Looking like we are going to take another one from the Dodgers. Man it is good to see the team scoring some runs. Kyle Mcclellan looked great too.

Wow.... First time since 1922 that the Cardinals have scored 8 runs in 5 straight games.

Guess Tony was right about it only being the first week of the season. The bats are on fire. I wish they would stay on the West Coast. They are lighting it up out there. Not sure I want them to return home.

Gee, another blown save and loss for Franklinhausen. I didn't see that coming. Now, we can hear La Russa tells us how much smarter he is than us if we dare to ask why Franklinhausen is still closing. This is reaching Chris Duncan/Sleestak levels.

When is TLR going to give up on Franklin? Talk about putting a damper on what turned out to be a good road trip. I know you aren't supposed to put the go ahead run on base, but the Dodgers only have two guys hitting at all right now, and Kemp is one of them. Put him on base and make the other guys beat you.

Quick question: would you rather lose the game by having one of those young fireballers out there who is still learning or would you rather lose it with a sore-armed 38-year old failure who should be ashamed that he is drawing a paycheck?

That's true, but I don't think Pujols is coming back. From everything I've heard, they are just way too far apart on the money and years. They should have extended his deal about three years ago before it ever came to this.

That's what gets me. When you have a player like that you lock him down long before it comes to this. They knew what they had and they knew what was coming. Why even put yourself in position to get into a bidding war with other teams, or let it get to where the player has you by the balls.

Oh TLR, you are a silly goose. We can't score 9 runs every game so you don't have to use Franklin in those situations. Bring on Sanchez. At least if he gets blown up, there is some upside with the knowledge/experience he gains.

I'm for either Boggs or Sanchez at this point. Boggs seems to have found his groove in middle relief, aka hasn't gotten blown up yet, and he has a pretty lively fastball in the mid 90's. All about control with him. I know you can't really make a call on a pitcher after 3 innings but 8 k's is pretty impressive. Not sure he is ready to be put Sanchez in the pressure cooker yet though.

Ryan Franklin Speaking About Cardinals Fans:

Quote
"(the booing) doesn't bother me, but it just shows some people's true colors. You're either a fan or you're not."

"You don't boo your own team. 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 him?

"They are supposed to be the best fans in baseball. Yeah, right."
http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/article_2087cb64-b973-58cc-beb2-188ac325a9d8.html

I hope this worthless son-of-a-bitch falls off the face of the earth. He's making $3.5 million a year, has already blown four games this year, and he's complaining because the paying customers are tired of his incompetence?

And please spare me the "He's just frustrated. He really didn't mean it. See, he explained it later" argument.

He meant what he said but someone got to him and told him to backtrack on it. Screw him.

I'll give Franklin a pass on this even though it pi$$ed me off. He knows he sucks right now & doesn't know if he can fix it. Good thing is Sanchez & Boggs looked good last night closing the game out.

Same. He said it in the heat of the moment. I wish Sanchez would get the job. He looks great. More than a strikeout an inning, doesn't give up hits or walks, etc.

My two choices for closing were Boggs & Sanchez so I am glad one of them is getting a shot. Boggs probably got the nod since he has a bit more MLB experience.

I don't normally, but it seemed to finally get the message to La Russa so I am fine with it.

With that said, I don't agree with what Franklin said. Even if it was a heat of the moment thing. You don't come out and criticize your fans like that. They are the ones putting the money in his pocket that he isn't earning. It's normal to be frustrated by the booing, but he should keep it to himself. He will only make things worse with remarks like that.

I don't think there is anything wrong with booing a guy that is performing terribly, unless it's a guy like Albert Pujols or Yadier Molina or Chris Carpenter, who have earned the right to suck once in a while. I don't boo players myself, but I will defend anyone's right to do so.

It wouldn't have bothered me so much if he had directed his remarks at the people who were booing but he lumped all fans into it. I don't care if it was in the heat of the moment or not, that was wrong. As a Cardinals fan, I wear the "Best Fans in Baseball" badge with honor and he besmirched it.

This pretty much sums up how I feel about the situation too. I don't boo players myself, but I have no problem with fans that do. That is if they are deserving of it. Fans pay a lot of money to go and watch these guys play. If they aren't happy with their performance then they have every right to boo the guy. You don't want to get booed, then suck it up and work on your game.

TLR completely owned Dusty Baker in the first game of the series.

Switching Bautista into the starting role 15 minutes before game time was a genius move and not only for yesterday's game. The Reds went into their bullpen early last night and that could pay off tonight or tomorrow.

Good god Franklin couldn't be any more unreliable. That guy is done in the bigs IMO. Just get one utility player out and its still a game but he couldn't do that.  I'm tired of tonys need to help a guy "get right" when said guy has lost his ability to play at this level.

You know, what I hate worse than anything is that La Russa's big shtick is "playing a hard nine" but he literally gives games away just because he like certain players and doesn't like others.

Yes after the Votto Homer. I thought I was hearing it so I called a friend of mine who goes to most games, he was there and yes, Carp was and is getting heat.

I see this playing out the "Springdale/HDN" way. TLR puts in a younger guy just because of the heat, one slip up, and puts the older (and less talented) player in. The younger guy gets mad, and kaput. Whole team implodes. Meanwhile, we lose games.

Yes after the Votto Homer. I thought I was hearing it so I called a friend of mine who goes to most games, he was there and yes, Carp was and is getting heat.

Well, that's wrong. Carpenter has earned the right to suck. Unlike that sore-armed bastard that gave up the winning runs. Maybe the fans saw Franklinhausen warming up and started booing. :)
