I liked the Leake signing, in theory it was what the Cardinals needed at the time. I also like trading him. I don't think that dumping his contract is going to affect signing Lynn in any way.

I tend to think that the Cardinals will be fine if they let Lynn walk, but with Wainwright aging and having some arm issues this year it would probably be good to go after Lynn if it's feasible. You also have Reyes coming off TJ surgery next year, so an innings guy will probably be a good idea to have around. One thing we know, the Cardinals are unlikely to overpay for Lynn.

The good news is Weaver and or Flaherty are going to get some good seasoning in the last part of this season.

I really hope they make Lynn a competitive offer to stay. He's fiery & speaks his mind, we need more guys like that on our team. Like you said, with Waino aging and maybe having a year left, we need a veteran presence for our young guys that can also eat up innings.

During the off season, I hope we make a move to get a true middle of the order bat & bolster our bullpen. We have a glut of outfielders between the bigs and AAA, time to make some moves with them and get something good in return.

I'm excited for Flaherty's start tonight. His numbers in the minors this year have been spectacular, especially when you consider how hitter friendly most of the parks are in the PCL, and how much of a band box the park in Springfield is.

Cards pick up Nicasio from the Phillies on waivers. Could be a nice fit. Almost 70 innings this year and sub 3 ERA.

Weird deal though, he wouldn't be eligible in the playoffs if we were to be playing in the playoffs.

But great addition to help try and get there.

Huge win tonight for the WC with the Brewers and Rockies losing.

Unfortunately the Cubs pulled out a nail biter late.

We are now in front of the Crew and 2 games out of the WC and 4.0 back of the Cubs.

Great game by Flaherty and the other young guys. And great piece if pitching by Tyler Lyons after putting the first two runners on in the 9th.

Note we have 7 games remaining against the Cubs.

These last few games have been fun to watch. I'm curious about how different this team will look next year.

We are within two of the Cubs and tied with the Crew and we have two series against the Cubs remaining as well as a series against Milwaukee to finish the season in St Louis.

The Cardinals are hot and control their own destiny with a bunch of inexperienced triple A kids who are playing lights out.

Does anyone have an update on Fowler?

Fowler has a bruised knee, swelling is significant, MRI showed no tears. He'll be out a little while (5-7 games) I expect.

I'm hoping this bodes well for the next few years.

Anybody else wonder what might happen if Brewers, Cardinals and Cubs end the season tied?

I think it's head to head, then divisional record, then NL record. In a 3 way tie, I'm not sure what happens next.

Sweeping the Cubs at Wrigley sure would make this weekend fantastic.

Thankfully I'm a Razorback fan and used to disappointment.

Should be an interesting offseason for the Cards. They have a lot of decisions to make and I am sure the GM knows if they are going to compete something has to change. From my perspective they have to move some of their outfielders. I say you move Pham to center, Dex to left and pray Piscotty can bounce back and be more productive. They have to address the closer role, and honestly I think they have to address the starting rotation as well. Most of all I think they have to get a slugger in the middle of the order, but I doubt they shell out the cash for one.

So Lilliquist is gone, interesting. I’d bet the house that a promotion from within is on the way.

This closer thing is going to be interesting to watch. I think we may see a current starter move to the back end of the bullpen, I’m thinking Alex Reyes or possibly Wacha. I could see Wacha being very effective there. Of course I have no idea what I’m talking about but it’s fun to navel gaze.

If he is healthy I think Reyes will thrive in any role he is put in.
