Brian McKenna

Brian McKenna has been bringing his humorous, swashbuckling style of broadcasting to the St. Louis airwaves since 1994. He began his radio career as an intern at KASP, St. Louis’ first all-sports station. In 1995, he co-hosted The Casino Queen Sports Grill weekday afternoons with KPLR Sports Director Rich Gould on 590 The Fan KFNS. Brian also worked as a reporter for Fox Sports News covering the Cardinals and the Blues. In 2000, McKenna became the newest member of The Breakfast Club with JC Corcoran on KLOU 103.3 FM. While at KLOU, he was as an analyst for the St. Louis Rams Radio Network pre/post game shows. Always the innovator, never the duplicator, he and Joe DeNiro introduced “Guy Talk” radio to the St. Louis market in the fall of 2003 with Midday Mayhem on 1380 The Team. Brian was also the host and producer of the “Rams Pregame Report” on KDNL ABC30 from 2001-2004. Brian recently hosted “Mayhem in the AM” at 590 The Fan KFNS and “Afternoon Mayhem” on 1380 The Fan2. He has written comedy for Joe Buck, been a guest on Oprah and appeared in an NBC mini-series. He received a Marketing Degree from Southeast Missouri State University. 

Brian is a former Personal Trainer and a fitness freak.  His passions are working out and surfing. Brian has been involved with many local charities and organizations including: Nurses for Newborns, American Cancer Society, National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and Big Brothers Big Sisters to name a few. McKenna is one of 10 children and has 72 nieces and nephews. Brian resides in St. Louis Hills.

Jeff Burton

Jeff Burton was born and raised in Fenton, MO and attended Vianney, Eureka and Lindbergh High Schools.  He got a start in radio in Springfield, MO in 1986 and then came to St. Louis three months after 105.7 The Point came on the air where he hosted the Jeff, Trish and Thom Show until The Point was sold to Emmis. After 11 months on Red@ 104.9 Burton was reunited with Thom West for the afternoons on The Point where they remained as the No. 1 noon show in St. Louis for nearly seven straight years. Jeff had several broadcast opportunities outside the country that include Sydney for the 2000 Olympics and Dublin, Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day.  Later in 2011, Thom and Jeff started doing podcasts at thethomandjeffshow.com and on iTunes. Jeff helped launch internet radio in St. Louis via talkstl.com. In Jeff’s free time, he enjoys letting the wind hit his face riding a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard. Jeff resides in Eureka with Juli and their two daughters, Abby and Casey.

Is it time to panic?

The Cardinals have now lost six games in a row. They have averaged just one run a game over that stretch. Yadier Molina, who some would consider the team's first-half MVP, is headed back to St Louis today to have an MRI done on his right knee and he has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. It is a knee that has bothered him since last month.

As we watch players like Molina and Craig struggle at the dish (yes, both still hit over .300), but it has seemed that as they went so did the Cardinals. Molina is hitting .268 in July with 10 RBIs and Craig hasn't had a hit in a game since July 24, which makes him 0-for-22 with 10 strikeouts. I think there is room to be worried.

There are some concerns with the pitching staff as they were once ranked No. 1 in every category but have now been overtaken by the Pirates. Overall, the team pitching numbers are still very good with a 3.42 ERA and 60 quality starts in 105 games. But Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller and Lance Lynn have struggled in their past couple of starts and pitchers like Fernando Salas (no idea why he was around) and his 4.79 ERA have killed the Cardinals in times when he was desperately needed.

At the beginning of the season, the experts  liked the Reds to win the Central with the Cardinals right behind them. No one considered the Pirates because, well, they are the Pirates and haven't been relevant since the 1990s. But after seeing the Pirates over the past couple of days, I do not see them fading anytime soon.

If the Cards want to make the post-season, they need to get back to what made them successful over the first 100 games this season. Patient at-bats, strong pitching, and better fielding (not to pile on Matt Holliday because everyone else will). If they can do all three of those things, I think they have what it takes to make a run into late October. That being said, is it time to panic yet Cardinal Nation?
