I feel as though I keep harping on the subject, but the St. Louis Cardinals must look for a starting pitcher prior to the trading deadline.
Cardinal GM, John Mozeliak, has said he wants some type of clarity on the status of Chris Carpenter by July. Well John, I think you got a hint of what's going on with Carpenter with this article: http://tinyurl.com/7hmtln7 .
I just don't see how St. Louis can feel comfortable believing that Carpenter will start even 1 game, much less pitch for 2-1/2 months. As the article says, "He has been unable to maintain the strength in the shoulder that he needs to pitch."
St. Louis now has Carpenter iffy at best. Jaime Garcia is out for...well, nobody knows for sure. And, Lance Lynn is showing signs of coming back to earth with 2, less-than-impressive starts. Although Roy Oswaltindicated that St. Louis was one of the cities he'd be willing to play for, St. Louis never really made a serious effort to sign Oswalt.
The Cardinals have too many concerns in the rotation to not take a look at trading for another starter. And by the way, how about putting Lance Lynn in a struggling bullpen after signing a starter?
