Believe it or not, we’re 1/9th of the way through the season already.

Last 6 games 4-2 ADAM WAINWRIGHT
Overall Record 12-6
Lineups Used last 6 games 5 who cares?
Different Lineups Used Overall 9 ADAM WAINWRIGHT
Injuries Randal Grichuk, Yadier Molina (he’s back), Jason Heyward (seems minor) and ADAM WAINWRIGHT
Biggest Concern ADAM WAINWRIGHT
Lacking Offense/SP/RP ADAM WAINWRIGHT

In case you haven’t heard – ADAM WAINWRIGHT is hurt. Forever. Ok, for the rest of the year but it feels like forever. I could tell you that the last time Waino was hurt for the season the Cardinals won the World Series but they had Chris Carpenter then and a big hitter called Albert Pujols.

This is bad. Really Bad. It’s not good. It’s bad.

The Cardinals have just lost 2 games in a row for the second time this season. Also just the second time the pitching has allowed 10 runs over two games. Injuries to Molina and Heyward have caused some different lineups to be used. Matt Adams is hitting .232 with 2 HRs. Michael Wacha pitches tonight and the thought that he would be the key to the season is now confirmed. Michael Wacha IS THE KEY. If he can become an ace – and a low pitch count ace – the Cardinals can continue to contend. Matt Carpenter continues to roll and hit doubles and the team added 7 home runs to it’s season total over the last 6 games. The Cardinals are in first today by 1 game over the Cubs, who appear to be pretty consistent at this point. Which way do they go from here?
