I’m not excited yet about Carp’s injury.  It’s the first start of spring, and him not putting much mileage on his arm this spring is probably an ok thing anyway.  That said, clearly we have to be concerned long term.  We already took a look at the internal candidates to replace AW, and the results were something like 1.5-2 WAR (for that starter slot) in the best case out of the replacement.  If Carp were to go down, we’d be looking at replacing him with likely a 1-1.5 WAR pitcher.


lboros had a front page post at VEB this morning in which he talked about the Maple Street Press Cardinals Annual.  It’s a worthy purchase if you have a few bucks laying around.


The Cardinals site has some limited video of Matias (H/T to Future Redbirds among others)


I created a Facebook page for those that would rather follow us there than on Twitter or via RSS.


Also, don’t forget about the GHG mailbag (mailbag@gashousegraphs.com) if you have Cardinals questions or saber questions in general.





We’re adding a new feature, the Gas House Graphs mailbag.  If you have questions about the Cardinals or sabermetrics in general, fie off an email to mailbag@gashousegraphs.com and you’ll likely get an answer from one (or more) of our authors here on the blog.

Additionally, we’ll put the email address in a handy location over on the sidebar.

On an unrelated note, if you subscribed to our RSS feed early on in our existence, it has since been switched over to full articles for your convenience.  You probably need to re-subscribe to get that feature.  If anything appears off, just let me know.  Thanks for reading, and we hope you’re enjoying GHG!
