I am well aware that the role of 2nd lefty — specifically Tyler Webb — is not the biggest issue facing the Cardinals. However, it is an area that is prime for an upgrade. As we move towards the meaty part of June, it’s time to start thinking about trade targets. With the new, hard [...]

Cards Arm up for Summer

Following a trend that took over baseball, the 2019 MLB Draft is in the books with the majority of teams stocking up on pitchers. The second half finished up yesterday with St. Louis taking a few surprise picks but leaning towards power arms from major college programs. That strategy has served the Cardinals well over [...]

LEFTY GÉNESIS CABRERA OPTIONED TO TRIPLE-A ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 5, 2019 –The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game, that they have recalled rookie right-handed pitcher Ryan Helsley from Memphis (AAA) and optioned rookie left-handed pitcher Génesis Cabrera to the triple-A Redbirds. Helsley, 24, will be making his third stint with the Cardinals, after having [...]

Breaking down Rounds 11-20

If a sign was needed of how stacked the Cardinals are with infielders, just remember the first half of the 2019 Draft. A few high school players were snagged after zero on day two but exactly no infielders were taken by St. Louis. It was more of the same for the Birds on the Bat, [...]

Timing Is Everything

I should have written yesterday. With a four game winning streak to recap, it would have been nice to have had nothing but good things (besides the obvious tabbing of the different Goats) to say about the Cardinals.  Unfortunately, I let the opportunity slide by and now it’s just mostly good, ending on the downbeat.  [...]

Yesterday, my family and I said goodbye to a dear friend.  We first met Andy Strope at Drillers Stadium in Tulsa, OK.  At the time, the hometown Drillers were an affiliate of the Colorado Rockies but the fanbase was a true baseball melting pot.  The Cardinals, Rangers, and Rockies have each been associated with the [...]

Stocking the Farm Part 3

For many years the best part about covering the MLB Draft has always been the stories. Say what you want about the internet and technology in general, but it is great when it works. The 2019 edition is no different when researching picks made by the Cardinals, and plenty of good narratives will come to [...]

Stocking the Farm Part 2

Continuing the same narrative, St. Louis added two more college players in rounds five and six. The Cardinals added to their pitching depth first, selecting LHP Connor Thomas with the 155th pick. He was not listed in MLB’s top 200 although the Georgia Tech hurler has a strong feel for his craft. Thomas has a [...]

Stocking the Farm Part 1

Let the fun day of the MLB Draft begin! With the Cardinals needing to fill multiple short season rosters, the third and fourth picks were both college pitchers primed to help sooner rather than later. Paired with the first round pick, it is shaping up to be an interesting summer under the Arch. St. Louis [...]

Mike Shildt’s decision to leave Adam Wainwright in for the seventh, let alone the eighth, against the Cubs on Sunday at Busch Stadium was one of the more questionable decisions of his tenure. It rightfully commanded most of the attention post game. After all, a 37-year-old starter throwing 126 pitches against one of the better [...]
