Speaking to Tim McKernan on KFNS radio, Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse explained why departed shortstop Brendan Ryan was an issue in the team clubhouse. "I like Brendan, and I think a lot of guys wanted him to do well," Lohse said. "We all tried to help him out and tried to help him understand what being a professional was ... but I honestly think that when things aren't going so good, and you're still kind of the way he is … when you're still kind of forgetting to do the things you're supposed to, it starts to wear on you. He by no way is any reason why we didn't take the NL Central — but, I think just one little distraction that kind of rubbed some people the wrong way and it's just one of those things that doesn't help a team out. Brendan Ryan is who he is, and he's going to continue being that guy and personally I like him. I just don't think he's ever going to change and the inability to get serious about things kind of makes people really tired of you." If this has been posted on VEB already, my apologies. It was packed at the bottom of a Rams column. Thought I'd share.
