UCB Roundtable: What to do with our arbitration eligible players

This past couple weeks, members of the United Cardinal Bloggers have been doing their annual post-season roundtable. Each writer or site poses a question to the group and gathers their thoughts. While John Mozeliak successfully nuked my question by already picking up Jaime Garcia‘s option this weekend, I switched gears to gauge the opinions on what to do with the team’s arbitration eligible players. The options presented were to non-tender … Continue reading

Three questions entering the postseason

On Sunday afternoon the St. Louis Cardinals put the finishing touches on their 2013 campaign that saw them finish with a 97-65 record, good for best in the National League.

Cardinals lose a tight Game 1

It’s been a theme for the Cardinals all season. Missed opportunities. The most glaring from this afternoon being a bases loaded situation in the bottom of the seventh with no outs. Ground balls from Allen Craig and Yadier Molina ended the inning without the Cardinals scoring to extend their 2-1 lead. At that point, the momentum swung firmly in the direction of the Nationals. In the top of the eighth, … Continue reading
