New St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny inherits a ballclub that enters the 2012 season as the defending World Series Champions. But he also inherits a ballclub that is very different than the ones from years past. Former manager Tony La Russa, first baseman Albert Pujols, and pitching coach Dave Duncan are all gone for one reason or another. Matheny, in his rookie season...
Allen Craig's days are split primarily between the training room and the weight room. While his legs likely could handle light running, fielding drills or swings in the batting cage, the Cardinals would prefer that Craig first focus all his attention on improving his leg strength.
The Cardinals and catcher Yadier Molina have put discussions about a contract extension on hold after the two sides were unable to reach an agreement during a recent two-week period of talks.
Tony La Russa began his front-office apprenticeship with the Tigers on Tuesday, taking in Spring Training workouts with longtime friend and former White Sox colleague Dave Dombrowski. He also laid out what the end goal of his stint will be, confirming that he has had discussions with Major League Baseball about an executive position.
In 2005, Tyler Greene was a hot hitting shortstop from Georgia Tech projected to be a star at the major league level. Things haven't quite turned out that way for Greene, but the former first-round draft pick still boasts plenty of skill and could be an option for the Red Sox in the middle infield later this spring. Greene is currently in camp with the St. Louis Cardinals, who...

Tony La Russa is back at spring training, visiting with the Detroit Tigers. La Russa, who retired after managing the St. Louis Cardinals to the World Series title last year, says he's interested in learning more about the inner workings of a front office. He's known Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski for over three decades, so he's spending some time with the Tigers.
This idea of pairing the most experienced with the youngsters at camp was proposed by Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and immediately embraced by the veterans.
The boys of summer are baaack! The 2012 version of MLB Spring Training is now in full-force. You see new faces in you places, and some old faces that are happy to be back playing ball again.
