The Cardinals had 5 extra base hits plus 5 walk yesterday; essentially 10 instances of 'free' bases.
The Royals had 2 - 1 double and 1 HBP.
That was the difference in the ballgame - banjo hitters that won't take walks simply won't win anything...ever. It's just out of date thinking; they've built a dead-ball era squad with no speed to supplement it.
I don't get it at all.
