Adam Wainwright ready to start Game 1 of NLCS for Cardinals
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/9/14) The Cardinals announced starting pitcher Adam Wainwright will start in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Giants. He will be followed by Lance Lynn, John Lackey and Shelby Miller, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Cardinals coach Mike Matheny said Wainwright is perfectly fine heading into the NLCS. There was concern Lynn might have had to start the NLCS opener, if Wainwright was unavailable due to soreness or stiffness.
Lance Lynn ready if Adam Wainwright can't go

|(10/7/14) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn will be an option for a potential Game 5 start in the NLDS or possibly a start in Game 1 of the NLCS if Adam Wainwright is unavailable due to soreness or stiffness, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
"Just making sure that Waino feels right," manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday as the Cardinals prepared to face the Dodgers in Game 4. "We’ve got two guys on regular rest; it wouldn’t be a stretch to have either one of them go. There’s no question that Waino has been fighting it. I haven’t made that a secret, and neither has he. It’s all going to come down to how he feels. The likelihood of him saying, ‘I can’t go’ is very slim. But it is a possibility that something might not feel right."
Wainwright surrendered six earned runs in Game 1 of the NLDS while pitching just 4 1/3 innings. Lynn surrendered two runs in six innings while striking out eight in Game 3.
Cardinals SP Lance Lynn fans eight in Game 2

|(10/5/14) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn struck out eight over six innings of a no-decision Saturday, as his team fell 3-2 to the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Division Series.
Lynn allowed a run to score on a groundout, and another on a single from Adrian Gonzalez in the third inning. He was charged with two runs on seven hits and two walks. Of his 114 pitches, 73 were strikes.
Lance Lynn fans nine in defeat
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/21/14) Cardinals starter Lance Lynn struck out nine over six innings Sunday, but took the loss in a 7-2 defeat to the Reds. Lynn allowed three runs on four hits, including two homers to Jay Bruce, while walking a pair.
Now 15-10 with a 2.73 ERA, Lynn is scheduled to face Arizona on Saturday.
|After a breakout 2012 that strangely left a bad taste in the mouths of Fantasy owners, Lance Lynn took a different path to more or less the same numbers in 2013. OK, so he still had a disastrous August followed by an encouraging September, but while his 2012 was a tale of two seasons, his 2013 was a roller-coaster ride. Using a different delivery after shedding 40 pounds in the offseason, he looked like he might not even make it through April with three ugly starts following a disastrous spring, but then he was a Cy Young candidate over the next nine, posting a 2.10 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Of course, then he had a 6.32 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings over his next eight, followed by a 2.28 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 9.4 strikeouts per nine innings over his next four. And then came the disastrous August. On the one hand, Lynn's high points are so high that Fantasy owners want to believe he's capable of more, but on the other hand, he's now had back-to-back seasons with an underwhelming end result. He's a good source of wins and strikeouts if he lasts until the middle-to-late rounds. Just don't expect smooth sailing for him.
