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

    (Weaver and lyons and … Well… You get the point)

    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.

    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.

    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?

    …. And he is what… Ninth or tenth pitcher on our prospect list? Fifteenth?

    Sheesh.

    My choice for closer would be Wacha.

    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.

    Wacha might buy you a year or two. Of course that creates a hole in the rotation.

    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.

    Maybe you think i’m nuts.. But I would do this.

    Martinez
    Lynn
    Leake
    Weaver
    Wacha

    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.

    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.

    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 .
