9 road games 9 ?, because who knows what you’ll get from this team.

Oh, did you see Jen’s tweet? Reyes now part of the starting rotation. ‘Bout time. Altho’ pre-game…they did say Leake would probably be out only a week or so.

She also tweeted this – good grief Brayan Pena trying to work his way back onto Major League club to be a threat at the plate:

I have to assume that despite Pena’s rehab progress? The Cards won’t realistically consider Brayan for spot on the active roster. Whether it’s now or in the future.
If Yadi’s in Pena’s corner and pushin’ it? They may just be saying Pena might return for Yadi’s benefit.
That article, keep in mind…is only Pena’s perspective & what his thoughts are.
I have a med background, and there’s gotta’ be a doc SOMEWHERE, who told the Cards’ management that a guy who’s 5′ 9″, 240 lbs and 34 y/o is NOT a good bet as an effective baseball player, much less an always-on-his-knees catcher. The odds are simply NOT there.

Whatever the outcome? CMart has 11 strike-outs after 5. Awesome!


OK, Mr Cryptic. Now w????
