The latest a game has ended at Busch Stadium III is 2:05 a.m. CT (09/07/12). If this one is eventually finished, it will end much later.
Is Wacha going to be up for good? Im trying to decide whether to put a waiver claim in.

He must already be annoyed with the Fozzy Bear thing, considering he's probably heard it his entire life. lol everyone thinks theyre being clever.

Our #1 SP prospect (and Cardinals have been talked about having the best farm system in MLB)

I would. Yeah, I'm sure he is used to it by now. Last night during the STL broadcast..every time he completed an inning you heard Fozzy Bear say "Waka Waka!"

THANK YOU!

#STLCards have demoted Boggs to AAA Memphis and have promoted Keith Butler (R) from AA.

GTFO AND STAY OUT

I just worry he'll get sent back down again if he hits a rough spot. Top prospect or not, unless hes up permanently hes not really worth the roster spot.

I just wondered if you heard anything about this being a longterm promotion, or just to get his feet wet.

Well Wacha has been getting more attention than Shelby Miller. He dominated in college, dominated spring training (didn't allow a run all ST), dominated AAA (4-0 2.05 ERA 0.95 WHIP 34K/15BB)..his only knock is the Ks..they anticipate his Ks will go up, but they have been average at best so far. Regardless, he has been great. I anticipate he will be on the roster for a while. Garcia is done for the season, and Westbrook MAY be as well. We know Wainwright/Lynn/Miller are here to stay 100%...so that leaves two spots for Michael Wacha, Tyler Lyons, and John Gast. Gast is hurt now, but he is the odd man out regardless.

The ONLY chance I see Wacha being sent back down for an extended period of time is if the Cardinals pick up a SP at the deadline, or Chris Carpenter returns.

From what I've read about Wacha from STL reporters is he is "the real deal"...often compared to Adam Wainwright

Mujica is still the closer, just glad Boggs can't screw this team for the foreseeable future
