Wacha rebound among questions for Cardinals

ST. LOUIS (AP) The Cardinals hope Michael Wacha is ready to stand alongside ace Adam Wainwright at the top of their rotation. Wacha was the NL Championship Series MVP as a rookie but just 5-6 with a 3.20 ERA in 19 starts last year. He was sidelined for most of the season's second half by a stress reaction in his shoulder, and was rusty in October before giving up Travis Ishikawa...

St Louis Cardinals: Jason Heyward key to offense

With the Cardinals trailing 1-0 in the 1st inning following a bomb off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton, Jason Heyward followed with a bomb of his own to right field, tying the game up. It was Heyward’s first home run in a Cardinals uniform and a sight the Cardinals hope to get used to in the future. It was not enough to get his team the win, as Adam Wainwright struggled a bit, but...

Predicting the opening day roster of the Memphis Redbirds

In part two of my roster prediction series, I will look at the 2015 Memphis Redbirds Opening Day roster. If you missed my St. Louis Cardinals prediction you can view it HERE. As you can see I decided to add Jaime Garcia to the starting rotation, Carlos Martinez to the bullpen, Randal Grichuk and Pete Kozma to the bench. I feel pretty strongly about the hitters there, not so sure...

Former Cardinals outfielder Curt Ford was allegedly the victim of a race-related attack in St. Louis earlier this week. On Thursday, Ford told Christine Byers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he is considering moving away from the St. Louis area after a man yelled racial slurs at him and punched him at a gas...Read More

Opening Day Starters: N.L Central

  Opening Day Starters: N.L Central Starting pitchers pride themselves on being named the Opening Day starter for their ball club. The assignment is motivating as you’re often pegged as the guy who will lead your starting staff. The Opening Day assignment is quite overblown by fans, especially when their team doesn’t have a true #1 or obvious choice for the start. I begin...

St Louis Cardinals: Hot/Cold Spring

The St. Louis Cardinals are off to a 9-7 start in Spring Training for 2015, but what matters more than records in the baseball world in March are individual performances. Through 16 spring games, the Cardinals have many players both struggling and on hot streaks as they prepare for opening day in 2 weeks. Let’s take a look at who’s hot and who’s not: Hot Pete Kozma: Out of...

Opening Day Preview: St Louis Cardinals

The 2015 St. Louis Cardinals are looking beautiful so far this spring training.

Though the games don’t currently matter, their current record as of March 23, 2015 is 9 and 7. Mike Matheny will be returning for his 4th year at the...

St. Louis Cardinals: Carlos Martinez Needs To Start

What are the Cardinals going to do with Carlos Martinez this season? It’s not an easy answer and one that attracts a wide array of opinions. With Jaime Garcia proving his worth for the 5th spot in the rotation and carrying a 9 million dollar contract to go with it, the thought of Carlos Martinez drifting back into middle relief or setup duty makes me angry. Whether it’s here...

2015 St. Louis Cardinals Team Preview

If the question is posed, “Who has been the most consistent team in the National League over the past five seasons?” the answer may seem obvious. The San Francisco Giants have won three World Series Championships during that timeframe and are considered the most dominant team. However, the Giants missed the postseason in 2011 and finished 10 games under .500 in 2013. The St....

Canadian Talents Wick And Collymore Perfect Their Craft In Cardinals System

JUPITER – Do you know how tough it is to secure a playoff spot in any spot? Not easy. Teams go years and years without seeing post-season play. Just ask the Blue Jays, who haven’t seen playoff action since they won their second consecutive World Series in 1993. In contrast, look at what the St. Louis Cardinals have done in recent years, especially under the guidance of Mike...

The ‘Trade Jaime Garcia’ Bandwagon Has Left The Barn

As we outlined yesterday, the Cardinals starting rotation options are more bountiful than anticipated. With Marco Gonzales and Carlos Martinez cost-controlled for the near future and Jaime Garcia sticking the Cardinals with a 9.25M tab for services rendered in 2015, I assumed that Garcia would be called to the trading block sooner than later. This AM on ‘The Morning After’, it...

Cardinals Starting Rotation Race Is Getting Good

The more the Cardinals starting rotation comes into shape, the more the intrigue ratchets up. Better get your popcorn ready. Adam Wainwright will make his first spring training start on Saturday. So the staff ace seems to be progressing to the point where he’ll miss only a start or two at the beginning of the season. Hell, he might be good to go to April 5th. Point being, he...

2015 season preview: St. Louis Cardinals

Lack of middle relief and deer-in-the-headlights managing by Mike Matheny prevented the Cardinals from advancing to the World Series. But once again, St. Louis was one of the top clubs in the National League and will stay on that pedestal this year. General manager John Mozeliak made one of the biggest deals of the offseason, acquiring Jason Heyward (and an excellent reliever in...

The club had stressed that it was not interested in joining the big name free agent market to round out its staff...
