Just like Cardinals management to sit on their hands and not go after a legit closer or even a SP. Brag about all this money they have to sign players and what do they do with it? Sit on it. Do nothing. No surprise as to why they can't close out close games or score runs with men on base. They will be sucking hind tit again at the end of this year. Need new ownership and GM. That's all I got to say.

Their farm system produced one, so it's all good.
We just trade 5+ WAR players for players that break their hands punching TV's

If you're referring to Russell, he came from the A's late in his MiLB career.

Yeah. HOF quality relievers suck.
Well that’s kind of a weak statement as i bet you could find suck at the end of a bunch of HoF relievers’ careers.

I have no idea if that’s where Kimbrel is.

Rivera is literally the only reliever who stayed elite until the end. But you can find suck at the end of a lot of pitchers careers not just relievers. For example: Steve Carlton.

Both gifs are from Netflix's absurdist sketch comedy show I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson. The multi part sketch is called TC Tuggers.

Why? I think you're not seeing it well enough. Lean in bending over at your waist and raise your right elbow to the level of your shoulder with your arm rigid pointing down at the elbow and see if that doesn't clear up the reasons.
