As the weather turns to the heat of summer, quite literally in St. Louis actually, it generally means it is mid-season across professional baseball. Mid-season generally means that baseball All-Star games are approaching.
The 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star game is being held in Kansas City this season and there will certainly be a few Cardinals on the National League roster.
While MLB's Midsummer Classic gets all the publicity, the minor leagues have their own All-Star games as well and many Cardinals prospects have had great seasons and will play in their league's various All-Star games.
Here is a complete list of all Cardinals prospects who were named 2012 minor league All-Stars.
Triple A - Memphis Redbirds
RP- Barret Browning - 2-3 2.00 ERA
Double A - Springfield Cardinals
OF-Oscar Taveras - .323 AVG 15 HR 51 R...
BEST OF MAXIM
With the National League's top offense in place, one that will get better sometime next month with the expected return of Lance Berkman after knee surgery, the Cardinals' future this season will hinge on their pitching, which has been good to very good in the rotation and fair to not very good in the bullpen.
There has been a cause-and-effect issue in that Lance Lynn, counted...

Everybody knows how good St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is defensively. Molina has won four consecutive Rawlings Gold Glove Awards and took home the Platinum Glove Award last season, given to the league's best defender at any position.

Carlos Beltran of the St. Louis Cardinals got his 2,000th career hit on an RBI single in the third inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The switch-hitting Beltran, batting left-handed, singled to the opposite field against Kevin Correia to tie the score at 2 Friday night. During a standing ovation while waiting on first base, he doffed his cap several times.
Earlier this season...

The Pirates are in St. Louis to finish out this road trip against the Cardinals.
This figures to be an extremely tough series for the Bucs, at least to me. They won’t get to send Burnett or McDonald to the hill (although avoiding Burnett in St. Louis may be a...
The St. Louis Cardinals have come through in the clutch lately, and they'll try to continue that trend following a successful road trip.
Another strong outing at Busch Stadium from Adam Wainwright might also help the Cardinals begin a season-high 10-game homestand in winning fashion Friday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates open a three-game series in St. Louis on Friday night. Right-hander Kevin Correia will be on the hill for the Bucs. The Cards will toss right-hander Adam Wainwright.
A solid Joe Kelly start was wasted when the Cardinals bullpen allowed Miami to take a comeback win Thursday.
Baseball clubs make pitching changes either to head off trouble before it begins or perhaps even more often, to stop the bleeding before it becomes terminal. On Wednesday in Miami, the moves to the pen made by manager Mike Matheny proved fatal for the St. Louis Cardinals that night.
During the seventh inning, Cardinals starter Joe Kelly had to watch from the bench as he was removed...
First off, sorry about the outage yesterday. Things should be all fixed up now. I’m sure you missed us. The Pirates have struggled thus far against the Cardinals. They are 2-4 on the season and have lost both series. St. Louis has outscored the Bucs 34-20 this season. With yesterday’s win the Pirates have not [...]
