Rosenthal Disabled

Whether conveniently, an issue with the medical staff, or somehow a recent development, Trevor Rosenthal has been placed on the DL and Dean Kiekhafer recalled.

Last week, Carlos Martinez was scheduled to take the mound Tuesday, but rain came and forced a cancellation, creating a doubleheader the next day.  Apparently that was such a good idea the Cardinals thought they'd do it again this week.  I guess it could have been worse.  I mean, if you are playing the God [...]

Williams Added

The Cardinals have brought up veteran pitcher Jerome Williams from Memphis.  Mike Mayers was sent down and Jordan Walden was moved to the 60-day DL.

We started this series earlier in the year but let it drop as the season got started.  However, this is about the time five years ago that things got interesting, so let's jump back in the time machine and take a look at what was going on as #11in11 really got started. Treading Water We [...]

Mayers-ed In Mediocrity

Major League Baseball players are a fortunate class.  Even the rookie minimum is more than many of us will make in years of work, perhaps even in our entire careers.  They have first-class accommodations.  They get plenty of attention and exposure, perhaps even respect.  I mean, even at my advanced age (an age that ticks [...]

Time To Catch Up

So I know I said that I'd try to do Heroes and Goats while I was gone on my trip to Ohio, but given the fact that I had such limited access and I wasn't able to do more than see the scores the day after, it seemed better to try to get home, get [...]

SOCOLOVICH OPTIONED TO MEMPHIS (AAA) ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 24, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals have purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Mike Mayers(pronounced MY-ers) from Triple-A Memphis to make his Major League debut tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers. To make room on the team’s 25-man roster, the Cardinals optioned right-handed pitcher Miguel [...]

A few days ago, a did a poll on twitter asking the following question:  Who would be the better long term asset for the Cards, Aledmys Diaz or Stephen Piscotty? Here are the results. Overwhelmingly the voters chose Piscotty. Currently both Diaz and Piscotty have the exact same WAR: 3.1. Diaz, of course was an [...]

A long, long while ago I used to run a contest on a couple of message boards called YNOT.  (Full disclosure, the Montreal Expos board on what was then and now doesn't exist did it first, but they let me borrow it.)  I did it on the blog a few times as well, though [...]

Now that we are three days into the four-day All-Star Break, I probably should recap the last four games of the first half, shouldn't I?  We'd hate for Heroes and Goats to go unnamed, of course. Thursday (5-1 win vs. Pittsburgh) Hero: Adam Wainwright.  There were a few strong offensive performances, but not much is [...]

First off, congratulations to Matt Carpenter who made the All-Star team and will be in San Diego despite being unable to play. I also want to congratulate Aledmys Diaz for making the All-Star roster as his replacement. I can't help but wondering though whether Diaz deserved to be on the roster from the beginning and [...]

CATCHER MICHAEL McKENRY PURCHASED FROM MEMPHIS (AAA) ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 7, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to today’s game that they have placed All-Star infielder Matt Carpenter (right oblique strain) on the 15-day disabled list and purchased the contract of catcher Michael McKenry from Memphis (AAA).   Carpenter, named on Tuesday [...]
