It appears the stock market finally found its bottom. I wonder if there is any hope that the free falling Cardinals will bottom out anytime soon.
Injuries or not, May or not, the Birds can't afford this devastating losing streak in a very competitive division.

I don't know where to begin. The hitting is terrible, the pitching is terrible. The defense is flat and there is no enthusiasm at all...
It seems like the hitters have someplace to be after the game with how eager they seem to be to make a quick out and then get back to the dugout. Unfortunately, the hurlers aren't playing along with a ridiculous total of free passes given out lately.
Speaking of pitchers... Didn't the Cardinals master talent evaluators -- tell us Jeff Suppan and Braden Looper weren't that good when they let them go as free agents. How pleasant for fans to watch them come into our ballpark and make the St. Louis hitters fall all over themselves all night long.
Cardinals Star of the Game: Nick Stavinoha had two hits, which is more than you can say for anyone else playing for St. Louis Monday night.
Lowlight: A tie between Chris Perez and Jason Motte who each walked three guys in an inning.
