CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Despite a season-high losing streak, the St. Louis Cardinals still sit atop the major league standings largely thanks to an imposing starting staff. They've rarely had any trouble winning when Carlos Martinez takes the mound, which he'll do Saturday against a San Diego Padres team looking to capture its first four-game series in St. Louis in a decade. St. Louis (51-28) dropped its...

Cardinals: Tommy Pham gets a shot

It finally happened. The St. Louis Cardinals recalled outfielder Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis ahead of Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres, and I couldn’t be happier for the guy. Pham has been on fire since his return from the quadriceps strain that kept him out earlier in the season. The 27-year old has hit .338 with 5 homers and 21 RBI for the Memphis Redbirds, including...

Cardinals: Is bunting a game changer?

Ahh, the bunt. The play that never ceases to amaze me when executed under the right circumstances. Do the St. Louis Cardinals execute it correctly? Nowadays, it seems like the only time we see a bunt is when a speedster is at the plate trying to bunt his way onto the base paths. Or, most commonly, when the pitcher is batting with runners on and less than two outs. As I’ve mentioned...

Cardinals Prospect Carded at R-Rated Movie

If its 46% rating over at Rotten Tomatoes is any indication, “Ted 2” isn’t exactly knocking the critics dead. That said, audiences are still heading to the theater to see the sequel to the 2012 Seth MacFarlane flick. Thursday night, following a loss to the Oklahoma City Dodgers, Memphis Redbirds pitcher Marco Gonzales hit the multiplex and, well, this happened. Soooo…. I...

Remember when the narrative surrounding the saga of St. Louis Cardinals staffers hacking a Houston Astros database was “well, it must have been a low level member of the front office”?

Revisiting Old Cardinals: Jim Edmonds

James Patrick Edmonds. Jim Edmonds. Jimmy Baseball. Jimmy Ballgame. Hollywood. When writing a piece like this it’s always my intention to avoid using “I” or making the story personal, but when it comes to Edmonds I can’t help myself. He is, without question, my favorite Cardinal of all-time. Yes, more so than Ozzie or Willie or Herr or Albert or…you get it. Jimmy played...

St. Louis Cardinals: Too much rallying?

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the St. Louis Cardinals (49-24)  pulled out another win after trailing late in a game.
