Here is what went down yesterday at Viva El Birdos:
- What went wrong in Adam Wainwright’s rough first start?: I analyzed Wainwright’s uninspiring performance against the Diamondbacks.
- Did you know about our Fanpost section? - A Hunt and Peck:
This is some next level inception type stuff— stlCupofJoe (@stlCupofJoe) April 10, 2018
On a more serious note, I completely agree with everything Heather said about fanposts. They are a great opportunity to get exposure and hone your skills as a writer. If not for me giving fanposting a try, I wouldn’t be sitting here as a member of the VEB staff. Need proof that anybody can and will improve with practice? Exactly 14 months ago, I published an objectively terrible fanpost that Andy Schrag called “a pretty unilluminating piece of analysis, unfortunately.”
UPDATE: Did I say “likely no punishment” because I totally meant just “Punishment likely”... Likely no punishment for Yadier Molina after Sunday’s fracas - A Hunt and Peck: Both Molina and Diamondbacks manager Torey Luvollo were suspended for their roles in Sunday’s skirmish. Molina is appealing his suspension and played last night.
- Game 11 of 162: Cardinals vs. Brewers: Speaking of last night, here is the game thread from yesterday’s game. (And a successful rally thread)
- Daily Farm Report: Checking Out Monday’s Action: Andrew St. John recaps Monday’s action in Cardinals farmland.
- Carpenter hits walkoff homer on a cold night in 5-3 win over Brewers: stlcardsfan4 recaps a wild 11-inning victory for the Cardinals.
Have a good one,
