I still can't believe they put him right back out there as a starter, especially since their bullpen is not good and could use any help.

Yikes. Have to imagine that's probably it for him as a starter in 2018.

Matheny doesn't recognize it, but it's the best move for the Cards. As mentioned above, he could be a force in the bullpen.

His career high IP is 111.1 so he might be done as a starter forever.

Michael Wacha has made 12 starts against the Cubs since the start of the 2015 season. He's given up at least 5 ER in 7 of them. He also gave up 3 ER in an inning the one time he faced the Cubs out of the pen. Oh and he gave up 3 dongs in his one playoff start against the Cubs.

Including the playoffs, since the start of the 2015 season, he's pitched 12.0% of his innings against the Cubs and given up 23.9% of his ER against the Cubs. 30.6% of his HR have been given up to the Cubs. He has an 8.03 ERA against the Cubs and a 3.48 ERA against the rest of the league in that time.

This was said during Saturday's Cardinals radio broadcast. Nevermind that their patron saint is the all-time leader.

It’s clearly affecting him as he’s on pace for a 4.8 WAR season.

Current fWAR:
Contreras: 1.9
Posey: 1.7
Molina: 0.6

I think Molina owes Willy an apology.

To be fair, the guy had a lot on his mind:

https://www.tmj4.com/sports/cardinals-p ... is-haunted



The video shows Martinez in a hotel room with other members of his team there to console him, including outfielders Marcell Ozuna and Tommy Pham and catcher Franciso Pena.

Describing what happened, a rough translation of the video indicates Martinez says "a ghost has appeared right here in the room." The caption also mentions how he "can't sleep alone" because of the "ghost in my room."
