WHAT A WEEKEND!?!? SO PROUD OF THE CARDINALS. JUST MAKES YA FEEL GOOD! CAN’T WAIT TO CHEER THE CARDS TO VICTORY AGAIN THIS WEEKEND IN CHICAGO!!!!
Cornbread and Mac showed Judi everything there is to love about Cardinal Baseball on her first Game! In this CBTV Episode, CB talks about the best Dog at Busch Stadium!
The Cardinals are riding a great streak of winning baseball! Heading into today’s game (Thursday the 27th) they’ve won four straight, are 20 games over .500 and basically have the Central Division in their back pocket. But has anybody noticed that Albert Pujols isn’t very good right now? Because of his great first half numbers, we don’t notice that since July 18th he has been ‘just a player’.
He hasn’t been great, amazing, spectacular, incredible, stunning or even really good. In the first game after the all-star break ‘El Hombre’ blasted two homeruns and his batting average stood at .334. He had 34 homeruns, 89 RBIs and his slugging percentage was .666. IOW, Albert was dominating baseball in a unique and dramatic way.
Since July 18th (36 games) Pujols is batting .280 with six bombs and 18 driven in. Still decent numbers for a mortal, but we’re talking about Albert Pujols here!!! Is he hurt? He’s been hit by seven pitches this season, with three of them coming in August, so is he dinged up or even flinching a bit?
His spectacular numbers coming out of the All-Star game hide how ‘normal’ he’s been since then. All players have slumps and an Albert Pujols slump is still a lot better than anybody else’s. But the question, “what can the Cardinals do in post-season with a depleted Pujols?” Is Albert just gassed and should manager Tony La Russa give him some extended time off?
Since July 17th, his gawdy slugging percentage of .740 has dropped to .666. His on base percentage is off by 17 points he just isn’t driving the ball. The average is down, the power diminished and strike outs are up. Right now, everybody’s favorite player is just not himself.
With the division race all but settled, shouldn’t Albert take some time off. Rest the legs, rest the elbow, rest the mind bib fella! We need you in October because this Albert Pujols won’t carry the Cards to another World Series win, but a rested and refreshed on just might!
I know the team home team is struggling to score runs, they’re doing less offensively than a Quaker minister, but is it because of a lack of talent or are they not yet healthy? This is a team that averaged almost 6 runs a game in April before injuries took outfielders Ryan Ludwick and Rick Ankiel out of the line up. Since their return they’ve both been lousy. Maybe, just maybe, they’re not all that healthy yet.
When you look at what Iron Man (also known as Albert Pujols) has done, you know this Cardinal line up can be a good one if ANYBODY ELSE hits at all. The Redbirds have played 57 games (heading into Monday’s contest with the Rockies) and Albert has 51 RBI’s. He’s belted 18 homeruns and is the only run producer on the team. It’s sad to watch Pujols leading his gang into a fight, when he’s the only one carrying a 2 by four.
So there are many wondering when the Cards’ general manager John Mozeliak will make a trade. Personally, I think they should do it today right after the game and pick up Colorado’s Garrett Atkins. He’s a power hitting third baseman that that is stinking it up right now and could be had on the cheap. I know Atkins is a Coors Field guy and you have to wonder if the altitude or the supplements are an issue, but he’s a plus defender could fill in behind Pujols and Ludwick quite nicely. One disclaimer here, his career numbers at Busch Stadium are very bad.
Short of that… maybe the good guys just need to get a break. Maybe Ludwick will get healthy and hit like he did last year, and maybe centerfielder Colby Rasmus will continue to develop into a genuine star, and maybe third baseman Troy Glaus will come back from his injury soon and all will be right with the world. A lot of good ‘iffy’ things could happen and make this Cardinal team a good Cardinal team. If not, they better go get Atkins or maybe Miguel Tejada from the Astros, or Fatima, Missouri’s Joe Crede from the Twins. One way or the other the Cardinals need a break.

Cardinal openers are the best! Even in this cold, awful weather coming to the ball park for the opening day festivities is one of my favorite things! The fans are pumped, the food tastes better, the music is sweeter and even the sports writers are in a good mood. It’s amazing!
The Cardinals should be decent this year and St. Louis is the host city for the All-Star game! Keep your fingers crossed and I’ll be able to bring you all kinds of interviews from the mega stars coming to the Gateway City!
In keeping with tradition, the Cardinals trotted out their players in fancy cars, played the Budweiser theme song while they introduced TLR and his troops and all was right with the world! Then the game started. Would Adam Wainwright be strong? Would Chris Duncan be able to hit again? Will Albert Pujols dominate the league once again?
The Cardinals jumped out in front with some clutch hitting by newcomer Khalil Greene and Ryan Ludwick and some decent pitching by Wainwright. But it just wasn’t to be.
The team’s biggest problem in 2008 was the bullpen and it was again on opening day. The relievers blew two different leads and the Birds were six to four losers.
Adam Wainwright is ever the professional and took the blame for not pitching deeper into the game. To listen to three different comments by the Redbird hurler, click on the icons above. The Cardinals will be OK this season, but somebody has to step up and the be stopper in the pen.
