St. Louis Cardinals
Chicago White Sox
This week, the St. Louis Cardinals began to show what they are capable of again, at least from a pitching standpoint. But they are still a long way from right.
The rotation of Adam Wainwright, Kyle Lohse, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, and Joe Kelly collectively had an ERA just a shade over 2.00 this week, allowing nine earned runs over 40 innings. Lynn had the best start of his young career against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, allowing no runs while striking out 12. But the rest of the starters looked good, too. Even Jake Westbrook—who has struggled mightily over the past four to six weeks—turned in a six-inning outing Thursday night where he allowed three runs and five hits and kept the Cardinals in the game before they pulled out the win. It may not be a Bob Gibson line, but it is pretty good for Westbrook considering what he has given the Cards recently.

No time for pleasantries, people. We have a code red, DEFCON 3 situation on our hands and his name is Jason Motte. You guys, what is the DEAL with this asshole? I mean, no offense to the Kansas City Royals or all six of their fans, but this game today was simply embarrassing. It's Father's Day, for crying out loud! And for reasons that are frankly NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS...

As National League Central Division rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers play frequently. In fact, it is almost one-tenth of the season – 15 times in 2012. That does not include the possibility of the post-season, where the two clubs met in last year’s Championship Series.
Their Triple-A clubs, the Memphis Redbirds and Nashville Sounds, also compete in the same...
