I ran downstairs to grab a sandwich for lunch.
I get back to the office and my phone looks like this:
If you’re going to hang your hat on pitching?
You should probably be better at pitching.
With the opening day loss, the Cardinals will now have a day off to sit in the corner and think about what they did.
Carlos Martinez crossed his rocky spring training over the divide into the regular season.
- 4.1 IP
- 4 earned runs
- 6 walks
- 8.31 ERA
Not to be outdone, Matt Bowman’s current ERA is at 81. Eight one.

Specious plate discipline?
10 K's through 5? Thor is definitely back. pic.twitter.com/vmHN58A5wa

Better believe it.
Hopefully Austin tuned out before the bottom of the 5th!
Already a full game back in the division?

Other items of dread?
- Fowler not able to get on base from the lead-off spot (0-4)
- Brett Cecil picking up where he started 2017
- Pham’s 0-4
- Marcell Ozuna wearing a ski mask in 51 degree weather (and his 0-4)
It’s only 1 game.
And there were some good things that happened (if Jose Martinez isn’t at 1B on Saturday afternoon, I SWEAR…).
But after a long off-season, this isn’t the way you picture opening day going.
I guess this is pretty OK, tho:
update: holland deal done now, pending physical. ,https://t.co/wMe5j0Fb9u
