Thought I'd try and "start" one of these cool threads....

I'm praying that Rusch doesn't get steamrolled tonight... Unforuntate, God answers my prayers with health, but not victories for my favorite sports teams...

Cardinals 15 Brewers 4

Rusch 1.2 IP 11H 9R 9 ER 4 BB 1K

6/20/03...
The Milwaukee Brewers have placed LHP Glendon Rusch on waivers....

Your line for Rusch is pretty accurate, but I think he'll make it into the 3rd inning. Props to GL!
I'm certainly not more qualified than Ned to run a club, but his insistence on keeping Rusch in the rotation is easily one of the most unbelievable managerial strategies in recent memory.
Certainly, the team is going nowhere, but they do show signs of being competitive from time to time. With Rusch out there, it's a guaranteed shellacking. What's the point?!
There's no way there isn't someone in the system, somewhere, who can give them a better chance to compete than GL.

I just hope Glendon keeps us in the game for a little while. That is all I hope for. Just long enough for us to get some offense in and then go to the bullpen. Praise the lord if he can stay out there longer than that though.

I wonder what the over/under is whether Rusch's 7.77 ERA will go down or up. As I showed in a thread the other day, remarkably his ERA goes up with just about every start.

It's a sad state of affairs when we have to trot this bozo out again.

The only reason I have high hopes for the game tonight is that St. Louis is putting someone on the mound that has been almost as bad as Rusch lately. Simontacchi's ERA over his last three starts is 7.50. Granted, it's not a Rusch-like 9.77, but it's up there. This will probably be a shoot-out, and if either one of these guys make it past the fourth inning, I'll be amazed. If the Brewers can get into the Card's pen early, then we stand a chance.

I'm more interested on the over/under on whether St. Louis retaliates for Tino's plunking last night.

Thoughts? I just hope nobody gets hurt.

I'm sure Sexson will get hit at some point tonight. He seems to be a favorite target for retaliation. Should be interesting!

LOL, maybe Glendon will retaliate and get suspended for a week. Might be the best thing for him. Image If anybody gets hit, I hope it's Tino again... I just can't get over how lame he acted last night.

Whether you like LaRussa or not, he always has a chip on his shoulder and so do his teams it seems. I hadn't thought about it until just now but you can probably take it to the bank that a Brewer will get popped.

I couldn't get over Daron Sutton stating how Tino was one of the "gentlemen of the game" as he's on TV dropping F-bombs one after another.

I think Tino just needs a hug.

Also remember, earlier this year the Cardinals were peeved when the Rockies AT COORS FIELD were stealing bases ahead by 5 or 6 runs in the middle innings. Like you never see 6 run leads evaporate in that launching pad. The Rockies should have agreed to quit stealing bases as long as the Cardinals agreed to stop trying to hit home runs.

Curious,

Alright, I can understand not wanting to start Matt Ford, but for Bill Schroeder to say there is no other option for another starter is insane. No one in AAA? How about Travis Miller?

I can't watch Glendon Rusch anymore.

I'm sick of this this crap. If your hoping for lightning in a bottle, bring up Pasqual from AAA. If not, bring up Dave Burba.....Glendon, you are awful!!!!!! He lets them bat through the order in the 1st inning, pathetic.

Rusch is a very valuable player in our quest for a good draft pick next year.

That was flat out unacceptable from Glendon. Even Ned Yost can't spin that into a positive.

I'm not one to panic, but it's the middle of June and there's not even a hint of improvement. If the Brewers have no faith in their players at AAA, then give Jamey Wright a call. He can't be any worse.
