Mt. Lou is gurgling

And who could blame him?

The meltdown I am witnessing v. Fla. (Thurs.) is inexcusable.  I wonder if we might have to bludgeon teams all year 10-4 because our guys lose their nuts and play at 80% speed when the game gets tight?  Are they too old?

I remarked to my freinds that I would have dealt some of the vets in the offseason (I won't identify them here b/c I abhor 20/20 doucheba*s).  The fact remains that this team is not fundamentaly sound, and it's a shame, b/c I thought they were prepared for a charge towards the World Series.

Lost in the 96 win seasons is Hendry's awful offseason '08 - '09.  And I am a Milton Bradley fan, so not bitching about him here.  I would have preferred to dangle Derek Lee and for Joey Votto and pitching prospects, or line up FA Mike Jacobs.  Lee's a wonderful guy and good glove, but the framework of this team starts and ends with Soriano and Ramirez (position players).

The rotation still has potential, I think they pitch like a bunch of bulls (good).  

Thanks for reading.
