2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Shortstop

Posted: February 6, 2014 at 10:35 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Note: this is an ongoing series previewing the Cardinals. You can find catchers here, first base here, second base here, and third base here. I rooted hard for Peter Kozma. I really did. The Cardinals’ first-round pick in 2007, Kozma escalated through the system based mostly on the merits of his glove, which I’ll admit was terrific last […]

Posted: February 5, 2014 at 8:11 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Note: this is an ongoing series previewing the Cardinals. You can find catchers here, first base here, and second base here. Well, the hometown hero is gone. After putting on a post-season performance that’ll be remembered in St. Louis likely for the rest of its existence, David Freese had a terrific 2012 season, posting a […]

And on we roll around the horn from behind the plate to the first stop on the basepaths. Cardinals fans were lucky enough to witness one of the greatest hitters in history manning first from 2004-2011. When he moved on, it wasn’t unreasonable to expect at least a bit of a drop in production, but […]

2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Catchers

Posted: January 30, 2014 at 9:58 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Two more wins. That’s all they needed. In a season where the Cardinals managed a total of 106 wins (regular and post-season), all they had to do was win two more, and the Commissioner’s Trophy would have found its way yet again to the Gateway to the West. In 2011, they won a total of […]

Posted: November 25, 2013 at 9:42 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

So. I’d began writing the draft of a Hot Stove Preview for the Cardinals, but then I got lazy and completely forgot to finish it up. In the meantime, the Cardinals managed to solve their two biggest positional problems via trades and free agency. Where does that leave this article? Good question. Obviously the Cardinals […]
