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!

TUESDAY @ CHI.

WAINO’S CRAZY HUMOR! DON’T YOU LOVE IT!

www.cardinals.com

CHICAGO –  A topsy-turvy season. That’s what this is becoming.  Playing better on the road vs at Busch.  We’re usually so strong at Busch with Cardinal Nation there, but not so far this season. Tuesday was another close game that was down to the last pitch that we came out victorious. Both games we have won within one run.  Nice to win those!  

RHP Adam Wainwright was there for us in this start.  It’s good to have Waino doing more Waino-like things on the mound. His Uncle Charlie (that dynamite curve ball of his) made the trip — it’s so pretty! He was named Player of the Game.

“I had decent stuff tonight, but just my command was abysmal,” Wainwright said. “We just had to find a way to make it work and we did. It’s an undstatement to say this is a statement series just yet, but I think what you’re seeing now is a team that’s coming together at the right time.”

Our offense did it’s job and backed Waino just fine.  How could they not? Good job, guys! Back-to-back homers.  That’s what MattyHo/Holliday and Carp2/M. Carpenter did for us in the third.

Double play balls really helped out. They’re a pitcher’s best friend!

Rosey/Rosenthal closed the door tight in the ninth.  Those last three outs are the hardest to get. Nice job! Whew!

Today we go for the sweep. Cards are chipping away at that Cub lead for first place in the Central ! Remember 2011 & 13 games back in August. This is only June. There’s time!  But…Two things are looking to stop that today: 1. RHP Jake Arrietta and 2. lots of rain in the forecast.

Good luck, guys! Game on! Maybe
