MLB needs to hold umpires, like Dan Bellino, accountable for their actions

MLB umpires are getting out of hand and the league is doing little about it. Last night's game between the Cubs and Cardinals was yet another example of an umpire trying to make himself bigger than the game. After getting called out on strikes last night, Matt Adams questioned the call on his way back to the dugout.  It was a mild and low-key protest, but apparently, this...

St. Louis Cardinals: Dan Bellino crossed line with Matt Adams

(via stlcupofjoe.com) Although home plate umpire, Dan Bellino, was 100% correct in calling that high-and-inside pitch to Matt Adams strike three, he clearly crossed the line when dealing with the unhappy Cardinals first baseman. The pitch that caused such a ruckus came in the top of the ninth inning when the Cardinals were looking to mount a comeback. Kevin Gregg, Cubs closer...

Cardinals' Matt Holliday leaves early with hamstring tightness

The St. Louis Cardinals may soon be listing Matt Holliday along with the ever-increasing list of players to be hit with a hamstring issue this season.  Holliday had to be removed from last night's game when his hamstring tightened up on him.  This does not mean he has a strain, but it is a sign. #Cardinals OF Matt Holliday left game with what's been called "right...

Preview: Wainwright seeks first win against Cubs in nearly 3 years

Because he's pitching Sunday night, Adam Wainwright likely won't play in the All-Star game.

Preview: Kelly looks to hault Cubs recent success

While the St. Louis Cardinals sit atop the NL Central and the Chicago Cubs find themselves near the bottom, manager Dale Sveum's club isn't to be overlooked. The Cubs try to keep rolling Friday when they continue a four-game set against the visiting Cardinals, who could be without Matt Holliday. Fourth-place Chicago (41-49) has won five of six and 16 of 27 after taking...

St. Louis Cardinals reliever Kevin Siegrist having success as if he’s Yasiel Puig

Away from all of the excitement and attention directed toward Los Angeles Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig, the St. Louis Cardinals have a rookie who has arguably had an even better start to his career.
