The Cardinals Organization is Sooo Frustrating
Sorry St. Louis Cardinals fans…I need to vent for a sec….and is there really a better spot than here? So…the Cards are in the Bottom of the 5th at Busch Stadium against possibly the best left-handed pitcher in baseball, Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight.
The another one of the Cardinals starting pitchers, Kyle Lohse gets rocked. Lohse goes 3 innings and allows 8 runs – all earned. Way to run out there and earn that $12+ Million Dollar salary buddy. Oh yeah…get this….Kyle gets to continue pitching for the Cardinals on the same salary next year too. Seriously, how many organizations would pay Lohse $7 Million a year – no less 12 Mil??? And the same goes for Jake Westbrook. Are there any franchises that would have paid Westbrook $8 Million a year or more for this?? Even when Lohse was a free agent 3 seasons ago – what were the Redbirds thinking? You don’t pay a guy $1 Million A MONTH on potential…you make him EARN it. What have either of these guys earned in their careers besides an early shower?? Yes…I know who their manager is….yes I know he likes his face time so he pulls his starters out 6 innings earlier so the nation can see the ego that is Tony Larussa.
Dear Bill DeWitt (Cardinals Owner), if you do not clean house at the end of this year – that’s fine. But – PLEASE – and I am BEGGING here – PLEASE do not allow GM Tony Larussa and the puppet, John Mozeliak to sign anymore borderline 5th starters for $8-$12 Million dollars a year. This is insanity. Why not give Mitchell Boggs a shot at the rotation. Someone – anyone at AAA or AA can be better than what these 2 borderline Major League starters can do – especially at that salary.
