If we win this one, we can worry less about trying to hit Randy Wells tonight. C'mon Kyle. Get us through!

  Lohse Zambrano 4.07 FIP 3.91 FIP Game 1 of the doubleheader brings Lohse back to the mound after missing about 6 weeks. He hasn't pitched in the majors since...

Futures Game Open Thread

Brett Wallace bats 3rd and plays 3rd for the U.S. team today. Daryl Jones is also on the team, though not in the starting lineup. They're unquestionably our 2 best prospects and are both players...

First Half Relievers

The Cards' pen hasn't pitched nearly as well as the rotation during the first half of the season. Today's thread compares each NL Central team's pen over the season's first half.

Hopefully we'll see this scene repeat itself in an hour and a half or so.

  Thompson Lilly 5.07 FIP 3.92 FIP I guess it's fitting that we're sending up our worst starter against the Cubs' starter most likely to give us fits. It goes...

First Half Pitching

136

Starting pitching will be a key to who wins the NL Central this season. The Cardinals' starters have been the division's best in the first half.

  Pineiro Parra 3.05 FIP 5.09 FIP Going w/ a lefty in game 3 may be just the tonic the Brewers need to get 1 game closer to the Cards b/c we are simply awful...

Current Batting Splits

The Cards' team batting splits are categorized according to how they compare w/ the rest of the NL.

This just in -- the Cards' medical staff seems to be about as good as I am at diagnosing injuries and Colby Rasmus is pretty good. We're halfway home!

  Carpenter Arroyo 2.60 FIP 5.98 FIP In Carp's last start, he was beat around pretty well, garnering a game score of 25 -- the only start of the season in which...

Whither Ludwick

172

Ryan Ludwick has struggled mightily this season. He seems to be overanxious at the plate and, as a result, isn't squaring up the ball the way he did last year.

  Thompson Owings 4.77 FIP 5.39 FIP If Micah Owings were in our starting lineup, his wOBA would be the 2nd best among our starting 9. As it is, it'll probably be...

Put me in, coach

Colby Rasmus isn't playing enough. The Cards' trade for Mark DeRosa may end up making winners of both the Cards and the Indians.

Breakthrough!

Brendan Ryan has been one of the majors' best shortstops this season. This is a result of his tremendous defense and his ability to hit line drives.

Reversal of Fortune

While Wainwright and Wellemeyer have regressed, Joel Pineiro has picked up the slack and had one of the best first halves in the NL so far.

Ryan Franklin has been tremendous for the Cards this season, and a big reason why they're in first place.

Walking Pujols

The Book tells us that it almost never makes sense to intentionally walk Albert Pujols and that managers are really just adding to the Cards' win expectancy when they do.

Revisiting the projections

A few key Cards have underperformed their projections but, on the whole, the Cards' offense hasn't played that much worse than we should have expected.
