    Sounds like Mozeliak is growing more and more frustrated by the day. I believe Matheny will be gone by the AS break.

    My Dad expects it to happen any day. Probably just wishful thinking, but he claims his friends in St Louis are hearing that.

    Pitch recognition is just terrible. Whatever they're training/practicing isn't working. Not sure how much a hitting coach really matters, but Mabry needs to go.

    Wasting these starts by Carlos is getting pretty old.

    The crowd at that game today is why Cardinals fans really are the best fans in baseball. Not sure any other team in the MLB could draw a crowd like that for a 2:00 weekday game on June 1st.

    Eh there are several.

    However, some of my best childhood memories are of my dad surprising me and pulling me out of school to go to thursday afternoon games on getaway day

    Just something that stuck out to me when watching the highlights. Seemed like the crowd was bigger than it normally is for day games during the week.

    Molina's AB in the 8th with the bases loaded was pathetic.

    I kind of get a kick out of all the hair pulling about Matheny on twitter. Don't get me wrong, he sucks, but the front office has let the team down just as much as he has. Matheny has just taken old, rotting chicken and make chicken shit out of it.

    Look at the last 4-5 years and think of the guys brought up through the farm system who have been only serviceable or better.

    Diaz

    Yeah, Reyes got hurt but that's still inexcusable. The core of the team got old and they have done a shit job of replacing it. We've even struggled to bring up any effective bull pen guys.

    I didn't watch the game but was Lynn pulled because Matheny or was there a valid reason?

    Firing Matheny would be the only thing that would make me that happy. If that's what was happening I think it would have been leaked out by now.

    Wong is back, so maybe they're releasing Peralta, but idk why that would necessitate a presser.

    Probably just firing an assistant like Mabry. In other words, nothing will change.

    I like the implications from Bernie that this maybe means Mo is getting behind Shildt to put pressure on Matheny. We could do much worse than putting Shildt in the manager role for a rebuild.

    Fryer is trash, .191 for a backup catcher isn't acceptable, drop him and pick up someone else
