    Well that's great...

    However, on the bright side (for me) this means Flaherty should definitely continue to get starts. I know C-Mart is out too, just not sure how long for. Flaherty needs to take this time to continue proving he deserves to be a starter in their rotation for the remainder of the year. Personally I think he already has.

    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Flaherty is in the rotation for good unless they limit innings which they shouldn't. He threw right at 170 last year across all three levels so the gloves should be off I'd think.

    Waino isn't coming back as a starter at this point. I hope he makes it back and somehow closes out a World Series then drives off into the sunset to eat Pappy's BBQ and count his millions in retirement.

    Martinez (once he gets back next week hopefully), Wacha, Mickolas, Flaherty, Weaver is pretty well set in stone. With the lat strain and the bullpen issues the Cards have I'm not going to be shocked to see Reyes turned loose as a bullpen weapon if he can get and stay healthy the rest of the year.

    Now if Matheny would just get his head out of his ass with the lineup the Cards might be okay.

    Carpenter - 1B (2B against lefties with Wong on the bench)
    Pham - CF
    Bader - RF
    Ozuna - LF
    Gyorko - 3B
    Wong - 2B (Martinez at 1B against lefties)
    Munoz - SS
    Kelly - C (Once Yadi is back then bump him up to 6th and drop Wong and Munoz down till DeJong is back)

    There is a lot of flexibility to the roster but Matheny can't even do that right. He's playing a guy with a bad arm and little range at 3B (Carp) and a Gold Glove level 3B (Gyorko) at 2B just to get Jose Martinez's bat in the lineup at the cost of lowering defense at 3 positions.
    I PC Jeff Frye, Ozzie Smith, Jeff Bagwell, and Matt Holiday. Working on 2006-2016 Allen & Ginter sets

    This is a relief to hear from an actual Cardinals fan who watches the games. I keep reading these mlb.com articles (well, only 2 articles actually) talking about the uncertainty of Flaherty's spot in the rotation once Reyes & C-Mart return and how Matheny is saying "he has nothing more to prove, it's just a question we'll have to ask when the others return".
