Was holding out hope there might be a way forward, but today’s loss means season is over. 54 games left and 5 games behind, and must move ahead of Cubs and Brewers to win the Div. Wild card not an option. Only hope now is that they can be a spoiler at the end of the season for the Cubs, either beat them in the final series or lose to the Brewers late Sep. Cards will end up 3rd barring a season ending injury on Thames or Broxton.
This is what it looks like when management over-promises and players under-perform. Grichuk, Piscotty, Fowler, Carpenter never played to potential, let alone the bullpen. Starting pitching only bright spot, but they are above average at best.
Maybe what’s most disappointing is management seems to be in denial about this team’s ability, or they think we’re stupid.
