CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Elite Cards bullpen has set high standard for stretch run, postseason

How tough has the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen been this season? Consider this: Relievers Mitch Harris and Sam Tuivailala both were recently optioned to Triple-A Memphis (Tuivailala went Tuesday) even though neither of them allowed a run in their last 12 collective appearances, eight by Tuivailala, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. That's some serious relief work, the kind...

Is Adam Lind worth the squeeze for the Cardinals?

The talk of the town around the St. Louis Cardinals is first base and the name that keeps popping up is Milwaukee Brewers slugger Adam Lind. The 32 year old is having quite the season over in Milwaukee, with 16 home runs, 58 RBI and an OPS of .865 to go with 2.7 wins above replacement. Lind has an option of 8 million for 2016 as well, so he isn’t a rental. He’s the cream of the...

No Way Cardinals Are Riding & Dying With This Current Offense

So you’re Jaime Garcia. You’re back after nursing a groin pull back to health for over a month. And while your teammates weren’t doing much offensively during your 7 previous starts in 2015 you figured that some time away would give the Cardinals management (and players) opportunity to sort things out. Nah, bruh. For the 4th (!) time in 8 starts this season, the Cardinals provided...

J-Hey, Tsunami, and Wacha represent Cardinals

On Tuesday, MLB.com announced their list of the top twenty-five Major League players who are twenty-five or younger.

One Wong swing, four runs, Lynn does rest in Cardinals' 4-1 win over Reds

Why are Tony Cruz and Pete Kozma still on the Cardinals?

Excuse me while I complain about the team with the best record in baseball(and fans for that matter, according to popular opinion and Deadspin). The St. Louis Cardinals have won a lot of games(63 to be exact) and when a writer picks at that shiny emblem of greatness, he can be scolded. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago via KSDK, John Mozeliak’s roster management is troubling at...

Report: Brewers, Cardinals talking Adam Lind?

The St. Louis Cardinals may need some help at first base. Since Matt Adams went down for the year with a quad injury at the end of May, they’ve mainly played Mark Reynolds at first, and watched the strikeout machine do his thing by hitting .229/.312/.391 with nine homers and 89 strikeouts in 86 games. But help could be coming from within the NL Central from the team that deployed...

Lance Lynn has Mastered the Multi-sided Fastball

A lot of player interviews are a waste of time. This one isn’t. This is Lance Lynn, being interviewed in early June, after shutting down the Brewers: Lynn talks a lot about the fastball, which is appropriate, because Lynn threw 119 pitches in the game, and if his words are to be believed, exactly one […]

Why No St. Louis Cardinals Trades?

The perceived need for a trade to ease the ongoing offensive challenges for the St. Louis Cardinals was accentuated by an unlikely source over the weekend – a pair of extra-inning bullpen failures in which Pittsburgh prevailed both times. In the process, the red-hot Bucs closed the National League Central Division race to 2 ½ games. Some seem to have lost sight of the fact that...
