The lefty-lefty matchup

I don’t like playing armchair manager the next morning after a game and saying how I would have done things differently in order to bring my team to victory.

Kozma and Cleto return to St. Louis

As discussion hit several Cardinals forums about whether it was time to shake up the roster or not, we got our answer from the organization. It was. It is being reported that the Cardinals will recall Pete Kozma and Maikel Cleto from Memphis and Springfield, respectively. In return, Mark Hamilton and Tyler Greene will head back to Memphis. Many wondered why Mark Hamilton was still on the major league roster … Continue reading
