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 [...]

Money talks in the game of baseball, and that may have played a part in how the 2nd Round turned out for the Cardinals. With many big names previously connected to St. Louis at No. 19 still available, it turned out that a historic pro team will hopefully win out over a college powerhouse. Trejyn [...]

As the MLB Network went to commercial just before the Cardinals made their pick, a picture of three pitchers flashed on the screen. It seemed odd at the time that one player happened to be missing from that list who also went 19th just a year ago after dropping in St. Louis’ lap. Was it [...]

Nothing like a weather delay to re-introduce myself to the good people following the Conclave! It has been entirely too long but good news is my favorite time of the year happens to be right around the corner. Not only will the short season clubs have a ton of talent to talk about, but this [...]

The Cardinals enter the offseason with a full 40-man roster. While the deadline to finalize the 40-man is still a month away, it’s the first important date on the offseason calendar, and 40-man decisions will have implications throughout the offseason. The Cardinals ended the season with a full 40-man roster, but four players from the [...]

Before play started on Monday evening, Fangraphs gave the Cardinals nearly a four-in-five chance of making the playoffs as one of the Wild Card teams. It made sense to start thinking about who the Cardinals should start in the one-game playoff, even if making it to the Wild Card game wasn’t a sure thing. Then [...]
