He has to throw like he did in the first half last year and push himself to be better if he doesn't. If he throws like he did in the first half, it is his to lose and someone else will be out of the rotation before he would be.

I think they'll be fine without Lohse, but much depends on what they know about the pitchers' health. They can survive if one of the top four (Waino, Westbrook, Garcia, Lynn) can't go. Two would be hard. It'll be good to get one of the kids acclimated to the rotation this year. In an ideal world, one more of them replaces Westbrook next year. Break the kids in one at a time.

There's more to Lohse they see that they don't like then just the cost of a contract and an already crowded rotation.

Viva El Bierdos wrote this and I COMPLETELY agree:
Lynn also cites his 18 pitching "wins" as the basis for his entitlement to a spot in the rotation. A pitching "win" has as much to do with a pitcher's run support and the performance of that day's relievers as anything the pitcher does on the mound.
A starting pitcher can surrender six runs in 5 1/3 innings and still manage a "no decision" if his offense hits enough. This was Lynn's fate on June 24 against the Royals when the Cards lost 11-8. A starter can also give up six runs in five innings pitched and earn a pitching "win" if his offense plates nine runs that day. Lynn notched a pitching "win" doing just this on July 27 against the Cubs when the Redbirds won by a score of 9-6. A reliever can be credited with a pitching "win" by throwing a single inning and having his offense score the game-winning run the next half-inning. Lynn earned a pitching "win" in this manner on September 9 against Milwaukee.http://www.vivaelbirdos.com/20...-lance-lynns-to

Either way, I think Lynn has his work cut out for him and, for Cardinals fans, that is a good thing.
2 spots for 4 guys and Garcia's shoulder hanging by a thread.Sounds good to me.I honestly think Miller or Rosenthal could win the NL rookie of the year if they pitched in the rotation for the majority of the year.They are that good (and hungry)
