Cardinals set to add Pierzynski

The latest news for Cardinal Nation is that A.J. Pierzynski is already in Chicago and an announcement of the signing will be made before tomorrow afternoon's game. The news came this afternoon that George Kottaras had reportedly cleaned out his locker after less than two weeks with the club after being claimed off waivers by […] Read More

Taveras getting plenty of opportunity

There seems to be a common refrain among Cardinals fans and even the media, it seems. Oscar Taveras isn't getting an opportunity to play in St. Louis. Mike Matheny is showing his loyalty to Allen Craig by giving him most of the playing time. That'd be all well and great. If it were true. Funny how […] Read More

Instant Replay needs some camera work

I'm watching tonight's St. Louis Cardinals game and Matt Holliday ripped a ball right down the line that was called foul. The Cardinals challenged the call, which eventually stood, but it shows a massive problem that I have with the instant replay system in baseball.

Reading quotes from the Dodgers after last night's game, they seem to be saying that hitting batters accidentally is bad, but hitting batters intentionally is absolutely okay.

That means that Wainwright's next start will most likely be Tuesday against the […] Read More

Cardinals add Kottaras

For the Cardinals, the move was motivated by the loss of Yadier Molina for the next 8-12 weeks and is a low risk move for the Cardinals. Kottaras, 31, was my […] Read More

Much ado about Yadi

This afternoon John Mozeliak announced that Yadier Molina will have surgery on a torn ligament in his right thumb tomorrow and will be out the next 8-12 weeks. Most likely that will mean that Molina is done for the season. Tony Cruz will become the Cardinals' new starting catcher in the meantime with Audry Perez […] Read More

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
