St. Louis Cardinals: Lance Lynn has guts

When it comes to St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn, my stance is pretty firm.  I think he is underappreciated by the Cardianls fan base and I am confused as to why. Lance Lynn has guts and that was fully on display last night when the big guy clearly did not have his best stuff, but willed himself to a quality 6.2 innings pitched and a Cardinals victory over a division...

Score One For the Pragmatists In Cardinal Nation

The Brewers are struggling. 3-7 in their past 10 and losers of 3 games in a row (including 6 of 7), this is the first true strife that Milwaukee has faced in 2014. Throughout April and then May and then June we thought this was coming… after all, the Brewers were inferior to the Cardinals (and some would say the Pirates and Reds), at least on paper. It never happened. The Brewers...

Martinez shines as Cards end trip with win over Giants

Michael Wacha is down, if not out. Jaime Garcia is down, if not out. Joe Kelly has been down for more than two months. The Cardinals’ pitching rotation, imposing at the top with Adam Wainwright and reasonably solid in the next spot with Lance Lynn, has been in search of some ballast. It might be finding it in Carlos Martinez, who pitched well enough this spring to be in the rotation...
