Cardinals manager Mike Shildt didn’t mince words in a profanity-laced speech following a 13-1 victory over the Braves in the deciding Game 5 of the National League Division Series Wednesday.
Shildt had choice words for the Braves and the Cardinals opponent in the National League Championship Series, including frequent use of the f-word.
A video of the speech made just after the clinching win and before the locker room was opened circulated on social media following the game. It was taken by outfielder Randy Arozarena and posted on Instagram live.

We are going to kick their (expletive) (expletive).
