The Cardinals will have one less thing to complain about next season, as the day after several St. Louis players complained about Monday's 3:15 p.m. start, the team said the will not schedule any midafternoon starts next season.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, general manager John Mozeliak said the team's holiday games will start either in the evening or in the early afternoon.
"I talked to those guys," Mozeliak told the newspaper. "I recognize it as a safety issue and it will be addressed."
Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday complained about the shadows at Busch Stadium following the team's 4-1 loss to the Brewers. According to the report, Pujols, Holliday and player union representative Kyle McClellan addressed the issue after a 7-0 loss to the Pirates on Aug. 27. After that game, Lance Berkman called the start time "a farce."
The Cardinals played 10 games at 3:10 or 3:15 p.m. this season -- seven for national television and three other scheduled by the team.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @eyeonbaseball on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
