The case for a complete rebuild

The case for a complete rebuild

An option that has 0% chance of happening Two weeks ago, I wrote about the prospect of the Cardinals selling at the deadline. Seung Hwan Oh and Lance Lynn are the two most obvious trade chips: both are free agents at the end of the year. Trevor Rosenthal makes sense as well. He’s been lights-out for most the year, projects to cost nearly $10M next year (his final before free agency), and great relievers fetch a hefty price at the deadline. There were two other players I also named as possibly being worth trading. Michael Wacha is healthy and pitched well to start the year, but two weeks...

Gonzales Hit Hard, Cardinals Drop Nightcap

Gonzales Hit Hard, Cardinals Drop Nightcap

23 combined hits, back and forth action didn’t favor the Cardinals in this late-inning, 8-5 loss After the Cardinals and Jose Martinez took a commanding hold of game one, our second installment had different plans in what turned out to be a back and forth slugfest. Prior to this start, the Cardinals were the only team in baseball to use the same five starting pitchers through the first 62 games of the season. Marco Gonzales broke that trend, hoping to follow-up Lance Lynn’s eight strikeout win a few hours earlier. The Brewers’ bats had other plans. Jumping out to a quick 2-0 lead on...

St. Louis Cardinals: How long will the Lynnsanity last?

Lance Lynn has been one of the more consistent, yet unremarkable faces in the rotation for the St. Louis Cardinals over the past few years, but has returned sharper than ever over the first two months of the 2017 season. Will Lynn continue to exceed expectations or revert to his more modest numbers?

DeJong homers, but Cardinals get rocked again 5.28.17

DeJong homers, but Cardinals get rocked again 5.28.17

Rockies mount another big 8th inning to clinch another win against the frustrating Cardinals. The Cardinals have been in stasis, their record hovering around .500 for both the last week and the entire season. Starting pitching is all that is keeping this team afloat. This past week, Cardinal starters allowed 12 runs on 27 hits in 40.2 innings, striking out more than 4 times as many batters as they walked. The Cardinals turned to Lance Lynn today. Lynn was coming off his best start of the season, in which he dueled Clayton Kershaw to a tie through 9 innings in a game the Cardinals would...

Rockies top Cardinals 8-4 behind German Marquez, Gerardo Parra

Rockies top Cardinals 8-4 behind German Marquez, Gerardo Parra

It was a good day to be a Rockie, especially if your name is German or Gerardo. In front of another sold out crowd, the Colorado Rockies defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 8-4 on Sunday afternoon and won their fourth consecutive series in the process. German Marquez pitched 5 2⁄3 solid innings and Gerardo Parra went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer in the victory. A day after being completely baffled by Adam Wainwright, the Rockies weren’t fooled by Lance Lynn. After all three batters in the first inning made hard contact but failed to reach base, Gerardo Parra and Ian Desmond hit...
