    Now that’s quite the lineup there. Here’s to hoping Lynn throws a shutout as that’s about the only way we are going to win this one.

    A Fryer sighting.

    Lynn has well outdone his peripherals this year, and hopefully he’ll be able to do the same today. The lineup isn’t quite as bad as it might look at the bottom, but the Mets aren’t throwing an ace at it either. Would be a nice game to win around 6-3.

    Fryer has 3 hits in his last 37 ABs. Maybe he can change that today, because there is no apparent thump coming from the last four spots in the order today.

    Homerun by Duda in the 2nd and the Mets lead 1-0.

    This game is over.

    Lynn has been his typical inefficient self. Probably going to be pulled after the 5th here.

    At least Garcia broke up the no hit bid.

    For some reason, Lynn led off the inning at 91 pitches.

    A Carpenter walk and a Pham double ties it at 1.

    Lynn threw a lot of pitches in the first two inning, but did well to last six. Card with a chance to do something now with Gyorko pinch hitting and two on, two outs in the top of the 7th.

    Nice hitting by Pham today. He’s probably the MVP of the season so far.

    There goes our bullpen being our bullpen again. Cecil gives Flores a hanger and Flores didn’t miss. Game tied now.

    Cecil immediately coughs it up. I hate this bullpen and wish we could trade them all for nothing in return.

    Then we give up a pinch hit home run and the game is tied going into the bottom of the 9th with the Mets up…

    Painful ending in so many ways. Rosenthal not covering first as the winning run scores.

    Our pen is not only bad, they’re stupid. Rosenthal gives the game away with a walk, a hit and brain stuck in neutral (not covering 1st on grounder)…about what you’d expect, at this point I guess. Seriously, is anybody surprised?

    Ahh…yep. Yet another split after a promising start to the series.

    Really disappointing to have the bullpen ruin games again and again and again. But it’s not suprising when you have a bunch of below average arms trying to patch together innings with 91 mph stuff. There are no elite arms besides Rosenthal in the bullpen. That needs to change.

    Does anyone think that a bullpen next year with Hudson, Alcantara, Montgomery, Marco, Sherriff, Weaver and Tui would be much of a step down, if any, from this mess? It’s sad when your minor league options are pretty much a wash with the big league stuff.

    How about we just trade you, if you can’t say their names right just go away and stop your GARBAGE posting.

    How about the offense that was dominated? Granted, some of the starters were rested, but that was not Syndergaard or Harvey or deGrom out there. It was Seth Lugo, for Pete’s sake! With no room to work, the pen has to be perfect, and it cannot be.

    Edit: Supporting points added.

    Cardinals offense, runs scored: MLB rank #21 (bottom third)
    Cardinals bullpen ERA: 4.06, MLB rank #13 (roughly middle)

    To be fair there is a valid point in saying that pulling up weaver reyes and a couple other guys for the bullpen next year should improve it quite a bit.

    Should.

    However your point that the offense needs some thunder and a general remake is also valid.

    We just kinda suck.
