Sanchez claimed by the Cubs

Over the weekend the Cardinals indicated that Tyler Lyons would join the team to take Jaime Garcia's place in the rotation on Wednesday. What we didn't know was what the team would do to fit him onto the 40 man roster. Now we do. Right handed reliever Eduardo Sanchez was placed on waivers to remove […] Read More

Garcia shut down again with shoulder issues

Jaime Garcia will be shut down once again, the Cardinals announced today as they placed Garcia on the 15-day Disabled List and recalled Mitchell Boggs from Triple-A Memphis. I'm sure I'll post about Mitchell Boggs later, but he isn't fixed yet. Many fans and bloggers have already tried to pin this on the Cardinals' medical […] Read More

I just want to know how anyone with any knowledge of baseball kept a straight face while creating and then posting this graphic. I get what they were doing. These are all pitchers who have […] Read More

Matt Adams hits the DL

Matt Adams' hot start will have to wait for its next chance to burn as the Cardinals announced today that they have placed him on the 15 day disabled list retroactive to April 22nd. Adams had complained about tightness in his back and visited the club doctor yesterday to review the injury. Apparently it's bad […] Read More
