St. Louis Cardinals: Mike Matheny is handling Shelby Miller's workload perfectly

May Is The New July

Signs that your season is going down the tubes: Your announcer reacts to a game losing wild pitch in the seventh inning by simply sighing and saying "oh boy." And I don't know if any flowery language from me can sum up Wednesday night's dumpster fire than that. Shaun Marcum was solid through six and 2/3's which turned out to be his unofficial introduction...

Rookie Watch: Miller solidifies status with one-hitter

What do Ryan Braun and Buster Posey have in common? Among other things, they both won Rookie of the Year awards after spending a good chunk of the season in the minors. Braun was called up on May 25, 2007 and hit .324 with 34 homers and 97 RBI. Posey arrived on May 29, 2010 and hit .305 with 18 homers and 67 RBI.
