Walking into the foyer of the main house, Im greeted by a dramatic open living room flanked by two curving stairways leading up to the second floor. The centerpiece of the living room is a double-sided fireplace constructed of natural river rocks. In fact, every surface is natural: from the wooden ceilings and the quartz floors to the central pillar, which is an entire rough-hewn tree trunk. The only feature vying for my attention is the actual outdoors. Huge windows showcase the soaring landscape and wide-open views of theproperty. Moving into the kitchen, the counters and sinks echo the natural feel, combining quartz and copper to complement the wood surfaces. Unsurprisingly, the large kitchen leads into a large dining room, where many people could comfortably gather. There is a den with a full bath on this first floor, which could be used as a bedroom or grannys quarters, and a huge high-ceilinged bonus room beyond. This room feels like a ballroom perfect for dancing or maybe a gym or meetingspace.

But after being trounced 15-2 by Cincinnati on Monday night, St. Louis has just a 49.6% chance of making the playoffs according to the Baseball Prospectus Playoff Odds , with New York at 83.3% and San Francisco at 66.8%. Whats most uncharacteristic about this year’s Cardinals is they just arent very good at preventing runs, ranking seventh in the league in both runs per game (4.46) and ERA+ (100). Even despite going a respectable 910 against the Cubs, St. Louis was cuffed for 4.79 runs per game against its closest rivals and outscored by 21 runs. Aside from Carlos Martinez and rookie Alex Reyeswho has all of four starts and 40 big league innings under his beltevery candidate to start for the Cardinals the rest of the way has an ERA of 4.57 or above. That 4.57 belongs to Adam Wainwright, whos having a career-worst season, though his 3.90 FIP at least suggests hes been a bit better than indicated. Mike Leake (4.72 ERA, 3.91 FIP) has been a disappointment in the first year of a five-year, $80 million deal, and Jaime Garcia (4.67 ERA, 4.48 FIP), Michael Wacha (4.93 ERA, 3.80 FIP) and rookie Luke Weaver (5.70 ERA, 4.32 FIP) were all pummeled so hard by the Reds on Monday night that its difficult to imagine manager Mike Matheny having faith in any of them when that rotation spot comes up again on Oct. 1. Wacha, who’s made just three appearances since returning from a five-week absence due to shoulder inflammation, isnt even stretched out to start, though he did take his lumps for 60 pitches in the aforementioned outing.
