The case for an eight man October bullpen

It's all about matchups. On yesterday's podcast, Ben and Craig did a rundown of what the playoff rotation and bullpen might look like for the Cardinals in October. Recorded on Thursday night, that was before the walkoff win against Milwaukee, which pretty well clinched the Cardinals playoff chances, as well as the 7 1/3 innings of work by John Lackey last night, which probably solidified his spot in the playoff rotation. Michael Wacha will get his chance to do so tonight. That's the thing about debates this time of year: They tend to age in a matter of hours. Friday's game wasn't without...

John Lackey's declining velocity a concern for the Cardinals

John Lackey has had his share of good and bad performances since coming over at the trade deadline. Some of the poor performances could be due to luck given his track record, but declining velocity on his fastball is not a good sign for the aging right-hander. John Lackey's first seven starts provide a good template for using numbers to mean whatever you want them to. To wit: Lackey's ERA with the Cardinals is 4.87 to go along with an equally unhealthy 4.62 FIP. Take away Lackey's 9-run bomb against the Orioles, and his ERA is just 3.43 and a FIP also under 4. In four of his seven...

Cardinals at Pirates Recap: Cards' three-run seventh inning enough for the win

Cards beat the Bucs with one good inning from the offense and seven from John Lackey. Le Recap Sans Wi-fi The first six innings of tonight's game were ruled by double plays, Cardinal strikeouts, and a solo home run from The One Who Goes Yard. Pirates starter Francisco Liriano struck out four Cardinals the first time through the order and eight in his six innings (and one batter) of work. For his part John Lackey went seven innings, walking one and striking out three. The Pirates got on the board first on a second-inning tater by noted Card-killer Pedro Alvarez. As Ahab said of the foe he...
