VEB After Dark: Cardinals fall to Marlins 5-4

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Here are several things that happened.  I do not know if they will continue to happen, or are harbingers of things that may happen.  But they definitely did happen.

  • Carlos Martinez gave up a 2 run HR on a ball curveball.  Otherwise, he looked good, not walking anyone
  • Peter Bourjos did a thing with his hitting stick!  A player "crossed home plate," as they say.
  • We got to see some highly anticipated players, such as Marco Gonzalez, James Ramsay, Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuk (GRI-chick).  They did things, varying from bad things to good things.
  • We got to see some players that I did not know existed, such as "R. Ortega" and "Easley." These players, despite being less well-known, did things just as surely as the much-hyped prospects did things.
  • Pat Neshek was weird as all get out, as he is wont to do.
  • Patrick Wisdom hit a home run and made things exciting! Then Greg Garcia swung on the first pitch and made things very unexciting.
  • Ty Wigginton.
Now, let's discuss this game, and various other things!
