CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cardinals: Sam Tuivailala gives bullpen a high octane wild card

The St. Louis Cardinals have made some sexy moves this offseason, most notably the acquisition of Jason Heyward (of course, a position player).  But his former teammate Jordan Walden came over in the trade to solidify the back-end of the bullpen as well, and it is a move that should not be overlooked. Speaking of being overlooked, nor should another very promising prospect that...

The St. Louis Cardinals All-Organization Team: The Bench

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be selecting the Cardinals organizational All-Star team. The team will be structured like a 25-man roster. For each position, I will isolate the player who made the most starts for each team at that position and will select the one winner. For this post, I will be constructing the bench to our All-Organization Team. Our bench will consist of...

St. Louis Cardinals Baby Birds: A look at 3 hitters looking for a bounce back season

A new season provides a fresh start for players who may have struggled the season before. While the previous season’s numbers will always be on the baseball card, the new season starts fresh with zeros across the board. I have identified five players who would probably tell you their 2014 season was not what they would have hoped. Now, I am not calling these players busts or saying...

UCB January Project: Watch Any Cardinals Game Ever

The latest UCB project is this: If you could time warp to any Cards game and watch it, which would you choose? There are many obvious options, like game six of the 2011 series. But I wanted something different. I ruled out the following things: Playoff games. Chances are quite a few people will choose [...]

Xavier Scruggs Offers Internal Solution to Power Outage for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have been successful by almost any standard. The team has consistently found itself in the postseason. They have managed to develop talent at most key positions on the field. They have often been the blueprint by which other teams hope to do business. However, one thing has been noticeably absent. The Cardinals have seemingly turned away from the long ball...

St. Louis Cardinals lineup considerations: Jason Heyward

For St. Louis Cardinals fans waiting on the team to strike a Max Scherzer mega deal, disappointment came earlier in the week when the St. Louis native signed a monster $210 million contract with the Washington Nationals. Though the Cardinals front office will certainly continue to keep tabs on the pitching market, John Mozeliak’s tone when he spoke about pitching rumors at the...

St Louis Cardinals: will the offense improve?

The Cardinals offense saw a meteoric drop in 2014 after a record-setting 2013 numbers failed to carry over. The two main factors for this: Carlos Beltran’s departure and the lack of any production from Allen Craig whatsoever. This offseason saw no major departures and several upgrades. Does it all add up to a return to being an elite offense in 2015?   No need to cover the losses...

Seeking power, Cardinals won't mind strikeouts

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Cardinals are prepared to live with the swings and misses, knowing that when Mark Reynolds connects the ball really travels. They have lacked a power bat off the bench, or power anywhere for that matter, and Reynolds also could platoon with Matt Adams at first base. Manager Mike Matheny promises he won't have batting coach John Mabry tinker too much...

Trevor Rosenthal Seems to Have Embraced Closer Role for St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have been blessed with the gift of pitching over the last few seasons. So much so that TrevorRosenthal, once viewed as having a future in the starting rotation, has seemingly settled in to his role as the team’s closer. He pitched well there at times last season, but he still has a plan to improve in 2015. The Cardinals have wrapped up their annual fan...

Cardinals Set to Honor Fallen Teammate

Both the NBA and NFL have rules in place and players can be subjected to fines should they decide willy-nilly to change their uniform number. Now, I’m not sure if such a penalty is in place in Major League Baseball, but I’m pretty sure Carlos Martinez would pay it. You see, the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher recently announced he would be switching from number 44 to 18 to honor...

Cardinals' Wacha is not concerned about shoulder

  After undergoing yet another MRI exam on top of countless X-rays and CT scans, Michael Wacha joked that if there were many more medical tests in his immediate future his body might start to glow. The right-hander, a top-of-the-rotation talent when healthy, is the St. Louis Cardinals' biggest offseason question mark on the pitching staff because of unknowns that come with an unusual...

Mozeliak dispels rumors -- sort of -- that Cards are shopping for ace

ST. LOUIS -- Surely you've heard the talk about the Cardinals pursuing a big-name starter, right? Well, apparently, talk is all it is. At least if you believe general manager John Mozeliak. "I don't feel we need to do that," he said at a presser during the Cardinals Winter Warm-Up on Saturday. After meeting with the media, Mozeliak took the main stage for an hour-long Q&A with...

St Louis Cardinals: how will Adams/Reynolds duo perform?

The Cardinals did not sign free agent right-handed slugger Mark Reynolds to be a platoon partner for lefty Matt Adams. Let’s make that clear. The job is Adams’ unless he shows some significant regression this season. However, there were plenty of reasons that a bat like the one Reynolds possesses was needed on a team that was so power-starved last season. While Reynolds may not...

Player Profile #127: Matt Carpenter | 3B | STL

In 2013 Matt Carpenter scored 126 runs batting leadoff for St. Louis. The 2013 edition of the Cardinals were historically great at situational hitting, batting .330 as a team with RISP. The next closest team was Detroit at .282. It was those consistent, timely hits that propelled Carpenter over 120 runs on the year, and everyone expected regression. In fact, Carpenter became the...

Some people LOVE MiLB. If I lived in a city like Memphis or Nashville or Louisville where MiLB was going to have to be my live baseball fix, I’d probably love MiLB.
