    Cardinals (7-5) at Brewers (10-2) April 14-16

    I'll get the pictures and stuff filled in later.

    St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
    Monday, April 14, 7:10 PM CDT , Miller Park

    Lance Lynn, RHP
    11.0 IP, 2-0, 6.55 ERA, 1.55 WHIP

    Matt Garza, RHP
    14.0 IP, 0-1, 2.57 ERA, 0.93 WHIP

    Lynn gets a break from facing the Reds, who scored eight runs in 11 innings of his first two starts. Six of the runs have come in the first frame, which Lynn knows is an issue. Run support, though, always seems to be plentiful when he's on the mound.

    After taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his Brewers debut, Garza's follow-up was more of a battle. He surrendered eight Phillies hits in six innings and committed a run-scoring balk, but kept the Brewers close.

    St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
    Tuesday, April 15, 7:10 PM CDT , Miller Park

    Shelby Miller, RHP

    11.1 IP, 0-2, 6.35 ERA, 1.68 WHIP

    Marco Estrada, RHP

    11.2 IP, 1-0, 2.31 ERA, 1.20 WHIP

    Home runs have hurt Miller out of the gate, as five of the eight runs he's allowed have come via four homers, after allowing 20 in 31 starts a year ago. Miller is still seeking his first win and first start of more than six innings this season.

    A 31-pitch sixth inning cut short what was shaping up to be a sensational Estrada start in Philadelphia. He's off to the strongest start of Milwaukee's five starters, with 12 strikeouts in two starts.

    St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
    Wednesday, April 16, 12:10 PM CDT , Miller Park

    Joe Kelly, RHP

    11.1 IP, 1-0, 0.79 ERA, 1.41 WHIP

    Wily Peralta, RHP

    12.0 IP, 1-0, 2.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP

    Kelly pitched into the seventh in his last start, but was handed a no-decision despite not allowing an earned run. He has finished at least six innings in 14 of his last 17 starts and has allowed two runs or less in 13 of those games.

    Peralta was working Friday with catcher Jonathan Lucroy (not Martin Maldonado) for the first start since last June, but he looked unfazed. The 24-year-old allowed just one earned run in seven innings.

    Good game so far, Matt Adams beating the shift twice with really well struck hits.

    The pitching has been very good, and Peralta hit a bomb to straight away center.

    I just turned it on, but I like Lynn's line so far, hearing his mechanics are spot on.

    Wow, that makes you feel bad for the brewers. 2 great defensive plays on two hits to save a run, then garza gives up another hit and a bomb from jon jay.

    Great piece of hitting by Jay.

    That inning looked like the cards at their best last season, except for being thrown out.

    Fans can be such ****ing idiots

    We've all talked about fans booing and such and we've all agreed/disagreed. I personally don't care. But nothing pisses me off more than those little pricks who go to games and conveniently "drop" beer on a player below them or *******s bringing lights and lasers and shining it on players. *******s like that ruin the game for everyone

    I like seeing Tony Cruz getting action. I don't think he could start on another team. But I feel if he was given an everyday job, he would surprise people by the end of the year.


    C-Mart is fun to watch.

    I would like to see Martinez used exclusively in high leverage situations, and be relied on for multiple innings if necessary in those situations.

    Any time we have a short lead in the 6th, 7th, 8th, etc (2 runs or less) and let him go, unless you are about to face like 4 lefties in a row (then Choate/Siegrist). Let him be a bullpen ace. Let him pitch 3-4 innings if necessary. Let him be that awesome reliever ace....Rosey can have the saves still.

    Nice game. Amazing stat line for Lynn. Even Craig ripped a line drive into center for a hit. And Peralta gets his third home run (compared to his 7 total hits I think)

    Very worried about these next couple of games. Estrada has been great so far and Wily Peralta looked great in his first couple of starts as well. If our guys come ready to compete, we could be in for some good pitching duels. But Shelby hasn't looked good, and as much as I love him, Kelly has unfavorable peripherals, meaning he could be seeing his numbers drop too.

    i am excited to watch this game. I think any game now is when Shelby starts getting it in order again, lets make it this one Shelby!


    Regarding Allen Craig, he had a really good at bat a couple games ago, where he worked a deep count and fouled a lot of pitches off to the right. I think he eventually struck out, but he saw a lot of tough pitches deep into the count. I think having at-bats like that help you re-establish your timing and confidence.

    We all know that Craig is capable of turning it around and getting really hot. I don't typically think of him as being very streaky, he seems to be very consistent outside of a slow start to this year, and even a slow start to last year.

    I think what's worrying about his starts this year is the amount of weak ground balls, strike outs and pop ups, at one point something crazy like 28 of 35 balls never left the infield? Crazy weak hitting.

    I think the good part is we've seen him drive the ball very hard in spring, so we know he's not completely lost it, it's just a bad start
