LOUIS, MO., May 25, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have acquired outfielder Jose Martinez from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for cash considerations.  Martinez , who was playing for Omaha (AAA) this season, has been assigned to the Memphis [...]

I posted this idea in my Monday post here. Basically on one hand we have a veteran player who's been around forever that is starting to show signs of aging. Our Goliath. On the otherhand we have a minor league journeyman who got a good chance this year and has taken advantage of it. Our David. [...]

After 44 games, the Cardinals sit barely above break even, winning 23 and losing 21.  I thought I'd have to go a long way back in their history to find a similar start.  After all, we've been spoiled by so many good teams that almost .500 seems ridiculously pedestrian for this franchise.  So I looked [...]

The Matt Adams Paradox.

Good morning all. I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. Matt Adams has rebounded nicely this year after last years injury riddled debacle where he has a .240/.280/.377 slash line. This year he has a .280/.340/.461 slash line with 4 homers and 4 doubles in 97 Plate Appearances, or PA's. Those [...]

The Forgotten Infielder…

Morning all, been a while. Working on fixing that. Anyways, as I was trying to come up with an idea for today's post, I tried to think of something or somebody going under the radar due to being overshadowed or having a disappointing year. The answer came to me quickly: Kolten Wong. Due to the [...]

Wainwrighting The Ship

Two games with the Rockies and, unsurprisingly given this team, a mixed bag of results.  Before we get into the positive that was Adam Wainwright's start, we've got to look at Tuesday's outing. Tuesday (3-1 loss) Hero: Kolten Wong.  On a night where there was little offense to speak of, Wong provided the lion's share [...]

PLAY BALL Weekend, Strikeout Cancer Night and Molina Garden Gnome Highlight the Third Homestand of the Season  ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 17, 2016 – The Cardinals are back at Busch Stadium for a nine-game homestand, which kicks off with a three-game series with the Colorado Rockies (May 17-19), continues with a three-game series against the [...]

Perhaps it's not surprising that when this team went Hollywood, they got a bit of stage fright.  After a boffo performance up (down? I have really no clue on California geography) the road in Anaheim, the Cardinals went into Chavez Ravine for their last outing in front of Vin Scully and were lucky to salvage [...]

Three Days in Anaheim

It's not often that a sweep doesn't tell you much about a team, especially one with the flaws that this Cardinals team has.  However, they went in and pounded on a team that now has lost six in a row and sits at the bottom of the AL West, a division that isn't just covering [...]
