    Yep. Should have been Hoover.

    Cards down 2-0 in the first with Kershaw pitching.

    A few things. When did a 3 run lead become a high leverage situation? And Logan wasn't a good choice for today? The choices were Logan, Parra or Simon. That's it. Hoover was penciled in to close. You hold Simon just in case you go extras or blow it open. So basically Parra or Logan. Chapman, Broxton & LeCure were LAST options...Dusty said before the game that he didn't want to use ANY of them today unless he was absolutely forced to (not verbatim).
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    If Hoover is closing today, he should have been warming up while the wheels fell off with Ondrusek pitching. He could have pitched to 1 batter in the 8th and then finished the 9th.

    Dusty always leaves pitchers in too long. It's been one of his biggest downfalls.

    I didn't say he wasn't. Thought that was likely the case. Trying to head off the Dusty stuff.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    I'm guessing we'll see JJ in the 9th and Simon if it goes extras. LeCure if we get desperate.
