Season starting to resemble 1987 Cardinals


If my memory is correct, the St. Louis Cardinals enjoyed a magnificent season in 1987 only to see it come crashing down in the World Series due to season ending injuries to starting all-stars Terry Pendleton (3B) and Jack Clark (1B).

Now, it appears the Razorbacks are suffering the same fate. Steam rolled to a superlative regular season only to start suffering injuries during the post season run.

Winning a championship includes so many variables. Being healthy during the post season is one of the most important factors.

UA…Campus of Champions

Slavens tweeted last night that his injury

was a minor setback and he will be alright.

Guy, I’ll not join you in such a comparison just yet. Doesn’t sound like a serious injury.

Aloha Clay,

We did lose a starting pitcher. Now a high ankle sprain to Slavens. Thus my analogy and concern.

UA…Campus of Champions

He had moved to bullpen because of lack of effectiveness. He did start some. He was up and down. Will be missed.

Slavens will be back.

I do not think it’s the same as what Cards went through.

Neither of these guys were all stars like Clark and Pendleton. Plus Slavens is not done.

I did not grow up a Cardinals fan. Pro sports were never my thing. So it’s hard for me to get into an analogy of college/pro.

Palette pitched a lot of innings. This team has won without consistent starting pitching.
