Should the Cardinals pursue an ace or a stopgap?

With the injury to Lance Lynn, the Cardinals appear likely to sign a free agent starting pitcher. Does it make more sense for them to sign an ace or a one year stopgap? With Lance Lynn out for the entire 2016 season due to Tommy John surgery, the Cardinals seem likely to sign a free agent starting pitcher, which is something they have generally shied away from doing under John Mozeliak. The good news for the Cardinals is this year's crop of free agent starting pitchers is one of the deepest in recent memory. The Cardinals could fill Lance Lynn's spot in a number of different ways, as their...

Lance Lynn's ulnar collateral ligament: In Memoriam

We've seen the last of Lance Lynn's elbow ligament. How much more will we see of him? I don't remember exactly where I was the first time I saw Lance Lynn's ulnar collateral ligament, but I seem to recall it was underneath his skin, connecting his forearm to his humerus, and he was exerting a horrific force on it by pitching a baseball. Yesterday, Lynn's UCL was removed via Tommy John surgery, and he was likely removed from at least the 2016 season. So it seems like a good time to look back at what we've seen from Lynn and speculate a little about what we might see when he returns. Lynn...

Gordo: Lackey the best choice to replace Lynn

After the season ended, the Cardinals seemed unlikely to keep both Jaime Garcia and John Lackey. But Lance Lynn's elbow injury changed all of that.

Lance Lynn out for 2016 season with Tommy John surgery

The team announced today that Lance Lynn underwent Tommy John surgery and is out for the 2016 season. Heading into the offseason, the Cardinals had a talented, but potentially fragile rotation of five players already set for next year. The rotation took quite a hit today as the organization announced on its twitter feed that Lance Lynn had Tommy John surgery and would miss all of the 2016 season. Lynn has been one of the most durable starters in the majors over the past four seasons, and consistently provided the team with innings at an above-average output. Lynn struggled down the stretch...

How will Castellini react if the Reboot becomes the Rebuild? Plus, Jocketty’s greatest strength and more

Come October 2016, Walt Jocketty will not be the chief decision-maker in the Cincinnati Reds front office for the first time since April 2008. After co-overseeing the Reds with Jocketty through this offseason and the 2016 campaign (with Jocketty retaining final say on baseball moves), in less than a year, recently-installed general manager Dick Williams …

Reducing fatigue with a six-man rotation

Back in March, I made the argument that the Cardinals should consider moving to a six-man rotation. With the benefit of hindsight, how would the Cardinals have fared had they implemented this proposal? It is hard to make any sweeping conclusions based on four postseason games against an excellent opponent, but one of the narratives that has emerged after the Cardinals' early postseason demise is that several players were fatigued by the end of the season, including key members of the starting rotation. Lance Lynn and Michael Wacha struggled mightily down the stretch, and Carlos Martinez saw...
