We’ve all seen it. It’s only been 6 games — a super small sample — but it’s been a bad 6 games for Luke Gregerson. He’s allowed 5 ER (7.94 ERA), allowing 12 of 27 batters to reach base while collecting just 2 strikeouts. After being one of baseball’s most durable and consistent relievers for [...]

However, the Cardinals made a serious impact move by bringing on Jeff Albert to fill the position.

Additionally, John Mabry, though he had some merits as an [...]
