I bet you didn't know that Lance Lynn's legal first name is Michael. Well, it sure is, but that's not all that he has in common with fellow starters Mike Leake and Michael Wacha. Through the first three turns of the rotation these three have been far and away the

One of my favorite things about following baseball writers over the years has always been seeing their predictions. Even better than that is recapping them at the end of the year to see how many were right. Now that I've got a platform to share my thoughts, I figured I'd
Projecting performance of starting pitchers is always tricky business. Injuries lurk around every corner. When I took a look at each of the Cardinals starters, I assumed a full season's worth of work. It's likely that one or more of them won't reach the games or innings totals I based
