Only a short 3 weeks ago all seemed right with the world. Our Cardinals held the best record in the NL and my Milwaukee Bucks looked unbeatable and poised to win it all. A big part of our Cardinals future hopes and plans were bursting upon the scene in Peoria, ready to wreck havoc on Midwest League pitching. How could things have possibly all gone so wrong in such a short period of time?
Winning took a holiday in the #stlcards farm system on Monday, as Memphis was swept, Springfield and Palm Beach were off, and Peoria was rained out. Player of the Day Tommy Edman homered in G1 and played CF in G2, his first pro appearance in the outfield. https://t.co/k2tLiRLBW9pic.twitter.com/GxCySj2pNf
