Cardinals split a double-header yesterday with the Brewers. (You can read the series preview here.) The games encapsulated this entire stupid sport with the Cardinals bullpen shutting down the Brewers over the course of the game’s final 12 outs in Game 1 and barely being able to record an out in Game 2. So it goes. On the second point though, Ben Markham wrote a convincing piece yesterday why the Cardinals should consider Luke Weaver for the bullpen. Ben makes a lot of sense.

- Here’s the daily farm report.
- Lastly, here’s everything you need to keep up on the 2017 Amateur Draft: Scott Hurst profile; Kramer Robertson profile; and here’s the Cardinals draft tracker through the first ten rounds.
That wraps it up, enjoy your Wednesday.
