Beating the Odds
Anne Rogers, writing for mlb.com, has an excellent profile of St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt.
“Believing in individuals and teams only gets tested when things aren’t going your way,” Shildt said. “And the easiest thing in the world is to punt on somebody. Sometimes it’s necessary in competition if a guy just doesn’t feel or look right, but not necessary when you have guys that you believe in that you know their work is taking place in the right manner, their head’s in the right spot. You know they’ve got a process for what they’re doing and how they’re doing it.”
Good read. Now go win Game 5.
