I love Lance Lynn. Please, remember that as we move through this article, because it's going to get negative. Why wouldn't I like him, though? He's been a huge part of some very successful Cardinals teams. He competes his hind end off and when it's all over he hams it up
Many fans this year have discussed the idea of moving Michael Wacha to the bullpen. I've been one of them myself. It seemed to make sense. His velocity has been up and he typically fades down the stretch due to his bouts with shoulder issues. Fortunately for the St. Louis
In this episode of the Bird Law podcast, Rusty Groppel and Adam Butler talk over the recent, and somewhat surprising, trade of Mike Leake. In addition to the trade, they talk over the future of Lance Lynn and how young pitchers, such as Luke Weaver and Jack Flaherty, could fit

As I sit down to ponder Redbird musings on a beautiful Saturday in South St. Louis city, I am thinking about Johnny's Restaurant in
Every week (likely every Friday morning) I’ll post “Buy or Sell” – where I give a thumbs up or thumbs down to various Cardinals trends/topics/musings that are commonly discussed throughout the week.
With that said, let’s get underway for the week of July 23rd.
