St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman doesn't appear to care much for the new Miami Marlins stadium, saying, "there were a lot of shenanigans."
The St. Louis Cardinals placed right-hander Scott Linebrink on the 15-day disabled list because of a problem in his right shoulder.
The Cardinals purchased right-hander Victor Marte from Triple-A Memphis and he is in uniform for Friday's game in Milwaukee. Marte has 30 career appearances, all with Kansas City.
Linebrink is sidelined with capsulitis, a condition that can result...

One down, 161 to go, right?
I think the assumption around baseball was if Albert Pujols left the Cardinals, he would leave a husk of a team behind him. If his teammates didn’t prove their worth enough throughout their playoff run in 2011, they’ll get ample chance to do so in 2012. They should be up to the challenge, as this roster was especially well...
Jayson Stark did an article for ESPN yesterday that talked about some of the St. Louis Cardinals’ reactions to the new stadium in Miami. I found some of the comments pretty damn funny…

Premise of Video: It’s Rafael Furcal with his game pants down and making some corrections to his uniform, but shows just how many different angles cameras will have at this Marlins Ballpark. State-of-the-art, you know.
Climax of Video: Easy, ladies. No dong to be seen here.
Conclusion: If this is any indication of things to come this season, expect...

MIAMI (AP) -- Kyle Lohse didn't allow a hit until the seventh inning and pitched into the eighth Wednesday night to help the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals spoil the Miami Marlins' debut in their new ballpark, 4-1.

A lot can happen in one offseason, and the reigning World Champion St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins are a perfect example.
The Marlins are kicking off 2012 with a complete face lift: a new name and a spastic jazzy new logo on their uniforms, a new skipper in Ozzie Guillen along with a few high-end acquisitions like Heath Bell, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Carlos Zambrano...
