Posted: March 23, 2016 at 2:55 pm   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals added some middle infield depth early on Friday by signing free-agent shortstop Ruben Tejada to a one year 1.5 million dollar contract.  Tejada, who is 26 years old, was placed on waivers by the New York Mets earlier last week.  Prior to being waived by the Mets, Tejada was scheduled to make $3 […]

The start of October, all the yearly  telltale signs that fall has begun are everywhere:  the days are shorter and nights cooler, the high school down the street is having their homecoming bonfire, and the St. Louis Cardinals are preparing for the playoffs.  Well, the later may not happen every year, but as the Cards […]

Oh, hey there! Been a while, eh? Yeah, I still write for ReviewStl. You’re stuck with me for a while longer, I suppose. Don’t worry, I’ll be trying to write a little bit more than the zero I’ve done recently. But you don’t want to listen to my ramblings, eh? Me neither. You want to […]

Oscar Taveras Always in the Heart of Cardinal Nation

Posted: October 30, 2014 at 8:24 am   /   Featured, Local

One week ago, Cardinal’s nation was dealing with the calamity of being eliminated from the post season by the San Francisco Giants. Today, that loss is put into perspective, by the true tragedy of the death of 22-year old outfielder Oscar Taveras. Early Sunday evening, the sports world was shocked to learn that Taveras and […]

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 […]

2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Third Base

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 […]

2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – Second Base

Posted: February 4, 2014 at 7:28 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

St. Louis has had a bit of a revolving door when it comes to the middle of the infield. Second base has been the worst overall culprit. How bad? The last player to start more than two seasons in a row as the opening day second baseman was Fernando Vina, whose final season with the […]

2014 St. Louis Cardinals Preview – First Base

Posted: February 3, 2014 at 7:22 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

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 […]

St. Louis Cardinals Trade David Freese to Angels for Peter Bourjos

Posted: November 22, 2013 at 4:07 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

After a less-than-stellar 2013 campaign and post-season, the Cardinals have sent David Freese to keep Albert Pujols company in Anaheim. In addition, they’re sending reliever Fernando Salas, who played a vital part in the Cardinals’ s011 championship season but has been used sparingly the last two years. In exchange, the Cardinals get outfielder Peter Bourjos […]
