Jason Motte is busy buying his ticket back to AAA--two baserunners allowed so far. Can't put the weakest hitters away.

:-P

I was at yesterday's Cardinals game. When Reyes came in to close, Kyle McClellan was warming in case Reyes got into trouble.

It probably doesn't mean anything, but the Cardinals brass has really liked McClellan since he stole a job last season with an incredible spring. I wouldn't go picking him up or anything, but putting him on a watch list may not be a horrid idea.


That was quick.

Motte gives up 2 baserunners, McClellan in for his first save opp of the season.


He looked very good.

He was fairly solid last season before he seemed to wear out. I have a feeling this job is going to be put in the hands of Perez as soon as he is ready. Anyone have any reasons he didnt go to Franklin tonight??

Lindstrom blew the save but got lucky with the win, who would take over for him?

Is that his first BS? I don't think there's a lot of competition in that bullpen.

I had same question and just checked, he pitched the last two nights before tonight, so probably just a night off. Glad I kept Franklin, love seeing Motte choking. Sorry Motte owners. :-]

The dreaded CBC. Josh Kinney could get some save chances as well. This is a complete cluster f--k and we probably should stay clear of it. LaRussa isn't helping Motte's confidence by not letting him sink or swim tonight.
