The Cardinals have lost Jamie Garcia for the season. They're in the process of losing Jake Westbrook for way longer than the '2 starts' that we were told. And Shelby Miller can't be trusted to work out of his own jams. None of this was going on 2 weeks ago. So what the...? Wait, what's that? Sports Illustrated sent someone to cover the Cardinals historically good starters starts? Well that explains it. Our friends over at SI Classic Cover sent this week's SI cover over and it it's very nice. And by nice I mean the ONLY reason the Cardinals rotation is falling apart. I kid. I think.

St. Louis Cardinals: Jake Westbrook suffers setback

After learning that Jaime Garcia was going to be out for the remainder of the season after he undergoes shoulder surgery later this week, the St. Louis Cardinals were hoping for some good news from their other starter who is on the disabled list, Jake Westbrook.

Stl Cardinals Garcia may never be the same after surgery

The Stl Cardinals have lost pitcher Jaime Garcia for the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The injury will require surgery and cost him the rest of 2013.

He pitched two innings before being pulled from the start...

St. Louis Cardinals: Can Tyler Lyons keep up with the rest of the Cards rotation?

What a difference seven weeks has made. Out of spring training, the St. Louis Cardinals had a solid pitching staff that was exciting to watch. What fans couldn't have known at that time was how impressive of a performance they were about to put up. Arguably that performance peaked when Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright posted back to back shutouts - with one hit and two hits...

Cardinals' Jaime Garcia to see Dr. Andrews

He's a great doctor, but anytime his name is associated with a player's name, it's generally bad news.  This time, that bad news is hanging around Jaime Garcia.  The St. Louis Cardinals' veteran starter was just recently placed on the disabled list with a shoulder strain.  Now, it seems that strain may be more serious as Garcia intends to see Dr. James Andrews...

Heyman adds that the right-hander is said to have what was described as a 30- to 40-percent tear...

The cowardice of Twitter users claims another

I had long found it interesting that the two individuals who had been considered the primary candidates for the vaunted title of St. Louis Cardinals “closer of the future” back in 2009 have been among Major League Baseball’s most prominent Twitter users – until now. A trade to Cleveland took Chris Perez out of the Birds on the Bat and into an Indians uniform, but I continue...

Jaime Garcia to have season ending surgery

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia was off to a pretty good start in 2013, unfortunately his 2013 season is ending. Garcia was diagnosed with a 30-40% tear in his shoulder. Dr. James Andrews made the diagnosis and recommended the surgery he however won’t be performing it that will fall to the team doctors. Dr. James Andrews recommended the surgery, confirming the original...

Cardinals 10, Padres 2

Adam Wainwright got a nice, loud ovation from the large contingent of St. Louis Cardinals fans behind the third-base dugout as he walked off the mound with an eight-run lead with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his first victory at Petco Park, yet it almost had the feel of being at home. ''That was an awesome, awesome Cardinal reaction today,''...

Cardinals' Jake Westbrook begins throwing program

Doug Gottlieb: Cardinals Fan

Tylor Lyons punked the San Diego Padres last night to record his first major league win (and hit).  It was a performance to behold, but if you thought it was due to talent, luck or other forces unknown, you'd be wrong. It'd be because former ESPNer and current CBSer Doug Gottlieb was in the stands wearing enough Cardinals gear to make the Cardinal Cowboy blush.  ...

Daily FanDuel Picks: May 21, 2013

Shelby Miller was less than impressive yesterday in his start at San Diego, further reaffirming my belief that it really isn’t worth picking starting pitchers on the road. Today I get to put that to the test as most of the attractive options find themselves in road matchups, which forces me to go with a less-than-perfect option in a favorable home matchup.Season ResultsWagered...
