2021 Series #19 | Indians @ Cardinals | June 8-9, 2021

Do Not Sell My Personal Information
pretty disappointing when you're team's down 4 after 3 and it's more likely haley's comet will appear than that your team will get back into it
 
You just have to love the way the offense always battles. Never out of a game.
 
4 batters in tonight, we had 3 hits - 23 batters in tonight we have 3 hits
 
Big strong guys don't have to hit it that well to drive it out. He beat Goldschmidt with that pitch and it still flies out. But not ONeil's, that was no cheapy.

Next time I see my mom I'll be waiting the whole time for an opportunity to let a "Carter has pills" reference fly. Learn something new everyday.

Well I have seen enough. Maybe a better day tomorrow
 
Actually now that they brought Karinchak in, might be worth a little look at his "stickiness"
 
Damn Karinchak - they take the pine tar out of his glove so now he starts patting his three fingers on his "sunscreened" arm. Guy didn't learn anything about being obvious.

Is there a brain in his head ?
 
It could be worse, at least the CWS are losing
 
Mejia had two out and a runner on second in the first inning. He got ahead of Arenado 1-2, then walked him. Seven pitch at-bat, one fastball.

Next up was O'Neill. Got ahead 0-2, then started nibbling with off-speed stuff. Seven pitch at-bat, one fastball, infield single on a dribbler to third.

Next batter was Molina. Got ahead 1-2, then walked him in a 10-pitch at-bat. Eight straight breaking balls before the last two pitches were fastballs. Mejia was afraid to challenge the 38-year-old. The walk forced in a the first run.

Next was Carpenter. The score is now 2-1 with two out and the bases loaded. Got ahead 1-2, then gave up a 3-run double on the 5th pitch. No fastballs, three change-ups, the third of which was ripped into the right field corner. Cards up 4-2, ballgame over, Mejia out.

Those four batters saw 29 pitches of which four were fastballs. Mejia was ahead 0-2 or 1-2 on all of them but could not put them away. There were 10 foul balls.

One thing I noticed is Mejia does not pitch up in the zone. Everything is down and he stays between 85-94 mph. Not much change in location or speed. His pitches have good movement but everything was middle and down. It might help if he mixed in a few high fastballs.

Doubtful.
 
Maybe need to be a little older.

What does the saying more than Carter has pills mean?
old-fashioned A huge number of something; an amount of something that is greater than one can count. A reference to a popular patent medicine created in 1868 called "Carter's Little Liver Pills" (renamed "Carter's Little Pills" in 1959). I swear, that boy's got more excuses than Carter has liver pills!
was gonna comment on that - my mother, god rest her soul, used that expression all the time --- it's an age thing
How the hell old are you guys???
