When you have that as your 7th 8th or 9th starter you know something is going right.

7 th inning went k- k- ground out for a Flaherty.
Approaching 100 pitches likely done for the day 2 singles and 1 walk no base runner beyond first base. Had the curve, slider, and fastball all working well.
Rainer announcer said it best. Something along the lines of the cardinals $2M bonus looks like it is going to pay them back well.August 6, 2017 at 6:07 pm #29880
What do you do with Weaver
and Flaherty?August 6, 2017 at 6:35 pm #29881
Reyes will be in the bullpen… Tj rehab
I dont see how we don’t deal some players. But then I didnt see us only dealing one pitcher at the deadline either.
We simply have too many random parts and a lot of them are pitchers.August 6, 2017 at 6:45 pm #29885

How do you know phase them in?August 6, 2017 at 7:22 pm #29887
We need a 2019 closer. That assumes Rosenthal makes it through 2018 without falling apart or we may need one sooner. Should one of these guys be groomed for that role? If so, which one?August 6, 2017 at 8:01 pm #29889

In second Double-A start, Ryan Helsley hurls 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball for Springfield, fanning eight. Fastball hit 99 in last frame.

…. And he is what… Ninth or tenth pitcher on our prospect list? Fifteenth?
Sheesh.August 6, 2017 at 9:18 pm #29893
My choice for closer would be Wacha.August 6, 2017 at 9:37 pm #29894
Alcantra would seem to be the logical choice but Mo has gone out of his way to say that he sees Alcantra as a starter.August 6, 2017 at 9:39 pm #29895
Wacha might buy you a year or two. Of course that creates a hole in the rotation.August 6, 2017 at 9:43 pm #29896
Morales has his ERA down to 0.50. I think that is 12 straight appearances without giving up a run. Needs to be tested at AAA.August 6, 2017 at 9:51 pm #29897
2018 rotation –
Closer – Wacha
Long man – ReyesAugust 6, 2017 at 11:03 pm #29899
Maybe you think i’m nuts.. But I would do this.
Closer : wainright
Setup : reyes rosenthal and two minor leaguers
Lefties : pick a few we have choices
As for why… He has done it before and for a year? He can still dial it up enough for that. Sell him on three more years as a closer. I think he has that much left in the tank similar to smoltz.August 7, 2017 at 10:47 am #29934August 7, 2017 at 11:19 am #2993714NyquisTParticipant
Morales has made the most of his comeback. I can see him in Busch sometime in ’18 if his body holds up.
I’ve remained high on this ex-starter… good move to the BP.August 9, 2017 at 10:51 am #30152Bw52ParticipantPaid - Annual
Isn`t Alcantara still dealing with control issues? Has the FO soured on Rowan Wick and his arm?
What about Tuivalaila getting a shot at closing in Spring training .
