CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Anna the Cardinals New Castro?

For each of the last two winters, the St. Louis Cardinals bestowed a 40-man roster spot on a free agent signee that led me to scratch my head as to why.

Coming off a decent 2013 season at the Triple-A level for the Los Angeles Dodgers and a strong winter ball campaign in his native Dominican Republic...

Free Agency: Justin Masterson

Justin Masterson, 29, looks for a place to call home this offseason. The twenty-nine year-old struggled tremendously last season putting up a 5.51 ERA with the Cleveland Indians and a 7.04 ERA with the St. Louis Cardinals. The right-handed pitcher needs to reintroduce his value as a pitcher. For this to be accomplished, he must sign a cheap deal. No team will pursue Masterson for...

St Louis Cardinals rumors: Jon Lester edition

Soon after the St Louis Cardinals dealt Shelby Miller to the Braves for Jason Heyward, the team was linked to free agent ace Jon Lester.

For this week’s poll question, I want you to pull out your crystal ball and make a prediction. For the second straight week, the poll question centers around right field.

That leads us to two main possibilities...

I wanted to take some time to discuss what the St. Louis Cardinals pipeline looks like right now. The average fan may be wondering if there is a bat that we can look forward to in the coming years? Are we as deep in pitching as every one says we are? My answer to both of those questions is yes. The way in which I will mention these prospects will be in no particular order. By prospect...
