THURSDAY WAS AN OFF-DAY, BUT I’M STILL TALKIN’ BASEBALL FOR YOU.

TALKIN’ ABOUT A PLAYER WHO COULD GET THE CALL SOON.

           Click it out & watch Kelly’s solo blast

Kelly's solo blast

Springfield — Carson Kelly is makin’ headlines in the Minors. Kelly just moved up from Class A Advanced at Florida State to Springfield Double-A.

His batting average has improved since coming to Springfield and he’s found his stroke in Double-A. He’s looking at .294/.333/.423.

“I knew I had it in there (Florida State), I just had to focus on my catching,” Kelly said. “Catching was always No.1 and it still is, but having the hitting come along, it’s great to have because ultimately you want to catch and hit.”

 He finally feels like his fundamentals are becoming more sound. That changes the way that he approaches the game. 

“Now it’s the thinking about the game,” Kelly said. “Who’s coming up? Who’s on deck? Which pitchers are in the ‘pen? What are the matchups? The mental approach is what I’m still trying to figure out and learn. I think there are always learning experiences, and now here in Double-A, now that pitchers hit, there is a little extra thought to it.”

He keeps a journal with notes on pitchers (now who does that remind you of?) Kelly has continued his education and is playing at the same time. He’s taking a class this summer, and is 20 to 30 hours away from finishing his economics degree at Oregon State.

There’s more to life than baseball….really? He has redirected his focus off the diamond, which has helped his performance on it. 

Watching players develop in the Minors is exciting! Keep an eye out for Carson Kelly.  He just has a baseball-like kind of name, doesn’t he?

WEDNESDAY @ CHI — MATT CARPENTER

 

www.cardinals.com

CHICAGO – Sweet! Our Cards swept the Cubs in Chicago. . .in Chicago! Our offense was on fire!

Oh, what a great feeling! It gets better: We (Matt Carpenter) knocked out RHP Jake Arrieta in the fifth inning. . . .the fifth inning! Another powerful feeling. Then we hurt the Cub bullpen bad.

The road has been a very, very good place for our club. We have won eight consecutive road games. Bonus! 17 of the next 23 games are on the road.  Yes, we still love the St. Louis Cardinals’ relationship with Busch Stadium….but this road record is working! No jinx! Five games over .500 – that’s a pretty nice place to be.  Keep it getting better.  You’ve got the power! Can you feel the karma? Another blessing — the rain predicted stayed away. That rain that we thought might save us from a Scareyietta/Arrieta beating didn’t happen. Nada!

Yes, it was a happy flight to Seattle!
