Memphis Commercial Appeal:
Never let it be said that the St. Louis Cardinals don't believe in promoting their people for a job well done. After winning more games than any manager in club history during his five years with the Memphis Redbirds, Chris Maloney was recently promoted to St. Louis, where he'll coach first base for new Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. Then on Monday, the club promoted Ron "Pop" Warner from his spot as manager of the Double-A Springfield Cardinals to the same position with the Redbirds.

The ongoing subject of Albert Pujols’ age continues to make the papers, still without any substantiation.
The 31-year-old free agent recently visited the Miami Marlins, the only club other than St. Louis yet to show public interest in signing him. Perhaps other teams are also kicking the tires, but they have not yet rolled out the red carpet.
The Marlins not only hosted Pujols...

Miami went all out at the start of free agency, targeting Albert Pujols (amongst others), but now they're having second thoughts, due to concerns that Pujols may be older than 31.
ST. LOUIS David Freese had received similar ovations over the past three weeks, and the World Series MVP was celebrated again Tuesday night for his postseason heroics. The St. Louis Cardinals third baseman walked down an aisle as fans dressed in red throughout a filled Peabody Opera House stood in applause. The player who spent his boyhood years in suburban St. Louis waved and approached...
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch story that we read over the weekend was one that has unfortunately been told too many times since the housing market collapsed a few years back.
But it was unique in that you don't often hear of a big league manager moving into the home of his in-laws with his wife and his five children.
That's the situation that Mike Matheny faces as he enters...
Back in late September, Dan Lozano told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that being the agent for Albert Pujols and other baseball stars meant always feeling like he was wearing "a target on my back."
Though its inspiration might have been murky at the time it was originally read, the article now reads like a man setting up for a mud-slinging battle he knows is soon coming...
This was posted on Red Reporter a few days ago, and it’s rather hilarious. Witness the awesome fielding of St. Louis Cardinals’ erstwhile shortstop Ryan Theriot.
Hmm. I guess that makes it obvious why he was moved to second base in the middle of the 2011 … [visit site to read more]
You know, I had this crazy feeling that if we won the World Series that Mad Men star Jon Hamm, a Cardinals fan, would narrate the DVD film. He was not as well known in 2006 when we won seeing as Mad Men would not air until 2007. In any event, his voices provides a nice feeling while watching the highlight film.The set comes with 2 DVDs. The second one featuring the complete instant...
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- For the third time since the St. Louis Cardinals' improbable World Series championship run, David Freese was given the red-carpet treatment.
Somebody's out to get Dan Lozano. The agent for Albert Pujols, Lozano is pursuing what everyone expects to be the biggest contract in baseball, the financial and professional zenith of a career that's been two decades of success. When Lozano, 44, left the Beverly Hills Sports Council last year, he took with him his entire stable of players—including...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump
