The St. Louis Cardinals have finished their 8 game road trip and went 3-5 during the road trip and not winning a single series. The Cardinals are in a free fall. Since June 15th, the Cardinals went from having a 3.5 game lead over the Cincinnati Reds and 4 game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Now they are 2 games back of first place and have gone 6-10 since June 15th. So what can the Cardinals fix?
Find an everyday closer
Even if it’s just for this season, try to see about picking up a reliable everyday closer. Mujica has been decent but he blew the save last night and hasn’t been himself lately, giving up 4 earned runs in his last 5 appearances. This is something you don’t want to see with your closer. Brian Wilson is still a free agent and will be throwing for teams later this month. The St Louis Cardinals need to be one of the first team to bring in Brian Wilson.
