Did all the people who threw the towel in on the Cardinals get back on the wagon or waiting for a 5 game losing streak?
I think every stat improved during that stretch.....couldn't have gotten much worse. Left ton of guys on base, starting pitching, Arenado was on cold streak, lost ton of 1 run games, etc before the nice stretch.Back on May 4th I said the Cards needed to slug their way back to contention. That’s what they did averaging 7+ runs a game during that 12-4 stretch.
The offense has come back down to earth over the last week, only scoring 15 runs in the last seven games.
No question, but we have to at-least go 2-1 in Pittsburgh first. I’m excited to see Jung when the Texas series rolls around. He is on a heater right now, hopefully a little cool off for STL.I'd argue this is a big road trip in general coming up with 3 in Pittsburgh and 3 at a surprisingly first place Rangers team.
At least the Cardinals are making some internal moves that make a little more sense lately......Liberatore up lately and bringing Walker back up
I’m a little worried about the messaging in the organization. Jordan’s answers about the org. trying to change him and him ignoring and saying he going back to being himself raises a red flag for me more about the org than JW. The kid had never played higher than AA, mashes in spring, bring him up and he starts a 12 game hitting streak to start, and then we need to change his launch angle because you didn’t see the HR’s? Give me a break. Be you JW and hit them where they ain’t.It sure seems like a lot longer than just 2 off days , at least it does to me..............................
Jordan Walker joins the team in Pittsburgh tonight...........I hope he can produce enough to lock down an outfield position and end the season as the NL ROTY............JMHO.........................
