Hey Cardinals bullpen... nice job

You would think that after hanging a 9 spot on you in the bottom of the 9th inning last night, you'd button down a little more.

Maybe show a little bit of moxie and say "Hey, let's not see that happen again" especially when you know the Reds won tonight and you don't want to fall 3 back in the NL Central race.

You would think that.

But a 3 run 8th inning homer by Dexter Fowler and a walk off shot by Chris Ianetta later and the Cardinals pen coughed it up again.

Granted, blowing a 3 run 8th inning lead isn't as bad as blowing a 6 run 9th inning lead... but that's not the kind of comparison you brag about winning.

Ubaldo Jimenez is going tomorrow against Chris Carpenter... could be a great game.
Let me recommend to Tony LaRussa that Carpenter goes 9.
