That could have been a whole lot better.

That could have been a whole lot worse.

Both things are true as we dig through the rubble of a 2-2 split against a bottom dwelling foe… that somehow vaulted the Cardinals into a first place tie in the NL Central.

First the bad news.

+ The Justin Masterson trade is officially a bust. His ERA with the Cardinals is 7.90 and he’s surrendered 34 hits and 11 walks in 27.1 innings of work. His last three starts, he’s failed to get past the 5th inning and has given up 5 runs in 4 of his 6 starts as a Cardinal. As the calendar turns to September and the roster gets expanded, he can’t continue to start for a team that has playoff aspirations. A low-risk gamble that didn’t pan out.
