Free Game of the Day — Cardinals v. Pirates 7:05pm (ECBT)*

Isn’t MLB the bestFeatured image? Today, they are giving you FREE MCCUTCHEN! Yes, you can watch Cutch do awesome Cutch things FREE! Normally, watching Cutch is your reward for sitting through Happless batting, but today, enduring the pitchers at bat is made even better because FREE CUTCH!

Pittsburg is my fav ballpark, BTW, kiddies. Their sammiches and the ferry and the river are so CUTCH!  Let’s take a moment for Clemente now…

Ok, play ball!  Watch CUTCH here! It’s FREE and AWESOME!

  1. And since it’s in PIT, viewers of this game should be able to avoid the Cardinal broadcasting team.

    I want to play the Pirates in the wild card game, because they are the better team and I’m not nearly as confident in beating them in a 5-game series as I am in beating the STL’s.

  2. After the Cardinals literally giving away two games late versus the hapless Brewers….I’m not particularly excited to see Lance Lynn facing Pittsburgh on the road. I predict 2 Pedro Alvarez HRs.

  3. Please, please, please Buccos, sweep this. The idea of the WC game eliminating either the Cubs or Bucs makes me sad. It will be unenjoyable. But a Cards/Cubs game. Wow. That’s like Karate Kid vs the Cobra Kai. Just so easy to pick who to root for.

    • Even as a Cardinal fan, I am completely empathetic to this viewpoint. Even though the players have almost all changed, the Cardinals have been in the playoffs a lot the last 15 years….and for other fans, it is more fun to see new uniforms in the playoffs.

      To me, it is fun that the Cubs, Jays, and Mets are all in the post season this year….I just hope that 1-by-1 the Cardinals end their seasons.

      • I don’t even really dislike the Cards. I think Lackey and Curt Schilling are probably good buds. The Pujols/LaRussa/Glenn Beck thing pissed me off. The constant “best fans in baseball” thing irks me. I didn’t like Adams pushing the fan. Didn’t like Rasmus being run out of town the way he was. But really, that’s old stuff, and most of my disliked players are gone.

        I just really need a team to root against. Game 162 a few years ago was great for me as a Rays fan. I still giggle thinking about the Rays coming back, down 7-0 in the 8th, and Papelbon simultaniously blowing the save. It was so joyful, not just because my Rays won, but that my blood lust was fulfilled with the Sawx hilarious downfall.

        I need that! I need the Cards to blow a 4 game lead with 6 to go. It’s just…baseball at it’s best.

  4. This game is showing some of the Matheny’s stupidity.

    He’s not smart. He feels like he should do something, but being stupid, he doesn’t know what. So….with a man on 1st and one out…he plays the infield in for absolutely no freaking reason at all. None. This is an obvious net negative move…and it results in a routine grounder becoming a single.

    I’m glad he’s pretty and all….but damn it is frustrating to watch his team play when games matter…you just sit here waiting to see what nonsensical move he’ll make next (like, you know…having a guy that hasn’t pitched in 6 weeks come into pitch in tied an elimination game in the playoffs…where if you give up a run, your season is over).

    • Sounds like a drinking game…Have you tried dysfunctional manager bingo? Make a card with dumb managerial choices in the squares. When he does one, mark it out. First one to bingo wins. Play with your Cards friends.

      • The even more frustrating (or ironic) thing….is he ONLY does this shit when games matter the most. He generally stays the hell out of the way the rest of the year…like any manager should…especially one that doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing.

  5. This season is becoming more and more unfun all the time. Wainwright gone since April. Grichuk hurt twice. Holliday out most of the year. Martinez done for the year. Molina done for the year. Adams missing most of the season. Belisle missing most of the year. Walden missing almost the entire year. Now Piscotty with an ugly injury.

    It’d be nice if they could just have most of their team for a while at some point this year.

        • “Show hair” is what Rod Allen calls the long flowing locks. They hypothesized that Jackson (Texas reliever) spent about 45 minutes doing his hair and putting his cap on to pitch. De Grom is another they talk about his show hair.

        • No, y’all don’t want to be mean and you’re always hedging your bets, so you won’t just be honest. See, this is why I don’t date. Just dealing with my guy friends is a pain in the ass.

        • Uh huh…..did you noticed that you switched the verbs. We don’t want to be honest because you will view honesty as being mean and it isn’t worth having the argument, which is 100% of your making.

          Maybe you don’t date because them trying to figure out how to successfully deal with you is a pain in the ass when they never know which personality they are going to get…so they play it safe, and that pisses you off.

        • Again, sorry for the misunderstanding, whey you said, “See, this is why I don’t date. Just dealing with my guy friends is a pain in the ass.” To me, it meant just that…dealing with your guy friends was a pain in the ass…not, dealing with them and their girl drama….as girl drama was not mentioned.

      • The point is…when they eventually lose in the playoffs, it is going to be unsatisfying considering that it’ll be about 1/2 the starting lineup/rotation actually playing the games.

  6. OMG, I hope there is video available later, but there was a hilarious moment in the Tigers-Rangers game just now. Collins hit a HR for the Tigers and the camera cut to the Rangers bullpen. They caught a shot of the coaches there. Their bullpen phone case wouldn’t open. They had to jar it open to get to the phone to call someone to warm up. LOL
