The Cardinals reached the halfway point of their season Saturday night. It just might be their low point, as well.

If they are going to remain in the National League playoff hunt, it better be.

The Cardinals dropped a 12-2 decision to the Padres at Petco Park, and the score only hints at the story. The loss was the Cards’ fifth straight and left them at 40-41 after 81 games.

“It says we’re an average team; that’s what the record says,” manager Mike Shildt said. “That’s basically what .500 is. End of the day, it’s mediocrity. And that’s not ultimately acceptable.

“We know we’re better, and we will be better. Actions speak louder than words. Beyond that, I don’t know what I can say. We need to start acting on it.”

For a franchise that has enjoyed 11 straight winning seasons, that is an unfamiliar position. Only once in those 11 seasons did the Cardinals hit the halfway point under .500 -- two years ago, when they stood 39-42 and improved slightly in the second half to finish at 83-79.

This isn’t the first time in 2019 the Cardinals dipped below .500. They were 31-32 as recently as June 9. But they responded with nine wins in their next 13 games to climb to 40-36. Then came the current slide, the Cardinals’ longest losing streak of the season.

Hopefully the Cardinals decide to stop playing like shildt today. And they keep starting Tommy Ballgame; the rest of them disgust me.

Pretty sure the padres’ pitcher is a type of cowboy boots.

Lucky Lucchesi was positioned above Paddack on their prospect list last year, and he's a lefty. We've all been wondering when we'll get no-no'd; very likely happens today. At the very least, we can hope for a shutout.

I hope Tommy Edman has been talking with Bob Gibson.
