before tonight's game...
The current trend: downward, with the Cardinals having lost five of their last seven games. Since smashing their way to a 7-1 road trip through Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, the Cardinals are 3-5 and have averaged only 3 runs per game.

And the Cardinals are 1-3 since the end of the trade deadline.
Cardinals starters have a 5.51 road ERA that ranks 26th overall, and 14th in the NL.

They also rank 14th overall in the league in overall walk rate and have the worst road walk rate in the NL.

The starters’ strikeout-walk ratio is tied for the worst in the National League.

This was depressingly predictable. We have no 5th starter.

Just you wait until Adelberto Mejia is stretched out to 3 1/3 innings.

I still think we should have tried to stretch Martinez out for two months. Problem solved, probably. Then we would have just had to trade for a reliever and let Gallegos close.

Is this the game we get no hit? I feel like it is inevitable that it will happen sometime this year.

Moving forward, this [expletive] lineup will continue to make just about any substandard starting pitcher look good. And nothing we can do about it except swap one or two replacement level players with other replacement level players riding the bench. Kiss our ass Mo.

The irony of the Wheeler trade talks is the Mets have a better roster.
