Cardinals Start Whining

Jim Edmonds had the first two-error game of his career today in the Cardinals' loss to the Brewers, and he blamed everything but himself:

Edmonds, who has won six consecutive Gold Gloves since joining the team in 2000 and has eight overall, committed fielding errors in the second and fifth. He complained Wednesday night that he was having trouble judging balls in the new ballpark because the crack of the bat is not as pronounced as it was at the old Busch.

On Thursday he said the decorative pattern cut into the grass can make balls behave erratically.

The pattern cut in the grass????? Now I've heard everything.

And Carlos Lee, who's not exactly known as a great fielder, didn't seem to have any trouble fielding at the new Busch Stadium:

Lee leaped high above the wall to snare Juan Encarnacion's bid for a two-run homer for the first out in the bottom of the 10th. Then he caught Edmonds' drive to the wall off Jorge De La Rosa (1-0) with runners on first and third for the third out, banging into the padding after the grab.

The Cardinals are self-destructing.

Good.
