Bullpen Good and Bad

While we thought the ‘pen was going to be an anchor for the Cards. The inconsistencies haven’t avoided the pen either, as while Seung-hwan Oh, Kevin Siegrist, and Trevor Rosenthal have been great, the others have not been. Tyler Lyons, Seth Maness, Dean Kiekhefer, and Jonathan Broxton all have ERAs above 4.00. 

More from Adam Wainwright

It is easy to see that this team is simply struggling with inconsistencies across the board. However, I believe that as the season progresses, we will see some more consistency with this team. I feel as if guys like Kolten Wong and Randal Grichuk will see things improve and we should see improvements from Adam Wainwright.

If the Cardinals can count on one other starting pitcher every fifth day to have a consistent outing, things could turn around for this team and we could see them get on a roll. However, they are going to have to prove it against some of the better teams in the league with games against the Giants, Pirates, Astros, Rangers, Cubs, and Royals in June.

This very well could be a make or break month for this team. If they come away with a strong month and get a little more than two wins above .500 they could reestablish themselves as legitimate contenders. However, another mediocre month would create even more questions as this team approaches the July 31st Trade Deadline.
