Yadier Molina not tired………JUST BORED?

Yadier Molina and STL Cardinal’s manager Mike Matheny had a bit of a difference of opinion recently.   Molina was held out of a game…….in place of Carson Kelly; some say because Matheny said “Yadi looked tired”.   Matheny said, “he never said tired”.   Truth is you have to rest your catcher once in a while, and Kelly needs some playing time.   Molina took exception, “I am not tired, I train to play 174 games” (which would include play-off and World Series games).

I was at last evenings Arizona D-Backs/Cardinal game.  Yadi may not be tired, but he looks bored.   The Cardinals got spanked, because of sloppy play and the offense could not score.   This version of the “Cardinal Way” is boring, sloppy and don’t seem to grasp basic fundamentals of how to play the game.

There were fireworks following the game, which drew more applause from 50% of the fans that stayed to watch than there was in the game.   Fireworks outside the confines of the stadium, not even a spark from the team inside!    Team?   They don’t look like a team, not a good one anyway.   Time for some major changes!

FISHING IN THE HEAT: ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY


Brothers and Sisters it is HOT!   For the last few days we have had triple digit heat here in Missouri (St. Charles MO).    I wanted to go fishing this morning before it got too hot…but couldn’t get up early enough as I stayed up to 2:00 am watching repeats of the Jason Bourne movies; one after the other in order!

Yesterday it got up to 104 degrees.  It’s supposed to get up to 105 today, then cool down to 96 for a high tomorrow (Sunday).   Maybe I hit the river early tomorrow while its only in the 80s until about 11:00 am   The fish will be deep, trying to stay cool!

St. Charles (St. Louis) heat with high humidity.   Been bringing in the Husky (Sky) and she is grateful!

Stay cool and have a great weekend.   Gotta go do some research on whats biting on what bait/lures in this heat.   Bass?

CARDINALS VS. NY METS

Friday night and Saturday afternoon went to the Cards/Mets game in St. Louis.   We sat next to 3 Mets fans on Friday and there were about 200 Met fans in the right field section on Saturday.   Good, clean fun!   A little bit of back and forth rival bashing from both sides, but all in fun!   Its not quite like it was when these two teams were in the same National League division, but it was a good reminder of the past.

We then went to Ball Park Village (directly across the street from the stadium) following the game for a couple of beers; Met fans were enjoying the Village with Cardinal fans there, probably for the first time.

The weekend series is tied at one game apiece.  Today will be the rubber game!   Go Cards!

STL. CARDINALS HONOR MILITARY

I attended this game last evening as my son was given a couple of seats in a suite.  He could not attend so his wife and my oldest grandson went in his place.  My significant other/common law wife by now…….set in great seats just beyond the left field wall, a section over just inside the foul pole.

The St. Louis Cardinals are a class act organization.   Friday night was Military Appreciation Night, with a theme of “This One’s for you”.   Military personnel and families were at the game, some of the families without their a husband, father, mother, daughter or brother, still serving in another land.

I was a bit disappointed that more families and military personnel were not introduced to the fans than there was.   I thought they could have done more in between innings, rather than having the usual game Kiss Cam and other games; but I also realize it can be difficult to arrange.   Appreciate what you get, the Cardinals didn’t have to do it at all.   But, that’s not who they are; we are, Cardinal Nation.  Thank You!

Copperheads are abundant in Missouri.   They can be found just about anywhere, they especially like rocky areas, shallow creeks (rocky creek beds).   These guys are not afraid of entering your back yard, coil up on your porches.   Be very careful playing golf, don’t rustle around in the high grass or reach down into the edge of the woods to pick up a ball.  You might get an unwanted surprise.
