 The Rays pitched to Miguel Cabrera with 1st base open? When does that happen? Probably the last time we’ll see that for a while.
 Kyle Lohse is the reason why StL has been able to handle Wainwright’s injury. They were depending on Carpenter, Wainwright, and Garcia to carry the staff.
I’m actually surprised there hasn’t been an article on him. I don;t see many other as compelling pitching stories than what Lohse is doing.
Through just 10 starts in 2011, Lohse has surpassed his combined WAR of 2009 and 2010. I’m not a Lohse fan, at all, but he has replaced Wainwright’s expected production. Not likely to continue, but 10 starts of 2.06 ERA is already in the bank. …and we thought Charlie Morton has having a turnaround season.
Get a Brain! Morans. Heh Heh.

Bill Hall went 4-4 not 2-4

Lohse has done a good job of matching Wainwright’s production, but it was actually Kyle McClellan who was inserted into the starting rotation because of Waino’s injury. McClellan has pitched solid as well (for his first season as a SP).

>Thanks to Hart, the Braves didn’t have to worry much about this one.
I don’t recall the Braves moving back to Milwaukee. Might wanna fix that.

It has all worked out beautifully so far.
Carpenter remained the ace and is putting up a ~3 WAR (pace) season.
Garcia moved up to #2 and is putting up a ~6 WAR season (pace).
Lohse moved up to #3 and is putting up a ~5.5 WAR season.
Westbrook remained the #4 and is putting up a 1.5 WAR season.
And McClellan steps in as the #5 and is putting up a 1 WAR season.
While Garcia was not expected to put up a 6 WAR year, he was expected to be 3+. Lohse was not expected to be anywhere near where he is, and is finally earning his money.
Just like 2010, StL has “the big 3″ on the mound, only Lohse has replaced Wainwright in the trio.
McClellan is really replacing Suppan.
