    Wade LeBlanc

    I thought he would only be skipped once in the rotation. What happened?
    He was real good at times this season and now he hasnt pitched at all since that announcement in late August. To me, he has just as good as stuff as Richard or Stauffer and can go deep into games and can strike alot of people out. I know he is much better at home, so why not start him at home where this year he has a 2.71 ERA?
    Even with that said, the Cardinals have always been known to not hit lefty pitching well. Instead, Chris Young is coming back off being hurt and really taking a chance on him. Hed be great out of the pen at least for a couple innings for sure. Let him pitch!
    He should definitely start vs. Cincinnati when they go back home to help against left-handed sluggers Votto and Bruce. Just surprised he has just vanished basically after being rather effective at times this season and think he could really help. Especially last night when Stauffer only went 5 innings....instead of taxing 5 bullpen arms, why not send out LeBlanc for 3 or 4 innings? Id say that he is rather well rested!
