On Thursday December 8, 2016 Frank Cusumano tweeted out that Dexter Fowler was en route to St. Louis to take a physical. And like that, Cardinals Twitter started to get fun again. We’ve talked ad nauseam about what was going to happen in the outfield. Now, it’s time to start wonder “What’s next?” for the Cardinals. To assess that, we need to assess the team’s financial...

The St. Louis Cardinals added one player in Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft – outfielder Austin Wilson, a former draft target of the Cardinals as a high schooler in 2010 and a later second-round selection by Seattle in 2013. An impressive physical specimen at 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Wilson has been a prospect that some have drooled over long before St. Louis unsuccessfully wooed him...

The St. Louis Cardinals fell way short of expectations in 2016. Maybe it was the Chicago Cubs’ excellence from start to finish; maybe it was injuries to key players; maybe it was the lofty expectations from a 100-win 2015. Maybe it was a mixture of all of those factors. Going back to the topic of the Cubs though, it is clear that the Cardinals are likely not going to win a division...

The St. Louis Cardinals had a rough year in terms of pitching this past season. Adam Wainwright had the worst season of his career, Mike Leake was bad in the first year of his contract, Jaime Garcia struggled, and the bullpen had their issues as well. The lone bright spots in the rotation were Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes, the latter of which barely pitched. Both Martinez and Reyes...
As the St. Louis Cardinals look to shore up their outfield, a team from across the National League may be of some assistance to them. According to a report by Mark Saxon of ESPN on Monday, Miami Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna is “one name to keep an eye on” with the Cardinals in the market for a center fielder. Ozuna, 26, was an All-Star last season, hitting .266/.321/.425...
