Patrick Wisdom Clearly Still Resents the Cardinals

Chicago Cubs

With two outs and nobody on, Ian Happ slapped one up the third base line that Nolan Arenado couldn’t handle (it hit the base, and then he flubbed it). Frank Schwindel worked a nice walk to bring up Patrick Wisdom with two on and two outs.


422 happy feet way out into left center, without a doubt about it once it left Wisdom’s powerful bat. I can only assume that Wisdom, a former Cardinals prospect, still holds a grudge against them for never giving him a real chance.

Despite his super slow start the season, Wisdom has his season slash line up to .229/.305/.500/122 wRC+, and he’s even getting that strikeout rate closer and closer to a – for him – very usable level (35.8%).
