MLB insider slams last-placed reigning NL Central champs: “No team comes close to the St. Louis Cardinals in terms of downright disappointment”

Must read

There have been a lot of disappointing teams this MLB season, but perhaps none more so than the St. Louis Cardinals. They have limped to the third-worst record in baseball after winning the division last year and earning a trip to the playoffs.

Not a whole lot has changed for the Cardinals save for the departure of franchise icon Yadier Molina. Now, they can’t pitch very well and most of their hitters are struggling.

MLB reporter Jeff Passan did not mince words when discussing the state of the team:

“As mediocre as the Mets and Padres have been this season, no team comes close to the St. Louis Cardinals in terms of downright disappointment. They are a disaster. Five straight losses. A 27-42 record — the worst in the National League, better than only Oakland and Kansas City.”

Passan mentioned the New York Mets and San Diego Padres, both of whom have sub-.500 records despite spending more than most of the league. However, they’re both within shouting distance of making a run at the playoffs. The Cardinals play in one of the worst divisions in baseball and can’t make any headway.


Despite boasting two of last year’s three MVP finalists and the winner (Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt, respectively), the Cardinals are one of the worst teams in baseball.

Nolan Arenado calls St. Louis Cardinals bad

After blowing another lead and losing to the San Francisco Giants (being swept in the process), Nolan Arenado came to terms with the St. Louis Cardinals‘ reality: they’re not good.

Nolan Arenado admitted the St. Louis Cardinals are badNew York Yankees are, so it’s far from over.
