Trevor Rosenthal: Less charity and more efficiency on the mound

It’s been a while since Cardinals fans treated social media like a radar reading before the ninth inning, flooding the internet with Rosenthal warnings while quietly looking for shelter.

Could Jason Motte replace Trevor Rosenthal as Cardinals closer?

Last night Trevor Rosenthal blew a save in the Cardinals eventual 4-3 victory over the Cubs.  While that isn't very concerning, considering that Rosenthal had converted 10 straight saves prior to last night, what is concerning is that Trevor now has a 5.19 ERA while allowing 5.7 BB/9.Could Rosenthal's struggles open the door for Jason Motte to return to the closer role?Its possible...
