St. Louis Cardinals
The World Champion St. Louis Cardinals have done little since defeating the Texas Rangers in a thrilling seven-game series that ended almost exactly a month ago.
But that will likely change in the near future.
General manager John Mozeliak and the Cardinals front office brass will travel to Dallas Sunday for the start of Baseball's Winter Meetings, where they will likely begin to move on a number of different possibilities.
In addition to trying to work out a deal with free agent first baseman Albert Pujols, the Cardinals must make decisions at second base, shortstop and in the bullpen.
Mozeliak took time out of his busy schedule Tuesday to discuss a number of offseason topics during a Q&A with FOXSportsMidwest.com.
FSMidwest: As you get ready to head to Dallas, what are your goals for the Winter Meetings and what do you hope to accomplish?
Mozeliak: It's been a very short window to work on some of these things so getting down there and being in that environment wh...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cardinals remain interested in bringing back free agent Rafael Furcal but the ongoing talks with free agent first baseman Albert Pujols could eventually force them to look elsewhere at shortstop.
In a conversation Tuesday, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak admitted that negotiating with Pujols could cause the club to miss out on other opportunities.
The Cardinals are...
Pujols to the Cubs?

I’m reading all these raves that the Mets are strong players for Octavio Dotel…
Really? I mean do the people writing these headlines really belive that?
Let me dispel that myth for you if I may…
First of all, you may have already read that Jonathan Broxton – a much more inferior reliever than Dotel – just signed a one year $4 million dollar deal with the Kansas City...
No one really needs to tell you how the St. Louis Cardinals ended 2011. With a sizzling end to the season, the Cardinals overcame their Spring Training loss of Adam Wainwright to take the World Series. As one might expect of a Tony La Russa-led team, the World Series champs didn’t have a lot of rookies on their team, but the bullpen did get quite a bit of help from the likes of...
Right handed pitcher Octavio Dotel has been receiving interest from the St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers according to a Major League source close to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.
Morosi adds that although Dotel is more of a seventh-inning guy at “this stage of his career,” he could handle the eight or ninth inning when needed.
In 2011, Dotel was 5-4 with...
A week ago we published some not very nice things about superagent Dan Lozano, but not before we were threatened with a lawsuit. Hours before publishing, Lozano's attorney issued itemized denials of a handful of facts we included in our story—and denials of many more that we did not. More »
The Sox are getting a lot of heat over the length of time it took them to pick a manager -- two months, for the record (and counting, we must add, since the deal is not done).It took the St. Louis Cardinals nine days to replace the most venerable manager in the game. So perhaps some criticism of the process is justified. (St. Louis also had more time to think about it beforehand...
Talk about a sexy storyline: Albert Pujols’ No. 5 in Cubbie blue? Too bad it has no legs.
NEW YORK (AP) A full postseason share for the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals was worth 323,170, up slightly from last year but still below the record set in 2009.
A full share was worth 317,631 on the 2010 San Francisco Giants and 350,030 on the 2009 New York Yankees.
The commissioner's office said Monday a full share on the losing Rangers was 251,516, up from 246...
ST. LOUIS - So now it's starting to get interesting. The Cubs are in the hunt for Albert Pujols? Really? Can it...
Two players who have taken wildly different paths in their young professional careers garnered the Cardinals' top Minor League honors on Wednesday.
'Tis the season of spending. As the winter meetings draw near, Jon Heyman looks at 11 storylines to follow, including whether anyone can sign Albert Pujols away from the Cardinals.
FoxSports.com reports: Sources say the Cubs are pursuing both Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, partly because of the dwindling number of free-agent sluggers that figure to be available in coming years, and also the restrictions placed on spending in the amateur draft under baseball's new collective bargaining agreement.
