Lance Lynn:

“There’s no talks. There’s been zero communication, whatsoever. I’m sure whenever the time comes — when the World Series is over and five days after, I’m sure somebody will talk to me. I just don’t know who it is. They’ve had a whole season. Five days isn’t going to matter. But I just work here.”

to me, you gotta have that stabilizing Pitcher. If your gong to let the kids play in the rotation you need that guy...Waino was that guy, a good cardinal but on the decline. To me, Lance Lynn is a #3 or #2 who can be used to teach along with Waino the right way. Id love to have hm past this year.

Judging by Lynn's comments the past couple of days, I don't really expect him back at all at this point. He definitely doesn't seem happy in STL. Of course, I don't know that I blame him.

Both Lynn and Pham had quotes since Leake was dealt that were essentially, "What do I know, I just work here."

I think both see what we the fans have seen over the last few years. Lots of talk about winning, but generally inaction from the front office when it comes time. The front office is gun shy.

Not surprised Siegrist got claimed. He gets healthy and puts together a good first half next season he'll net the Phillies a nice prospect or two.

Carpenter like out for a few days with his shoulder injury.

Cardinals acquire RHP Juan Nicasio from the Phillies for 2B Eliezer Alvarez.

A bit odd since Nicasio is a pending free agent and since it's after August 31 will not be eligible for postseason play, but he could help them get there. There's also hints that the Cardinals tried to acquire him in August but the Pirates didn't want to deal him to them. They get a month to try to sell him on STL because I hear they'd like to keep him.

And Alvarez was likely a target to be cut from the 40 man in the offseason anyway, so not a big loss there. Been in the system six years and only completely healthy for one, it sounds like.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina and former Yankees great Jorge Posada have each set up fundraising sites aimed at helping Puerto Rico.
