That is a huge loss for the Cardinals, though he has not been as strong as last year, you know they were just waiting for him to blossom again this year. How is the Cards Farm system and are they going to be able to produce a solid/good pitcher?

After the Walters kid they called up to replace Penny the only other starter they have on their 40 man is Adam Ottavino - former 1st round pick, low-to-mid 90's fastball, good slider. I've read he could be a good back of the rotation guy, but only time will tell. The next few weeks and the performances of these guys will tell us a lot about just how much trouble the Cards could be in.

Could be career ending. I hope that is not true, I do not wish that upon any player. More than likely it will be 3 months to a season.

Thanks for the Info, going to be very interesting to see how this plays out...and of course no one wants to see an opponent with a career ending injury (or even an injury at all, but that is part of the game). I (speaking for all of sun deck I'm sure) hope that Loshe can kick this thing and come back healed. (after the Reds are like 10 games up :thumbup:)

2 down. Penny is already out (just one start, probably).

We also won't see Oswalt against Houston.
