan Mouncastle’s 3-run HR puts the Orioles up 3-1 over Boston. BIG, if it holds up. Recent call-up Tyler Nevin - son of the Yankees 3rd base coach - led off the inning with a BB.
   129. Bret Sabermatrician Posted: September 30, 2021 at 08:14 PM (#6042643)
Jerome Jurenovich was on the Braves broadcast for a retirement celebration.

"This is Jerome Jurenovich, Headline Sports" is seared into my mind from my youth.
   130. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 08:28 PM (#6042647)
Who the hell is Alejandro Kirk? Was he the 1st round pick of the Middle Earth Hobbits?
   131. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 30, 2021 at 08:52 PM (#6042652)
oh, Sox now down 5-1 to the mighty Orioles. This is not going well. I think you'd find with most rational Sox fans if you'd told them they'd be around 90 wins this season, most would have been pleased with that. Difficult to watch them losing at this stage, but it's been a pretty good season so far.
   132. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 30, 2021 at 08:55 PM (#6042654)
To probably make it sting a bit more, those last 2 Orioles runs were courtesy of a 2-run single by Tyler Nevin, son of Yankees 3rd base coach Phil Nevin.

EDIT: Can’t type fast enough, now 6-1, Orioles.
   133. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 08:59 PM (#6042657)
If the Red Sucks homer 4 times and win the game, I am going to be so disappointed. Go Orioles!!!!
And get your crap together, Bronx Bombers!
   134. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:00 PM (#6042658)
With the Sox losing this game(down 6-1), I would usually think, ok go Angels and Yankees, which would help the Sox the most as far as making the WC game, but I don't really want them to back into it. That's half-arsed. So if the Sox fail miserably, I'm pulling for the Jays/Seattle WC game
   135. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:03 PM (#6042660)
Thank you, Anthony.
   136. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:04 PM (#6042661)
Rizzo HR (# 21 of season, # 250 of career) ties it 2-2!

EDIT: Followed by another Aaron Judge HR. Michael Kay says Judge is “laying down the law”.
   137. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:05 PM (#6042662)
Thank you, Aaron.

And very funny homerun ball hunting, some epic losers out there in centerfield!

Thank you, Gleyber.
   140. The Yankee Clapper Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:10 PM (#6042666)
Stanton BB & Gleyber Torres HR make it 5-2, while also taking some of the polish off Ryu’s Cy Young candidacy.
   141. salvomania Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:11 PM (#6042667)
Not a great showing for the so-called frontrunner for the Cy Young Award.
   142. sunday silence (again) Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:14 PM (#6042668)
why did he leave Robbie Ray out there? Back to back HRs should be a no brainer. at least by the 6th inn
   143. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:15 PM (#6042670)

   146. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:28 PM (#6042683)
Orioles blowing the lead yet?


Nope, just allowing the Red Sox a baserunner seemingly every inning so they can go GIDP for like the 14th time in this series.
   147. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:36 PM (#6042688)
Severino in for a fun ride now, in the bottom of the seventh. Let's see.
   148. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 09:42 PM (#6042690)

Reading an article by Keith Law and him selecting potential winners of the awards at the end of the season, reminds me that although he is a great writer, and even better at promoting the quality of prospects, he's still an ass. The article basically says "I lean heavily into war, but when it comes to roy, I get that there is playing time issues among the candidates so it's more subjective." Which I fully get, that makes sense... but then he goes if anyone votes for India or Trevor Rogers, they are wrong.


And he even mentions Edmundo Sosa as a potential down ballot guy, and I'm like "India has 3.7 war in 622 pa, Sosa has 3.3 war in 318 pa"... there is literally no doubt who has been the better player if you are basing it upon war. (waa is 2.2 for Sosa, 1.6 for India)

Mind you, I get the intent of his argument, but when you start the article with you look at this, but you adjust for this, and then you end up with the conclusion that only two people deserve top two votes, it feels like a bait and switch.

I'm a Cardinal fan, and if I had a vote just on the Cardinals, I go Carlson ahead of Sosa, simply because I'm a sucker for games played. (The article states there is a cluster of players around 2 war... and I'm thinking Sosa at 3.3 war is added to that list for what reason?-- fwar is just 1.8 so that might be it)
   154. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 10:06 PM (#6042699)
Wow, Severino and Green working hard. I like it.

And the Brave magic number is...zero!

When Acuna was injured in early July, the Braves were sitting at an 8% chance to make the playoffs and looked dead in the water. Pretty proud of this team for turning it around and - though it might not the best division in baseball - winning the NL East.

And lost in the Cards' run was the Braves winning 6 in a row and 10 out of 11 to put it away.

The playoffs are kinda gravy at this point, and I know they're far from the best NL team, but I guess you never know.

Yep, the Cardinals should be cast as Don Quixote attempting to slay the giant Dodgers... and then slaying a Giant.... sadly after that, most people will be rooting for an alcoholic enabler to kill a poor defenseless bird. (I don't think there are actual Braves fans, so there is probably nobody cares about their playoff aspirations)

The Phillies go down for the season with a whimper, losing 4 straight, scoring 0, 1, 2, and 3 runs in those games. Bryce Harper’s MVP run fizzles with an 0fer series against the Braves.

Cueto.

It’s NOT over yet, still some work to do, but the Yankees magic number for the 1st Wildcard is down to 2 with 3 to play. Could be some entertaining scenarios such as a 3-team tie for the 2nd Wildcard. I wonder if Manfred would consider accommodating MLB’s TV partners by having a split doubleheader tiebreaker Monday, with teams A & B playing in the afternoon, followed by the winner taking on Team C in prime time? Or move the 2nd game to Tuesday afternoon at the 1st Wildcard site, with the winner advancing to Wildcard Game, which would remain in prime time?
   180. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: September 30, 2021 at 10:59 PM (#6042730)

Deserves got nothing to do with it but I’ve seen enough Cards teams win when they’ve had the far lesser season. Yeah I’m a Braves fan and they’re worse than the cardinals. But it would be a shame for the NL champ to be anyone other than the Giants or Dodgers.
   187. Bret Sabermatrician Posted: October 01, 2021 at 08:24 AM (#6042757)
I'm sure it's happened more times than I'd think, but going 0-11 against the team you're directly competing against for a playoff spot in the last week of the season has to kill Bryce Harper's MVP candidacy.
   188. bunyon Posted: October 01, 2021 at 08:31 AM (#6042758)
You’d think.

I'm a Cardinals fan and I kind of agree. I'm already anticipating the wailing and gnashing of teeth when the Cardinals beat the Dodgers in the Wild Card game. They'll advance while being universally acknowledged as a "lesser" playoff team. Luckily for Baseball, they will not survive the buzzsaw that is the 2021 Giants. I still have nightmares of Michael Wacha pitching to Travis Ishikawa..

But back to the Dodgers, you know, pre-Wild Card they'd be on the outside looking in, despite their 100-plus wins. Hey, it happens sometimes when there's more than a single division. With the Wild Card, they're being given a second chance, after not winning their division, to play a series in October. What they do with that chance is up to them...

Who the hell is Alejandro Kirk? Was he the 1st round pick of the Middle Earth Hobbits?


Thought he was an Ewok.

Everyone likes to point to the 2006 Cardinals, while conveniently forgetting that the 2005 Cardinals lost to an 89 win Astros. Or how in 2015, the worst team in NL post season (the 90 win Mets) got to represent the NL in the World series while the 100 win Cardinals, 98 win Pirates and 97 win Cubs sat at home.

It happens, it's the nature of the post season, there is no "fair or unfair" about it, it's not like they changed the rules after the season began, everyone knows what they have to do to win it all going into the season. I don't think that winning the world series or not making it, invalidates the quality of the season you put up. Your fans are going to remember the quality of the season.

CFB, I agree with you that it's neither fair nor unfair, it's just how it is. And you're absolutely right, the 2005 and 2015 Cards got jobbed the same way (as did the 97 Braves). I sort of am okay with it when the teams are close in wins - had the 2015 NL champs been the Pirates, I'd have been fine. But this year, the Giants and Dodgers are so clearly the better teams in the NL that it just doesn't sit right. (Just as you will the Cards, if the Braves win their series, I'll be rooting for them).

And I agree with your points above and in other threads, the Cards aren't a lesser team at the moment. They're not who they were in April. I think they should be underdogs to SF or LA but not hugely so and I won't be shocked if they win the NL. I just wish April got more weight than it does under the current system.

Obviously the biggest job ever in MLB was in 2001 the 95 win Yankees going to the World series after playing in the weakest division in the league, and beating the 102 win A's and 116 win Mariners. It makes the two Marlin worlds series victory pale in comparison, same with the the 2006 Cardinals title.

(this is somewhat tongue in cheek, but the 2006 Cardinals were only 14? games behind the Mets, not 21 or that the Yankees were)

1973 Mets were 17 games worse than the Reds that they beat in the NLCS. But of course the real outrage was the alternate timeline where the sub-.500 AL West winning 1994 Rangers beat the 105 win Expos in the World Series in the first year of three division baseball.

I hate how MLB has mostly forgotten the 2001 Mariners. I think I've found my rooting interest for the season.

Which means they're doomed, of course.

The most amazing part of that for me has always been that they needed one more win for an all time record...and one of their losses was the biggest blown lead in baseballhistory. Had they simply held onto a 12 run lead they would have finished with 117 wins.

The Yanks are in the best position in the Wildcard race, but their path is still somewhat perilous. Three-game winning & losing streaks are common, and not that predictable. Fingers crossed.

Tyler O'Neill makes it 1-0 in the first inning for the Cardinals with his 33 hr of the season.

For some reason I thought September was a 33 day month.... LOL.
