Long ball stings Cardinals in 8-2 loss to Milwaukee

With the Cardinals officially eliminated from postseason contention and Adam Wainwright’s chase for 200 wins over, the enthusiam and motivaton for the team to compete and — let’s be honest — the fans to tune in is waning (if it wasn’t already). But if you ask Oli Marmol, the team is still competing every single day trying to win every single game. In all reality, these final 10-15 games are probably best used to see which complementary pieces could potentially fill out a roster next season. Guys like Luken Baker, Jose Fermin, and Richie Palacios aren’t playing for this year, they’re playing for next year.
