Cardinals Crush Reds, Rebound in Road Finale

Posted: August 5, 2013 at 12:03 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

Well then. Baseball’s a funny sport sometimes. Really, all the time. The unlikeliest of heroes can step up at any time, while the most dependable hitters can end up wearing the golden sombrero when it counts the most. The least successful teams in baseball will still win about 40% of the time, while even the […]

To update my earlier article on the Cardinals’ potential trades, the organization did complete a trade this afternoon sending left-handed relief pitcher Marc Rzepczynski to the Indians in exchange for infielder Juan Herrera. Rzepczynski was acquired in 2011 by the Cardinals and was an integral player on the 2011 World Series winning team.  In 2012 […]

With the MLB trade deadline now just a day away (Wednesday 3pm) it seems less and less likely that the Cardinals will be making a trade.  This year so far has been relatively quiet around the league; the Cubs have had their fire sale moving Matt Garza and Alfonso Soriano, but as of yet no […]

Posted: July 22, 2013 at 11:22 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

He’s not exactly known for his defense. In fact, he ranks well below average according to the metrics. Still, that hasn’t stopped him from making some pretty exceptional plays when it’s counted. Known primarily as the best hitter in baseball with runners in scoring position the last two seasons, it’s easy to remember that Allen […]

They’re not always pretty, but damn if they don’t get the job done. One a night that went back and forth more than a girl trying to decide her outfit for the night, the Cardinals managed to crank out 21 hits en route to a 10-6 win over the Cubs. With the win, the Cardinals […]

“Even the Mona Lisa’s falling apart.” After a fortuitous start to the season, the Cardinals managed to hit a rough patch for a couple weeks. While the Cardinals managed to go 35-18 in the first two months, they stumbled at the end of June and lost seven of nine games, going 14-14 in June as […]

The Kelly Identity

Posted: June 22, 2013 at 3:46 pm   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

If you asked Joe Kelly to define his role with the Cardinals, he probably would have been more assertive last year than right now. When Jaime Garcia began to display arm problems last year in the middle of the season, the Cardinals brought Kelly up as some temporary relief, and he did so well they […]

Matt Carpenter: Wunderkind

Posted: June 15, 2013 at 9:49 am   /   Local, Sports, St. Louis Cardinals

He was meant to be a stopgap. With 2011 first-round pick Kolten Wong hitting his way through the minors, he was asked to learn to play second simply so the Cardinals could get his bat in the lineup. Along with shortstop, second base has been the biggest area of need for the Cardinals the past […]
