Riding The Pine

The Cardinals pitching hasn’t been quite as strong as it was last year, and there are more than a few reasons why. One thing I noticed was the middle innings were most troublesome for the team. I started by looking at the ERA per inning: The middle innings are pretty hard for the team, which [...]

The system goes 4-1 on the day, with the big league club completing a sweep of the Braves. That was a big series after being swept by the Pirates. Outside of Memphis, it was wins across the system. Cardinals 12, Braves 7 Hitter Pos AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB/ATT BB Avg Aledmys [...]

Nothing from the big league club, as they try to shake off their 0-3 start. The minor leagues started yesterday, and the system went 2-2. There were some strong pitching performances at the bottom 3 levels. Colorado Springs 4, Memphis 3 Hitter Pos AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB/ATT BB Avg Anthony Garcia [...]

Now that we are 2 days into the season, let’s look at some former Cardinals and see where they are. First are a list of all former Cardinals and farmhands that made MLB rosters. Updated 4/06/2016: Sam Freeman was traded from the Rangers to the Brewers. Arizona: Shelby Miller, RHP; David Peralta, OF. Boston: Joe [...]

One thing that many baseball fans don’t ever think about is the payroll; sure, you’ll hear people talk about how the Yankees throw money at star players, or how the A’s don’t spend money, but you don’t always see the day to day impacts of signings. Below is the Cardinals Salary Matrix, which includes all [...]

The big league club got roughed up by the National yesterday; Adam Wainwright and Seth Maness gave up 7 of the Nationals’ 8 runs in the first 5 innings. The rest of the system faced the Marlins’ system and took 2 out of the 5 games. Like the previous reports, I’ll list each team first [...]

The big league club took care of the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon 4-1; Trevor Rosenthal took the win with Jonathan Broxton getting the save. The minor league squads had a camp day, with Memphis facing Springfield and Palm Beach taking on Peoria. Like the last report, I’ll list each team first with their opponents score [...]

Starting today, there should be almost daily coverage of the minor leaguers in Cardinals camp. In addition to those on the Major League roster, the minor leaguers have started playing games. I’ll list each team first with their opponents score second; the stats come from the Cardinals, so they don’t keep totals for players, like [...]

Baseball America has a wonderful Prospect Report each day that can be emailed directly to you; it lists what prospects did the previous days. My only issue is it isn’t team specific; you get prospects from every team. Here is what the Cardinal kids did on Sunday: Nationals 5, Cardinals 2 HitterPosABRH2B3BHRRBISB/ATTBBAvg Aledmys DiazSS40000000/00.200 Greg [...]

News broke last week that Yadier Molina had another thumb surgery after the previous surgery “didn’t take” (whatever that means); he’ll miss most of spring training due to it. My concern over the last 2 years was the heavy work load that Molina employed for the early part of his career; I believed his knees [...]

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cardinals are out of the Jason Heywards sweepstakes. Jon Heyman believes the Nationals have offered around $200M, but are not optimistic. It would look like the Cubs may have a new outfielder; we don’t know financial terms yet but it’s official. This decision will allow the Cardinals to move forward [...]

At the Winter Meetings, Johnny Cueto‘s agent, Bryce Dixon, acknowledged that his client would be open to going to the Cardinals. Dixon told MLB Trade Rumors: “He’s expressed regret over it in the past. He loves pitching in the NL Central. He’s the best pitcher of our era in the NL Central. It would be [...]
