Angry Redbirds Confront Coors Field Grounds Crew

Oh boy, here we go again.  Old Uncle Pisspants (aka Tony La Russa) and crew aren’t happy.

Bob Nightengale Tweets…

#mlb#cardinals The Cardinals lodged a protest Friday night over the pitchers mound in Denver being so different than the one in the bullpen.

“The mound in the bullpen was way flatter. I don’t know if they do it on purpose, but no question, it was different,” Carpenter said.

Carpenter also complained that the steep slope of the pitching mound forced him to alter the delivery on his breaking pitches.

Back to Bob Nightengale…

#mlb#cardinals The umpiring crew measured the mound Saturday afternoon at Coors but no changes appear to have been made.

Chris Carpenter delivers a pitch in the first inning of Friday night's game.

According to the Denver Post, several visiting pitchers have noticed the difference between the two mounds, but since no visible changes appeared to be made, the discrepancy must not be in violation of major league rules

More Bob Nightengale from Saturday afternoon.

#mlb#cardinals The saga isn’t over. Tony La Russa just got done having a heated exchange with the Colorado groundscrew.

Get over it and shut up you old windbag.  The umpires measured it.  Major League Baseball approved it.  Leave the groundskeeper alone and get back to prayin’ you don’t see the Rockies again in October.

    Ha the Rockies don’t stand a chance against the birds at busch! Go Redbirds!

  2. Chris M says:

    Don’t stand a chance? They’re 4-0 at Busch this year.

  3. Will says:

    True, but that was pre-holliday, derosa, and lugo…the birds are a completely different team now and you’ll find that out should the rockies actually make the playoffs…

  4. Nick says:

    Sooooo…. the Rockies have a steep mound, and Bronson Arroyo pine tars his hat according to the Cards in the last week. The first NL team to have clinched their (terrible) division, seems to be prepping everyone for their first round exit from the playoffs

    • J says:

      Hahahaha youre talking about the phillys when you say first team to clinch their division right? Id say you cant argue that the cards are in the strongest division when you consider they won the wild card so 2 teams from their division made the playoffs and additionally now both central division teams are in the nlcs. Good call on your early exit prediction too… again though according to your “stats” you must have been referring to the phillys
