CARDINALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cards head home after productive road trip

The Cardinals were already perturbed by the late start time scheduled for their getaway day in Arizona, with manager Mike Matheny going as far as calling it "ridiculous." His club's travel plans were unexpectedly aided by the fact that it played its quickest game of the season, though even that did little to placate any frustration.

Pitchers Can’t Seem to Get the (A)Led(mys Diaz) Out

Note: the editor of this post played no part in the composition of its despicable title. All grievances should be directed to the author, Craig Edwards. Baseball is full of April surprises. Players who come seemingly out of nowhere. Albert Pujols was one such player back in 2001. So was Chris Shelton back in 2005, Devon Travis last year, and Trevor Story already this season. As Trevor...

Aledmys Diaz Is Officially MLB’s Top Current Hitter

We knew that Aledmys Diaz was on fire at the plate in 2016. But until last night’s 11-4 win over Arizona, the Cardinals shortstop did not have enough at-bats to qualify as a league leader. He does now. And his .468 (FOUR SIXTY EIGHT) average is the top mark in all of baseball. Diaz could go 1 for his next 38 and still be batting over .300! Listen – if we’re all being honest...

Cards seeing productive Moss early in season

The Cardinals took a calculated gamble this past offseason that Brandon Moss would be better than his first impression when they signed the first baseman/outfielder to an $8.25 million contract. That made Moss the seventh-highest-paid player on the club, a distinction he's thus far backed with production.

Don’t Sleep on Stephen Piscotty

There was much debate in the preseason regarding Matt Carpenter repeating his power surge and the tantalizing mix of speed and power in Randal Grichuk. But steady Stephen Piscotty continues to fly below the radar in fantasy and in baseball as a productive member of the Cardinals.  It is easy to overlook Stephen Piscotty, as St. Louis is presently first in baseball in home runs and...

St. Louis Cardinals and The Home Run: A love story blooms

St. Louis Cardinals met power this spring and the two hit it off. A love story has bloomed. Quite honestly, I have no idea who these Cardinals are. They’ve cranked 30 home runs in the month of April and there’s still four days left to play. They hit 14 all of March 31 through April in 2015. Let’s take a look at what is happening here as coffee cup #1 goes down the tubes. USA...

Who will carry the St. Louis Cardinals’ offense?

Through the first 19 games of his MLB career, St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker (#41) has been a pleasant surprise.  Although, pleasant doesn’t quite do the justice that Hazelbaker’s early statistics seem to deserve.  The 28 year old rookie is batting .308 with five homeruns and 13 RBIs. What has not been impressive for Hazelbaker, however, is his patience...

St. Louis Cardinals: Who Will Step Up to Carry the Offense?

The St. Louis Cardinals have been off to a decent, but rather lackluster start to the 2016 season. The Redbirds carry the burden of being one of those franchises that has sky high expectations year in and year out.  While an 8-7 start is not bad by any means, The Cardinals have the talent to be performing at a much higher level. The woes with the pitching staff, mainly the starting...

Joe Maddon talks Busch Stadium ban on his ‘Try Not To Suck’ shirts

The shirts feature the above-mentioned motto along with a pair of glasses resembling Maddon’s trademark frames. Maddon talking about...

St. Louis Cardinals: time for starting rotation to step up

After the first 13 games of the 2016 season, the St. Louis Cardinals sit at 7-6.  The offense has been there early on for the Cards, but the pitching has been inconsistent at times. Some players have been carrying the load, especially bullpen anchor Kevin Siegrist (0.00 ERA in 7 appearances) and starting pitcher Jaime Garcia (2.70 ERA, 26 Ks in 20 IP).   Most of the other starting...

Jaime Garcia Just Pitched the Game of His Life

Jaime Garcia has had Tommy John surgery, rotator-cuff surgery, and thoracic-outlet surgery. Despite those setbacks — or perhaps to spite them — yesterday Garcia pitched the game of his life, throwing harder than he ever has during his career. Garcia’s afternoon was nearly perfect: a wild pitch on a strikeout, a walk that was erased by a double play, and one hard-hit single...
