Yet, the future of the starting rotation could be one of the brightest parts of the end of the game as well, and do so in a familiar fashion. Go back to 2006 and find another young starter-turned-reliever out of necessity, Adam Wainwright. At the...


Can't do much worse than that.  The Cardinals have been shut-out, held to fewer hits and committed more errors in a game this season, yes. But to get mollywhopped at home with a chance to close the division lead coming off a dramatic 14 inning come-back win? Again, yeesh.
