Weekly St. Louis Cardinals-focused chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.
Late Friday afternoon, I joined guest hosts Joe Quinn and Ross Peterson on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in our regular series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” This time, we discussed the upcoming 2011 World Series rematch with Texas, a key unsung Cardinal and a quick look at the 2013 draft.
Cardinals followers in central Iowa can again catch St. Louis Cardinals radio broadcasts on KXnO as well as my regular segment each week throughout the season, either over the air or via streaming. Or, if you miss it live, you can always catch the replay right here at The Cardinal Nation blog.

ST. LOUIS - First it was a moth, now it's the fly.
Matt Holliday stepped to the plate in the sixth inning on Thursday night against the Cubs and crushed a 418-foot home run. The big left fielder made it look as easy as ABC, one, two three - but he forgot to XYZ.
That's right. even baseball players forget to zip. It happens to the best of us. Just usually not in front...
ST. LOUIS -- A fourth straight lousy start figures to cost rookie lefty Tyler Lyons his spot in the Cardinals' rotation.
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny did not address the team's pitching plans after the Cardinals lost to the Rangers, 6-4, Friday night but admitted that Lyons had "a tough day."
"He had trouble getting (balls) in the (strike) zone," Matheny...
Stodgy old baseball types will tell you that they go to baseball games every day because they always see something new th…
The St. Louis Cardinals have optioned struggling lefty Tyler Lyons, who lasted just 1 2-3 innings on Friday, to Triple-A Memphis.
Right-hander Michael Blazek, a 35th round draft pick in 2007, was recalled Saturday to add bullpen depth and the Cardinals could give Lyons' spot in the rotation to Joe Kelly. The 24-year-old Blazek made it to the majors for the first time earlier...
ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals fans who've gone giddy over the booming, left-handed swing Matt Adams uses to send baseballs to faraway places surely saw this coming. This soon-to-be road trip might as well be called the "Big City" Tour.
Just don't expect the 6-foot-3, 260-pound slugger to sound as eager as his fans. That wouldn't really fit his style.
ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Cardinals cleared pitcher Chris Carpenter to resume rehabbing from a lower back injury on Friday after the team got outside medical opinions about his comeback from nerve issues.
General manager John Mozeliak said the 38-year-old Carpenter played catch Friday and was scheduled for a light bullpen session Saturday. How the former NL Cy Young winner responds...
The Baby Birds finished the night with a 4-2 record as Memphis and Palm Beach were the only losers. Oscar led the way for Memphis in the loss with 3 hits. I believe it will take a significant injury in St. Louis for Taveras to get called up. Jacob Wilson returned from the disabled list and homered in his second at bat. I’ve said it before, but Wilson has to be the surprise of the...
ST. LOUIS - Fewer than six weeks remain until the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, and you know what that means? The rumor season is about to heat up.
Because the Cardinals have a loaded farm system, plenty of financial flexibility and are primed for a pennant run, expect them to be in the middle of a lot of trade speculation. Just remember, distinguishing between fact and fiction...
In 2011 when the St. Louis Cardinals surprisingly declined to give Albert Pujols a long term contract, one of the main arguments circulating through Cardinal Nation advocating the decision was the presence of a big, young first baseman named Matt Adams who was raking in AA Springfield. Now, in the second year of the Post-Albert Era, the Cardinals are thriving and Adams has very...

Hot News for P Michael Blazek
On Sunday, the Kansas City Royals announced they have claimed right-handed pitcher Maikel Cleto off outright waivers from the St. Louis Cardinals and optioned him to Triple-A Omaha.
Though just 24 years of age, the Dominican native has been in the organization for almost 2 ½ seasons, all on the 40-man roster. Cleto had been placed there by Seattle prior to trading him to St. Louis...
ST. LOUIS (AP) Nelson Cruz snapped a ninth-inning tie with a two-run single through a drawn-in infield and the Texas Rangers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 Friday night in the opener of a series between 2011 World Series opponents.
Derek Holland was strong at the end of a seven-inning stint after a shaky start, Neal Cotts (4-1) escaped a bases-loaded jam in the eighth when Jon...
