His stone hands prevented him from grabbing it the conventional way by leaning over the wall.  Then his momentum took him over the wall onto...

St. Louis Cardinals: Carlos Beltran’s power outage is cause for concern

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny kept All-star right fielder Carlos Beltran out of the lineup for Thursday night’s 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Matheny has been doing this all season long. He has sat Beltran often and the 36 year old has often responded.

Rzepczynski 'happy to be back' in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS -- Top pitching prospect Carlos Martinez's second trip to the majors lasted just two weeks after the Cardinals sent him back to Class AAA Memphis and called up lefty reliever Marc Rzepczynski Thursday.

The most underrated St. Louis Cardinal: Allen Craig

Allen Craig’s ninth inning catch at the wall to ensure the Cardinals’ victory Sunday may have stirred some memories of another catch Craig made in St. Louis.  In game 7 of the 2011 World Series, Craig made a leaping catch at the wall to rob the Rangers’ Nelson Cruz of a homer in the sixth inning, and then made the final out on a deep fly ball in the ninth.  Craig has spent...

St. Louis Cardinals: Come September, Trevor Rosenthal should replace Edward Mujica as closer

(via stlcupofjoe.com) Edward Mujica was an All-Star for the first time in his career this season, and he was well deserving of the honor. The St. Louis Cardinals are 25 games over .500 at 62-37, and a pretty big reason has been Mujica’s performance as closer. However, as weird as this may sound to some people, Mujica is not the answer for the Cardinals if they want to make...

According to Bernie Miklasz, the Cardinals are unlikely to trade any of their top prospects, including Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez, Oscar Taveras and Kolten Wong.  For GM John Mozeliak to even consider trading any of his big 4 prospects, the deal would have to deliver an ace pitcher or a significant upgrade at short, neither of which is currently available on the trade market...
