The Cards pen is now basically Mujica and a bunch if rookies. If you call that fixing the pen, awesome
I say it would considering that it looks to have worked thus far.
I remember last season people saying "oh we're waiting for that bloop and blast to shoot up his ERA and return to his norm". That didn't happen. He's pitching lights out this year and the Cardinals are using him differently than how he was used in FL. As fangraphs shows, the Cardinals pretty much eliminated the FA (I think it's 4 seam fastball) from his pitch selection to where it's a minor pitch he uses and completely eliminated his change up. Both pitches were being hammered before he came to the Cardinals. You can keep hoping he blows up though.
