Cardinals call up Lyons to bolster bullpen, demote Garcia

The Cardinals reached to Triple-A Memphis to bolster their bullpen Monday morning, calling up left-hander Tyler Lyons and sending down infielder Greg Garcia. While the move will leave the bench short, the club must consider the need for a fresh arm greater than that for a pinch-hitter and backup infielder. Garcia struck out in his only two at-bats since he was called up last week...

Cardinals Increased Run Scoring Translates to Wins

As St. Louis Cardinals fans have seen all season long, the 2014 club has featured solid pitching along with an under-performing offense that remains last in the National League in run scoring. Despite that imbalance, the Cardinals are 12 games over .500 and just a half-game out of first place heading into Sunday’s action. That pitching-hitting imbalance has shifted somewhat over...

Cardinals get much needed win in 12-inning marathon, move to a half game back in NL Central

After losing a 4-1 lead Friday night against the NL East cellar Phillies with their ace Adam Wainwright on the hill, the Cardinals would turn the page and look to avoid a series loss Saturday night in Philadelphia.

Taking another look at Daniel Descalso

Daniel Descalso has been busy doing what he does best: Frustrating lots of St. Louis Cardinals fans. This time around, he’s back to his old tricks, namely getting clutch hits late in important games that ultimately set the team up to win games. What a jerk. I’ve been a fairly vocal critic of his, but with big [...]

Jon Jay Is Carrying The Cardinals On His Back

Jon Jay, man. Dude was left for dead on the Cardinals roster this spring. With the addition of Peter Bourjos and the ascendance of Oscar Taveras – there just wasn’t going to be much PT for our friend. As they push down the homestretch, the Cardinals have moved to 12 games over .500 and nights like last night are a big reason for this mini-surge. 3-4. 2 runs. 1 RBI. And a stint...

The best gift ever exchanged for a jersey number?

When John Lackey was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the St. Louis Cardinals at the deadline, he was confronted with a conundrum, a relatively minor one in the grand scheme of things, but a conundrum nevertheless.

WATCH: Bob Costas asks for second pitch after missing badly

Bob Costas is one of the best sports announcers of this generation, but his pitching skills could use some work. He was invited to throw out the first pitch before Tuesday's Reds-Cardinals game, and that's exactly what he did. But he missed so badly that he asked for and was given a second try. In fact, his initial attempt sailed so far left it almost hit a cameraman...
