Found March 21, 2013 on Fox Sports Midwest:
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- David Freese homered in his first game in a week and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 3-2 Thursday. Freese had been out since March 14 with back stiffness stemming from a hard fall he took while chasing a foul ball. The 2011 World Series MVP hit a leadoff home run in the fourth and played five innings in the field. Mets infielder Justin Turner got a hit in his return from a sprained ankle. He had a pinch-hit single in the sixth, then went from first to third on hit. Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright gave up two runs on three hits, including a two-run triple by Matt den Dekker, in 4 2-3 innings. He struck out three and walked three. Mets starter Jeremy Hefner allowed two runs on five hits with three walks in five innings. Bobby Parnell pitched a perfect ninth.

Could the Cardinals lose their draft pick compensation for Kyle Lohse?

When the Cardinals made their qualifying offer to Kyle Lohse, they were counting on two things: (1) that Lohse and greedy agent Scott Boras would like turn it down and (2) as a result they would get a draft pick from the supplemental round (between the first and second rounds of the draft). However, that may no longer be the case. Any team who signs Lohse would lose their first...

Cardinals cut ties with infielder Ronny Cedeno.

In a move that is mildly surprising, the Cardinals released infielder Ronny Cedeno yesterday. Cedeno, who was brought in as a backup to Rafael Furcal, quickly became expendable when it was determined that Matt Carpenter could handle the second base job and Pete Kozma won the short stop job.  This allowed the Cardinals to use Daniel Descalso as their backup short stop and, with...

Wigginton Should Be Next Cut

The St. Louis Cardinals sent home one unproductive veteran player Tuesday in their latest round of cuts, and they need to do the same with another, even if it costs the team a relatively large amount of money. The Cardinals brought Ronny Cedeno in to spring training as an insurance policy at the shortstop position since Rafael Furcal did not recover from an elbow injury he suffered...

Cardinals Rotation: Are Innings A Concern?

The St. Louis Cardinals, according to many sources, seem to be searching for starting pitching. The one thing the team has made sure that everyone is well aware of is the depth of starting pitching in this organization.  If that is true, then why the search for another arm in the rotation? According to Derrick Goold of The St. Louis Post Dispatch, it appears the team feels the...
