12:07pm: The Cardinals will send the Mariners around $17MM, Rosenthal tweets.

10:12am: In a surprising development, the Cardinals have dealt righty Mike Leake to the Mariners. Young infielder Rayder Ascanio will go to St. Louis in the swap, with $750K of international bonus pool spending capacity and unannounced cash considerations also heading to Seattle.

It's an ok move if they reinvest the money in the big league club moving forward.

And a result of the Leake move, the Cardinals will start top prospect Jack Flaherty vs. the Giants on Saturday afternoon.

Flaherty's debut earlier than expected. He'll start tonight rather than tomorrow afternoon.

I will be interested to see what they do with Carp since he left the game yesterday and then post game said his shoulder ailment is chronic and been bothering him all season. With the call ups I am thinking they might shut him down to see if anyone emerges in order to determine if Carp is expendable..more importantly, worth anything to any suitors. I am in favor of shipping him for value

Yeah Matt Adams had a good start too and he's returned to the mean.

Saturday: Wacha (12-7, 3.99) vs. Hendricks (6-5, 3.35)
Sunday: Lynn (11-7, 3.01) vs. Quintana (10-11, 4.25)

Thoughts?

Cubs win two of three and put the Cardinals away for good.

For the fake drama that is this September, there is still a very good chance the Cardinals finish 10 games back in the division.

The best thing that could happen is for them to miss the playoffs. If they get in, it's going to make management too comfortable with this roster.

No worries. Three games this weekend with Pirates. Then Cubs and then Brewers. 4-6, at best the last 10 games.

Cardinals win 4-3 tonight in Pittsburgh. Blown save by Rivero for the Buccos in the 9th.

Lynn vs. Cole tomorrow. Gant vs. Taillon on Sunday.

So 1-2 is in the books. 7 games left. So I am thinking they go 3-4. Actually I had them 2-1 against Pirates
But it might be kind of fun, who knows.
