ONE OF THE BEST IN THE STATE COMES TO TIGER TOWN TONIGHT FOR SOME FOOTBALL UNDER THE LIGHTS WHEN THE WAYNESVILLE TIGERS ENTERTAIN THE WEST PLAINS ZIZZERS…

BEFORE WE DABBLE IN THE PREP STUFF, LET’S TURN OUR ATTENTION TO ST. LOUIS….

The Cardinals on Thursday announced the surprise firing of manager Mike Shildt on the grounds of a recently emerged “philosophical difference” regarding how the club should approach the 2022 season.

Shildt’s firing comes on the heels of a 92-win season and postseason berth for the Cardinals. Across parts of four seasons, the Cardinals finished 252-199 under Shildt. With players like Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Jack Flaherty, Tyler O’Neill, Yadier Molina, and Adam Wainwright in the fold for 2022, expectations for the new manager will be high.

Speaking of which, already team president of baseball operations John Mozeliak has hinted that internal candidates will be considered.

The San Francisco Giants were one game better than the Los Angeles Dodgers just about all season, right up until Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday night. The Dodgers eliminated their historic rivals with a 2-1 win (box score), setting up an NLCS rematch with the Atlanta Braves. The Giants, meanwhile, head home after five playoff games despite having the game’s best record in 2021.

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers survived a late Philadelphia Eagles comeback attempt, capping off a dominant night which Brady completed 81 percent of his passes with a bad thumb en route to a 28-22 victory Thursday night. Brady had two touchdown passes and Leonard Fournette had two touchdown runs in the victory — as Tampa Bay retains its commanding NFC South lead with the win.
