2013 MLB game 15 thread: Cards at Bucs: Wed 4/17 


Shelby Miller vs. A.J. Burnett. 6:05 PM CT. FOX Sports Midwest and KMOX.

Note: Since Tuesday night, game 14 was not officially played, this should be the new game 14. However, to avoid confusion, I will not change the title now. I will post the Phillies season opener as game 15.

Nobody can say for sure, but we may have caught a break from the baseball weather God last night, as I do believe we were about to get throttled by Pittsburgh by the score of something along the lines of 13-6. I'm just glad no Cardinal homers were erased off the books as a result. I know if I were playing, the most demoralizing thing imaginable would be if I cranked a long dong into the cheap seats and then later saw it get taken away as if the feat never occurred in the first place. I think the second the umpire called the game off, I'd sit there in the dugout and cry like a baby for a good 10 minutes.

How about poor Pedro Alvarez?  Hitting .073 on the season, getting absolutely harrassed by the 8 fans at every game, finally comes up with a big hit to knock in a run, yet in the eyes of the statistician it never happened

Hopefully, Pedro will regress to his .073 harassable self.

So, will Robinson get a do over and start again?

Common thought is that Stan lost one of those rainout homers in '48, that would have given him the triple crown. But then I've heard that this was not really true and is folklore. Anyone know if Stan really did get a home run taken away due to a rainout that year?

Stan swears the story is true, but no one has been able to find out which game it was.  That rained-out homer didn't just cost Stan the Triple Crown... it cost him the Dectuple Crown.  He otherwise led the league in BA, RBI, runs scored, doubles, triples, OBP, OPS, SLG, OPS+ and TB.  He also stole 7 bases and struck out only 34 times.



A good argument for the best all-around season of all time.

With all of the analyists out there now, and the information available, you would think that a washed out homer by Stan would have been easily found. That's why I am skeptical that it even happened. I've heard that story since I was a kid though that "if not for a homer lost due to a postponement...". But today I think it was something Bob Broeg put out there to build the legend, nad everyone just accepted it. Sportswriters used to do that sort of thing.

But as you said Jerry, that 1948 season of Musial's was one for the ages. Talk about dominating a league! One of my favorite displays in my "man cave" is a framed autographed August 1948 issue of "The Police Gazette" with Stan on the cover, and the words "Can Stan Musial Swat Cards To Pennant?".

It seems like Adams is going to get his starts at Craig's expense rather than split between Craig and Beltran. That bloody knee thing may have sobered Mike up about putting Craig in RF. If that holds up, there are implications for next year when Taveras is here.

Implications for both of my fantasy teams as well, with Mr. Craig being on them both

The problem is that baseball doesn't keep track of rained-out games (it's easy to look up a rainout, but harder to find out who did what, if anything, before the game was washed out), and the various media sources weren't much help either - there's been quite a search for that game.
