CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

In A Perfect World

In a perfect world, the 2014 season would be a gas for Cardinals fans. There would be no need for 64 different articles about the decline of Allen Craig ‘s swing(I have accounted for 6 of those). There wouldn’t be a need for a baseball swing forensic analyst to consider looking at Craig’s broken swing. The veteran [...]

Former MLB Pitcher Chris Carpenter Selling Palm Beach Home For $675K (Photos)

World Series-winning pitcher Chris Carpenter is selling his Palm Beach, Fla., home, and you might actually be able to afford it. The Exeter, N.H., native listed the four-bedroom, 4.5-bath home for $625,000 on Tuesday, and it’s a pretty nice place for the asking price. The home is located in the BallenIsles Country Club community, which is home to some of the most famous golf...

Prospecting for Second Basemen: A look at the top five second basemen in the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system

Twice a year, I like to look at the depth of each position in the Cardinals organization. What I like to do is to rank them based on which players have the best chance of having an impactful major league career. This is not about who is closest to the majors, we are looking for MLB impact players. In this case, we are looking for a player who could step into the starting role at...

Regardless, Pierzynski is a sound short-term investment for Cardinals

ST. LOUIS -- A.J. Pierzynski needed all of one game to show why the Cardinals wanted him. He can hit. Fresh off the plane from Cooperstown, where he was on hand for the induction of former teammate Frank Thomas, Pierzynski went 3 for 5 with an RBI in a 6-3 victory over the Cubs. No adjustment period needed, no shaking off the rust required. Not bad for a guy who hadn't played...

Poll: Which St. Louis Cardinals player would you hate to see traded the most?

I originally wanted to title this post, “Which Cards player is off-limits the most?” Problem with that is, many reasonable fans would realize that no player is off-limits. If the right deal was proposed, you would be willing to part with that one “untouchable” prospect. I also chose this question because the trade deadline is this week, and there is a great chance the Cardinals...

Cardinals Have To Get Better At Replay Challenges

Friends, I know it doesn’t feel significant, but it is. Mike Matheny and the Cardinals have to get better at replay challenges. Sunday’s 1-0 win was a brisk, tense game. With no margin for error, Wainwright pitched a gem and the game winning RBI came off Matt Holliday’s home run in the top of the 1st. Should it have been so close? Before Holliday’s at bat, Kolten Wong hit...

Kapler: Cardinals ‘should go after David Price’

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 A.J. Pierzynski before [...]
