    Cubbies dismantle the Cards

    They left in their worst starter (Westbrook) in until he had 5 ERs in 3 innings. Then he was relieved by the worst reliever in all of baseball (Franklin) to give up another 4 in the next 3 innings.

    They benched Holliday, Berkman and Pujols to guarentee a Cub win with lots of game left. It was like a gift game.

    The big 2, Holliday and Berkman are 0 for the series with about 7 strikeouts between them. Rasmus in centerfield looked like Soriano out there. Just awful.

    They really missed Tony LaRussa's managerial GENIUS impact.

    (in all seriousness, can't stand the guy, but hope he's ok)

    Last I heard, he may not be back for a month. This shingles thing seems to be pretty serious. He let it go too long before getting treatment. What the heck IS shingles anyway?

    With the way Volquez pitched yesterday we should have been dismantled. It can happen to anyone. The Cards are playing good this year and I'm not about to talk trash about one of there loses because they have owned us the last 2 seasons. The Reds really need to take this series this weekend.

    This was one game, we got dismantled last year as well at least once. Don't think for a second the Cards are going away anytime soon. I think the saying "Every now and then even a bling squirrel finds a nut" applies here.

    Not going so well for the Cubs today. Cards up 5-0. Cubs have 3 hits, but Garcia has only needed 30 pitches to get through 3 innings.

    How is Carpenter going to explain the Shingles to his son?

    And btw, the Cards blew out the Cubs today.

    Man, I don't think this magdal even roots for a team. Just roots against the Cardinals at every forum. I'm not sure I've ever seen a thread that wasn't Cardinals centric posted by magdal.

    EDIT: magdal has...
    started 10 threads at northsidebaseball, 7 of them about the Cardinals.
    started 64 threads here at redszone, 46 about the Cardinals.

    So odd.

    Stats don't lie! Mad gal is a Cardinals hater that trolls NL central forums hating on the Cardinals. She is the furthest thing from a fan

    They benched Holliday, Berkman and Pujols to guarentee a Cub win with lots of game left. It was like a gift game.

    The big 2, Holliday and Berkman are 0 for the series with about 7 strikeouts between them. Rasmus in centerfield looked like Soriano out there. Just awful.
    In game one, Holliday had an rbi hit in his first at bat, then the K's piled up, but he wasn't (along with Berkman) 0-7. Also, Pujols was NOT benched in game 2. He came out of the game when we were trailing. In fact, he drove in 2 of our runs.

    Rasmus threw a guy out at the plate. He never did that last year. He is improving last year and looks nothing like Soriano.

    There is no cure so he didn't exactly let it go too long. The only thing that helps is rest. He would rest before and after games, but obviously it wasn't enough.

    I wouldn't care so much if she/he was factual, but he/she is constantly getting things wrong.
