Former St. Louis Cardinals star first baseman Albert Pujols has been involved in many ventures with his wife Deidre. The two started and continue to operate The Pujols Foundation in the St. Louis area. Now, Albert and Deidre have started their own cookware line, available via their website Pujols Kitchen. The 10 piece cookware set can be purchased for $279.99 and to nobody's surprise, the proceeds will be distributed to to charities helping people less fortunate eat. Pujols spent 2012 playing for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after signing a huge 10 year contract. The slugger hit .285 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI after starting slow with his new team. Pujols has been a star since the day he arrived in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform.  Now his wife is trying to build her star power in the kitchen by selling her cookware to generate funds for charity.  You can check her out in the kitchen below.

Angels' Albert Pujols Likely to Play in WBC

Players and teams have a difficult choice when the World Baseball Classic rolls around.  Should superstars play in the tournament held just before the Major League season starts, or should they be with their respective teams preparing for the season?  It's a difficult decision especially when injury concerns are factored in, but it seems the decision has been made in Albert...

Trout catches 550-pound grouper in Key West

Over the weekend we noticed that Mike Trout, his family, and most importantly his girlfriend Jessica Cox were heading to Key West for a little vacation. They seem like a rather tame bunch so we weren’t expecting much, especially with the whole family joining them. We checked his Twitter account this morning anyways, just doing our due dilligence, and what we saw was even better...

Angels' Trout to miss World Baseball Classic

Angels center fielder Mike Trout has informed tournament organizers that he will not play for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic in March, Trouts agent, Craig Landis, said Saturday. Trout, no doubt, would have been a huge coup for the WBC -- the 21-year-old was a unanimous selection for the American League rookie of the year and finished second in the MVP vote after hitting...

Help young Cardinals by being a host family in Peoria

A major benefit of minor league baseball is the close interaction fans can enjoy with players. Some individuals can take that personal involvement to an even higher level by opening up their homes and become host families for players. Minor leaguers are young, relatively low-paid and usually assigned at the last moment to an unfamiliar outpost far away from home. It is especially...

Cardinals Urge Fans To Support “Gloves 4 Troops”

ST. LOUIS, January 13, 2013 – The St. Louis Cardinals are urging fans attending this weekend’s Winter Warm-Up (#WWU) to donate a baseball glove in support of the “Gloves 4 Troops” effort organized by Cardinals minor league infielder Vance Albitz who hopes to collect at least a thousand baseball gloves and balls by Spring Training 2013. “This is a great opportunity to support...

Player Profile #157: Howie Kendrick | 2B | LAA

Last year, Howie Kendrick reverted back to the player he has been for his entire career; good batting average, with decent number of runs/RBI and a good amount of steals. It’s clear that his power in 2011 (18 HR) was a fluke solely based on his 16.5% HR/FB rate, which is almost double his career rate of 8.9%. He seems to have shaken the injury bug as he’s averaged a solid 148...

2013 Angels Prospects Countdown #26: Andrew Taylor

The MWAH prospect countdown marches on with the first of what is suddenly a glut of left-handed relievers in the upper levels of the system just waiting for a chance to crack the big league bullpen. Andrew Taylor Position: Relief Pitcher  Highest Level: Majors Throws: Left  Height: 6'2" Weight: 195 lbs. Age: 26  Born: 8/18/86 2012 Season Stats Double...

St. Louis Cardinals better equipped to absorb injuries in 2013

The St. Louis Cardinals took the field June 10, 2012 against the Cleveland Indians with seven of their projected starters on the disabled list and Matt Holliday on the bench with a minor injury. Not surprisingly, the team was mired in an 11-19 slump. But the Cardinals might be better prepared to handle a similar rash of injuries in 2013. Ty Wigginton will add depth to the Cardinals...

Putting Mike Trout’s 2012 season against another AL ROY to win MVP

There was plenty of clamor over the fact that Angels OF Mike Trout did not win the AL MVP this season. Personally, I thought that Miguel Cabrera deserved the award, not just because he won the triple crown, but the fact that he had as good, if not a better season. To me it was that simple. Nothing against Trout; he had an MVP type season, but Cabrera was more deserving of the award...

Colby Rasmus: Former Cardinals centerfielder tries his hand at curling

Former St. Louis Cardinals centerfield Colby Rasmus was one of the most scrutinized players in recent memory during his days in St. Louis.  Fans did not understand the kid's laid back attitude and balked at his perceived laziness in centerfield. Now that he is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, Rasmus is evidently doing his best to ingrain himself in Canadian culture. The...

2013 Cardinals Top 10 Composite Prospect List

Each year I like to compile a composite prospect list, taking the top prospects lists from across the web, assigning points to each ranking and then using these points to create a composite ranking.  I do this each February for the top 100 prospects in baseball, which can be found at my MLB Composite Prospect Index site and I also do it for my favorite team, the Cardinals. Below...

Mike Trout to pass on World Baseball Classic

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles times reports that reigning American League Rookie of the Year and MVP runner-up Mike Trout will not accept an invitation from the United States officials to play in the World Baseball Classic.  Even more telling, the source was his agent: [Trout's Agent Craig] Landis said that Trout “just wanted a regular spring-training preparation,”...

Kyle Lohse Yet to Receive Offer

Former St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse has yet to receive an official offer from a club this winter after a career year in 2012. The 34-year-old is by the far the best arm available but still has yet to field an offer most likely because he has a compensation pick tied to him since he turned down the Cardinals qualifying offer.
