Who will be sharing saves with Isringhausen?

Postby stumpak » Sun Apr 01, 2007 4:56 pm

Since the bards are not comfortable letting him pitch on consecutive days yet, who is next in line? Brad Thompson? Whoever it is should be good for a few saves this month until Isringhausen is 100%.

the early speculation is thompson. ultimately it depends on a) who is pitching well and b) the matchups.

Yeah it could be anyone... Thompson is the front runner for opportunities, but are you really confident with someone who looks like this?

Good Point! LOL!

Seriously, Cards Fans, what are the chances that Wainwright or Looper get pulled from the rotation if old spaghetti arm fails?

As a Wainwright owner, I would not mind a Papelbon-esque year.

When Mulder comes back in June/July, it will most likely be Looper going back to the pen (I think Wainwright will pitch well and stay in the rotation), and if Isringhausen is faltering, Looper could take over. But I don't think they will pull one of them from the rotation unless Isringhausen is just absolutely terrible, and that would be in an emergency. I think Izzy is in for a big year, he wasn't healthy last year and he's going to be 100 percent this year.
