Last night Trevor Rosenthal blew a save in the Cardinals eventual 4-3 victory over the Cubs. While that isn't very concerning, considering that Rosenthal had converted 10 straight saves prior to last night, what is concerning is that Trevor now has a 5.19 ERA while allowing 5.7 BB/9.Could Rosenthal's struggles open the door for Jason Motte to return to the closer role?Its...

Jhonny Peralta led off the 12th with a single for his third hit. Justin Grimm (1-2) retired Matt Holliday on a popup, but walks to Allen Craig and Yadier Molina loaded the bases for Garcia.
ST. LOUIS -- The Mariners have to be practically giddy to reach this point in the season and be two games over .500. The Marlins and Mets, likewise, should be encouraged to be even .500. Heck, the Twins will gladly take 18-19 after all their recent losing seasons.
But not all mediocre records are viewed the same.
For the Cardinals, a 20-20 start has been like beginning that long...

17 -5? The Cardinals didn’t just go under the the .500 mark (again) in 2014, they got mollywhopped by a terrible Cubs team.

That ‘spark’ Mike Matheny thought salvaging...
