Post Reporting Wainwright Might need Tommy John Surgery

What could be worse than not signing Albert Pujols to a REASONABLE extension?  How about Adam Wainwright needing Tommy John surgery?  Read the post story below for more details, but this is terrible news for the team.  I’m not sure how insurance plays into this, but I can’t imagine the team going outside the organization [...]

Jaime Garcia is the best Cardinal starting pitching prospect since?

While watching the game last night I was telling my wife about the new hot Cards pitching prospect painting a masterpiece against one of the National Leagues more potent offenses.  I noted he was left handed, threw in the low nineties and has a variety of off-speed pitches that are just nasty.  Even my three [...]

Is Pujols Worth the Money?

Is Pujols Worth the Money?

Check out my latest question posed to the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB): Is Pujols worth the contract the Cardinals must give him in order to keep him? The answer is more complicated than you might think.

UCB Radio Hour to Interview Cardinals Minor League Director

Dustin from Whiteyball is interviewing John Vuch, the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League Director, with Nick from Pitchers Hit Eighth on Saturday. Find out more information here.

Tyler Greene – Dark Horse at 3B?

All seems fairly tranquil in redbird nation.  The rotation has one question at the five spot, the bullpen really needs an experienced, hard throwing option to spell Franklin and it’s up to a rookie to man the hot corner – but which Rookie?
With Holliday back in the fold, the cards are going to give Freese [...]

The Slippery High Ground

Mark McGwire finally talked about the past yesterday, and a flood of perfect people have opened the gates to chastise him on their moral high ground. There are comments to disagree with to be sure, but everyone is focusing on the negative and not giving any thought to the positive. This article has both.

A Home for the Hollidays

A Home for the Hollidays

The ownership has done their part to bolster the Cardinals with the signing of Matt Holliday, but is it a good deal? Some people will say that paying Holliday what he is worth is neither good nor bad (it’s just average), but is there a value in elite talent that is difficult to quantify?

6 is a Serious Number

6 is a Serious Number

If you’ve ever been number curious, this number 6 stuff is serious. Find out more about the Cardinals hot stove league with Holliday and the importance of 6. (It’s serious)

Whiteyball Into the Hall of Fame

From Stltoday per Rick Hummel:
“Dorrel Norman Elvert “Whitey” Herzog, the favorite son of New Athens, Ill., and perhaps the most popular manager in Cardinals’ history, was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame this morning in voting conducted by a special Veterans Committee which met on Sunday here.
The 78-old-year Herzog, the 10th person to manage [...]

Cyber Monday Special, Cards Resign LaRue

The Cardinals have resigned LaRue to a one year deal, but may not be done at the catchers position according to Reid Laymance of STLToday.com.  Speculation in twitterland (from @Pitchershit8th) is that this means catching prospect Bryan Anderson is either gone or being moved from the catching hole.
No word on any additional Holliday shopping, pardon [...]

My take on McGwire

My take on McGwire

“I’m here to talk about the past.” Those are the words Cardinal fans are longing to hear from their fallen slugger. Will Big Mac finally clear the air and put the issue behind him (and the rest of Cardinal Nation)?

Roster shakeup, Vol. I

The last 24 hours have been pretty eventful for the Redbirds (both the St. Louis and Memphis varieties), as John Mozeliak has begun paring the 40-man roster for the impending Rule 5 Draft. Thankfully, this is a high-class problem. Being forced to make tough moves now indicates talent depth in the system that needs draft protection – with guys like Bryan Anderson, Daryl Jones, John Jay, Allen Craig, and Mark Hamilton (among others) all being Rule 5 eligible.

Off-day nonsense

Off-day nonsense

Rather dull day for baseball today.  In between news that Akinori Iwamura was dealt to the Pirates (sorry for the Heyman link) and that Craig Calcaterra is going to drop the gavel and blog baseball full time, there just wasn’t a lot going on.
So, naturally, I got to surfing.  Actually came across something pretty cool, [...]

10/28 Leap of Links

Lots of interesting finds w/r/t beisbol on the intertubes today.  Hopefully its enough to keep you going until 7:57 ET:

Welcome Back to the Lumberjack

Finally, Mark McGwire is a brand name associated with St. Louis Cardinal baseball again.  No longer a steroid-fueled pariah, he is undoubtedly anxious to not talk about the past and resume his life of contribution to the game.  His role as hitting coach hopefully will be viewed as an offering of an olive branch to [...]
