I don't care how long this post gets, we are finishing up looking at all of John Mozeliak's trades in this post.  Last time we linked to all the former posts, so if you've missed any you can find them there.  Some of the trades in this post may be hard to grade, as they [...]

Every fanbase has their underbelly, as it were.  Those fans that root for the same team as you do, but do so in crude, entitled, arrogant, jerky fashion.  Again, there is that segment in every fanbase, I believe.  It's just that the Cardinals segment tends to draw a bit more attention from the world at [...]

The Torture Of Potential

As we all know, Alex Reyes underwent an MRI today, and the worst happened: a UCL tear and Tommy John surgery resulting in a lost season and possibly decreased velocity when he comes back, meaning there is a chance, when he finally returns, that we'll never see the dynamo that we saw at the end of [...]

Reyes Diagnosis Confirmed

Per John Mozeliak's press conference this morning, Alex Reyes will have Tommy John surgery as feared.  Dr. George Paletta will do the surgery there in Jupiter.  Sad but expected.

We had waited for four months.  With no October baseball last year, the wait for pitchers and catchers was longer than ever and anticipation had that much longer to build up.  With everyone reporting yesterday, the excitement had reached a high and we exulted that baseball was back. That didn't last an hour. Cardinal fans [...]

We made it. It's been a long, cold winter since we saw the Cardinals last on the field.  (Cold metaphorically, at least.  Around here, the temps have actually been unseasonably warm, especially of late.)  No October baseball.  The Cubs winning the World Series.  The fairly cool hot stove time (though not ice cold, of course, [...]

It's hard to believe that spring training is really just over a week away.  To get into that mindset, I called up Nate and Ben, hosts of Talking About Birds, to make some sense of the big Cardinal news of late as well as what to look for as the players start to show up [...]

We've come to the end of our review of John Mozeliak's trades since he took over as general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals in October 2007.  In this post, we'll tackle the last three years and we'll leave an overall look for one more final post.  (Edit: Ha ha, no we won't.  This post [...]

Prospect Watch: Harrison Bader

I enjoyed talking about our catching prospect Carson Kelly, so I thought I'd look at another prospect, Harrison Bader. Bader made it to AAA last year, where he struggled. That was only in 161 AB's though, and he had hit in all previous levels. Plus, remember, we just drafted him in 2015, as a 3rd [...]
