Two probable 3rd place finishers going at it today.

Yet more bizarre lack of fundamentals in the first – ran themselves out of a rally altogether.

Once again one person has a decent day and the rest of the offense craps the bed.
People hate that I feel we’re not a playoff team,and its only spring training, but when are we going to see real progress? The offense has not been there all spring and that was suppose to be the off season priority. Its clear to me thus far the failure to address it will be our downfall this season. Prove me wrong Cards,….please!

How much longer can or will the Cards go with Mabry , the offense has been awful under him?
