Cardinals pretty pleased with play in first series after All-Star break

In addition to the last-inning excitement, the game featured a three-run rally by the Cardinals against the...

Cardinals are taking a hard look at David Price

Usually when it comes to trade rumors, you can discount much of what is being thrown around as just that, rumors.  However, when more than one person is hinting at someone, chances are that it is true.  Like they say "where there's smoke, there's fire".That appears to be the case when it comes to the Cardinals and Tampa Bay's David Price.  According to Joe...

Draw a Bulls Eye on Cardinals Hitters

During our data give and take analyzing the first half of the St. Louis Cardinals’ 2014 season, Tom Orf made an aside. The researcher noted the unusually high number of hit by pitches Cardinals hitters have absorbed this season. Never before (at least since 1914) have Cardinals hitters taken first base 50 times after being plunked prior to the break as is the case this year. To...

Will the Cardinals make a big splash this trade season?

With the All Star Break out of the way (finally) and meaningful games being played again, many will be turning their focus to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. The last couple years have seen little trade activity for the Cardinals.  Last year, the Cards acquired John Axford, but not until after the trade deadline.  Before that, in 2012, the team acquired Edward Mujica...

Michael Wacha’s return more crucial for St. Louis Cardinals than Yadier Molina

Yadier Molina might have suffered the most serious injury of the 2014 season for the St. Louis Cardinals, but one of the injuries to their pitchers might be the most significant in their attempt at another National League Central Division title.
