The St. Louis Cardinals announced first baseman Lance Berkman will miss eight to 10 weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery Friday. The team said in a statement said the doctors "found a partial tear in the medial meniscus, which was removed, and a ... cartilage tear, which was debrided." However, the team did not say if there was damage to the anterior cruciate ligament, an injury which had Berkman worried, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The surgery was in Houston, where he will go through his rehabilitation, the team said. He will return to St. Louis near the end of his rehab. --Curt Schilling's video-game company, 38 Studios, reportedly laid off its entire staff in Rhode Island and Maryland.

ST. LOUIS Newly promoted Cardinals reliever Chuckie Fick knows he's not the most conventional pitcher.
"I'm funky," Fick said. "I'm a different look."
Maybe it's because of his name. Maybe it's because of his low, three-quarters delivery. Or maybe it's because of his deceptive pattern of pitches. Whatever the reason, his funkiness has...
The St. Louis Cardinals optioned struggling reliever Fernando Salas, their closer much of last season, to Triple-A Memphis.
The 26-year-old Salas, a right-hander, had a team-leading 24 saves and a 2.28 ERA last year. This year he's 0-2 with a 6.32 ERA in 18 appearances.
Fick is also 26 and also a right-hander. He was expected to be in uniform Saturday night against the Phillies...
Tonight’s 7th inning at Busch Stadium was quite the party for Naked Streaker Guy who, as you can see, went on an epic NSFW run around a usually docile ballpark when it comes to bare ass. According to @tweetldee, streaker dude made it all the way around the outfield before these huge bros jumped on his bare ass.
Look, if you’re going streaking, why not blast the balls right...
ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies game at Busch Stadium Thursday night was delayed prior to the start of the seventh inning when a streaker ran on the field.
The incident occurred just as the Cardinals completed batting in the bottom of the sixth inning when a fan down the right field line jumped over wall and immediately took off his clothes.

ST. LOUIS Shelby Fetsch rushes from the mound into the arms of the love of her life. For her, everything that follows becomes a blur: the cheers at Busch Stadium, the pictures, the congratulations from strangers, the joy that comes with knowing she and her boyfriend Spc. William Johanson-Kubin of the 463rd Military Police Company are now engaged.
Fetsch's hands shake when...
ST. LOUIS -- Normally a team that takes a 6-0 lead after the first two innings should not have to worry too much about the game's final outs. Try telling that to the Philadelphia Phillies, who had to sweat the last two innings of their 10-9 win over the Cardinals on Thursday night. "Suspense is always good, as long as it comes out right," Phillies manager Charlie...
ST. LOUIS -- Normally a team that takes a 6-0 lead after the first two innings should not have to worry too much about the game's final outs. Try telling that to the Philadelphia Phillies, who had to sweat the end of their Thursday night game against the Cardinals. After watching the Cardinals battle back to wipe out 6-0 and 7-4 advantages, the Phillies got RBI singles by...
What in the hell is going on down in Tampa Bay?
Scanning the news wires for ‘St. Louis Cardinals News’ reveals the normal stories we’d expect to see the morning after a sweep. Bad puns headlining fawning prose, etc al. But one story popped up that caught my attention from the Tampa Bay Times.
“The St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce plans to honor the St. Louis Cardinals…”...
ST. LOUIS -- Kyle Kendrick came into Saturday night's start for the Philadelphia Phillies with an 0-4 record, a 5.23 ERA and the knowledge that he was facing the best offensive team in the National League. That's not a combination which would have prompted many to predict he would pitch the first shutout of his major-league career. The 27-year-old right-hander, making...
