    Woodford looked really good yesterday. I did watch the game and his off speed stuff was great. So he is doing what OM wanted him to. It was a very strange situation that even the game announcers commented on: they had runners on 1st and 2nd, with 1 out, and the 1st baseman was playing up in the grass for some reason..? Of course then a grounder right towards 1st and he can’t get it… unless he is playing in a normal 1st base position off the bag and back, then its probably a double play. Bottom line is Woodford was in command of the game for 6 inngs. just bad defense on 1 play.

    Its really a kick in the rear for the fans and for the guys who are getting older. We all want to get that championship, but will not be done with this guy. STL has the player pieces in place, they just need someone who knows how to use them. You spend all this money on top notch players at 1st and 3rd, then bring on a second rate, inexperienced manager…doesn’t make much sense, does it.???

    bccran. Totally agree with your outlook on the mgr spot. OM should not have been given this job as he obviously was not ready.. he like players do, should be in the minors learning how to manage. This is simply too much for him to handle. The Mets did it right bringing in Skip; he would have this team playing at a much higher level and would have added several wins with better managing. OM, other than he is controlled like a puppet by the puppet masters, he is not a very good mgr..now. he needs time to get better and learn.

    This makes total sense!

    Maybe Hicks should be in the bullpen, along with Woodford. That would give you Helsley, Gallegos, Cabrera, and Hicks to close games out. Woodford in middle relief.

    STLcard, appreciate your input, but you have to agree almost every year he has gotten better. Then he has a very good 2021, and very good 2022 spring, and has pitched well when given a chance. So why the !?? would he not at least be getting an opportunity to pitch now, when he has clearly done better than 5-6 of the current pitchers on the roster..??

    Reed and Willie, I am like many other fans very much in agreement with you. Lets only hope management gets there head out of their a–, and get Woodford back up where he belongs..!

    It’s hard to say Woodford wouldn’t do well as a starter since he has had zero chances this year. Plus all his starts last year had been good ones. Plus whenever he pitched this year he’s done well.

    This is really, really sad. Such an unprofessional display of management. Jake is a very easy going type guy and certainly hasn’t mouthed off to anyone; this is simply a fact that the FO and/or Mgr. are in denial on his pitching ability, which is much better than several guys on the current staff.

    Palante did not look very good last night. His curveball wasn’t working very well and fastball location all over the place, maybe he and Jack should go down to AAA and work on them.

    Agree Willie. He would be better off working it out in AAA. Bring up Woody in the meantime and get him some work.

    Cards FO. If your not going to use his talents, do the right thing and let him play for another team…maybe the Marlins or Rays.!

    I have followed the Cards for years and never, never has a player been so disrespected as Woodford has.
    The FO needs to make a move, a professional move not a personal one; If your not going to give him a chance then trade, release or DFA the guy. He is way too good to be rotting in Memphis. There are several teams out there that could really use him; heck, the Cards could use him, if they just would.

    Acquisitions needed? Good, trade Woodford so he can go help another team immediately!

    Woodford has been sent all over the place this year and not given 1 start. Yet he is the most qualified pitcher to start and he has had success. Sure he gave up 3 runs his last outing, as he gets flown in and then is forced to pitch as soon as he lands, really! Ridiculous. Plus even with his last appearance his numbers are still far better than half the dam staff.

    OH ya, Woodford needs to work on his slider… sure. bs. Maybe Verhagen should go to aaa and work on his changeup with McFadden and Wittgren.

    Liberatore needs more seasoning in AAA. McFarland needs to go down to AAA and find himself. Whitley ditto. Get Woodford back up for spot starts and relief. Maybe Rondon as well.
    They can’t keep throwing these guys out on the mound when all they do is give up runs..!!

    Totally agree with you Willie. Woodford is certainly getting hosed this year. I hope for his sake that he gets traded to another team that will utilize him; thats probably about 29 other teams.!

    what is going on in St.Louis? I thought Marmol said that roster/playing time would be directly related to performance on the field.? Maybe not…
