  • Mark Mulder...let's get him pumped thread...

    I wasnt the biggest fan of the trade as I really liked Haren and Kiko (not to mention the all-world prospect Barton), but Mulder really came around and improved after the Break.

    Also, tonight, I really liked listening to him when he was wired in the dug out talking to Soup. Discussing the move to first and batting. I thought it was pretty cool seeing as I have never really heard him say much.

    Well...Mr. Mulder, tomorrow is your time. You will never feel more love from fans when you come up big tommorow.

    CARDS Q-AND-A: Game 2 starter Mark Mulder

    Cards starter Mark Mulder said Wednesday he won't let the line drive that hit his pitching arm affect his game.

    Cardinals Game 2 starter Mark Mulder talked to reporters at a Wednesday news conference. Here are some highlights:

    On how his arm feels: “I felt pretty good yesterday, not great, but today is probably the first day where I have absolutely no discomfort, no tightness, no nothings. Besides just the general soreness in the spot that I got hit . . . but that has nothing to do with how I throw the ball.”

    On whether getting hit by the line drive will affect him: “No, that would be pitching scared. I’m not going to do that. If another one comes back at me, another one comes back at me. You know, I kind of field my position pretty well. Like I said, I’ve never really been hit like that before. It was just dead on, a full blow.

    “I can field my position. If I start worrying about being ready for a line drive too soon, that means I’m not finishing my pitches and I’ve got to be able to do that first.”

    On whether he is concerned about the disruption of his work routine: “I guess I had not even thought of that. That’s the furthest thing from my mind. Whether or not this happened, I’d still be throwing this day, so it would have been the same routine, same everything. I still would have thrown on the side the same day. So really, to me, there was no difference.”

    How much is postseason success mental, and how much is luck: “I think it’s just playing good at the right time. I know when I was in Oakland, things always kind of happened for us not to win a series. With this team we just got up 2-0 and finished it. No messing around, we came out and scored a bunch of runs early in the first game got us a lead. Maybe it’s just different teams and experience.”

    On his excitement over reaching the NLCS: “Obviously, it’s awesome. I’m as excited as I can be and so is everyone else. Not one of us took it for granted. Nobody from last year took for granted that they would be here again. We all play hard and this is what we play for. We got after it, you know, those first three games. We really played good baseball and it was fun to watch.”

    Comparing this staff to the great A’s staffs he was on: “I think it’s more complete. I know we have a better bullpen here. We have five good starters and somebody probably isn’t going to start. We have five guys that we have confidence in and no matter whether I would have had to have been pushed back or whoever would have taken my spot or whatever it is, it’s a complete and full pitching staff. It’s been a bit part of our success this year.”

            Well..just finished a smoke..and started thinking...

            We've been able to hit fairly well of Oswalt...

            Mulder..hoping like hell he can throw something similar to that complete game gem he threw against Huston this year.

            Keep it low in the zone..and throw strikes.

                Thanks for the article.

                I thought Carpenter was off the charts tonight - he looked like a man on a mission. They had Mulder miked and he was very into the game - not the stoner dude that he has been portrayed as.

                It may be possible that these guys have been saving something in the last month for now - let's hope.
