The Cardinals lost many games and won several close games discourtesy of bad pitching and runs not batted in.

Pitching coach Derek Lilliquist and bullpen coach Blaise Ilsley are not returning. Their contracts were not renewed.

The Cardinals have released relief pitcher Trevor Rosenthal.

Cardinals fans can rejoice. Rosenthal has been on the decline by pitching bad, blowing up late to lose games, and struggling with injuries. If he recovers from Tommy John, he may be able to find a gig in the minor leagues.

I just need a little humor for this offseason.

So here goes......

New Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas earned his nickname by eating a lizard before a game | MLB.com

Maybe the Cardinals just need to be lizard-free next season.

Default 2018: 0-0

Pending a physical they have signed former Royals and Rockies closer Greg Holland to a 1 year $14 million deal. Pretty good get for that bullpen who start the season with new acquisition Luke Gregorson on the DL. Carlos Martinez starts against Noah Syndergaard in what should be one of the better pitching matchups on paper.

Default 0-1

Cards 4 @ Mets 9.

What a colossal dumpster fire that game was Mets got the first run of the game on a fielders choice error by Jose Martinez starting at first air mailing a potential double play ball into shallow LF, but a couple pitches later Carlos Martinez got an actual double play to end the threat. Yadi Molina homered off the LF foul pole in the 2nd to put the Cards up. 2 walks sandwiched around a single in the 3rd loaded the bases for Yoenis Cespedes, and he had a line drive to LF that just alluded the leaping Paul DeJong for a 2 RBI single, but the Cards tied it back up in the 4th with a Jose Martinez single. Mets took the lead for good with a 5 run 8th: After retiring the first batter of the inning Todd Frazier walked and then scored on Adrian Gonzalez's double to put the Mets in front for good. Matt Bowman came on and allowed a walk, sacrifice and 3 straight singles which lead to 3 more runs before he was finally replaced by Brett Cecil who allowed a single scoring the 5th and final run of the inning before retiring Asdrubal Cabrera....who started the inning with an out and ended the inning, everyone else that batted that inning, minus the pitcher who had a sac bunt reached base . Martinez homered in the 6th for the Cards 4th and final run of the day while Kevin Plawecki finished the scoring with a single in the 8th. Carlos Martinez (0-1) allowed 5 runs (4 earned) with an unsightly 6 walks and 5 strikeouts in only 4 1/3 innings of work. Noah Syndergaard (1-0) scattered 6 hits in 6 innings leading to 4 runs (2 homers allowed) but 0 walks and finished with 10 strikeouts.

The team's take tomorrow off before resuming the 3 game series on Saturday. Jacob deGrom (15-10, 3.53 in '17) starts for the Mets while the Cards will give the ball to Michael Wacha (12-9, 4.13 in 2017). First pitch slated for 1:10.

Default 2018 Regular Season: Game 1 (2018-03-29) - Saint Louis Cardinals at New York Mets

Carlos Martinez and Matt Bowman need to pitch balls for strikeouts instead of locking their heads up their rear ends. If they want to pull off shenanigans like that, they will be bench warmers in the clubhouse. They need to realize spring training is over.

The Cardinals will need to address the issue of fifteen strikeouts. The problem would be hitting coach John Mabry not being terminated. As long as Mabry stays as the Cardinals' hitting coach, the Cardinals will not hit balls with bats for base hits and runs batted in.

Will hitting coach John Mabry survive the 2018 season?

The Cardinals' lack of offense in three recent seasons could be attributed to a hitting coach who does not focus on the fundamentals of hitting balls with bats for base hits and runs batted in. When players are consistently striking out and not hitting balls with bats, there appears to be an issue with the coach responsible for hitting instruction.

I applaud the Cardinals for making necessary changes in their pitching and bullpen coaches. Not addressing their hitting coach remains sour. Either Mabry needs to do his job, or the Cardinals need to remove him from the hitting coach position.
