Everyone has the flu. Just a few days after Kolten Wong returned from battling the illness, Carlos Martinez stated in a post-game interview, per Ben Fredrickson of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, that he had been under-the-weather as well.

Down five to 10 pounds from his normal weight because of a flu-like illness that has slowed multiple Cardinals this season and perhaps a bit road weary following a trip to Miami to address a legal matter now hanging over his head, Martinez left the ballpark Saturday unsure if he would make his first career start against the Nationals.

This sickness is spreading through the clubhouse, leaving destruction and sadness in its wake.

Get some iodine!
