Kruk: "Marlins 3rd best fundamentally sound team"


Accord

Recommended Posts

Bah.. My order of those three.. Cards, Fish, Yanks.. Since when were the Yanks ever fundamentally sound? Can they even bunt? Sacrifice runners over? Steal bases? Pitch? lol

Not to burst your bubble either but since when are the Cards fundamentaly sound this year, they half about don't tell me that lineup bunts better than the Marlins, turns the double play, moves runners over better, thats how the win, STL doesnt need small ball to win games?

I agree - I think the Marlins are a much better fundamentals team than both the Yankees and Cards. In fact, I would rank the Braves and Giants up there too - before Yanks and Cards.

 

Did anyone not gush over that bunt that Lo Duca laid down? How many #3 hitters on either of those clubs can pull that off so effectively?

IMO The Yanks aren't fundamentally sound at all.

The Cards play small ball well when they need it. They don't score 9 runs every game.

BTW Could someone find anywhere that has infield and bunt hits? Marlins would be ahead of the Cards there..

 

I know stats dont exactly tell everything but seriously.. Saying the Cardinals dont play fundamentally sound baseball as good as the Marlins is ridiculous! Go Ahead burst my bubble now.. If you want I could get into the pitching and fielding :lol

The Cardinals are the kings of fundamental baseball, along with the Marlins. They're two teams that can mix Power with speed, hitting clutch extra base hits along with game-winning sac bunts, and turn a double play whenever they need to. The differences between the two teams are extremely noticable, though. The Cards are a home run bashing club that is never out of a game, while the Marlins play small ball and hope that the starting pitchers can come through and pitch a gem. More often than not, it works out for both teams.

Yeah, Giants, Cubs and Yankees fans were that cocky last year too and look what happend to them.? :p

I'm not cocky at all. Nothing matters at this time until the playoffs come. Doesnt matter what we do in the regular season.. All I was pointing out is that the Cardinals arent just a HR hitting team like most think :p

Look back at that series the Marlins and Cards played just after the trade. If I remember correctly, the Cards barely won two of those games - both low scoring wins - and without homeruns. The way the Marlins are playing now, the Cards get swept. The Cards do rely on the homerun for their offense, sorry to 'burst your bubble'. And most of those stats you used are not real indicators of fundamental baseball after all.

Yup. Cards are very fundamentally sound, like I said earlier, but no one reads my posts anyways.

 

I think it gets lost on people that there are more ways to sore runs than hit the ball 500 feet. That's the Yankees' job.

 

The Cards have to be, outside of last year's Marlins, the best base-running (not base-stealing, there's a difference) team I've ever seen.

 

And On the side, I don't take much stock in stats like that because our team did squat first half and now no one wants to face them.

 

Thats about right..
