Lance Lynn returns from the DL; St. Louis Cardinals win 5-1 behind solid outing

Lance Lynn looked like Lance Lynn tonight. He did walk four batters, but he also didn't allow a run. The offense was not as good as the score indicates, but you take five runs when they give it to you. It's not entirely accurate to say the Cardinals were fortunate to win tonight's game against the Marlins.  However, I feel no such qualms about saying that the Cardinals were very fortunate to score five runs.  With the help of some Marlins fielding mistakes and batted ball luck, the Cardinals were able to turn one or two runs into five.  But that's baseball.  Some nights, you kill the...

Jaime Garcia has been terrific for the St. Louis Cardinals

Five starts into his 2015 season, Jaime Garcia has been a terrific contributor to the starting rotation of the St. Louis Cardinals. Now, given the well-documented medical history of his throwing arm, how long will this contribution last? Unfortunately, no one has a definitive answer to that, but it is a topic Ben and I briefly discussed on VEB's latest podcast (in case you need something to listen to today). With significant injuries to the starting staff (Adam Wainwright, Lance Lynn, and essentially Marco Gonzales), Garcia's performance thus far has been nothing short of necessary. Tyler...

Lance Lynn to disabled list with 'forearm strain'; Tyler Lyons promoted to rotation

The Cardinals delivered bad news on Friday regarding Lance Lynn's barking forearm, but not the worst news. The St. Louis Cardinals delivered bad news regarding Lance Lynn's barking forearm on Friday, but not the worst news. The Cards announced on Friday that the club will place Lynn on the 15-day disabled list with a "forearm strain." Triple-A lefty Tyler Lyons will be promoted to the rotation in Lynn's stead. While a "forearm strain" can often be a precursor to a more severe diagnosis such as ulnar collateral ligament replacement via Tommy John surgery, the Cardinals appear optimistic...

Game 57 Thread: June 7 vs. Cardinals, 5p

Game 57 Thread: June 7 vs. Cardinals, 5p

This will not be the Lin on the mound today. Zack Greinke (5-1, 1.97) vs. Lance Lynn (4-4, 3.03). Pressure! A national TV audience is set to watch the best two teams in the National League tonight, with our Greinke going against a guy named Lance. We haven't seen Lancelot; he's 3-1 in five starts career vs. the Dodgers. But Lynn has helped solidify the Cardinals' starting rotation ever since the Cardinals lost Adam Gawain-wright earlier this season, after he tore his achilles Tristan awkwardly trying to run from the batter's box. On our side, we've been struggling offensively, but...

A tip of the cap to the fastballs (and post-game interview) of Lance Lynn

Disclaimer: The embedded video of Lance Lynn's interview may auto-play (for some reason). I sincerely apologize if you are reading in a designated quiet area. Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers, Lance Lynn muscled his way to one of his best outings as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals: 7 & 2/3 innings pitched, five hits, zero runs, one walk, five strikeouts, and a 73 game score. Of course, it came against the team with the worst record in baseball (now 18-36), but following a 1-0 loss the night before and with the offense mustering only one against a pitcher making his major...
