  • Bo Hart\ Cody Mckay\ and this season

    Tony, at some point this season - maybe in a long extra inning game will use Mckay, Hart, an outfielder, and a pitcher in some type of four man switch.

    Mckay will start the inning as a pitcher with Bo catching. With no one on base the knuckleball just really needs to be retrieved and not caught. If someone does get on, Tony will brink in a pitcher, move Mckay behind the plate, and send Bo to either the outfield or second and take out that player. He will do the same thing as long as McKay is effective in any other innings depending upon when the real pitcher is scheduled to bat. Just my thinking.

        Nope - but man McKay was very good in his one outing - they almost have to try it again.

          I always thought that Hart was the catcher... odd.

            I don't understand why Hart was brought up. You already have 2 2b on the roster in Womack and Anderson. You also have Luna who is an infielder by trade. Why wasn't an outfielder brought up to take Cedeno's spot?

            I'm telling you, having an infielder in the outfield will cost the Cardinals a game somewhere down the line.

              I thought about this more.

              I'm still confused.

                Look, folks it's simple.

                We brought up the guy who was the second best player in spring training behind McKay.

                Saw McKay play 3rd base Friday--nifty play letting that grounder eat him up and deflecting it to Renteria for the game ending out. His father was beaming with pride.

                Heard Hrabosky say that Cody is almost like family to La Russa.

                  That pitching stint alone was justification of his inclusion.

                    i don't understand it either. but obviously, TLR has some fascination with Hart. i said the other day that i bet he'd be called up before the end of the month.

                      Kaiser,

                      Apparently TLR has fished with Cody's dad in the past. That's why he is on this team.

                        FAR:

                        Fishing buddies? I knew it.

                        By the way, for those interested, McKay is supposed to start at catcher tomorrow, per TLR on the radio yesterday.

                        So the apparent plan to have Matheny catch 162 games has been altered.

                          If Daaave's son is catching then who's pitching in relief?

                          Bo?

                          I wish I weren't confused about stuff.

                            I thought it was funny the way he just nonchalantly trotted off the field as soon as he saw it go straight to Edgar.

                            Like Pee-Wee Herman, "I meant to do that."

                              The way I got it figured CG it goes like this.

                              Cody Mckay is the pitcher and Bo is catching to start an inning. If a runner with speed gets on base, the Cardinals would then move Mckay behind the plate to catch, Bo would go to second or more likely the outfield and a real pitcher would then come in and you take the outfielder out of the game. Once a guy gets on base, Mckay probably doesn't have a pick off move and with a 54 mile per hour pitch, stealing would be very easy. To say nothing of knuckle balls bouncing in the dirt and allowing the runner to advance. Hopefully the real pitcher gets out of the inning with no damage.

                              The next inning you could then start again with Bo behind the plate - McKay pitching - and the pitcher that came in last inning playing the outfield. Switch the three around again if somebody gets on base.
