St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis has been down lately and it has seen them slip to third in the NL Central. They are having some big outbursts at the plate but cold spells too. They need to smooth that out. The offense at is peak can be awesome. Marcel Ozuna is looking way more comfortable this season than he did a year ago. He is in the top five in RBIs in the league.
Dakota Hudson is a young arm the Cardinals are hoping for a lot from this season. So far they have not got much as walks still plague him, homers too. His splits are saying fade the Cardinals here. His ERA is double what it is at home on the road. Jordan Hicks and John Gant are dominating in high leverage spots. If Hudson can get a lead they can lock it down.
I am still not sure what Texas is. Are they a bad team that is getting a bit lucky or are they just not as bad as you think. They are still tops in the Majors in runs per game so they can’t be that bad right. Joey Gallo is actually making contact Shin Soo Choo and Hunter Pence are playing great. It is the sustainability of it all that is really in question. I keep waiting for the downturn but it hasn’t happened yet.
Jesse Chavez has been used in the rotation and in the pen throughout his career. He has made one start this season but it was more of an opener situation. It is hard to know what the Rangers have in mind for this spot. What we do know is that Chavez has been terrible this season. At home especially – ERA over 10. Texas does not have these things figured out like the Rays do.
