Cole Claybourn Well if this isn’t the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. The same Joe Kelly who we grew to know and love for his hilarious personality now looks like a sick puppy on a Sarah McLachlan infomercial after being traded to Boston. Even Allen Craig, following a double in his Red Sox debut the other [...]

Change is an inevitable part of life. No matter how tough a change we face, we as humans learn to adjust. For many Cardinal fans, Thursday brought about a significant change and somewhat of an end to an era. For many fans, learning to adjust may take some time. If I sound overly sentimental, it’s [...]

Two key losses for the St. Louis Cardinals in July opened the door for two specific moves to happen before the July 31 trade deadline. First was replacing catcher Yadier Molina, who will be sidelined until at least September with a sprained thumb. General Manager John Mozeliak filled that void by signing veteran free agent [...]

Allen Craig isn’t putting together the type of season that many Cardinals fans hoped for following last season. Nearly automatic with runners in scoring position last season, Craig was also one of the most consistent hitters in general for the Cardinals. We’ve seen nearly the polar opposite this season. Here’s a look at Craig’s 2013 [...]

Gabe Kapler has brought a new voice to the baseball scene with a fresh look at baseball through the use of sabermetrics. Not many color commentators use progressive baseball analytics to explain the game the way Kapler does during his Fox Sports 1 telecasts. He’s a numbers guy, not an emotions guy. Those are his [...]

I joined ESPN Evansville 105.3 on Tuesday to discuss the Cardinals. We hit on Adam Wainwright’s rough outing vs. the Rays, Yadier Molina’s injury, trade talk and more. Enjoy! Follow @HighSock_Sunday on Twitter.

Gabe Kapler can remember a young Dustin Pedroia, who in 2006 was just a small second baseman trying to make it in the Major Leagues. Pedroia tallied 98 plate appearances in his rookie season on his way to a .191 batting average with just two home runs and seven RBIs. He entered the 2007 season, [...]

It’s never a good thing when the manager and general manager of a baseball organization disagree on something. It’s a more compounded issue when they disagree about the usage and management of the organization’s top prospect, especially to the extent that manager Mike Matheny and General Manager John Mozeliak do about Oscar Taveras. Mozeliak spoke [...]

  July can be one of the most exciting months in the baseball calendar. It can also be one of the most stressful as a fan. It’s officially trade season, and whether your team truly needs to make a deal or not, there’s bound to be fans clamoring for a trade. As the Cardinals have struggled, [...]

St. Louis Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak took time to answer questions from bloggers about the organization’s player development system during a Q&A session at the 2014 Blogger Event at Busch Stadium on June 22, 2014.

The Cardinals briefly discussed trade talks with the Houston Astros about pitchers Erik Bedard and Bud Norris prior to the 2013 MLB Trade Deadline, according to leaked documents that reveal internal discussions among Astros front office members.
