Saturday: which is the make-up game? 


Can someone tell me which game on Saturday is the make-up game with the Cubs from that series earlier in the season?  I have a bet riding on its outcome. tongue

The first one is the makeup game.

Edit:  I see that Domeboys in his game thread has it as the nightcap.  I went by the calendar on Cubs.com, which says that the 1:15 game is the makeup game from 5/14.

The answer is easy, if you have the original schedule on hand.  What time was the original single-game on Saturday scheduled for?  If it was an afternoon game, then the evening game is the makeup.  If it was the evening game, then the afternoon game is the makeup.

Yes, the first one is the makeup game.

(I merged this with the Saturday game thread. No reason for this to be a separate topic.)

You act surprised that Masterson is starting. It is not a change. Guessing you knew that but just wanted to rant. Mission accomplished.

It will be interesting to see if Masterson abandons the windup, and if he does, whether it will make a difference.  It was reported that was under consideration.  He was pretty good last year so there is a chance he could be tweeked into being useful for the end of this year.

Someone will dump a bunch of money on him this winter and he'll be gone. Think Edwin Jackson.

Not sure why you have to refer to Masterson as a "piece of crap". He has been bad so far we all know that. So they took a gamble and it looks that is not going to work out.  That doesn't make him a "piece of crap".

Obviously, MM likes to give games away for the express purpose of pissing you off.

We aim to have intelligent discussion about the Cardinals here. This dialogue is far from the ideal.

Marco Gonzales has been pulled from his start tonight for Memphis. No word yet that he is Saturday's addition, let alone the starter, but that is where my money would be placed.

Edit: This is now official.

The Masterson game is almost a sure loss but Gonzalez actually pitched fairly well when he was here.  If we could somehow score five runs we might have a chance in game two.  biggrin

We catch another break late last night out west.  The Giants pound the Brewers 13-2.  Milwaukee has lost three of four on their west coast trip.  Sad thing is, we have now lost three in a row and cant gain any ground.  We need a late season winning streak, and the sooner the better.

The Cards pitching is better.  Offensively there is no contest, sadly.

The Cards pitching is better?  I'd say that's in doubt too.

It certainly wasn't better last night.
