After today, Adam would next be able to start July 9, if the 5th starter gets skipped due to the off day on the 8th. That would put him in line to start Sunday the 14th, the day before the AS break begins. That would nix an AS game start. He could then start on the 19th, the first game after the break. That would maximize his number of starts for the Cards.

Or, he could go on the 10th with an extra days rest, then be eligible to start the AS game with an extra day rest. Then, his next start depends on how many innings he went in the AS game, and where Mike wanted to start up the rotation after the break. He would almost certainly end with one fewer regular season start. That could end up being significant given the NL Central race.

Will have to see what happens.

As far as the rotation - interesting point if they try and maximize getting AW on the mound around the AS break or just leave the starters in current order. I am guess barring injury or rain out we see everyone twice more before the break:

AW:  Today and next Wed. against Houston - then chance to start AS game
Westbrook: Friday Marlins and Thursday Cubs
Joe K: Sat. Marlins and Friday Cubs
Lynn: Sun. Marlins and Sat. Cubs
Miller: Tues Houston and Sun. Cubs

9 coming up against Marlins, Astros, and Cubs - want to be back in 1st place at the break.

I don't know if it would have mattered much with the way the pitching has been so up and down during our lil funk but I think it would have been better for all if Kelly started at least 1 game during this stretch of time off. Then again it would have pushed everyone back.

Holliday back in action as the DH tonight and also back in the three hole. Kozma sits in favor of D-day Descalso.

GO CARDS!

I don't see how Descalso can't play a platoon role at SS for the near future. His hitting is better than it's ever been and makes up for some range he might lack. I'm also aware that he might be one of those guys who can get overexposed.

completely agree, how descalso doesn't get to platoon with Kosma is crazy. It is amazing we have 3 guys who are mid 100's on the bench. I can live with cruz, but robinson and wiggington are hurting. and with Kosma aready looking like he is destined for the mendoza line, we need everybody to be able to at least bat .250 as a sub or PH.

With first open there thought they would be very careful with Trout  - but challenged him first pitch fastball and Trout delivered.

Need to seal the deal on this series. When was Mujica's last save btw?

Nice couple of plays by Adams.
