WATCH: Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright hits an upper-deck blast

One cool thing about the National League if you’re a pitcher, is that you get the opportunity to bat and try to make up for runs you allowed on the mound (Note: I still think we should just have the DH in the NL, but that’s a topic for another day). St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright had allowed three earned runs on Monday night, and came to bat with his team trailing...

St. Louis Cardinals: April Report Card

One month into the 162-game grind that is the MLB season is hardly a long enough amount of time to make judgements about a team or a player for the rest of the year. However, a month of play does give fans a good idea of certain trends. For the St. Louis Cardinals, it is tough to pick things out, while some developing trends are certainly easier to spot. For example, Aledmys Diaz...

When you’re wrong. You’re wrong.

Mike Matheny’s endless lineup combinations not helping Cardinals

For all the weird stories involving Cardinals players (Jeremy Hazelbaker, Aledmys Diaz) early this season, perhaps the weirdest thing of all about the 2016 Cardinals is that manager Mike Matheny can’t stick to a lineup to save his life. The manager, perhaps best known for stubbornly sticking to a game plan well after it’s obvious the plan’s not working, is doing the exact...

Minor League Spotlight: Early Returns on Bader and Dejong

Checking in on two of the Cardinals' more intriguing hitting prospects. In last year's Rule IV draft (i.e. the amateur draft, first-year player draft, or just The Draft, whatever you prefer to call it), the Cardinals seemingly made it a priority to pick up some bats. It was a slightly odd approach to a very weak draft, which seemed especially thin on hitting, but looking at the...

Get used to the Cardinals with home run power

a refreshing change for the offense As I write this before Friday's game, the Cardinals sit in second place in the Majors with 33 home runs, tied with the Rockies and surpassed only by the Diamondbacks, two teams that play in very home run friendly parks. How big of a deal is this power output? Looking at it on a per PA basis, the 2016 team has hit dingers at a faster rate than any...

The Cardinals Seem To Be Getting Into Moral Victories

The adjustment from hunted to hunter is going to be harder than I anticipated. On Friday night, the Cardinals lost the opener of a three-game set against the Nationals 5 to 4. Mike Leake, the BIG off-season acquisition for the Birds took the L (0-3) and gave up all five runs. The Nation is growing restless. And they went to Twitter to tell him about it: Is it Mike Leake? Or Mike...

St. Louis Cardinals: Meet Aledmys Diaz

Say hello to Aledmys Diaz, the next great player out of the farm system of the St. Louis Cardinals. Through 19 games, Diaz batted a scorching and league-leading .468, which would rank as the second-highest all-time in the month of April if he keeps it up. The shortstop stumbled a bit last night in a 3-0 loss against the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 0-3. Now, in 20 games, he is only...

Who will carry the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense?

Through the first 19 games of his MLB career, St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker (#41) has been a pleasant surprise.  Although, pleasant doesn’t quite do the justice that Hazelbaker’s early statistics seem to deserve.  The 28 year old rookie is batting .308 with five homeruns and 13 RBIs. What has not been impressive for Hazelbaker, however, is his patience...

St. Louis Cardinals: Who Will Step Up to Carry the Offense?

The St. Louis Cardinals have been off to a decent, but rather lackluster start to the 2016 season. The Redbirds carry the burden of being one of those franchises that has sky high expectations year in and year out.  While an 8-7 start is not bad by any means, The Cardinals have the talent to be performing at a much higher level. The woes with the pitching staff, mainly the starting...
