Lately, St. Louis Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak has taken a lot of heat from fans and media members alike.
The team is currently languishing in last place in the NL Central and has the worst record in the National League.
After Tuesday night’s loss, they dropped to 25-37 as their losing skid was extended to five games.
Before their game against the Texas Rangers, Mozeliak spoke to Alexa Datt of Bally Sports Midwest to discuss what has gone wrong for the team this season and how it can ultimately be fixed.
However, he began the interview by saying something he’s said many times, which has drawn the ire of the fanbase.

Mozeliak continued to preach patience and tried to remind fans that there were still roughly 100 games left in the season.
While that is true, it’s not something Cardinals fans are going to want to hear after the team has continued to struggle, even in a weak NL Central.
The Cardinals had come to within four games of first place near the end of May, but have quickly slipped back to 8.5 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers.
They are also eight games back of the third Wild Card spot in the National League.
Mozeliak has constantly preached patience and optimism, but with two months gone in the season and the Cardinals still in last place, fans are growing frustrated, and continuing to preach patience isn’t going to go over well with the vast majority of the fanbase.
