Cards looking better! Thank you Jaime! Good job Defense! Need a set lineup. Rosie, just throw strikes! Trust yer stuff!!! GO NATS!!!!!

Playing musical chairs with the line-up may possibly be a factor in the Cards’ error dept, or not. Who can say for sure. But then again, it does give MM the ability to keep the hottest bats in the line-up…right?
Jaime definitely rocked it Thurs afternoon! And gawd yes…GO NATS!

Liriano is up next and he always seems to have our number. And if it’s line up changes that have contributed to the 29 errors thus far, then we have the wrong players. That can’t and never should be an excuse. They’re “pros” and need to deal with it………they get paid enough to.
