As St. Louis Cardinals fans saw late Thursday night, reliever Mitchell Boggs took his third blown save of the season and first since his two-week banishment to Memphis earlier this month. His ninth-inning home run allowed to Kansas City’s Jeff Francoeur eliminated Michael Wacha’s first St. Louis win. Since his return from Triple-A, the 29-year-old Boggs has allowed three earned runs, including two long balls in four innings pitched. The right-hander also issued three walks against just one strikeout. Clearly, Boggs is still not right. The open question is what the Cardinals should do about it. At one end of the spectrum, his market value is at its lowest point and Boggs could come back to haunt St. Louis. On the other hand, can the contending Cardinals afford to do nothing?

  • Unfortunately Boggs should be released immediately. He doesn't seem to have the mental maturity to pitch against good hitters or under pressure. He appears to be a "thrower" who will never be a "smart pitcher." I almost threw up when they put him in to loose Wacha's win.

    Lynn better pay attention to Boggs too. He has a tendency to have the same screwed up delivery, like Boggs, which makes him get wild. If you look at the new kids who are having success they have two things in common: strong arms and the ability to consistently concentrate on what they're doing.
  • Boggs needs to go Maybe we can get a batboy far him.
