Brian you comment about not needing the 5th starter again until the 27th drove me to go out and look at the schedule. Something else jumped out at me. Because of having 21 games in 20 days between July 23rd and August 12 -right after finally needing a 5th start again on the 27th with a doubleheader on the 30th - will need a 6th starter just a few days later in one of the DH games unless someone goes on short rest or they try a bullpen game, which I think would be unlikely not wanting to burn up a pen with no off days in a long stretch. 

If Martinez can get 3 effective starts in at Memphis this month - he goes tomorrow night on the 11th - he might earn a start in the bigs by the end of the month.

Of course Carpenter could be a factor by the 30th also. He is the wildcard.

I wouldn't mind seeing Lyons if a sixth starter is needed.

C. Carp first rehab is this coming Monday 7/15.  If he pitches every 5th day:
2nd rehab  7/20
3rd rehab 7/25
Possibly available for 1st MLB start 7/30/13.

Yes, I can dream.

That actually seems like exactly what the plan is with Martinez and Wacha as the backup plan.

Martinez keeps getting jerked around so much between the pen and getting "stretched back out as a starter" that's it's hard to imagine that they could use him as a back up starter right now.  I'm confused by their use of Martinez

Maybe they should consider using a 5th starter anyway.

Expecting anything out of Carpenter is borderline delusional.

Expecting a positive post from you is delusional. Did you even enjoy 2006 or 2011 titles? Do you enjoy following the cardinals? Or are you just the official voice of doom for the team? If they can't do anything right for you why even bother being a fan of this team? Take the good, deal with the bad, just watch the games, and try to enjoy it is just a game.

And we aint done squat since the first.  Its 2-1 Redbirds in the bottom of the 5th.  Nine Cardinals in a row have been set down.  We are messing around, letting the Cubs stay with us, stay close.  Sooner or later bad things could happen.  We need to bear down, get some offense going.

Here comes Siegrist in his first true high-pressure situation in the majors. See how he handles it.

Siegrist teased Borbon with that fastball.

He strikes out the two he faced with a little help from the umpire on the second one.

Talk about fooling around with hitters. Siegrist can do it with his fastball alone. Such deception.

We win and to celebrate maybe I will gave away my Rick Sutcliffe in a Cardinals uniform card to a lucky Cubs fan.

I thought the team looked lethargic today.  Looked to me like they were just going through the motions.  No intensity, desire, drive, etc.  We were fortunate to win today.
