As detailed here in an article by Derrick Goold, Mike Matheny did something cool. I admit, I'm not Matheny's biggest fan, and have been very critical in the past, especially the preference he seems to have of playing veterans or "his guys" over rookies or trade acquisitions. I'll probably be critical of him in the [...]

Bueno Waino News

Well, that was happily anticlimatic. The tests and examination of ace Adam Wainwright showed that he just had an abdominal strain and would be fine with a few days of rest.  Given that the Cards were already planning to lighten his workload in the spring anyway, this basically plays right into their hands.  I know [...]

A transition period in the Minors has to be expected as prospects graduate, and the Cardinals find most of their question marks just down the I-44 from St. Louis. Our last February middle of the week post centers on Springfield and all the new faces that are expected to contribute. Headlining that group will be [...]

You know, there are a lot of ways that you would like spring training to start.  A good speech by Mike Matheny (which is on tap for today, I think).  Lots of "best shape of my life" stories.  Perhaps a goofy photo or two of players in red. Way, way, WAY down the list is [...]
