Cardinal Plane Delayed Seven Hours On Ground

As we reported yesterday, the Cardinals' plane from St. Louis to Boston was delayed on the ground for seven hours due to mechanical issues. The Delta charter was supposed to leave ArchVille at 1PM Central time. After the seven-hour delay, the flight—packed with players and their families—landed at Logan Airport after 11PM Eastern time. Incredibly, tonight's starter Michael Wacha claimed (on a TWEET later deleted) that everything was hunky-dory on the plane. Ya, right. As much as we criticize the NOG, we're sure John Henry would have commissioned another plane instantaneously had the Red Sox been in the same predicament.
