Found September 10, 2013 on Cardinals Fan in Cubs Land:
After another poor outing last Thursday, Cardinals GM Mozeliak and Manager Mike Matheny did not mince words about the importance of Wednesday's start for Lance Lynn.  Mozeliak indicated that Lynn's next start could be his last to prove he belongs in the rotation, while Matheny echoed Mo's words, emphasizing the importance of getting Lynn sorted out. If Lynn can return to the form that produced a 7-1 record with a 2.91 ERA through the end of May, it would greatly improve the Cardinals chances for a long postseason run.  However, his recent stretch of 4 straight losses while giving up at least 4 runs in each game has not inspired confidence. But, if the Cardinals are forced to replace Lynn in the rotation, who do they replace him with? Jake Westbrook has been pretty brutal of late, giving up 5 runs (3 earned) in 1.1 innings his last time out, making a 12-1 lead nearly vanish and forcing the Cardinals to use an ailing Edward Mujica to close out a game that should not hav...

Things should get easier from here, as the Cardinals face 5 teams with a combined winning percentage of just .457 in their final 19 games...

Predicting the Rest of the Season and How it Looks Good For The Cardinals

As I pointed out in that same article,...

John Axford finding a home with contending Cardinals

Navy blue has been the color of choice for the majority of John Axford's baseball career.

Not just red, but Cardinals red. "It's been a little different," Axford said. "Even...

Preview: Miller looks to keep Cardinals rolling vs. Brewers
