Cardinal Talk: KXnO FOX Sports Radio: World Series elimination time near

St. Louis Cardinals-focused chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.

On Wednesday afternoon, I joined Jim Brinson on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in our regular series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.”

Our conversation was about what St. Louis Cardinals fans hope will be the final two games of the 2013 World Series, set in Boston. Of course, for that to occur, Michael Wacha and his teammates need to find a way to outscore the Red Sox in Wednesday night’s Game 6.

Cardinals followers in central Iowa can again catch St. Louis Cardinals radio broadcasts on KXnO (or on WHO when football programming conflicts) as well as my regular segments each week throughout the season, either over the air or via streaming. Or, if you miss it live, you can always catch the replay right here at The Cardinal Nation blog.

    It was over as soon as Victorino knocked in 2 and the ump tacked on another. No contest. But somebody had to lose.
    In any event, it was a great season with lots of positive developments. Congratulations to DeWitt, Mo, Yadi, Carlos, and the whole gang.

    A few weaknesses have become apparent. Mo will turn his mind to trying to remedy these over the winter.

    It was a good season.It was inexcusable to lose by hitting so bad.Mo really has some tune up work to do.Fix SS,CF and 3B.RH bench bat,upgrade the bench and improve team speed.Of course playing the WS with 22 players was beyond stupid and was pointed out by many.

      It is Mo’s responsibility to provide 25 players capable of making a meaningful contribution to a competitive team. That he failed to do so is inescapable.

      The fact is, there really wasn’t anybody else anywhere in the organization who could have been added and had an impact. The fact that there was not is evidence of piss poor planning.

      • Bw52 says:

        Why not Rob Johnson ? He could have been backup C and Tony Cruz could have been available as PH (a role in which he had some success).Even Adron Chambers could have been a pinch-runner or Defensive replacement instead of having 2 guys who where not used.

          We had some alternatives, but I don’t think any of them were slam-dunk improvements over what we had. Chambers might have been a nice addition with his experience and speed, but the club wanted to get Wong more experience (that he got in Game 4 unfortunately) and felt they needed more IF help.

          I read a random tweet from some sports writer that claimed there was a reason for Miller’s “status” on the roster and that more info would be coming out soon. If (a big hypothetical if) a trade had been worked out prior to the series, is there a reason to keep him on the roster?

    Can’t complain about them being NL champs. They did fall apart during the Series, but it happens. The team is in great shape to compete just as strongly for years to come, so I’m still happy.

    Cards declined Westbrooks option today.Chris Perez was released by the Indians today also.
