The Red Sox may have a high implied team total against Lance Lynn, but Lynn has strong numbers against righties, limiting the DFS appeal of right-handed bats like Hanley Ramirez.

Red Sox destroy hope, kick puppies in Cardinals 5-4 walkoff loss

Red Sox destroy hope, kick puppies in Cardinals 5-4 walkoff loss

If it were up to me, we would never play the Red Sox, ever again. Ah. The true purpose of the 8-game winning streak was to instill hope into Cardinals fans’ heart just so that the Red Sox could rip it out, kick on it, spit on it, and then laugh. Because without that streak, this loss sucks, but the season isn’t going anywhere anyway so it doesn’t really hurt that bad. We laugh in a sort of “Haha this season, am I right?” way instead of “I want to murder everyone in Boston.” Lance Lynn had the most Lance Lynn start possible tonight. Well, that’s not exactly true. He had...

The effect of Paul Dejong batting 3rd

The effect of Paul Dejong batting 3rd

It’s been a tale of two seasons after this lineup switch On July 23rd, the Cardinals, almost predictably, surrendered an early lead to the Cubs and fell to 47-51. It was the third consecutive series the team hadn’t won. At 4th place in the Central and 9 games out of the wild card race, the outlook was bleak. Rumors started to swirl. Would the Cardinals sell? With Lance Lynn most likely gone at years end, would he be traded? Michael Wacha’s name started to be mentioned as well. While pitching occupied most minds, others identified the need for a big bat, especially if the Cardinals...

St. Louis Cardinals: Trade deadline and Lance Lynn part three

The St. Louis Cardinals will have five days to make a decision on what to with Lance Lynn. What they decide will affect the future of the team in 2018 and beyond. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve taken a look at the curious case of Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cards Continue Cruising, Win 7th Straight: An 8/11 Recap

The Braves could not contain all this offense. Last i spoke with you, the Cardinals lost to Homer Bailey and looked like they were probably done for the year with winning baseball games. Lost to the Reds 3-2 despite a solid Lance Lynn outing. Today, as I live and breathe, .513. We are fully 3 games over .500, and i never thought this team would agree to do that. It’s gotten so stupid that we are 1 game behind the stinking Cubs. Baseball is weird and unpredictable, and not just in the aggregate. Baseball is weird and unpredictable in the 7-day stretch. Even in the individual game. I love...

Head injuries have inspired Cards relievers to take caution

As if the handful of Cardinals relievers needed a reminder why they’ve started wearing a protective insert in their hats, they got one in the third inning, when teammate Lance Lynn took a glancing blow from a line drive.

St. Louis Cardinals: Trade Deadline and Lance Lynn part two

The St. Louis Cardinals have a decision to make in regards to the future of starting pitcher, Lance Lynn. Earlier this week, I decided to go a little off-course than the traditional reaction pieces we have at Redbird Rants. I wanted to focus on a single player because he was the most intriguing piece the […] St. Louis Cardinals: Trade Deadline and Lance Lynn part two - Redbird Rants - Redbird Rants - A St. Louis Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

One mistake is all it takes in Reds' 4-1 loss

Lance Lynn was dealing. So was Luis Castillo, to a point. Games like these can turn on one pitch, and that one pitch became a St. Louis home run

8.5.17 Cardinals @ Reds Recap: That’s a Lynner!

Hooray The Game Yesssss. I finally get to recap a win. Feels like it’s been awhile, you guys. It was a good game by all accounts. It started out rough, when Lance Lynn gave up a first inning home run to Joey Votto, but here’s the thing: Votto is bound to beat you in some way or another, at least once. Might as well get it over with early. Luckily, it was a solo home run, and (SPOILER ALERT) it was the only run the Reds would score today. The Cardinals wasted little time taking the lead on a home run of their own. Matt Carpenter walked to lead off the third inning, and with one...
