With the Cardinals in Wrigley and with "life is like a box of chocolates" Marquis taking the mound, I can’t say I was expecting a W yesterday. But we did get a W and what a W! 6 jacks and a lopsided victory? Seems like the Cards have been on the opposite side of those sort of victories too often this season, so this was some sweet revenge. Thanks to Hit Tracker, here’s the rundown of yesterday’s beatdown. (Not in the order they happened) But first, the Win Probability Graph courtesy of www.fangraphs.com
Ronnie Belliard–True distance of 399 feet, left the yard at 103.5 mph
Gary Bennett- 429 feet, speed 110.3 MPH
Chris Duncan- 421 feet, speed 110.6 mph
Albert Pujols- 450 feet, 115.7 mph!!!! That’s montrous!!
Scott Rolen-403 feet, 105 mph
Preston Wilson (like this pickup so far)-433 feet, 112.6 mph
Put all the Cardinals homeruns together and in distance they equal around half a mile, 2535 feet to be exact.
