And basically if either one of them wanted a second Cy Young, they had to step up and have a great post Labor Day run.
Well Lincecum was scratched from his scheduled start with a back issue. My dad thought they were just pushing him to the Dodgers series but it looks like he might actually be hurt.
Which opens it to Carpenter... except that he let up a big fat 6 spot in the third inning and got smacked around in the 9-2 loss to Atlanta today.
One of these guys have better start or else Adam Wainwright might be looking to find room on his mantle.
