The Padres beat the Cards 4 - 2 in 2:46 tonight at Petco Park in San Diego. The Padres played superbly on defense making four outstanding plays in the field. Unlike the play of the Padres our telecast was quite the opposite. This show was the biggest stinker of the season for St. Louis Cardinals television. I will not highlight the lowlights of this show because I don't have the time or the space to cover all the garbage that aired tonight. The St. Louis Cardinals TV production team takes a very low key approach as we cover each game. We take pride in the fact that our game coverage is quite good. However, sometimes our low key approach is misunderstood by local crew members that we don't care and therefore the effort put out by the crew is maybe not 100%. Believe me WE DO CARE. We on the Redbirds TV team take full responsibility for the ugly television that aired tonight. We are not going to turn into a bunch of screaming assholes but the crap that aired tonight will NOT air tomorrow.
