Cardinals struggling

The St. Louis Cardinals have given up a combined 31 runs in their last two games, losses to the Royals and Athletics. They've been without former 20-game winners Chris Carpenter and Mark Mulder, and now it looks like Braden Looper's going to be on the shelf for a while after leaving yesterday's game with shoulder tightness. Things got so bad that Tony LaRussa had to send in 3B Scott Spiezio to pitch the final inning on Friday. It's hard to believe that St. Louis is playing .438 baseball this season, isn't it?

Not really all that surprising.. look at our rotation made of relievers and figure it out.. and our only "starter" we signed was Kip Wells.. says a lot.. oh and biggest hitter? Adam Kennedy, also a mega bust..

But I suppose I'd have taken this a year after winning the WS with a bad team!

I think at this point some of the Cards fans wouldn't mind Looper disappearing for a while. LOL It's still early in the season so anything can happen, they just need to get their guys back ASAP.

Sadly Looper has been our best pitcher all year (let me correct that Franklin and Isringhausen have been better, starting pitcher I mean).. It would suck if he's out but the last few games.. he's wearing down and the innings are catching up to him.. not a bright idea keeping him in the rotation either but I was fairly surprised at how well he started the year as our most consistent pitcher giving us each game he went out there the best chance to win with any starter.. if that made any sense.. but right now.. I dont feel any confidence in any of the starters despite Wainwrights 1 hitter his last time out.. he hasnt been that great either..
