Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

This article pretty much sums it up. This team is a mess and has been an under achiever under Matheny. Ortiz: It's unacceptable — Cardinals have lost their Way under Matheny http://www.stltoday.com/sports/columns/jose-de-jesus-ortiz/ortiz-it-s-unacceptable-cardinals-have-lost-their-way-under/article...

Re: Game 91: Cardinals @ Pirates, 7/16/17, 12:35 pm

Cecil got a chance to be closer in Toronto and stunk it up there too. Rosenthal and Oh can't be trusted either. Three highest paid relievers in the Cardinals pen can't be trusted to save a game. And I doubt we can put Siegrist on that list either at #4. Meanwhile Tuivailala has spent three or four ...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

One of two things are at play regarding Grichuk. Either the big league hitting instructors have no idea how to coach him, or he's a modern day, more athletic version of Mike Laga. Either option is not good. It's very disappointing I was hoping he'd be able to turn things around. I don't know how MM ...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

I don't think this team is significantly worse if you remove Carpenter from the equation. If we were an AL team, I could live with him. But since he offers nothing defensively, and he has no speed, he doesn't seem irreplaceable to me. If he was a no doubt 30+ homer a year guy that would be one thing...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

I think Mo will act as a very responsive sounding board to Girsch at the deadline. its going to be curious to see what direction they take regarding Lynn and Oh. I think there is a tremendous market for both. A market that should be able to bring back some much needed, corner infield or outfield dep...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

Piscotty has a long term deal like Wong. Piscitty has been terrible this season in every aspect of the game. Yes, he has the situation with his Mom. But as a professional, he's gotta figure out a way to compartmentalize. If it were my call, I'd ship Piscotty to Memphis so he can get his stuff togeth...

Piscotty = Craig

Disappointing bust. Bad defense, bad baserunning, bad bat.

Re: Game 68: Cardinals @ Orioles, 6/18/17, 12:35 pm

Apparently Matheny was on KMOX this morning giving all sorts of excuses for the team's poor play. Shadows and Waino taking responsibility when it isn't his fault. Wow... The lack of accountability is killing this team. The bogus excuses and the half hearted pep talks aren't enough. Some of these gu...

Re: Game 63: Brewers @ Cardinals, 6/13/17, 7:15

It's stunning! Matt Carpenter is a totally different player when he's hiring lead off versus any place else in the order. I think they need to have him leading off from now until the end of his contract.

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

Maybe a scout saw something in him that they believe can be fixed by the Cardinals coaches. But if you see a guy that may be able to help you and it costs you almost nothing to get him, there's no harm in taking a flyer. It's not like we have a bullpen that is performing.

Re: Game 60: Phillies @ Cardinals, 6/10/17, 1:15

Wong goes 2-for-4 today. Is now 4-for-6 since coming off the DL. He's hit .321/.421/.464 since April 19th (returning after the Bronx sweep). Still batting 7th or 8th. Something interesting I found that completely demonstrates how certain players get treated differently (yes, I'm aware Carpenter's O...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

Peralta's a bum, always has been. Good riddance. This sums up all my assumptions to go along with how little respect he's shown his team by always being woefully out of shape: " Peralta had also declined to take reps at first base to increase his versatility" ".He didn't see himself ...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

Matheny has had issues with game management his entire managerial career. In the case of a manager, I would not get too hung up on his past. The manager is responsible for dealing with thugs such as base running and bad defense. Especially if it's a constant issue. This team has the same bad habits ...
