St. Louis Cardinals
Brutal. The Cardinals are absolutely brutal right now. Pitching? Awful. Defense? Rams-ish. Offense? Adron Chambers leads the team in RBIs for June. With one.Injuries have ravaged the Cardinals. Matt Holliday, David Freese, Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran have all had extended time on the DL along with Adam Wainwright and Kyle Lohse on the pitching side. What was that? 6 players will All-Star potential haven't gone on the DL? You don't say...No, I'm pretty sure that pretty much every team in the NL would love to have any of those guys in the middle of their lineup. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have all of them and continue to suck at the teat of mediocrity for the 7th straight week. Jon Jay and Skip Shumaker are nice role players. Guys that can make an impact when they're going. But they're not the guys the Cardinals counted on to carry the team in March heading into the season, so it's weak sauce to use them as the scapegoats when the team in flailing in June.La...

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. It was an overcast spring training morning in mid-March, while most hitters were finishing up batting practice and pitchers were inside enjoying some lunch.
Pitching prospect Trevor Rosenthal was not among them. He was on the bullpen mound just outside the Cardinals clubhouse, engaged in a conversation that he still remembers daily. One he takes with him to the...
ST. LOUIS Monday night was a time for dreams, and pitcher Michael Wacha met his future with familiar faces by his side.
A little after 8 p.m., family and some Texas A&M teammates joined him at his residence in College Station, Texas, by the time Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig prepared to make an announcement that changed his life.
There it was, closure for...
Over the years, I've seen some pretty crazy plays made in Major League Baseball games but St. Louis Cardinals David Freese pulled off something I've never seen before.
New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee was at the plate when he hit a sharp liner to Freese who was able to knock down the ball.
Watch as Freese goes the between the legs to throw out Gee at first...
St. Louis Cardinals chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.
Late Monday afternoon, I joined Jim Brinson and Joe Quinn on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in a special installment of this year’s series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” I reported from New York’s Citi Field after the Mets defeated the Cards in three of four games.
As part of the Nolan Ryan takeover in Texas, Chuck Greenberg was pushed out as Rangers CEO in March 2011. The Pittsburgh native has since been rumored to be interested in buying the Pirates, but owner Bob Nutting reportedly does not have his team on the market.
One club Greenberg does own is the State College Spikes of the New York-Penn League. St. Louis Cardinals fans may be familiar...

It was a random Sunday tweet from a Houston Astros follower, destined to be lost among the volumes of Twitter noise – except I couldn’t forget it.
“All Astros farm teams at .500 or better. Hasn’t happened in a long time.”
Player development is the main priority in all organizations, but playing winning baseball is important, too.
Of course, it would be ridiculous to declare...

What a weekend! The last 72 hours for Mets fans has been so surreal, I’m still wondering if it all really happened. The defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals have been held to 1 run…ONE! all series so far, Johan pitched the first Mets no-hitter in history (still trying to process that one), and R.A. Dickey said “I’ll see your no-hitter and raise you another shut...
