Ryan Franklin on the Cardinals and he getting booed at home . . .

"They must have short memories," said Franklin. "I think I've been decent for the four years I've been here and then ... to do that. ... But that's all right.

"I wouldn't do it. I'm a fan of the Oklahoma Sooners and whenever they have a bad game, I don't stand out there on the sidelines and tell them, 'You [stink].'''

Earlier, Franklin had said some other things he later would regret, including a jab at the St. Louis fans.

"You don't boo your own team," said Franklin. "I don't care who you are or what you say or just because you spent your money to come here to watch us play that somebody happens to make one bad pitch and give up a homer and you are going to start booing?

"They are supposed to be the best fans in baseball," Franklin had said. "Yeah, right."

Have I ever mentioned how ridiculous ticket prices are in St. Louis?  The cheapest face value ticket for Saturday is $51, and that's for the worst seats in the stadium.  That's just nuts.

That's not really that much more than I use to pay 10 years ago though...so at least its remained consistant. ;)

Title: Re: St. Louis sucks

To be fair: the Cardinals use those tickets as give away's, cheap season seats, and specials.  For example: I will get several offers a year that I can go to a ballgame for $10 as part of a teacher appreciation.  Or my high school baseball team will be given 100 tickets to sell for $20 and if they do, they get to go on the field and play for an hour after the Cards' game.  And they get to keep the money. 

By cheap season tickets, I mean for around $1000 you can get those seats all season long.  At $50, that's a fourth of their value.  And if you have a special event and need tickets to sell at auction or give away, they are very generous, and it's usually these seats.

So the seats aren't spectacular, you're in the ballpark.

As much as I dislike the Cards, they do some smart things to endear their fans and supporters.

The Cardinals and the Brewers have both commented that the lights in the new right field board make it hard for bullpen catchers to see pitches coming from relievers warming up.  The Cubs say some ads have been adjusted.

Everyone but the Cardinals.

Here is a link from Will Leitch.

http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/153308824/cardinals-playoff-opponents-cubs-pirates

Chicago Cubs. So here's the nuclear scenario. Like the Cardinals, the Cubs are one of baseball's signature, jewel franchises, and the two teams, because of geography and because of history, will always be connected. Since the Cubs have last won the World Series, the Cardinals have won 11. St. Louis has ruled the National League Central (and before that, East) while the Cubs have commonly finished in the basement. The Cardinals swindled the Cubs out of Lou Brock. This has been, roughly, 100 years of total Cardinals dominance over the Cubs. But they have never, not once, met in the postseason. Which means that if the Cubs were to somehow beat the Cardinals in the NLDS, almost all of those 100 years of history would be erased. Cardinals fans could cite the championships, Ernie Broglio, Bruce Sutter, all of it, and it wouldn't matter, because all a Cubs fan would have to do is say, "the 2015 NLDS," and it would win all arguments. Losing to the Cubs in the playoffs is, to put it mildly, a Cardinals fan's nightmare. (As I joked to one of my Cubs fan friends the other day, "My favorite team is the Cardinals. My second favorite team is the Cubs not winning the World Series.") If the Cardinals were to beat the Cubs if they play in the NLDS this year, it would be just one more log on the Cardinals Rule campfire. But if they lost, Cubs fans would never, ever let it go, and they would be right to. The Cardinals don't want to lose anyone this postseason. But they really, really don't want to lose to the Cubs. Which is yet one more reason for the rest of America to get behind the Cubs this October.

Quote from: Bruce Miles
The Cubs convention can be an intimidating experience for even the most seasoned of players or managers, with thousands of fans packed into a hotel.

Recently acquired pitcher John Lackey didn't seem fazed, though.

"I played for the Red Sox," he said. "They take their baseball pretty seriously there, too."
Lackey must not have been thinking clearly when he failed to mention the team with "the best fans in baseball".

Busch is now the 11th MLB park I've been to.  When I first walked in and looked around it looked very nice.  Then the PA announcer started talking and was barely understandable, not that it mattered. 

The scoreboard is terrible.   Its primary purpose seems to be to play commercials.  The lineups are there (unless it's between innings) but when a hitter comes to the plate his stats are so tiny they can't be read.  The out of town scores are there but displayed on a hideous bright green background.  You can see the scores but it is hard to tell which game it is in some cases.

I wouldn't say don't go there but don't expect too much.

If you have some time to kill in St. Louis, visiting the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum isn't a bad way to go.   There are lots of videos to watch.  The one of Lou Brock's hit reminded me that it was a liner off the pitcher that went into foul territory.  Seeing Eddie Gaedel's 1/8 jersery was interesting.   The few Tony LaRussa videos were as obnoxious as you would expect.

Nelly scolds Mike Piazza for dissing St. Louis restaurants
Updated: February 28, 2017, 12:06 PM ET
Associated Press

Nelly has promised to bring baseball Hall of Famer Mike Piazza back to eat in the rapper's hometown of St. Louis after Piazza spoke ill of the city's restaurant scene.

Piazza recently bought in an Italian soccer club. He told The New York Times for a story published last week that he had met with groups looking for expansion franchises in Major League Soccer. A St. Louis group is pushing for an expansion team, but Piazza told the Times, "I'd rather be poor in Italy than based in St. Louis. You can't get a good meal there!"

Nelly apparently bumped into Piazza and tweeted a video of himself with the catcher early Tuesday. Nelly promises to bring Piazza home to eat on "the hill," the city's hub for Italian cuisine.

The current contenders are the question comparing Donaldson and Gyrko and a Goold answer in the Bryce Harper question where he says you can’t be sure that the Cubs 3rf starter will be better than the Cardinals 6th starter. I mean if they have 6 starters that are better than Lester, Hendricks, Quintana I’d actually be scared of the Cardinals.

Let’s Face It: The Cubs and Cardinals Are Competing On Different Levels

Quote
To the surprise of no one, the Cubs and Yu Darvish agreed to terms on a six-year contract that will pay the RH starting pitcher $126 million.

Cardinals fans reacted calmly to the news.

Actually, no…

They did not.

Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr., president of  baseball operations John Mozeliak and GM Michael Girsch are getting reviews nastier than leading “Worst Film of 2017” candidate “Mother,” starring Jennifer Lawrence.

Let’s clear some smoke and assess the Darvish damage.

1. Was anyone stunned by this? If so, why?
2. The Cubs already had the better overall team and a stronger rotation than St Louis.
3.  The Cardinals had a more moderate, measured plan for improving their pitching for 2018.
4. So why have the Cubs outspent the Cardinals by a nearly 8-to-1 ratio so far this offseason?
5. The Cubs have put another $215 million on their long-term payroll commitments for a simple reason:
6. The Cardinals aren’t competing at the same level as the Cubs … so let’s just drop the pretense.
7.  Realistically, the Cardinals are a real long shot to catch the Cubs in 2018 …
8. No disrespect intended, but fans and media hollering at the Cardinals
9. It’s important to remember how the Cardinals operate.
10. I’m not saying I agree with this strategy; I just recognize it’s worked well for this management team.

Gyorko left Monday's game in the seventh inning with a strained right hamstring. Greg Garcia will fill in at third base.

If you look at his minor league stats, they were not exactly calling out too loudly for him to ever be in the majors.

At 25, as a AAA OFer he hit .264 with a .678 OPS in 106 AB, and in 188 that year at AA he hit .301 with a .910 OPS in 163 AB.

At 26, as an AAA OFer he hit .324 with an OPS of .886 in 346 AB, and got a callup to the Cardinals, hitting .268 with an .824 OPS in 153 AB -- in other words, when he did well in the minors, he got called up, got some playing time, and did reasonably okay, but did not set the world afire.

The guy really has nothing to complain about regarding how the Cards used him or called him up.

Mikolas 6 ERA in 2 games against the Brewers, 1.28 in 2 games against the Reds.

His contact percentage of 82.4% is 12 worst in the majors and that is with people swinging at 39% of pitches outside the zone.  My guess is that as the league catches up to him they are going to make him come into the zone more and his zone contact percentage of 92.5% will catch up to him.  Only Felix, Godley, Blach and Chacin have higher zone contact percentages. 

Of those 4 pitches on Godley is really doing well.  He is also the only one of the group.  Godley's outside zone contact percentage is 37.9%.  The rest of them have an outside zone contact percentage of 59.7%-73.7%.  Mikolas has a 68%.

But I’ve also had a lot of people come up to me and question his effort and his energy level. You know, those are things that I can’t defend. What I can defend is trying to create opportunities for him, but not if it’s at the expense of someone who’s out there hustling and playing hard. And really I think everyone just needs to take a hard look in the mirror, and decide what they want that next chapter to look like. And in Dexter’s case, maybe taking a brief time out, trying to reassess himself, and then give him a chance for a strong second half is probably what’s best for everybody. I’m hopeful to touch base with him in the near future and decide what makes the most sense, but clearly he’s not playing at the level we had hoped.”

This belongs in Politics, but I heard that stuff about Jason Heyward his first two years from the Cubs too from a few random Cubs fans I'd bump into.  Seems like a struggling black player gets that tag a lot easier than a struggling white one does. 

I'm not sure what's going on with Fowler this year, but there was definitely no reason to question his energy, effort, and hustle during his time with the Cubs, much less his first season in St. Louis.  I have a hard time believing he just all of a sudden decided this was the year he was going to quit playing all out.

That's pretty shocking.  For a competent GM, this would be something of a last resort, so maybe they've already tried lots of stuff with Fowler. 

I don't actually know how competent Moz is.  Personally, I'm hoping he's a moron, and that the Cardinals gradually sink into a mediocrity that struggles to break .500 every year.

Looks like the Cards have found their manager...

Quote
Mike Shildt - C - Cardinals

The Cardinals will name Mike Shildt as their permanent manager, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

The Cardinals are expected to make it official Tuesday afternoon. Mike Matheny was fired last month after the Cardinals began the season at 47-46, but they've gone 26-12 since Shildt took over and now find themselves with the top spot in the NL Wild Card race. Given his early success and experience in the organization, it was probably just a matter of time before the interim tag was removed.

Or you could go for broke. Offer the Cubs a package of 2-3 top prospects and perhaps a current roster player or two (Paul DeJong, Jedd Gyorko, or Kolten Wong??) and get Kris Bryant. Which then opens the door to get Bryce Harper. We can all dream, right?

The Cardinals are panicking...

DALLAS KEUCHEL
SP, HOUSTON ASTROS

Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports that the Yankees are "facing late competition" from the Cardinals in their effort to sign free agent starter Dallas Keuchel.
Martino also writes that the Braves and Twins remain involved, "though the exact level of their interest" is unclear. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com heard from a source earlier this week that the Yankees had emerged as the "true favorites" for Keuchel, but it seems the Cardinals are making a push. Keuchel is no longer tied to draft-pick compensation and should land somewhere soon, maybe even with a multi-year contract in hand. The veteran southpaw posted a 3.74 ERA and 153/58 K/BB ratio over 204 2/3 innings (34 starts) with the Astros in 2018.

In the latest updates on National League voting, the Cardinals did not have a player in the top three at any of the eight positions. (Pitchers are voted on by peers.) It is highly unlikely at this point that any Cardinal will advance Friday past the “primaries” and into the final vote for the starter.

Quote
Daniel Descalso, the former Cardinal and now Cubs’ utility infielder, has received 410,122. That’s not only more than any Cardinal at any position, it’s more than the Cardinals’ middle infielders combined: Paul DeJong (195,357) and Kolten Wong (163,237).

Quote
The Cubs arrived in St. Louis searching for answers, somewhere between cursing themselves for winding up like this while simultaneously holding out hope for what still might be.

Manager Joe Maddon's group has become a haggard bunch away from Chicago, eyes bloodshot and beards scraggly. Smoke billows out from behind their team bus. This year's trips have one recurring theme: Bad News Bears.
