MONDAY WAS AN OFF-DAY. THAT’S OKAY, BASEBALL TONIGHT. I’LL BE TALKIN’ BASEBALL WEDNESDAY. COME BACK!
BASEBALL IS LIFE. THE REST IS JUST DETAILS! Talkin’ Baseball w/you since 2008!
A man at a baseball game wondered why the ball kept getting bigger and bigger.
Then it hit him!
TIME TO FLY!

TALKIN’ SH&T/SHILDT (no offense, Shildty) “The walks always hurt,” Shildt said. “We’ve been really good. We’ve gone from an area we wanted to seek improvement in, been clear about that, and have done it. Clearly tonight, it didn’t help. That was a big part of it with seven walks.”
ST. LOUIS — What a weekend! Three sold out games @ Busch Stadium vs LAA.
It was so good having Albert Pujols back playing ball in STL. Missed watching that sweet swing of his. Albert homered in Saturday’s contest. OMG!! First time to cheer for an opposing player’s home run. That won’t happen again. Albert had a curtain call too! We cheered like crazy. Guess our pain from his 2011 sudden departure has healed some. Any sooner would have been too soon.
Pretty good weekend for Albert too. He really wanted to hit a homer @ Busch Stadium (he told LAA teammates). You know he was all soft with the feelings (tears in his eyes many times) but a win is still what he was after in the end. Sunday, the Angels got the win. Sweeping his team just doesn’t seem right. We won the series!
FUN! It was FUN! to watch Yadier Molina orchestrate Albert’s at bats by standing between the pitcher’s mound and home plate while Cardinals Nation showed his “brother” some love. WOW! So special!

PITCHING: Miles Mikolas IP5.0/H7/R1/ER1/BB2/SO4/HR0/ERA4.33 Total STL Pitcher BB’s: 7
“They made me work for it,” Mikolas said. “You keep them to seven singles, they only get one run, that’s not bad. Keeping the ball down, limiting the big hit. I was able to stay away from the big hit.”
