When Wainwright Becomes Wainwrong

When a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals gives up six runs in five innings , it’s a bad night at the office.  When that pitcher is Adam Wainwright , best get out the fainting couches for Cardinal Nation, because that just doesn’t enter into our frame of reference.

Charlie Tilson: A look back and a look at what he needs to do to be successful in Springfield

If you follow my stuff on a pretty regular basis, you would know that Charlie Tilson is one of my favorite prospects within the St. Louis Cardinals organization. He had a rough start to his career and there were some people who were mis-labeling him as a bust way too early. Tilson was the Cardinals 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft out of New Trier High School in Illinois. Unfortunately...

Cardinals are taking a hard look at David Price

Usually when it comes to trade rumors, you can discount much of what is being thrown around as just that, rumors.  However, when more than one person is hinting at someone, chances are that it is true.  Like they say "where there's smoke, there's fire".That appears to be the case when it comes to the Cardinals and Tampa Bay's David Price.  According to Joe...

Draw a Bulls Eye on Cardinals Hitters

Never before (at least since 1914) have Cardinals hitters taken first base 50 times after being plunked prior to the break as is the case this year. To...

Will the Cardinals make a big splash this trade season?

With the All Star Break out of the way (finally) and meaningful games being played again, many will be turning their focus to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. The last couple years have seen little trade activity for the Cardinals.  Last year, the Cards acquired John Axford, but not until after the trade deadline.  Before that, in 2012, the team acquired Edward Mujica...

Michael Wacha’s return more crucial for St. Louis Cardinals than Yadier Molina
