As you might be aware Mike Shildt is out as the Cardinals Manager for reasons that are unclear, but have been summed up as “philosophical differences”. I am definitely going to keep the vague answer in my lexicon as a prepared response for things I don’t want to discuss.
“Why wasn’t your post for yesterday ready?”
“What happened with that guy your were seeing?”
“Why won’t the Cardinals give you writer’s credentials?”
“Why do you think Jean-Jacques Rousseau and David Humes had a falling out?”
It is perfect!
Anyway in his 3+ seasons as the Cardinals manager Mike Shildt became known as a man that didn’t mince words. With that in mind, here are some of favorite Mike Shildt moments.

“The [Braves] started some shit. We finished the shit. And that’s how we roll. No one fucks with us ever. Now, I don’t give a fuck who we play. We’re gonna fuck them up. We’re gonna take it right to them the whole fucking way. We’re gonna kick their fucking ass.” pic.twitter.com/2J7jyJc60O
