Found March 25, 2013 on i70baseball:
The St. Louis Cardinals will open the season with the Arizona Diamondbacks on April 1.  Last season, the group of bloggers known as the United Cardinal Bloggers (UCB) pulled together to provide fans with an easy way to preview each series the club would participate in.  The collaborative effort became known as The Bird’s Eye View.   The UCB has once again drawn their collective talents to bring fans this newsletter service at the beginning of each series.  People who register for The Bird’s Eye View will receive an email on the first day of each series providing an in depth look at pitching matchups, key components and emerging news for the Cardinals and their opponents in the series. The writers here at i70baseball are proud members of the UCB and will contribute to The Birds Eye View periodically throughout 2013.  We invite all of our readers to sign up for this email report by filling out the form located here.  Don’t worry, your email address will only be used to send you a copy...

Could Kyle Lohse become the next Jeff Suppan?

Kyle Lohse finally found a team.  After waiting almost to the brink of opening day, Lohse signed with the Milwaukee Brewers for 3 years/$33 million. A bit less than what he and agent Scott Boras were hoping for, but at least they got a deal done. However, when I first heard about the signing, I immediately thought back to the Brewers signing of Jeff Suppan.  In case you forgot...

Jason Motte injury has all signs of long-term problem

In four years Jason Motte went from a hard-throwing catcher to a pitcher who closed out a World Series championship and became a linchpin in the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen but, as is the case for many closers, now it is his turn to land on the disabled list with arm problems. The Cardinals announced Saturday that Motte has a right elbow strain and will likely start the season on...

Cardinals place David Freese on disabled list

The St. Louis Cardinals placed third baseman David Freese on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain. Infielder Ryan Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday to replace Freese, who hopes to return in time for the home opener April 8 against Cincinnati. Left-hander Sam Freeman was optioned to Triple-A. In 12 spring training games, Freese was batting .267 with...

Fantasy Take: Kyle Lohse Signing

Kyle Lohse finally signed with a team today, and that means he should be off your fantasy team by this weekend.Look, if he's on your waiver wire, you've got to add him. Unless you found a mega sleeper, he's going to be better than your last-round pick. And if you drafted him in a late round, waiting for the day he would sign, that's a smooth move. But I don't...

Cards’ Freese out, Freeman down, Jackson back

The St. Louis Cardinals placed 3B David Freese on the DL, optioned out LHR Sam Freeman and recalled IF Ryan Jackson.

Cards lose lead, fall to Mets

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- After spending almost five years in the U.S. Navy, simply being on the mound at Roger Dean Stadium was exhilarating for St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Mitch Harris -- even if the results were disappointing. Harris gave up a pair of two-run homers and took the loss as a New York Mets split squad beat the Cardinals 10-7 on Sunday. St. Louis played with a short...

UCB Roundtable: Cardinals' players most likely to see a drop-off in 2013

One of the reasons the game of baseball is so fantastic is because it is the most unpredictable game in the world. Anything can happen at anytime because players can get hot and unfortunately, players can get cold as well. Slumps are a big part of baseball. They can last days. They can last weeks. In some instances, slumps can last an entire season. The performance of any player...
