St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright loves baseball. If he didn’t, he probably would not be pitching professionally. But there is something in life he seems to love much, much more. That something is barbecue.
During a Q&A with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch earlier this week, Wainwright discussed how big of a foodie he considers himself to be. When Derrick Goold asked him what food he would equate to pitching Game 7 of the NLCS in 2006, the right-hander gave a convincing response.
“It would be a combination of steak and barbeque,” Wainwright said. “Because I can eat good barbeque every single day of my whole life, without question, no doubt. I can tell you that right now. I love it. I’m obsessed with it. Also, bad barbeque makes me want to fight somebody. When I have a really bad rib or a really bad pulled pork, it just makes me angry. It’s such a great piece of meat to ruin.”
You think this guy is messing around about his brisket? It certainly doesn’t sound like it. Rememb...

The way Tom Hallion describes it, David Price swore at him with his body language in yesterday's game and he responded, verbally. This makes total sense to me. Lord knows I've seen plenty of bad body language. Having 3 small kids, it is a daily occurrence. So, from now on, you know what I'm going to do? Anytime I catch my kids using bad body language, I'...
Basically, the 2010 Cy Young Award runner-up Adam Wainwright loves barbecue, but don't let him catch you messing up what could have been a perfectly good piece of meat.
The St. Louis Cardinals have purchased the contract of right handed pitcher Seth Maness. Blessed with exquisite control, and a solid arm, he should provide the Cardinals with a decent arm in the bullpen. He was pitching for Triple-A Memphis.

Last fall, the St. Louis Cardinals committed to return its Class-A affiliation to Peoria for at least the next four years, from 2013 through 2016. The only question that has arisen since was whether the Chiefs would be able to remain in the Illinois city for the duration of the contract.

The St. Louis Cardinals' bullpen is in sorry shape, and the team is hoping to get closer Jason Motte back at some point this year. The right-hander offered good news yesterday, as he told Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com that he "felt good" after playing catch for the second consecutive day.

Memphis left-hander John Gast is our clear choice as the top pitching performer across the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system last month.
St. Louis Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia came into the 2013 with mixed expectations after he struggled on the road and with injuries throughout 2012.

Garcia's eight innings were dominant as he did not surrender...
