Found May 18, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The St. Louis Cardinals reportedly will place outfielder-first baseman Allen Craig on the disabled list Friday. Craig will be sidelined because of a strained left hamstring sustained in Wednesday's victory in San Francisco, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Craig was sent to St. Louis for an examination by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lyndon Gross, the Post-Dispatch reported. Craig, who is in his third major league season, was activated from the disabled list for 13 games after recovering from knee surgery in November. Craig hit .315 with 11 home runs and 40 RBIs last season. He became a breakout star after hitting three homers during the 2011 World Series. This season, he was hitting .373 with five homers and 19 RBIs. Also, the Cardinals are expected to place relief pitcher Kyle McClellan on the disabled list with right elbow pain. He underwent elbow surgery in 2006 and may have suffered a second rupture Thursday.

Cardinals wore tacky tuxedos for their road trip to LA (Pictures)

The St. Louis Cardinals decided to dress up for their short road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles on Thursday. Even though it looks like they were headed to a costume party, the actual theme for the trip was “tacky tuxedos.” As you can tell, some of those were pretty ugly looking outfits. Here’s a rundown of what some of the players were wearing: Jason Motte went camo...

Cardinals' defense takes a rare day off

The Cardinals' defense, at the top of the charts statistically for much of the season in the National League, sprang a few leaks on Thursday. And a still laboring right-hander Adam Wainwright was unable to stem the tide as the Cardinals lost a 7-5 verdict to San Francisco. Rookie Matt Carpenter, probably unfairly exposed to a giant right field in AT&T Park, missed connections...

Garcia feels right at home in San Francisco

Left-hander Jaime Garcia sometimes can be distracted by things he should have control of and by others for which he has no control. However, he displayed unwavering focus Wednesday night and mixed in a key single, too, in the Cardinals' 4-1 win at chilly AT&T Park in San Francisco. Garcia, winning for the first time since April 18, had good movement on his fastball and also...

Who is the Most Valuable Cardinal Hitter This Season?

The Cardinals’ offense has been pretty good this year. They haven’t been quite as streaky as the past, but they still have their moment. I was looking at the individual numbers and it got me thinking who would be the team MVP? In looking at the offense, I wanted to use one number that would encompass everything. I found Estimated Runs Produced (ERP) by Paul Johnson. The stat...

McClellan hopeful to avoid surgery

Fearing for the worst, Cardinals reliever Kyle McClellan got some good news Friday afternoon.

But after returning to St. Louis to be examined by Cardinals head team physician Dr. George Paletta, the outlook appears better. Fridays examination revealed a strained flexor...

Mark McGwire: Doing positive things as a hitting instructor.

On March 17, 2005, former major league baseball slugger Mark McGwire testified at a Congressional hearing on steroids in baseball.  McGwire was dressed in a business suit, green tie in honor of St. Patrick's Day, wearing reading glasses and an expression of bottled up shame. McGwire indirectly enacted his 5th Amendment rights that afternoon in Washington D.C. and repeated...

A sore and stiff right knee has kept Beltran on the bench for...
