The St. Louis Cardinals' bullpen has been fantastic, and might finish the National League Championship Series having gotten more outs than the starting pitchers. Which would also be fantastic, in the strictest sense of the word.
Oddly, though? If one team is better-equipped to deal with a starting pitcher who lasts just one inning, it might be the Milwaukee Brewers. Their roster essentially includes their No. 5 and No. 6 starters from this season, in Chris Narveson and Marco Estrada, both of whom presumably can pitch two or three innings before giving way to the more usual relievers. Meanwhile, with Jake Westbrook left off the NLCS roster, the closest the Cardinals have a "long man" is probably Lance Lynn, who started a dozen games for triple-A Memphis this season.
And it sure looks like both managers will have plenty of chances to test their bullpens.
Stick around, folks. The Cardinals are ahead 5-2, but it's still really really early.
