CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

What to make of the A.J. Pierzynski signing

The Cardinals made a move to try to shore up their catching situation tonight by signing A.J. Pierzynski.  Per Ken Rosenthal, Pierzynski will join the Cardinals tomorrow in Chicago.  Should we be worried?Pierzynski has a reputation around the league as a clubhouse cancer.  A reputation that apparently goes back to at least 2004.  The Red Sox were undoubtedly aware of his reputation...

St. Louis Cardinals: Predicting the second half

The first half of Major League Baseball has come and gone and the St. Louis Cardinals are where I believed them to be.  Finishing second, one game back from the Milwaukee Brewers with a 52-44 record. As I predicted, the Cards finished the first half slightly above .500 while still in the hunt for a weakened National League Central Division. By far the Cardinals’ best player from...

What’s wrong with Allen Craig? Gabe Kapler dissects

Kelly looks to keep Cards from longest losing streak in almost a year

The St. Louis Cardinals are on the brink of their longest losing streak in almost a year. Historically, turning to Joe Kelly against the Chicago Cubs would improve their chances of avoiding such a fate.

Prospecting for Catchers: A look at the catching depth in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

Twice a year, I like to look at the depth of each position in the Cardinals organization. What I like to do is to rank them based on which players have the best chance of having an impactful major league career. This is not about who is closest to the majors, we are looking for MLB impact players. In this case, we are looking for the successor to Yadier Molina. Now, none of these...

St. Louis Cardinals need to stockpile wins before August

The St. Louis Cardinals have done an admirable job in the first three weeks of July by winning four of their five series to climb back toward the top of the National League Central Division, and now they have a chance to position themselves well for the final third of the season.

Will a Devalued Taveras Follow Rasmus’ Path Out of Town?

I don’t think there is any doubt that Oscar Taveras is the St. Louis Cardinals’ most celebrated position prospect since Colby Rasmus. I have to admit that I am holding a fear that would connect the two outfielders in another way. I wonder if Cardinals manager Mike Matheny’s curious disuse of Taveras could be the prelude of a repeat of one of what I consider to be the most...

Poll: Which Cardinals bullpen pitcher do you trust the most?

Oh boy, has the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen had its ups and downs this year. What seemed like a pretty strong core going into the season, has had to rely heavily on Pat Neshek and Sam Freeman for a good chunk of the season. The Cards are getting another important piece to the ‘pen back on Wednesday, Kevin Siegrist. This will put three lefties in the pen, as Nick Greenwood is...
