Im not going to go that far. They lost their best pitching prospect to a Tommy John surgery and I still like CMart and Wacha moving forward. Gyorko has also been good (too good) so in a way I agree with you but I also like Gyorko in the lineup. I just dont think he'll produce like he has moving forward but there are a few players that could end up getting better, too. We need to see Weaver pitching for the rest of this season and Reyes and Flaherty into next season. Lynn is the type of guy that would be good to bring back because he always seems to be really solid at the start and a nonfactor by the end of the season and that sounds good to me. I kinda hope he isn't gone or else they were really stupid for not getting rid of him at the trade deadline. I get the frustration with the bats but thats also the only reason they had the win streak in the first place. That and Rosenthal. The power has been there and the offense has been there recently. Just look at the scores of the games. Right now the Cardinals are 8th in MLB in OPS, 8TH in AVG and 5th in OBP, 14th in Total Based and 20th in Home Runs. Its not great but its also not the reason why they aren't going to win a World Series. Their pitching and defense right now is not good. The elephant in the room is Molina. He is the top regression candidate as far as I can tell and the Cardinals have a guy that needs to be put into a rotation and Molina needs to let that happen. I was under the assumption that the Cardinals will be a big spender next free agency. They almost have to be. They probably need to pick up 2 guys in the bullpen almost guaranteed. From there, Lynn or a starting pitcher. Once you get those 3 guys, they wont probably be in the running for the top few hitters so...Im not sure what the plan is.
