Episode 76: Seems Like Everyone's Sleeping
Another frustrating week for the Cardinals, culminating in two losses to the Royals and another to Pittsburgh. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) are pretty confounded by it all and don't have the answers. Well, beyond the fact that people should start hitting and doing it consistently. That might help things. Plenty of talk about the unfulfilling offense segues into some disappointing relief work. Greg Holland apparently gives up two runs every time he pitches now. John Brebbia has been struggling. Brett Cecil probably shouldn't be called on to just get lefties out.
With all this depressing news, there is a ray of hope. Well, make that a Reyes. Alex Reyes has dominated throughout his rehab tour and capped it with a mind-boggling outing in Memphis. He's coming. Let's just hope the Cards can score some runs for him.
