2020 Stl Cardinals thread of....who knows?

Recommended Posts

I know the white Sox aren't world beaters but pretty good to do that today. I'm liking the look of Carlson. That one he pulled foul in the 2nd game would have gone forever.

Kind of seems like their testing sucks. I should probably know this,  but can positive testing lag from infection date?   

This is what the team was told about the most recent positives.

I watched the games today. Carlson has a beautiful swing. Hope he is as good as the hype.

Looked kind of like John Olerud's swing.

There's no way a team can catch up from that game deficit.  It's just too much work in too short a time frame.  I don't blame MLB, but this year is fucked.

Pretty sure they are doing percentages this year, but won't matter.

I thought they were stacking double-headers to catch up?

They are but they are never going to get to 60. Manfred said 50-55 was enough to see if the cards belonged in the post season. I'd find a link but I'm drunk.

It's still a ridiculous burn rate.

I haven't been able to watch much, but I am today.

 

15-12 since the Covid delay.  27 games in 23 days playing 0.556 ball.  That's crazy.  I give them credit,

Cards (0.489) are 0.001 behind Cincinnati (0.490) for 2nd place in the NL Central.  With 13 games remaining to the Reds' 9, an 11-2 record would cement a playoff spot.  Obviously, that's not going to happen, but it's at least as unlikely the Reds go 9-0.  The two teams currently slotted for wild card spots (Philadelphia and San Francisco) have a little more cushion at 0.500 each.  Milwaukee can top out at the same record as the Reds (0.567), assuming no rainouts.  Pittsburgh is out of it.

Cardinals have 5 games against the Brewers and 5 against Pittsburgh, along with 3 against the Royals.  They couldn't ask for a much better path.  The Brewers have 3 games against the Reds and the Royals, so there is plenty of opportunity there.  In addition to those 3 against Milwaukee, the Reds have 3 each against the White Sox and the Twins, both of which are among the top 5 teams in the league.

Could get interesting.
