St. Louis Cardinals Holding 7-Game Intrasquad World Series The Right Way

While the World Series is being held in Kansas City and San Francisco, the St. Louis Cardinals have opened an intrasquad The Right Way World Series being played exclusively at Busch Stadium.  “The Royals and Giants are having their World Series and that’s fine,” said Cardinals team chairman Bill DeWitt. “But it robs the fans of this great game if a year goes by without a...

Analyzing the ascent of Jacob Wilson through the St. Louis Cardinals farm system

In June of 2012, the St. Louis Cardinals drafted a senior second baseman from the University of Memphis in the 10th round. When a team selects a senior in the top 10 rounds, they are usually trying to save money, money that would probably go to a young stud prep player. For Jacob Wilson, this was the exact scenario that played out. The Cards inked Wilson to a $20,000 bonus, well...

Cardinals Rumors: Could shop outfielders this winter

The St. Louis Cardinals won 90 games this season and a National League Central division championship, but lost in five games in the NLCS to the San Francisco Giants. Heading into the off season, the Cardinals will look to improve on an offense that was 23rd in the Major Leagues in runs scored. With much depth in the outfield, the Cardinals could shop one or more to improve next season...

St Louis Cardinals 2014 season in review

Despite a disappointing exit in the NLCS, 2014 has to be considered a successful season for the St. Louis Cardinals. The pitching was excellent, especially from the top of the rotation with Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn. While the offense scuffled for most of the season, the power came out in the postseason and the team seemed to always find ways to score in the late innings to...

Cardinals Rumors: St Louis will attempt to trade Randy Choate

Randy Choate is the quintessential specialist: left-handers hit only .093/.205/.147 against him in 2014 (7 for 75), but righties slammed him to the tune of .385/.458/.481 (20 for 52). That split made Cardinals manager Mike Matheny reluctant to use him for full innings, and as a result, Choate threw only 36 innings, expensive innings as Choate was paid $3 million in 2014. He'...

Partial Unofficial Look at 2015 Cardinals Spring Schedule

A very early look at Spring Training 2015 for the St. Louis Cardinals. With the 2014 World Series just getting underway, it may seem too early to be thinking about 2015 Spring Training. Then again, with the St. Louis Cardinals having been eliminated in the National League Championship Series, perhaps thoughts of Florida in March are appropriate, after all. While full spring game...

Monday Poll: Where should Marco Gonzales start the 2015 season for the Cardinals?

When the 2014 season opened, Marco Gonzales was just 23 1/3 innings and 3 months into his professional baseball career. When the season ended, he had over 40 major league innings under his belt. His major league debut came just a little more than a year after being drafted in the first round by the Cardinals. His first three appearances were rough, 11 earned runs over 14 innings...

Cardinals Rumors: Payroll expected to increase significantly

The St. Louis Cardinals have built their roster around young homegrown talent for years. Currently they have plenty of young stars on the roster with players like Matt Adams, Matt Carpenter, Lance Lynn, and Michael Wacha. But as these players continue to succeed Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that salary is expected to grow significantly in the upcoming...

2014 STL Cardinals Season Ending Awards

It’s time to put a bow on 2014 for the St. Louis Cardinals. The ending of the season still sucks. The manager is still under fire. And another 1/2 month of Royals love is still to be played out. The first step in the healing process or something. Most Valuable Player: Lance Lynn There was a time during the 2014 season where the good ship Cardinal was moving past a heavy list...

St Louis Cardinals: how much is Matheny to blame?

The St. Louis Cardinals were knocked out of the postseason in game 5 of the NLCS following a bullpen implosion leading to a walkoff home run despite the team firing on all cylinders most of the night. Highly criticized is manager Mike Matheny’s decision to bring in starter Michael Wacha in the 9th inning despite Wacha having not pitched in a month. How much of this game was decided...

Will the Cardinals Add Their Own Don Zimmer?

With all the recent criticism of the managing approach of St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, as well as his hitting coach, John Mabry, in the area of the club’s ongoing offensive struggles, it seems odd that Matheny’s apparent right-hand man, Mike Aldrete, has remained above scrutiny. Perhaps it is because the bench coach is rarely seen on television other than to be...

Seth Maness’ girlfriend criticized Mike Matheny on his Twitter account

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny came under a firestorm of criticism for his managing during the Cardinals’ 5-4, ten inning loss in Game 3 of the NLCS to the Giants. One of the critics appeared to be Cardinals reliever Seth Maness, who was retweeting negative thoughts of Matheny after the game. Huh, well that’s something. Maness only threw six pitches in the ninth and...

Maness went 1-2-3 against the Giants in the bottom of the 9th and...Read More
