I am an old fan who wants the pitch clock.

It would need strict enforcement of the time
limit with a clear penalty for the late offender.
Add a ball call for a tardy pitcher and another
strike for a batter out of the box.

More action in less time. What's to argue?

Pretty shocked with the situation in St. Louis..

Either the dude is about to have some "legal" issues or he told them to eat it... If you guys hear any details, please post them.

It's probably more of the GM wants to do things this way, the manager wants things this way, so they parted ways... just too opposite of opinions even if he did get results...

I have no idea what the problem with Schildt was...maybe legitimate, maybe not. Schildt was nearly a lifer with the Cardinals...with a 55% win rate...and three for three in qualifying for the post season.

Unless it comes out that reason was for personal misbehavior that meant he had to be dismissed, the GM has put a noose around his own neck. He now has a very old team going for one last hurrah behind two beloved players.

He will now have to go with a manager from outside a stable org, or an in-house candidate with very little experience, following a successful manager. Its not a healthy situation to be in for the guy who wielded the ax.

Shildt needs to replace DeMarlo Hale on the bench and be the first to take over once Tito calls it a career.
