The 2023 season has been nothing short of a disappointment for theSt. Louis Cardinals, who after a surge in May have fallen back to the bottom of the National League.
Heading into their series finale against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, they owned a record of 27-41 and were 8.5 games back in the NL Central.
Nothing appears to be going their way at the moment.
Only the Oakland Athletics and Kansas City Royals have worse records than the Cards.
Prior to the game, GM Michael Girsch spoke to the media and discussed everything that has gone wrong for the team, expressing frustration over the situation, per Bally Sports Midwest.
