VIDEO: Mike Shildt Delivers Crazy NSFW Speech in Locker Room After Cards Advance to NLCS

Cardinals manager Mike Shildt pumps up the team in postgame speech on Wednesday.

The St. Louis Cardinals entered Wednesday with one thought on their mind: defeat the Atlanta Braves in Game 5 of the NLDS. St. Louis accomplished that goal rather quickly, as they scored 10 runs in the first inning, essentially ending the game as soon as it started. Following the team's 13-1 victory, manager Mike Shildt delivered an incredibly fired up and NSFW speech, which was streamed on outfielder Randy Arozarena's Instagram Live. Shildt's speech included plenty of swearing, and quite frankly, it was awesome.

Tell us you wouldn't run through a wall after hearing that.

With their decisive victory on Wednesday, the Cardinals can spend the time celebrating with champagne and beer, as they await their NLCS opponent. St. Louis' opposition will either be the NL West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers or the NL Wild Card-winning Washington Nationals.

As evidenced by his speech, Mike Shildt doesn't care who they play, because he believes the St. Louis Cardinals are going to mess them up.

And after hearing that speech, it'd be a shock if the Cards don't take at least a couple of games in the NLCS.
