Fluke or For Real?

The offense looked like something other than sleepwalking in yesterday’s match against the Giants.  The question is was that a one time fluke or was it the outbreak they needed to start consistently pushing runs across the plate?  Today’s game just might tell us as the Redbirds open up a 3 game series versus Arizona.

David Freese especially had a banner day.  He went 3 for 4, smacking in RBIs every chance he got.  And to cap it off, he added a solo shot for his first home run of the year.  All in all, the ‘Birds scored 6 runs in 11 hits, which is drastically more than they have been doing and easily at least what this offense is capable of on a regular basis.

When you have guys like Pujols, Holliday, Berkman, Rasmus and Freese, you expect to score runs.  Bottom line.  I should also say Kyle Loshe has really been quite good.  Certainly much better than I expected him to be.  Who would have thought pre-season that we would love the pitching and watching a struggling offense?  Not I.

So what do you think?  Will the Cardinals continue to break out and score runs?  Will Pujols figure out how to get above .200 before April is over?  Post below!

Fun to watch your team score runs,

    I am still rooting for the $300,000,000 man to get above .150 and out-hit McClellan. I sure hope I am wrong, but Albert might should have signed before this season.

    Yeah, who would have thought at the beginning of the season that we’d have a game where McClellan was the hero and Albert was still hitting .150? His swing looks a little off to me and I can’t help but think, no matter what he says, that this contact is on his mind.

    It’s nice to see the other boys pick up the slack (especially Berkman’s two dingers last night) because if Albert can get right, this offense could be unstoppable.
