Word up homies! Imma ‘bout ready to slap down some freaky fantasy knowledge on you. Funny, Word really does NOT like that previous “sentence”. It’s lit up like a Christmas tree! Anyway, it’s the end of the week so I want to go over some fantasy jargon with ya! Today I’ll be going over some must adds. *Small Disclaimer* I feel these adds/drops are for 12 team or more leagues. If you’re in a league with 10 teams or less don’t bother making moves yet. “Why’s that Jeremy?” our 1 fan asks (my mom probably. Thanks Mom!) 10 team leagues are just too shallow to make any drastic moves in the first few weeks. Yes if you had Drew Storen you can drop him for Guerra or whomever, but in general, there’s no sense dropping a guy you were proud to draft for a player playing over his head (Aramis for Freese, no dice!). Time to get on with it:Must AddAny temporary closer: Look, closers are going down like flies, and I know most of you “didn’t pay for saves” in your draft, so you do not want to

When you think about David Freese, you might think about a guy who put together arguably the most clutch World Series performance in history and led his team to a title. There is no questioning that Freese is a hero in St. Louis, but does the soon-to-be 29-year-old infielder have the tools needed to become one of the game’s best players? If you ask teammate Lance Berkman, it is...

The Cardinals said Freese was suffering from irritation on a finger of his right hand. He got hurt during an at-bat in Friday's home opener against the Chicago Cubs.
The Cardinals inserted Tyler Greene in the lineup to play second base. First baseman Matt Carpenter moved up two spots...

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman is injured with a calf strain and is considered day-to-day by the club. Nobody is certain how long Berkman may be out of the lineup, but many believe that he will...
Less than two weeks into its championship-defending season and key St. Louis Cardinals are already suffering injuries. While that will likely raise Cardinals’ fans blood pressure, these injuries should not cause panic, yet.

The first-week formula of home runs and strong starting pitching (and relief, too) worked again for the Cardinals Tuesday night.
Right fielder Carlos Beltran and third baseman David Freese each hit his third homer of the season, with Freese's sixth-inning, two-run drive the difference in a 3-1 win at Cincinnati. Counting the one-game victory at Miami, the Cardinals have won...
David Freese has a lot going for him in his short career.
He’s already an NLCS- and World Series-MVP.
He’s the hometown boy who saved St. Louis’ favorite sports team from elimination, that was only one strike away, and led the team to its eleventh World Series.
And that was all accomplished without even playing a full MLB season yet.
Now Freese might face his most difficult...
Entering play on Wednesday, only two batters had 10-plus hits (David Freese and Rafael Furcal) so the season is obviously still very young. It’s premature to draw conclusions based solely on the small sample sizes we have, but drop/adds and trades at this time of the year often make or break fantasy seasons. Here are our buy/sell players for week two.
David Freese, 3B, STL...
Dear David Freese,
Word on the street says you're not thrilled with me. Allegedly, last week I proclaimed your playoff heroics correlated to an elevated and unwarranted standing this season, writing a check that your injury-prone body could not cash. I advised owners not to buy the hype, that you best served their team riding the pine the first few weeks until you proved your...
Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues:
