42 was pretty good for the Cardinals tonight.

True, every player was wearing number 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson, but in way, it’s still true. This was a dominant team effort by the Cardinals against the division leaders on the road.

Shelby Miller went 6 innings, struck out 7 and tallied his first win of the season. Mark Ellis made his Cardinals debut and had 2 RBIs. Matt Adams continued his early season hot hitting, belting 2 more hits to raise his average to .370. Jhonny Peralta (2 hits/1 home run) and Allen Craig (RBI) seem to be making better contact.

Neshek, Siegrist and Maness all pitched scoreless/hitless/walkless frames in the 7th, 8th & 9th respectively.

Oh, and somebody better check on the structural integrity of that center field buttress

In 2011, Columbia Pictures released ‘Moneyball’.

The movie, starring Brad Pitt, was based on Michael Lewis’ 2003 book, which was based on the Oakland A’s 2002 season. It has grossed over 110 million dollars and was nominated for 6 Oscars (Best Actor, Best Picture).

People, I promise you there was a time when making a Hollywood blockbuster about sabermetrics sounded ridiculous.

Anyway, during the Cardinals telecast on Tuesday night, Rick Horton had an interesting non-sequitur.

He was talking about something (male selfies, I believe) when the conversation switched over to the Cardinals hitting coach John Mabry. Horton mentioned that Mabry turned down a role in Moneyball. And went right into an antidote about Mark Ellis accepting his platoon role with the Cardinals.

I was at the gym. So wait, what?
