Articles are popping up, in which the merits of trading away the catcher before he “does a Pujols” to the Gateway City are being weighed. In terms...
The Cardinals and pitcher Kyle McClellan avoided arbitration on Tuesday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal shortly before they would have exchanged arbitration figures. The club did not disclose the value of the contract.

Left Field may not be a power position in the National League Central, but with Matt Holiday, it is shaping up to be one of the key positions for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Matt Holliday is a great player. After his first season in 2004, when he batted .290, he has failed to hit .300 only once, and that was last year at .296 which was plagued by injury. His average stats over a...
