    Holliday, Berkman and several teammates loudly objected to mid-afternoon start times last season. The club responded by moving all afternoon games to no later than 1:05 p.m. However, rightsholders Fox and TBS control the postseason alignment.

    "It’s a shame is what it is," Holliday said. "You play all year, get these opportunities, and this is the game. You play all year at 1:00 and 7:00, then you get to the most important part of the year and you’re playing at weird times."

    Wow, That is a seriously pathetic thing to cry about.

    Next thing they are crying about will be that the baseball is to round...

    Good for Craig:

    "I didn’t feel helpless at the plate. There are no excuses," said first baseman Allen Craig. "I don’t want to make it about the shadows, really. They had to hit in the shadows, too. They’ll tell you it makes it tougher. We’ll tell you the same thing."

    This is a legitimate gripe. Every year the Cards make it to the post season, they're put at a middle afternoon start time to appease the TV folks. There's no crying, they just would like the game to not be impacted by the shadows.

    I guarantee if the Reds were playing midday start times, they'd have something to say about the shadows.

    Hey look at this...the Nationals hitters were talking about it too...are they complainers now?

    Of course. You guys just have a longer history of it. Now please, stop whining. . . .again.

    The point isn't whether it's a legitimate gripe or not. The point is that some teams whine about everything as an excuse and other teams take whatever life gives them and find a way to turn it to their advantage. The Cards are perpetual whiners and the Reds aren't.

    The Reds could have whined about losing Madsen, but instead they found Chapman.

    The Reds could have whined about losing Votto, but instead they went on a torrid winning streak without him.

    The Reds could have complained about losing Cueto, but instead they played an excellent game and won without him.

    It's a bit lame when players say, "We aren't making excuses, but ..." while they are in the process of making excuses.

    So the point isn't whether the gripe is legitimate; the point is that they shouldn't be griping in the first place.

    And the shaddows had absolutely NO impact on the outcome of the game

    If you notice, the Cardinals are not saying this was the reason they lost. A lot of MLB players gripe about the shadows at various stadiums, but when the Cardinals do it, they're whiners.

    It's really unfair that the Crads had to deal with the shadows and the Nats didn't.

    I, for one, love the Cardinals whining about a feature of their own stadium.
