Peavy lights up Twitter

Talk of a potential trade for Jake Peavy lit up Twitter this evening. Word is that Boston is interested in moving Peavy before tomorrow's game to make room on the roster for prospect Rubby De La Rosa. Most of the fuel for the fire came from a post by Ken Rosenthal at FOX Sports that […] Read More

The price for Price

There’s been a lot of talk amongst Cardinal fans about potentially trading for Tampa Bay starter David Price since a rumor emerged a couple weeks ago. The rumored deal at the time included the Cardinals’ Michael Wacha, Kolten Wong, and Oscar Taveras headed to Florida in exchange for Price and Evan Longoria. Further speculation was […] Read More

Garcia’s great start

Lost in the way we lost that game last night, I feel like I failed to give Jaime Garcia his due for the performance he had on Sunday afternoon. He wasn't totally sharp, made some mistakes, but he was good enough and if it weren't for an iffy foul ball call, he might have walked […] Read More

Mike Matheny’s bullpen tomfoolery

Tonight the St. Louis Cardinals found a way to once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, courtesy of some late game decisions by manager Mike Matheny.

While the pitching staff ranks as the fourth best in baseball, the offense has struggled to find its footing this year, enduring a […] Read More

Shaking up the bag

Cardinals' GM John Mozeliak made a move last night, shaking up the bag in the hopes of generating some more offense following a rough 10 days where the offense scored very little. Outfielder Shane Robinson was optioned to Memphis in the predictable move for Randal Grichuk. The surprising move, however, was optioning Kolten Wong in […] Read More

Michael Pineda and the mystery of the shiny dark spot

Last night Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was tossed from a game against the Boston Red Sox after a sticky substance was found on his neck. In his previous start against the Red Sox, Pineda had caught some attention for a similar patch on his palm. After the last start, Major League Baseball even warned the […] Read More
