St Louis win streak at 14 games. How much longer can it go? The problem with an extended win streak in MLB is it wears on the strong part of your bullpen. The Indians won over 20 games in a row in Sept of 2017 and were knocked out of the playoffs in the opening round. Over the top, as racing handicappers would say. Gallegos has been one of the reasons for the big turnaround as the Cards bullpen was one of the worst in MLB in the first half of the season. Gallegos has pitched the L2 days and 5 of the last 7. Quite a few high profile relievers have pitched each of the last 2 days: Gallegos, Seewald (Sea), Joe Smith (Sea), Kenley Jansen and Treinen of the Dodgers, Melancon of SD, Hendricks, Kimbrel and Bummer of the White Sox and Cessa and Garrett of the Reds, I thought the over 139 1/2 salami was worth a play, with a number of taxed bullpens.
