    Geez will the insanity ever stop? 9 million again?How is Knizner ever getting a real chance? Nothing wrong with having Molina back as a guy who catches 80 games .3 XBH in 2 months is weak.The only saving grace is his RISP so far.Defense is declining.

    Who could have really predicted the total breakdown of the entire staff except Wainwright and Reyes.They knew Hudson was out .Mikolas had issues.No one expected Poncedeleon to completely bomb,Gant to forget how to find the strike zone,Kim to have issues,Flaherty to miss half the season,CMretinez to belly up and then get hurt.
    Tyler Webb went from semi-effective to DFA.Fernandez flopped again Hicks down agswin,Helsley inconsistent,Whitley,Elledge ineffective,Woodford so-so.Andrew Miller..blah.Oviedo overmatched.
    Just a perfect storm of injuries,mismanagement and ineffectiveness to sink this team.

    Good thing he is.Still 1 XBH in 7 weeks is concerning.

    Cards RISP and RISP/2 outs WAR

    Molina 24/79 .304 15/43 .349 1.1
    Goldy 32/101 .317 11/41 .268 2.7
    Edman 21/71 .296 11/42 .262 2.0
    Arenado 32/94 .340 16/44 .364 2.9
    DeJong 15/42 .242 4/31 .129 1.5
    O`Neill 14/73 .192 7/35 .200 3.5
    Bader 13/51 .255 4/24 .167 1.9
    Carlson 23/86 .267 7/38 .184 1.4
    Sosa 9/43 .209 2/20 .100 1.3

    Baseball reference.

    So the nonsense about Arenado being a bust is just that IMHO.Could he be better..yes..couldn`t the whole team..yes.
    Right now O`Neill is slumping and needs to move down a spot or two.The batting of Goldy 2nd is wasting him IMO. am wondering about a lineup like this.

    Bader CF
    Edman 2B
    Goldy 1B
    Arenado 3B
    Carlson RF
    O`Neill LF
    Molina C
    DeJong SS

    O`Neill with his 8th 3 K game this season.
    He also has( 6 ) 3 Hit games and( 1 ) 4 Hit game.
    Still and will likely always be streaky TO.IMHO he should be hitting 5th..not 4th.

    Gutsy job by Wainwright.Good game by O`Neill .THe FO and MO must get at least 2 more solid pitchers for next season.No more BS about guys getting healthy etc.

    Ankiel like meltdown from the bullpen.Pathetic.After treading water all season i agree.Its time to go young.A big hell NO to a Molina extension.If Molina wants to come back on a 1 year 2 million deal to share and mentor Knizner/Herrera/Sanchez then okay.
    Say goodbye to Happ,Lster,Luis Garcia,McFarland,Poncedeleon,Andrew Miller,Justin Miler.
    Would consider LeBlance as a veteram LHp swingman.Enough of Jeff Albert and maybe Maddux has gotten stale.Schildt ?

    Time to move TO down a spot or two in the batting order.He is getting into a funk.Still think Goldy hitting 2nd is dumb.He belongs 4th.Did you all hear that Molina hasn`t had a XBH in 64 ABS.Why not;
    Carlson
    Edman
    Arenado
    Goldschmidt
    O`Neill

    Gant had proved he could not be relied on because he couldn`t get the ball over the plate .Lane Thomas needs regular playing time and he was not getting it here.Happ and Lester ae not the moves many wanted but they should provide innings enough to keep the team in the games and ease some of the load on the bullpen.Gant and Oviedo lasted 5 innings rarely.

    Forsch and Willie hit it exactly.Cards got 2 guys who the FO hopes can keep Cards head above water while youngsters develop and Flaherty/Mikolas rehab.Doubtful either Happ/Lester will be back next year .So Cards will lose Happ,Lester,CMartinez,Justin Miller,Andrew Miller,Luis Garcia, LeBlanc,Kim,Wainwright( unless he wants to return)

    Reyes walks caught up with him.Just hope Shildt is quicker realizing when a pitcher do9esnt have jacksh*t.A little effort from the catcher wouldnt hurt either.

    IMO CMartinez,PoncedeLeon,Gant,Miller,LeBlanc are gone after the season.
    Wainwright and Molina retire after the season.
    Jose Rondon,Moroff,Carpenter,Nogowski,Justin Williams,Lane Thomas,Hurst all probable roster deletions via trade/DFA etc.

    I think Waddell gets a chance to show if his time at Memphis helped him .Guys like Helsley,Elledge,Whitley,Woodford,Quezada,Oviedo, A.Rondon etc keep learning the hard way at the MLB level.It will be a grit your teeth and grin thru this remainng season IMO.

    pretty pathetic.Time to take out the trash and find some of these guys new places to try to play.CMart is awful.DeJong is lost at the plate.Gant is getting a reality check.Time to do somrthing to shake up this dead ballclub.

    The thing that still is bothersome is that Carpenter is still not producing (I know it is Spring training) but ONE hit ? Brian saying Carp hitting into hard luck? IMHO Caprp is still around simply because of his contract……I wonder how long aq lesh he gets into the season.Maybe he will wake up and show some signs of life tis next several games….

    looks like Thomas just got the CF job for a while.O`Neill in LF and Carlson in RF.Dean and Williams as backups.

    veteran RH bat with 3 plus years MLB excperience.Seems like a good guy to have as depth .Hope he would be okay with staying at Memphis as veteran depth.

    Cards get C Ali Sanchez from Mets for cash considerations per Rotoworld.He goes on the 40-man roster.A defensive first young catcher.

    Cards got rid of the worst defensive OF of the bunch.He couldn`t steal bases,not much offense,35 years old…why not give the kids the jobs…plus Edman is able to play OF…..IMO Cards FO is going to get a SP and a INF-OF utility guy…….

    just saying a little patience would not hurt for some fans.Cards have showed patience with Plummer so fans are being dumb by thinking Gorman should be traded. It just is quite ridiculous IMO.The smart move is to develop Gorman at 1B-3B-LF….
    As for his lack of speed..Greg Luzinski played LF…

    Glad Gorman is here.Just 20 years old and can play 3B,learn 1B and OF.LH bat .Cards have waited years for Nick Plummer so why not keep Gorman. Continue to develop Gorman at3B-1B-LF-RF.Gorman is still likely 2 years away from StLouis and Montero has not been dazzling,Mendoza looks like glove first 3B…
